    Hi gus,
    I am pretty sure you are sick to death of these topics ; I seriously need to ask : Despite being predicted 5/4 A*s at A level, will 4A*,6As and a B hold me back when I apply next year?


    Oxford looks at GCSEs more than Cambridge, but in comparison to interviews, A Levels and PS, they don't make a giant difference whether you have 4A* or 6A*, but obviously having better GCSEs would give you a better chance of getting an offer. Most people who get an offer have majority A* grades.
