firstly, Cambridge is not the only (or sometimes the best) option
secondly, congratulations on those results
thirdly, focus more on enjoying life while you're young
lastly, what the hell on earth more do you think results wise you could have done? you pretty much 100%ed everything (UMS wise)

You've passed the first easy step of getting into UNI, now youre going to have to get good grades at A-level.
I also agree with the above, cambridge is not always the best option. my friend got 12 A* and 1 A at GCSE ( A at R.E half course, which no one cared about ), and 5 A's at A-level + the 2 he did outside of school, i think it was greek and something else. and was turned down for computer science at cambridge, which i think is a joke, i mean hes one of the smartest people i know, and hes got some of the best results ive seen. He set on going oxbridge even though he got into some of the top 10 unis in england, so hes now taking a gap year, to get his 4 A2 results, so he can apply to oxford.. just to spite cambridge.
To answer your question, those are great results, but some peopel do nowhere near as good at A-level, so make sure you put a lot of effort into it. And even if you do, like the above, you might not even get in, so maybe look into some other great uni, oxbridge isnt the best for every subject out there.
