    I was just wondering, as many people have said that RS is seen as a softer, less academic subject and is often looked down by top universities such as Oxbridge. Has anyone experienced anything like this or been accepted to Oxbridge with RS?

    This is GCSE, right, not A level?

    No GCSEs are soft or hard. They’re all deemed pretty much equal, bar obviously Englang and Maths. Take RS! When people say Oxbridge don’t like it, they’re sometimes referring to Philosophy/Ethics/Religion A level, even then, it’s a bit of a myth. It all depends on what you want to study. There is no harm WHATSOEVER in taking the GCSE, in fact, it’ll make you a more moral and thoughtful human being that proves they have compassion and well-built essay writing skills you will succeed in any event.

    My daughter was accepted for Biological Sciences at Oxford with a GCSE in RS, and Biology, Chemistry and RS/Philosophy at A Level.
