    I'm really disappointed
    I got 6 A stars
    and 5 As
    but all my peers at school got 9 or more A stars
    it's a selective grammar called The Henrietta Barnett School

    What are my chances of getting into Oxford for PPE if I get all A stars in Econ, Maths, History and Further Maths next year?
    They're really great grades however, you achieved below average grades compared to the school which Oxbridge and other uni's will look at. However, ace your A Levels and do amazing on the pre-interview tests (Very important for Oxford as they use this to decrease the amount of people they give interviews to), have a smashing personal statement and a very good interview and you will have a good chance! Don't lose hope

    6A* 6A

    Was disappointed with English language and RE as I was very close to the next grade. However I was very pleased with maths and DT A as I was not expecting it.
