You have the experience, you just need the skills to communicate them (interviews, writing applications etc)

Extra-curriculars (activities not related to subject) don't add anything to an Oxbridge application.

Yeah defo! And like the guy above says, you just need to focus on your communicative skills for things like interviews and your personal statement to really get across how the things you've done in high school have built your skills like for example leadership, teamwork etc. And also, you have to make sure you work hard to actually get those grades as well which I'm sure you're already working hard to get
