    hi my name is abdul, i am college student, my teachers are predicting me to get D*D* however in school because i started school life from year 6 before of certain medical condition, however i left school with student of the year, got very good grades however in GCSE i got C in maths. i want to go to good uni like Warwick or oxford as my teachers are saying you will get very good grades when you leave college, however i am worried that uni might reject me as i only got a C in maths, so can someone please guide me, thanks.

    Taken off the Oxford site;

    There are no formal requirements for performance at GCSE

    On a sidenote though, Math IS the most important subject when it comes to Computer Science/IT, your obviously young so things can change, but you will really need to make A LOT of improvements in this subject if you personally want an A-level result that Oxford or Warwick would consider, but currently at a GCSE C grade level, goodluck!!
