    Do I have a chance of getting in to Ox/Cambridge with my GCSE results? They're far from outstanding so I'm just seeing whether it is worth even applying. Thanks guys:

    GCSEs are a drop in the ocean compared to your AS & A2 results, don't worry yourself too much.

    Apart from Medicine, yes. Your GCSEs are not of huge importance for other subjects.

    Yeah oxford no chance (im sure they do that points system or is that just for medicine?), if you do very well at AS, then make an awesome PS showing your intrest then you have a chance at cambridge. Its worth a try

    Nope, going into A2 but seeing the majority of Oxford students have GCSE results with at least 5 A* with 5 As minimum has made me feel like I'd probably be wasting my time. I just want to know what I have to do to get in! LOL

    Correlation is not necessarily causation. Many people with top A Level and entry exam results will also have top GCSE results. If you can do well at A Level and any entry exams then that's fine.

    hey, don't stress. you should be asking whether or not oxbridge is good enough for you! these results are still exceptional, and if you want to apply for oxbridge - who is stopping you? you won't know unless you try.
