    I achieved 5A*'s 4 A's and a B at GCSE. I got the B in English Literature. I'm thinking about applying to Uniq for computer science. Will my grades hold me back?

    I know it sounds vain, but I've seen so many people who get 8 A*'s and still don't get in. I don't mean to sound like a D**k, but I was just wondering ☺

    It's not going to be the deciding factor. UNIQ looks for much more than grades - which school you went to (I would imagine that schools with limited history of sending students to Oxford are preferred - this is a WP scheme after all) and your personal statement, for instance.
