Oxford tend to put more weight on GCSEs than Camb, but it highly depends on the course, which course are you thinking of specifically?

I assume that you've passsed both maths and english, are you doing A-levels, if so make sure you meet any entry requirements.

For Oxford the PAT is as important as your GCSEs for Engineering.

For Cambridge GCSEs are looked at only in the context of you school's average performace (good GCSEs at a poor school are seen as a good thing, good GCSEs at an excellent school wouldn't be as "helpful"). A-levels, etc are more important than your GCSEs.

What *are* your GCSEs?

GCSE are important as it gives you the choices you want to study for a level or btec . Plus high universities look at your gcse results along with your a level or btec
