    The thing is it's only through getting my results that I realised just how unimportant GCSEs are in the grand scheme of things.
    Having said that, as far as I (someone who just got their results on Thursday too) know, yes. I got grades that were kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii nda similar to yours, and people have told me they're good enough to get into Oxford and Cambridge., so I don't know whether that does apply to you, but I would think so.

    hi, my brother attained 3A* 4A and 3B and managed to get into law at oxford.
    however he was at a very slight disadvantage because his grades were considered low in the cohort.

    However in the LNAT and interview stages he performed exceptionally well which strengthened his application along with A's at AS levels.

    My advice to you would be to work very hard next year and get as much interview and LNAT practice as possible because with your grades it is very possible to get into law at oxford providing you have a strong all round application (GCSE grades are by no means the only factor being considered)

    Lastly, as is said on oxfords website "Successful applicants typically have a high proportion of A and A* grades."
    which you do, so i wish you the best of luck and well done on your results.
