Are 3A*s, 1A, 1B in A levels good enough for Oxbridge?

I received my results a few days ago and was absolutely amazed at how I got a B.

I had 2A*s, 7As, 1B in my IGCSEs and 3A*s, 1A, 1B in my A levels. Is there any possibility of me securing a place at either Cambridge or Oxford for Law? Becoming a barrister has always been one of my dreams and I would love to have it come true.

Also, is there a possibility of securing some sort of scholarship or financial aid for either Cambridge or Oxford? I'm an international student so the costs are astronomical when converted into my local currency.

I would sincerely appreciate some advice regarding my situation.

Good day!

Yes for Cambridge, just based on your gcses (I need more information for it but I assume you are a yr 11 so no a level predictions). You would probably have a less chance in Oxford, due to the competition and strictness in gcses. Check their scholarships on their website

You would need to check the uni websites about bursaries etc and you can also find breakdowns of what previous offer holders achieved at A level and GCSE. @OxfordMum have you got a chapter on this?
