Oxbridge isn't a university. There is Oxford and Cambridge. Two separate entities.

You can consult league rankings which often have Durham, Imperial and St Andrews in the mix, but it honestly depends on your subject area as to which is next in line.

In all seriousness, some unis are better for some courses and others are better for other courses.
Don't pick a university to go to because it is "rated" better than others.

No one said anything to the contrary.

Wow you didn't get an A* at Drama, what an amateur. Good luck trying to get into Oxbridge. I think the second best uni, London Met might take you in though, if you are lucky.

PE, Media Studies and Health and Social Care, but no Computer Science or Economics? Just not good enough, I'm afraid.

Rankings vary considerably depending on the subject and which league table you consult, although a good bet is that if a university specialises in your subject (e.g. Imperial for sciences or the conservatoires for performing arts) then it will rank very highly.

Honestly, why would you take 25 GCSEs, in your right mind? What did you really think you would get out of doing that?

Any self respecting student or academic at Oxbridge.

We have regular afternoons where we gather in the courtyard and just laugh at Imperial.
