    I'm a grade 11 student and I'm wondering what does Oxford look at for Canadian students applying? On their website, it says you need at least and 85% in all your grade 12 courses, but that seems extremely low considering how even McGill asks for at least a 96% average for certain facilities. I'm considering taking the SATs but I'm not sure if I'll do well since I don't have as much time to study. Any feedback would be helpful!

    The entry requirements are on the website but if in doubt email and ask. Do you need the SATs?

    I don't need the SATs but I remember reading somewhere that it might be a good idea to have a standardized test score. And ask for calling and asking, they couldn't really offer much(understandably) since it impossible to know academic requirements for so many countries.

    I was hoping maybe someone who got an interview could provide me what kind of grades they had, along with any ECs. Or even better, someone who had gotten accepted.
