    He only got 15 A* grades at GCSE...

    What gives you the impression that somewhere as prestigious as London Metropolitan University is going to want him?
    He'll need another 6years of alevels to get there with those gcses...

    I'm currently at sixth form and I am predicted 5 A*s at a-level.

    Here are my GCSE Results:
    1. English Lit. - A*
    2. English Lang. - A*
    3. Mathematics - A* (100%)
    4. Statistics - A*
    5. Biology - A*
    6. Chemistry - A*
    7. Physics - A*
    8. History - A* (100%)
    9. Geography - A*
    10. French - A*
    11. German - A*
    12. Spanish - A*
    13. Latin - A*
    14. ICT - A*
    15. Computing - A*


    Do I have any chance at studying History at Oxford?
    No, I'm sorry. Your grades are very average, but with a very good personal statement and strong AS grades you could have a chance at the likes of UCL/Warwick/Durham, with a bit of luck.
    Hope I helped!

    Sarcasm at it's finest!

    OT: 15 A*s is amazing OP, just bare in mind that you'll need more than just GCSEs to get into Oxford.
