I am currently planning to apply next year (entry 2005) to either oxford or cambridge to study Geography, i am predicted all As at A-level but i am not sure if my GCSE grades are up to the standard they may expect. Could anybody tell me if these grades would be good enough for me to stand a chance of being able to gain entrance.

If you could possibly inform me it would be very helpful.
Great grades, better than mine.
Applying to Oxbridge is a stressful, miserable experience IMO, I wouldn't wish it upon anybody. Though I would say you have to try, don't you.
Yeah you should apply - you got better grades than me and I was offered a place. You can make the actual decision after you've got your As-levels.
It's really not as stressful experiance as people make out - I quite enjoyed my interview.
I think he just wanted us to say how amazing his grades were
lol, not exactly. I jus see these droves of public school boys with 10 A*s applying and i thought what chance do i stand against them.
I should have applied to oxbridge just to give the admissions tutors the biggest laugh they ever had! I do have some A's but not the A's they are looking for.
My sisters not applied to Oxbridge even though she got 8 A*s in her GCSE's and got 5 A's in her ASs. So just because you are doing well it does not mean oxbridge is the only option. Places like Warick, York, Nottingham, Manchester, London are all good universities. Even Paisley is very good (to laugh at!).
