i have the following data:

A      B      C
Adata1      dataB1      100
Adata1      dataB2      200
Adata1      dataB3      300
Adata2      dataB4      50
Adata2      dataB5      340
Adata2      dataB6      400

What would be the query in order to get the first record for every group where C >= 300

A      B      C
Adata1      dataB3      300
Adata2      dataB5      340

this should do:
with data as ( 
  select t.*, row_number() over (partition by A order by C asc ) r
   from yourtable t
   where t.C >= 300
  )
select a,b,c
 from data
where r = 1

no, as you cannot use the analytical functions (like row_number) directly in the WHERE clause.
note that oracle is quite clever about these kind of constructs...
