    Don't apply to Oxford. Unless you have significant extenuating circumstances, you won't stand a chance.

    Without wishing to be harsh, everyone has a good reference and similarly stellar PS filled with the usual bilge about volunteering overseas and Grade 8 bassoon.

    Ultimately, you're going to be assessed on your examination results, and the GCSE aren't brilliant - they're not awful, either. What were the Cs in? Unless there were serious, provable extenuating circumstances, then I do think that a competitive application to either Imperial or Oxford is unlikely.

    Why is this a problem? You gat all C's and above. I see nothing to worry about. Try Sixth Form or another college/uni. It'll work out, OK. Trust me. I had a B, 4 C's, 2 D's, an E and a U. Doing what I love now.
