    Do Oxford and Cambridge look a lot at GCSE results?
    I have A*A*A*A*AAAAABBB does this mean I won't be considered?
    I'm predicted all As for AS (I'm in y12) and thinking of studying English Literature at university.
    I'm not sure whether I should risk Oxbridge due to my pretty bad GCSEs... anyone know how much universities look at GCSEs?

    Why do you think they are bad? You have 9 A or A*...

    But the ELAT is important too for both Cambridge and Oxford. As is the rest of your application.
