    In my GCSE's I got an A, B and a C (which has been sent off because I was a third of a mark off) but I have 6 more GCSE's to sit. What I wanted to know is, if I get all A*'s and 1 or 2 A's. Am I eligible for a place at Oxbridge (assuming I get the good enough grades at AS/A2).

    The majority of oxbridge applicants have mostly A*s. There are always exceptions however and GCSEs aren't the be all end all of applications.

    Cambridge don't really consider your GCSEs that much. For Oxford, a set of A*s and As with a few outliers should be fine- if you get A*s in the rest then that should make up for the C, as long as your A Level predictions are good
