    Why didnt I work hard enough to get top grades in GCSE..?
    I know I could...

    But it's too late now!There isnt enough time to retake some GCSE exams..Im just going to pray for my unis wont pay much attention to my GCSE results..
    they are rubbish to me

    I bet everyone else has done really well in GCSE!

    If you underachieved, forget it and concentrate on A-levels. If you perform excellently, GCSEs won't be worth anything if you prove you can do much better by your A-level results.

    Good luck!

    yeah, there's nothing you can do about it now just concentrate on your a levels
    I'm not going to pretend it won't put you at a disadvantage if you're applying to top unis but you certainly aren't the only one to feel this way!
