    Hey,

    So im applying at Oxford for History and Politics.

    My AS grades were AACC (History, politics, economics, maths respectively) and i know they arent good enough BUT... My predicted grades are A*A*A and only 2 subjects are non linear (A for politica and C for maths) so on my application theyll see: Predicted A*A*A, Qualifications:A,C. My personal statement looks great I think (had much help) and my GCSE's are good enough.

    What do you think? Good enough?

    It's a competitive course - a lot will ride on how you do on the Oxford-specific pre-admissions tests. Were there any extenuating circumstances?

    It'll be very hard. You have to include all of your AS results, however they're not looking at AS results that much. I'd work very hard for your HAT as if you get a good score in that you'll most likely get an interview! Good luck!
