    camb > imperial > oxf

    if you would like to do a natural science course then yeah go for camb. if you love physics and hate chem come to icl

    btw, imperial is amazing since it is super international and people actually give a **** about your personality here. so they don't judge only your maths on the interviews, they also judge your social aspects, which is great bc how will you do research without being able to talk to people

    Not really. I didn't even bother applying for Oxbridge because imperials aero course was clearly superior in my opinion. It's not about the uni, but the course.

    Not entirely true, no one is unsuccessful at this stage. It's just their opinion...

    You know, I really have no clue!! Both are really good and I think anyone who gets into either has done well

    That's the kind of logic that can prevent you from getting into either

    Still waiting for an interview for Computing, hoping I get one soon
    I would wear smart casual and prepare by looking over your personal statement or explaining to someone who doesn't know anything about maths a difficult maths question so they somewhat understand it

    Just joining in!

    Course: Civil engineering MEng
    GCSEs: 11A* 1A
    AS (achieved): AA (Maths, French)
    A2 (predicted): A*AAA (French, Maths, Physics, English Lit)

    For my A2 predicted grades (for maths and physics), my teachers and I decided on not setting it to an A* as we agreed that it would be more realistic than setting the goal too high. Was this a good idea? I'm a little worried that this has hindered my chances of getting in.

    They don't judge your social aspects in the interview, I am afraid to say. They judge your maths, physics and your willingness (further reading and stuff). I was as awkward as a scared mongoose in my interview and it didn't seem to have any negative impact at all.

    (having applied last year).

    I already have high enough grades to guarantee an offer from Sidney Sussex (as they place more emphasis on grades than any of the other colleges), yet I didn't bother applying and decided to stick with Imperial.
    While Imperial is a damn lot uglier than Cambridge, and I mean A LOT uglier, it has a professional feel that you don't feel anywhere else. Also, there aren't any decent classical music venues in Cambridge.

    Regardless, I think it's a common misconception that Oxbridge overpower any other university in the UK. I mean, they aesthetically do, but other than that, for physics, Imperial's physics > NatSci at Cambridge (but Cambridge's Maths with Physics > Imperial's physics, but you have to take the STEP exam).
