    For my gcse results I achieved 2A*’s 7A’s and 1C, however the c was in maths. I am not sure if am even interested in applying to oxbridge but should I even bother due to my grade in maths? Also would this be a problem for other universities too? I’m currently studying geography, history and English literature and I am choosing our of geography and history as a degree. Thanks!

    Oxford

    Plus you need to check chosen entrance requirement for college and course.

    Cambridge is much easier

    It is going to vary from uni to uni ive seen them ask for 5s and 6s. I could look it up for you but best if you do it.

    IMO not worth applying for Oxbridge with that for Geography (maybe for history as then the maths matters less). If going Geography I'd avoid Oxbridge and LSE, maybe put Durham as an ambitious choice. Realistically as geography at most unis has a stats element, I'd say you should be looking at lower RG unis not Oxbridge.
