    Hi there!
    I'm in my AS year and doing AS exams at the end of May and through to the end of June.
    I'm hoping to apply for chemistry at:
    Oxford
    Cardiff
    Queen's
    Edinburgh
    Birmingham

    Some people think I'm not smart enough or good enough to get into Oxford. In my GCSEs I got 9As and 1A*. All through my school life I have had top grades. Recently I've lost motivation and I'm hoping this will bring it back.

    For A Level I'm studying history (CCEA), maths (CCEA), chemistry (OCR) and physics (CCEA).
    My predicated grades are:
    History - A
    Maths - A
    Chemistry - A
    Physics - A/B

    If you have any advice or useful revision tools that will help me achieve my dream of Oxford please comment to help!
    Thanks!

    It really depends on how you revise best. I find GoConqr is very useful for me.

    Unless you went to a school where there were pretty much no A*s you'd have a decent chance. However Oxford do place an emphasis on many A*s at GCSE. Have you considered Cambridge? They place less emphasis on them...
