    Oxford Students, what are your top tips for year 12s for over the next two years in getting into Oxford? In my case specifically it'd be for PPE, but any advice would be appreciated.

    A few things I'd recommend:

    1. Work hard, get the grades you need

    2. Make sure you choose the right subject (ie one in which you have genuine interest- 3 or 4 years is a long time to study something you don't enjoy)

    3. Do a bit of extra reading when its getting closer to interview time (over summer after year 12 is a good time to read around I found)
