Im in year 11 right now, and am predicted 10 9s in maths, further maths, english lang, english lit, chemistry, physics, biology, computer science, geography and persian. But a 4 in german.
Would I be able to apply to top unis such as oxford and cambridge for Mathematics with these gcses? Assuming i get predicted 4 A* in a level

You don’t get admitted based on your GCSE predictions. Even if you did, you’d be fine with those grades.

oh for cambridge they do look at gcses as well but ur a levels are obviously more important - to the thread creator : i think you should be fine with the one 4

Ok, so the one 4 shouldn’t be a problem since it isn’t related to the course. Even if this is true, is there any way to not declare the grade in UCAS so that your record looks cleaner, or is that mandatory

one 4 is HIGHLY HIGHLY EXTREMELY unlikely to make any difference whatsoever. its literally still a pass and it doesnt bring your average grade down at all. like at all. if you are predicted 10 9's and genuinely achieve them, youve most likely surpassed their usual candidate anyway, a lot of people applying might have 7 or 8 a* grades in total. not 10. don't over think it

You must declare every grade you have ever achieved in a public exam on your UCAS application, if you’re found to have omitted any results your application may be cancelled and your offer rescinded.

all unis look at your gcses. but its not necessarily the deciding factor. additionally multiple people have been admitted into cambridge with worse gcses. its typically oxford who seem to be more focused on higher gcses, with cambridge expecting a strong set but focusing more so on your a level predictions. bare in mind you need higher predictions for the majority of cambridge course compared to AAA for oxford.

You have an 8.5 average, obviously, besides, A Levels are more important. GCSE's are only for Post 16.

Yes Cambridge/every Uni for undergrad courses typically look at achieved grades, however it is unlikely you’re able to submit a successful UCAS application with 11 GCSE predictions.

Assuming OP goes on to achieve these grades, they will be fine, the 4 in German will be irrelevant for what they state they’re interested in.
