    Am in yr 11 and will probably end up with these grades:
    Maths - 9
    Biology - 9
    Chemistry - 9
    Physics - 9
    French - 9
    History - 8/9
    PE - 8/9
    Music - 8/9
    English Language - 8
    English Literature -7/8

    I'm planning to do maths, further maths, history and either politics or economics at a level. I would like to go on to ppe or economics or something at Oxbridge. How competitive would these grades be viewed and would a seven in English lit have a significant impact?

    Your A levels are far more important so focus on them.
