Acorn Data

You can check your Acorn group by going to http://acorn.caci.co.uk and then click 'Try Acorn', then you've gotta make an account (doesn't need too much information) and then you can search your postcode and it gives you the Acorn Group of your area. The less affluent the area of residence, the higher the Acorn score; preference is given to applicants who come from areas (and schools) with little or no history of successful application to Oxford
