Do I have a chance at getting into Cambridge ?
I have just recently sat my GCSEs and I got my results back the other day . I’ve always wanted to go to Cambridge and study history and politics but my GCSE grades have made me unsure if it’s worth applying , I recently gained a fully paid scholarship to a private school But my grades weren’t the best. I will state my results in the old fashioned manner.
Combined science- a*/a
History - a*
English literature a**(double a*/9)
Health and social care - distinction star
I also feel like I am portrayed better through my interpersonal skills and interview as opposed to on paper , but I will ensure I get the a levels I need
I would just like a realistic opinion , thank you !

Why put the old markings? it is now 1 to 9. Most pupils take 9 or 10 subjects you have opted for 7. You will need 3 good A levels before you can apply. No harm in trying.
My Grandson is working his socks off to get 9s in 10 subjects as he wants to go to Cambridge.
