    A2 Predictions: A*A*A* + A in AS Further Maths
    GCSE: 10A*
    AS: AAA (economics is linear)
    Maths: 95, Geography: 91, French: 99

    For courses that require the TSA I'm not very strong, I average about 61-2 on the TSA score

    Any thoughts?

    Don't take this the wrong way but if I had to make a list of "ways of getting your Oxbridge application rejected", this attitude is probably the first thing that would be on that list. You apply to Oxbridge for a subject because you're passionate about that subject, not because you want the postnomial Oxon.

    Your TSA score would be good enough to get an interview for Geography. Look at the Keble feedback:

    It would be a good idea to look up the course details on the faculty websites. There is nothing wrong with liking/excelling at a lot of subjects but you should probably do the course research first.
