They will mainly judge on A Level grades. Realistically you will have to get AAA grades to get in. You could possibly get by with AAB but it depends.
If they find applicants (which they will) with similar grades, they will look in to AS grades. It won’t be likely they look in to GCSE but it is possible. As long as you have good grades relevant to the course you should be fine.

If you are looking to apply to either of these Universities, you need to have additional activities, courses and/or work to go along. For example an extra AS grade, enrichment courses (Duke of Edinburgh), sports or fitness (exercising in the gym) and any work experience relevant to your course will be valued at any university. This will help them decide between you and another applicant, if you have more going, than they are more likely to chose you.

Your odds are 1 billion to 1.

“I speak a little French and Latin, and hopefully by the time I submit my application; fluent Arabic.” The most glaring omission from your list of GCSE subjects is a modern foreign language. The English Baccalaureate, which is set to be the minimum set of subject qualifications for university entrance, includes a foreign language. Just saying you can speak a little French isn’t going to cut the mustard. Test results will. As for your AS/A2 choices, have you checked that Law is an acceptable subject to study Law at Oxbridge? There’s some suspicion among the more academic universities about A-level Law – certain Law departments prefer more traditional A-levels such as English or a foreign language. Be wary about your GCSE Media Studies too. It’s often regarded as a “soft option” for lower achievers.
