I'm commited to lots of subjects, Im only 16! I haven't decided my AS levels properly yet...!
Don't worry, you'll decide soon enough. Just take what you think you'll enjoy, that's my advice.

I'm just undecided about my options, doesn't mean I wouldn't do well at a good university.

yeah like a lot of people have said, i did great in my gcses and considered oxford. all was going swimmingly until my AS results when i got AAD so that sort of meant i couldnt really apply as even with resits i wouldnt be able to get that third A. but it's funny how things work out as i'm now goin somehwere which, in my opinion, is even harder to get into than oxbridge and yet i really really really can't wait to start there and cant imagine goin anywhere else!

I've been dreaming of going to Oxbridge.
Totally in love with everything about Oxford, it's beautiful - ever since I auditioned for a film there aged twelve i've been travelling alone via a 4 hour train trip.
I just love it!

Plus its fantastic for shopping x)

Well i'd love to go, but

a) as people are saying, it's early days. How can I possibly know how I will feel next year after results?

b)only if the course was good... course must take priority

c)the likeliness of me getting in is horrendously low considering the competition and that fact that I see myself as a rather boring and average candidate

so all in all, almost 0 chance of me getting there.

Why do you say that? Your predicted grades look pretty good to me. As long as you do the required subjects for your course and get the required grades you stand a good chance. Besides, grades (specially GCSE grades) are not the only deciding factor. You have more than a whole year to do extracurriculars and other things to make you a 'less boring' applicant. So why not give it a try?

Unless you dont want to go there...

Because they want you to comfort them when in reality they probably have as good a chance as anyone else.

I've definitely thought of it, and there's nothing wrong with trying. Aim for the highest - pushing yourself to even an interview rejection at Oxbridge will be enough to get into almost any other university of your choice (i.e. you'll probably have AAA and have good qualities).
Balls.

I got an Oxford interview and got rejected outright from Durham, Warwick and York. Aim low kids, aim low. (don't really )

God i'm still bitter. :rolleyes:
