Can You Get Into Cambridge With Bad GCSEs?

Yes, it is certainly possible to get into the University of Cambridge with bad GCSEs. It may hinder your application to have poor GCSE results since they are taken as a performance indicator, but since Cambridge does not have any GCSE grade requirements, it is not a barrier to entry in itself. Also, if your A level results are outstanding, it should be clear that you have a lot of academic potential, the key attribute that university admissions staff are looking for. Besides A levels, you should have an excellent personal statement. The specialist Cambridge Admissions Tutors at The Profs can help you make your UCAS application as deserving of an offer as possible, even with poor GCSEs. In fact, those that work with us more than triple their odds of getting into Oxbridge compared to the national average.
