No probs, just being honest!

You got good grades - even for oxbridge, those are certainly respectable grades.

BTW: Which subject are you going to be applying for?

I am going to be applying for Physics!
I want to apply for English, it's definitely my subject, I love it and am really good at it, though I say so myself.

Someone from my school got an offer from Oxford to do Physics!! And another to do maths!

I think I'm not talented in anything. I've never been better than everybody all my life in any subject (well maybe in some things) and I'm too lazy to work hard now, so I'll probably miss out :mad:
I'm as lazy as hell. I'm only good at classics really and Rugby. I got good grades in my other subjects because I know how to pass exams down to a fine art, i'm not good at the subjects at all.

I'd at least apply. Like I said, the people applying with A*/A's are often dumb as pigsh*t, at least you think for yourself. Anyway, you get to have a good laugh round one of the uni's even if you dont get in.

Here's another thing to suggest that Oxford don't care about the language that much. Although, as the link I posted earlier shows that they want a GCSE of C or above in Maths, Science, English and a Language, the page that gives entry requirements for specifically subjects SPECIFICALLY SAYS GCSE Maths to read Law. If doing GCSE maths was a matriculation standard (which it said it was before), then why would they specifically say it? I imagine the same applies to languages, and I doubt they care honestly.

You are such a nice person. No one has ever really encouraged me before and I wish I could socialise with UKL people all my life, this is really a different world for me. You are really intelligent and I like your fair views which aren't biased and you have a good understand of the 'real world' and I'm positive you'll make a great lawyer.

I think I will apply and I know people will tell me to 'go for it' or 'don't bother' but I haven't listened to them all my life so I wont bother now. I do have things to my advantage I suppose, I shouldn't technically be doing well but I am And after I've finished on here I'm going to do some work and I'll talk to my brother and sister (who motivation comes easy to as they both aren't that able - my brother got an E in his mocks for Spanish and then got a C!) and see if they can help me feel motivated.
Good for you

LOL... I don't know if I will actually, it's a nice idea. I don't have any GCSEs yet, so I can sit here and say I will/I wont and it all just depends.

Rejection! You haven't even had your interview, you are really intelligent and if they want you they'll take you and if they don't... then it's their loss!

Oxford is not what it is made out to be. Its not even the best for Physics anyway.

LMFAO.
Sorry. I have no idea what that means. I think Imperial is supposed to be good for physics.

I'd agree (although I know nothing about it), it just sounds like too much hard work to get in and whilst you there... maybe Bolton looks funner.
