my gcses aren't that good (all fives and 2 sixes). I will be applying to access to engineering soon and have been studying all of the courses that will be included in the subject for the past year (so I think I should do really good).

will my gcses hold me back? I want to get into data science and have been learning python as well. I just know that you have to apply really early on to universities and since access courses are only 1 year I don't even think I will have a predicted grade by the time I would have to apply for university.

your gcses don’t actually matter much to universities, they make decisions based on your level 3s (a levels and btecs). as long as you’ve passed your basics ie maths, english and science (which based on the all fives and sixes you’ve mentioned, you definitely have), you don’t have much else to worry about, just what you are currently studying. access courses (as far as i’m aware? someone correct me if i’m wrong) also have lower requirements than a full 3 year degree.

hope this helps!
