    Hey I got:

    GCSE : A*AAAABBBBBCCC (My A* is an distinction which is equivalent to an A*)
    AS : ABCC (Full A2 level Maths , AS Electronics , AS Computing , AS History)

    Predicted Grades:
    A*AA (A2 Further Maths , A2 Electronics , AS Critical Thinking)
    But my math teacher might not predict me an A* so my predicated grades could be AAA

    What I aim to achieve:
    A* - A2 Math (1 retake)
    A*/A - A2 Further Maths
    A*/A - A2 Electronics (1 retake)
    A - AS Critical Thinking
    A/B - AS History (1 retake)
    C - AS Computing

    I was meant to get A* in my maths this year with A in electronics and A in computing. I was a 2 marks of the A* in maths ,1% of an A in Electronics, and even though I was 0.5% of a B in computing I messed that up.

    But I looking to rectify my results this year especially with a more relaxed time table this year, so do you think I could get into oxford.

    PLEASE READ BELOW:
    Plus my friends who are looking to apply to Oxbridge are telling me to go for it because, they believe I will do exceptionally well in the entrance exam and my tutor thinks that I could handle the interview as I know my stuff about the history maths e.g. Archimedes, Pythagoras, Christopher wren to Andrew wiles. Plus I went to India to teach kids Maths and have other extra curriculum things on my application.

    So do you think I should apply to oxford?

    Please Reply ASAP.

    If you have any extra option I would say yes, otherwise you'll always wonder what if, but there might be a fair amount of people with higher grades than you, not that your results are bad at all xx

    Go for it. But you realise that the History of Maths is going to be largely useless in the interview? They'll ask you hard Maths questions, not questions about Andrew Wiles' life!

    If you really do think you'll do 'exceptionally well' on the MAT (i.e. 90+) you're pretty much guaranteed an offer.
