Can i still go to oxford or Cambridge with these results?Watch
Basically no one here can give you a definitive answer!
requirement. I’m pretty sure Oxbridge doesn’t have this. Ten 9’s is very, very high also. If you achieve 3A*’s along with this then your chances are very good.
Ten 9s is ridiculously high, and A*A*A* at A Level is probably going to be above the entry requirements for the course, even at Oxbridge. As long as you're looking to do a science-y course at uni, then I don't think they'd really mind about the 5s in English. But I'm not an expert by any means.
If in August 2018 I receive 10 grade 9's and 2 grade 5's in English literature and language and then in a level I achieve a*'s in all my 3 courses, will I get accepted to an interview in Oxford or Cambridge?
But if you're shooting for 10 9s and then A*A*A*, I don't see why you can't surprise yourself
Not as knowledgeable on the application side of things, however with such high targets (of 10 9's), what's holding you back from getting good grades in English?
I'm sure a level 5 will restrict you (maybe?), and just learn how to answer the question in-depth and what you should include in your answer for Language, and for Literature just read the book, take key parts out and analyse, remember the quotes and how to answer the question.
Anyway, if you try your best I'm sure you can get 12 8/9's, instead of 10 9's and 2 5's, it looks much better. Even a 7 (which wasn't hard to get last year) looks adequate enough.
What are you revising when you revise English? You making use of the Mr Bruff guides, guides on here, CGP books??
And it's normal if your mock in Year 10 was higher, due to the fact that in Year 11 it's much harder, in terms of the content and the marking will be much more difficult, therefore it's reasonable that you got a lower grade in Year 11.
English Language is also the easiest English in my opinion, all you need is to read, understand and answer the questions properly *there are guides on structuring your answer here*, and read the exemplar answers so you can use them to your benefit.
Check out with your teacher about what the mark scheme means and what you need to include in your answer to get the higher Levels.
It is very possible to get a grade 7.
