    The truth is that, as long as you have C in English, Maths and Science, they don't care. AS and A2 are the most important.

    My dad got about that level for his GCSEs and he went to Oxford to study medicine so yes I think if you did well in your A-Levels and showed true passion toward your chosen course in your interview, you have a good chance!

    Oxford cares more about GCSE's Cambridge want at least A A A A or A* A* A
    Depends on the course and the leniency that year as well...
    (They like it if you don't drop anything for A2's...)

    Hi, everyone so I achieved 5 A*s, 4As and 2Bs for my GCSEs and I was wondering if these GCSEs would be considered acceptable for engineering at Cambridge.

    I have an A* in English Language,Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and an A in English Literature, Physics and Biology.

    Thanks for reading
    Yes. That's a typical profile for a potentially successful applicant.

    What are you planning on taking for your A-levels? Your A-levels will be more important than GCSEs . And you will need to be on target for A*A*A and ideally taking Maths, Further Maths and Physics. Many will also take a 4th A-level (e.g. Chemistry) but that isn't a requirement.
