    I don't understand how people assume they're going to get A*A*A at A level when they just started.

    Anyway, If you get those grades you have a good chance - chances are slim if you're applying for UCAS the first time - unless you do well in the pre-interview tests.

    Get good A levels - then you should be fine anywhere.

    Cambridge look at your GCSEs less than Ox, so just do well in your a levels and u should stand a chance

    If you do well at AS then you'll have a chance.
