    I am fairly new to this Oxbridge thing as I didn't expect very good grades. However, after a surprise on results day I've decided to give it a go. I have researched both courses ( I want to do law) and I love both. My results are as follows:

    GCSE's (taken whilst attending a really under-achieving school)
    5A*'s, 4A's, 1C

    AS levels (taken after moving to a Grammar school)
    Biology = A
    History = A
    Philosophy = A
    Politics = A
    (With an average UMS percentage of 95%)

    Therefore my question is, what University, if any, would I have a greater chance of success with? Any opinions would be helpful.
    Thanks

    Cambridge due to your UMS scores.

    Definitely Cambridge. Cambridge care more about your UMS %, whilst Oxford care more about your GCSE grades.
