    Okay so I got 93% in French, 95% in German, but if you add my Classics mark it goes down to 87.5%
    I was wondering if that was enough given my good UMS in languages and the fact that I had a clash of four exams, meaning I had to take my Classics exams back to back, and my marks clearly show that the clash affected them, which will be put on my UCAS form. I know its probably still not enough but I'd like a second opinion.
    Thanks!

    Probably, MML is one of Cambridge's least competitive courses

    Thanks for the replies, I really wasnt sure if a B in Classics this year would have been good enough but this was super reassuring, so thanks!

    Yes it will be competitive. And you can also mention the circumstances on Cambridge's SAQ.

    Hiya I'm interested in studying at Oxbridge (French and Spanish) but I don't want to apply if I have no chance.In my AS I got:A in French (99%) A in Spanish (83%) - only 1 of 2 As, half my class got an E or a U and the class had 22 pupils.. I plan to retake one paper to get it up to near 90% so I can get an A* next yearA in Politics (86%)B in History which is currently being remarked as I did one paper and got an A and was too ill to do the second so I got given a calculated mark which took me down to a B I also go 10A* 1A at GCSE and my predicted grades are A*A*A (A*s in languages)Do I have a chance at Oxbridge but in particular Cambridge? Any replies welcome
    Fill out an extenuating circumstances form perhaps and yes, you've got a fair shot.
