    I’ve got to support my fellow historian aliel on this one. If you convince them at interview that you have the aptitude and enthusiasm for your chosen subject, I think they will be prepared to overlook a C in GCSE Food Technology…

    Sure, having great GCSE's help, but when you're applying to a uni who interview, they're going to be in a much better position to test your aptitude for your one chosen subject, and at the end of the day it is that which will decide whether or not you are offered a place.

    Say that you found A'levels much more engaging and as a result, you worked harder. It modestly implies that GCSEs were too easy for you. Don't worry about GCSE grades, mine were not much better than yours and they didn't make an issue of it. The level you can achieve now is the most important bit. Good luck! (What college btw?)
    That sounds like a good thing to say! Thanks.
