Not sure if I was meant to put this in GCSE, but I am asking A Level students. In my school, I did English Literature, English Language, Maths, Combined Science, History, Spanish, Business, and ICT. I believe that is 9 as Combined Science is worth 2 and I have two grades for it.

However, whenever I read offer threads and what not, people are always mentioning 10-13 GCSEs they have done, is that the usual as I mostly did the new GCSEs which are meant to be harder.

I want to apply for Oxford Law, but I fear I may be disadvantaged with 9 GCSEs, achieving 9, 8, 8, 8, 8, A*, 7, A, 6 (Maths) . I am taking three A Levels, Government and Politics, History, and English Literature with predicted grades of A* A A

I did 9 GCSEs: English Lit, English Language, Maths, Combined Science (x2), Computer Science, Religious Studies, French and Music.

You got good grades at GCSE and great predictions for A level so I think they'd look more at how well you did rather than how many you did. You are predicted to get the entry requirements of AAA so I don't see why not. Obviously Oxford is a popular uni choice and so is Law but what's the worst that could happen?

I did 10 GCSEs - English lit, English language, maths, textiles, drama, geography, French, RE, single science, additional science

I think it is very possible that you might get in to Oxford, you have great GCSEs grades and A-level predicted grades, I wouldn't worry, 9 GCSEs is fine with your grades

my_man_123 i did 10 but the reason you did 9 must be because you did double science but i believe that doing 9 is not a disadvantage as your grades look good and if you achieve really good grades in A-Levels and do decent amount of out of college activities you should be able to get away with 9 GCSE after all it not about the number of GCSE's is about how well you have done in them and most of the time A-levels are more important as grades than GCSE's so don't worry you'll do great !

For some reason in my school, people who did double did 4 chosen GCSEs and those with triple did only three, so everyone balanced out with 9, although I guess further maths means 10 for some. Doing triple did not matter much for me, but I kind of missed out since I got a 9-8 in double science lol.
