    Of course they are fine! Universities really don't care too much about GCSEs. Most ask for a B (or even a C) in maths and English language. Oxbridge applicants tend to have more A*s (though not always) - Oxford like A*s at GCSE while Cambridge care more about your AS UMS averages. You'll be fine applying to top universities. Focus on your A Levels - they are MUCH more important than GCSEs.
