    Sometimes I wonder if this would happen to me, and if it does then so be it,there isn't much I can do about it. And if I do make it into oxbridge, how would it feel like being the only black person there?

    White people will say your skin doesn't make a difference. However, your only saying this because your white. You would't know what difference your skin colour makes when it comes to things like education.
    I'm Brown and just done my MPHIL at Cambridge, it's certainly a white dominated community. However, I also know many black students, so this no black students at Cambridge is a myth.

    1. Please learn the difference between "your" and "you're". I get that this is an online forum, but those aren't shorthands, they're just wrong.

    2. You won't be the only black person there, honestly. I hope you're only coming across as dumb because it's the internet, otherwise you won't stand a shot at getting into Oxbridge.
