    maybe, highly depends on A-levels

    Also, Oxford and Cambridge are not the only 2 universities in the world.

    I think they'd be considered on the low end of the spectrum, but GCSEs alone would not rule you out of Oxford. Though you'd stand a better chance at Cambridge who focus on AS UMS rather than GCSEs.

    oh and also, to answer your question about good A-levels, have a look at their list of facilitating subjects

    Realistically, you want to eliminate all chances of a B for Oxford University from what I have read. So I guess it's time to work, work and work.

    Edit: spelling

    You need all A*/A for Oxford but if you don't get them there are a lot of other good universities around.

    Rather depends on what you want to study at Oxford.

    Hello there. Oxford and Cambridge do not have any specific GCSE entry requirements although the most of their students have A*/A majority; go to this link https://uni-of-oxford.custhelp.com/a...into-oxford%3F . So my advice for GCSE would be to try to get as little Bs as possible and get the As and A*s. For A-Levels you're looking at at least AAA but preferably A*AA in your three A-Levels and if I was you I would do Maths, History and English Lang for A-Level because they go well together and you appear yo be good at them. With those subjects you have so many options open regarding your degree options.

    Good luck with your GCSEs.
