I'm not sure what the requirements are for Oxford University but Uni's don't tend to look at GCSE results. A Levels are the ones. 7 is good. Don't put yourself down! I believe in you

I would say if you got a spread of GCSEs so some 8s & 9s majority 7s and a couple 6s its not a no, but it will make it more difficult.
but your A-level predictions are 3A*s and if you perform very strongly on the entrance exam you may still get an interview, no doubt other areas of your application will have to be strong.

The only way to find out is too apply. Most people who average a B+/A- ie 7, dont get in, that said some still do. You get 5 applications, if you are really keen then apply give it a "roll of the dice" [1] but if it doesn't pan out you have 4 other applications, with 3A* predictions you will get offers from top unis.
