I think this is worth having a look at, about students at oxbridge. There are people with GCSEs that aren't considered that great to some people for oxbridge such as a girl taking French and only getting 1A and 9Cs. However people can make up stories on this site I think lol!

My school's pass rate for GCSEs (A* - C) is 65% (and continually decreasing)
Will I get special consideration, i.e. extra points for oxbridge? :rolleyes:

Nope. 65% is well above the National average (haven't you read the rest of this thread?)...

I've lost count of the number of times I've said this now, but Oxbridge especially look at many more things besides GCSE grades; personal statement, reference, submitted written work, written tests and interviews. As long as the other parts of your application are strong, having one weak area isn't the be all and end all, and besides, 6 A*s and 3 As is brilliant! That would give you a points score of 7.8 at Cambridge. I'm applying there with 1 A*, 5.5 As and 3 Bs, which is a points score of 4.3, so as long as you do reasonably well at AS and are predicted at least AAB at A-level, you should give it a go. All you have to lose is the application fee and 1 choice out of 6 on your UCAS form, but if you don't apply you might always regret it.

As for which schools are 'good' and 'bad', the national average is I think 54%, but it may have gone up this year, so if your school's pass rate is lower than that, you'll probably get some extra points.

yeah 7.8 is good enough, I had exactly the same score.

(and you can ask cambridge for a refund if you really can't afford the application fee. :rolleyes: )
