So where are you applying? What are your Grades or perdicted grades?
What were your GCSE results? and also have you applied yet?

GSCE: 8A*, 3A's
AS: AAAA (Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics +A in general studies which doesn't really count...)
Predicted: A*A*A*A* - Although these are basically because the school gives anyone applying to Oxford lots of A* predictions, whether I get them is another matter !
