Basically as long as you are predicted good grades and write a decent personal statement, then that's all oxford will look at, they place far more attention on the LNAT and interviews to decide who to let in.
I wouldn't be concerned it sounds like it was just a bad day, try to do as well as you can in the upcoming exams!

What makes me angry is that some schools, in particular mine, dont see you as as good a person as someone who is fairly good Oxbridge material. They say that they require mostly A*s at GCSE, but surely your A-LEVELS should carry more weight? As well as how well rounded you are as a person, not how "perfect" you are perceived to be in anything and everything? The Oxford website states that it " is more important that a potential Oxford applicant has a GCSE profile which is strong overall (i.e. contains a large majority of A and A* grades)." So by what they are saying, anyone who has a LARGE MAJORITY of A OR A* GCSE Grades, Good grades at A-Level, shows strong passion for their subject and has experience/wider reading around it and is a well grounded person who gets involved with their community, school and other activities has just as much chance as any academic A* robot.
