    Hey, so If I want to study at Oxbridge I understand my GCSE grades are important because both unis look at GCSES as well as A levels. Law at Cambridge is A* A A and at Oxford it's AAA at a level but in terms of GCSES, my results weren't amazing. I got 8As and 2 A*s whereas most of their successful candidates have like anywhere between 5- all A*s
    Will my GCSES hinder my chances even if I get those grades at A level? Also if I take 4 A levels (Psychology, Philosophy&Ethics, English Lit and Math) and an AS in creative writing, and do the EPQ next year will that make me a stronger candidate? (Instead of dropping one of the four this year as another AS) also since I'm taking so many, will I be able to still get in if I get A*AAC or like A*AAD or something? Like if I meet the requirements but mess up one of my A levels.

    Your GCSEs are fine, stop worrying, they won't hinder your chances. Doing four A levels and an AS won't make you a stronger candidate, if I were you I would just do three A levels and maybe the EPQ too.
