Does anyone know how seriously GCSE grades are taken? I underperformed pretty heavily at GCSE, achieving only 2A*s 7As and 2Bs... I also have a FSMQ grade A (which was max for the one i was doing).
However having realised i actually need to work to get into a decent university, i achieved 3 A's in my AS-levels, with 296/300 in my maths paper!
I know that Oxford don't ask for UMS but i was hoping to pop it into my personal statement in the hope that it might really show how much i underperformed at GCSE, but if they don't read ps then I've got the same problem all over again!
