I have just achieved my GCSE grades and was considering making an application for Oxford University. I would like to study Classics but really do not know if I am good enough...
I got 4A* in History, Classical Civilisation, English Literature and Language.
3A's in Geography, Biology, and Religious Studies.
2B's in Maths and Chemsitry.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.
You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here.

On the Oxford website it says 5A* is typically minimum however if you do well in the admissions test it can compensate for lower GCSEs- and don't get A Levels and the interview play the biggest parts too. If you do well in your A-Levels, (A*AA is typical for Oxford) you should have a good chance. You could also consider Cambridge as they are a LOT less GCSE-heavy during the applications process. Good luck, and don't worry too much until the time comes when you need to apply
