it all depends on predictions - they wont be finding out your AS grades so as long your school can give you at least AAB prediction then you've got a shot. i had ABBB when oxford offered me a place (but AAA prediction)

Also, you dont have to cash in your as grades, so unis (apart from cambridge) dont see them. I imagine however that you can only really pull this off with good unis when you have strong gcse's (all a*/a's) and AAA/AAB prediction. Not 100% sure on this though (Ive asked in another thread).

I've heard that Oxbridge go to 'less privileged' Sixth Form institutions, as part of their 'Oxbridge-is-for-everybody' scheme and make offers of AAA to ABBB students, if they think they're good enough.

Really? What school did you go to? What were your GCSEs like? And finally, your PS was awesome?

GCSEs - 7A*, 4A. went to kent college which is a very average private school. and i'm not sure if my PS was that awesome, was ok i guess. i guess i must interview well (which is what matters the most for oxbridge).

No offence but why should someone be offered a place in LSE with C grades. LSE wouldnt even offer me a place with AAB so theres no chance of a place with C's. Set your a sights a bit lower there are great universities out there that are not called UCL, LSE Oxford or Cambridge.
