    Ok, (don't know if this is useful but...)well I went to an Oxbridge applications lecture a couple of months ago and a guy stuck his hand up and asked if he had a chance of getting in with a couple of A's, mostly B's and a few C's at GCSE, and the lecturer basically said it was worth a shot. Aslong as you work hard in your AS and A2 subjects, and write something in your (amazing) personal statement along the lines of how your attitude to learning has changed blah blah blah, then it shouldn't harm your chances.... too much.

    Afterall GCSE's are only one aspect of your application...

    If I was you I wouldn't jump to future dreams of getting A's at a levels. A levels are much harder than you think so instead you shouldn't just predict yourself A's straight away!
