    I was wondering what do you think the percentages are for all the things the University takes in to account. e.g

    70% A level grades
    20% personal statement
    10% GCSE's.

    Thats just an example.
    What do you guys think?

    I would say

    75% A Level

    20% PS

    5% Other. GCSE's imo would be like 1-2%. Hardly important

    A-levek grades are going to be important up to the point of meeting the offer, before they know this all they have is your predicted grades and your PS, and interview if you are called for one, GCSE really depends on the uni
    your PS is going to give the person a better judge of you then predicted grades, people get rejected from uni even with A's because of a poor PS

    Yeah, definitely, for the majority of students (college leavers). However, if you have no formal qualifications or are a mature student you can demonstrate your ability to get through a degree with life and work experiences.
