    All cs, I think you'd be rejected from Oxford.

    Don't give up though, do your best in Year 12.

    No chance at Oxford but you can still get into a brilliant uni if your A Levels are really good

    Sorry if this sounds harsh but Oxford is likely to reject you
    However, don't give up. Try hard now and get those As (even if you don't get As you'll get in to a good uni as long as you have met the requirements) and you can get into a top uni it may be hard but it is possible!
    few unis look at GCSEs results (apart from maths and English language) so as long as you have passed them your fine. Treat a levels like a fresh start!

    Nope you won't. I know this sounds harsh but you have to forget about Oxford. They're GCSE heavy and so it would be a waste of an application if you apply.
    Sorry

    If I was you I think I'd likely give up on Oxford unless you would be willing to resit nearly all of your GCSEs to get majority A*...

    There are plenty other great universities for Fine Art
