I wanted to know if these GCSE grades are good enough for Cambridge or Oxford. Thank you.

They're not the best seen for an Oxbridge applicant but you have 1 A* so you definitely have a chance. It also depends a lot on the subject you applied for, your AS grades and your predicted A2 grades. If you feel that your school didn't offer you a great education, they also make an allowance for bad schools, so your application will be "flagged"
What subject/s are you thinking for applying for, out of interest?
hey thanks for the reply
I wanted to study LAW got 4As predicted at A2, what do you reckon - any better Uni for LAW
I think it depends on course and university - I've heard Oxford look quite critically on GCSE grades, whereas Cambridge places far more emphasis on modular AS scores. Either way, high enough AS modular scores would still give you a running chance - your GCSE's won't be as high as the majority of others applying, but are by no means bad and can be compensated for by strong performance at A Level.
