    So, I've been reading around on here and seeing loads of people get really worried about not getting into Oxford with 12A*s and an A in GCSE. I got one A, four Bus, three Cs, a D and an E. I haven't got my predicted A level grades yet. I'm studying Maths (which I got an A in), History (a B) and Government and Politics. So, do I stand any chance at all?

    so you're applying to oxford? I suggest cambridge is better, they don't take GCSE's too seriously. But you have to do really well at A Level.

    Oxbridge are not the only unis - do not stress yourself out about it. With those grades you have no chance at all but there are many other excellent universities that will accept you but you need to get good A levels

    I've also heard that they take into account personal situations at the time. Would this affect it in any way?

    honestly why not try? Best case scenario they give u a chance with an interview and u seriously amaze them worst case they reject you. You only loose 1/5 of your potential offers and you are bound to get a place at other unis. You just need to impress them with maybe your ps in general and they will take into account any personal issues and your schools reputation.
