    Hmm, well if this is going to Maths then it won't matter, but if it is going to Further Maths, you ideally would want to get 90+ anyway. It just makes you stand out of the crowd really

    well when you do apply, the chance of oxford asking for the A* is very likely. SO I would say that if this year you got say A*A*A/A*AA then you are in for a good chance.

    Usually Oxford candidates usually get high grades so that would give them one less reason to reject you. But it also comes down to your interview technique and a good personal statement.

    For the personal statement get it done early and get it checked by the personal statement helpers a few times.

    But worry about your exam for today.

    Well you can't get A* at AS level, but you can get really high A's

    Here are the current econ courses at Oxbridge: http://www.cam.ac.uk/admissions/unde...ics/index.html
    http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...ics_and_4.html

    This can give you more info. Hope that I helped

    what do u mean open for discussion? sorry im kinda new to students rooom
    We cannot discuss about exams or even say how easy/hard it is.
    None about exams till 12.00am(GMT) of the next day.

    I got 10 warning points for it:mad::mad:
    So my suggestion would be just stalking the thread and not write anything until midnight

    Best of luck
