    As far as I am aware, for Oxford at least, it's not so much the number of grades that you have, but the proportion of A*s (and A's, I suppose) that you have, so you wouldn't really be at a disadvantage to someone with 12 if you had the same proportion as them.

    Cambridge, on the other hand place slightly more importance on Year 12 results.
