I didn't really think of Oxford as somewhere of applying to, I never felt that I was really smart enough for it. At GCSE I got 7 A*s and 5 As, which boosted my confidence a lot, and then once at college a few of my teachers started talking to me about how I should definitely strive to go to Oxbridge.
So, I applied for the UNIQ Summer School at Oxford, which some people told me is almost as hard to get into as the uni haha. I was ecstatic to find out that I'd been accepted for the geography summer school! After going I completely fell in love with the uni and community in Oxford.
Then came AS results day. I kind of knew I'd underperformed in maths, I really didn't feel confident at all in the exams. I got an A in geography (with full UMS in the main paper, and 80ish percent in the skills paper), an A in English lit, and a B in maths. I also do economics, but that's a two year course (my teachers predicting me an A*). I'm dropping English because I'm also applying to LSE for a joint honours in Economics and Geography, which you need maths for. I've decided to retake C1 and C2, and should hopefully end up with an A in maths overall. Will this be a massive hinderence to my application for Geography at Oxford?
Thanks in advance
Applying for Oxford with AAB?
