    It's not over. I'd suggest that you avoid GCSE-heavy or extremely competitive universities like Oxbridge, UCL, LSE, King's e.t.c. You could try Aston University or Plymouth.

    Best of luck!

    There are never any absolutes but it will be slightly harder to get in good universities with not so good GCSEs. Of course A Levels matter much more than GCSEs

    Presumably, not Oxford since they're especially demanding with your GCSE grades. However, if you excel in your A Levels, the you definitely stand a chance of getting in pretty decent universities. Have a look a this.

    You could try but you would need amazing AS and a2 grades to make up for your gcse grades! You would need A's at AS, and A*'s at A2. Also for top universities you will need a very strong personal statement, work experience and you will need to smash your interview! Best of luck!x
