Can I get into Uni of Edinburgh with my GCSEs?

I got these for my GCSEs: 999877766.

I'm doing the IBDP program and am predicted 777 in my HLs as well as a 42/45 overall.
I'm just scared about my GCSEs because my school is competitive. However, I joined mid y10 from IB MYP which ended up affecting my grades.

I'm applying for LLB Law & Business, which is a competitive course. However, I got 9s for Business and English and GCSE and they are my HLs.

Can I still get into Uni of Edinburgh?

I don't think GCSEs matter as much, do they? But your IB predicted grades are fantastic!

I don't think your GCSE grades will hinder you that much from getting offers, and since you have very good IB predicted's I'm pretty sure you could give it a shot

As long as you got a 4 in maths and 4in English (either english) most unis will accept you but some will ask for a minimum of 6 in both. It depends on the university.
