    You have a good chance, but just make sure your submitted written work is up to scratch!
    Are you addressing this to me or to Gooner? I don't have to submit for physics, I'll have to take the Oxford physics and maths exams at the end of October instead. God, the pressure!!!!

    Edit: You were talking to Gooner. Sorry I butted into your convo. :blush:

    Oh definitely. If they're not certificated, and they usually aren't, they won't see the grades anyway, only predictions. Remember all Oxford offers are on a three grade basis (almost always AAA) whilst Cambridge may occassionally specify the 4th A but only if you have 4 subjects, and it isn't a disadvantage to only have 3.
    I checked with my Head of Sixth form and my school have all the AS grades certificated, so I'll have to put them on my UCAS form. That's why I was a bit anxious about the B for Biology. Apparently I'm going to be predicted an A for Biology though so hopefully that will make up for the B (the result of a minor hiccup on the physiology paper!! )
    Thanks for the advice.

    Yeah that's what I thought until they rejected me after interview

    No seriously, it's a great College.

    History and Politics. If I'm honest, one of the politics admissions tutors was a bit of an arse, but the others were very nice indeed.

    That's quite alright. I'm considering applying for French too but am also considering Arabic. Not sure yet! I'm already pretty fluent in French as I'm Swiss, but I love the language so much that I want to learn more and more!!

    hi

    i'm planning to apply for oxford and i've got AAABB (in AS) but one of the B is in further maths which isnt an AS or A2 until Maths A2 is completed and since i got 1 mark away from an A my teacher is predicting an A so i was wondering if the marks will show up next to my predicted grade and whether or not it is likely i would get 2 marks back on my other B in eng lit on a remark to make it an A- or am i putting more stock in AS results than i should, because im getting the impression from this website that predicted grades are more important?

    thanks alot
