    I'm coming to the end of year 12 and have started to write my personal statement. I'm studying Art, Sociology and English literature, and EPQ. I've been predicted and A in Soc and Lit and an A* in art, and I'm looking to study either a combined degree of art and film at uni, or fine art. I've looked at Reading, Oxford Brookes, Lancaster (all of these offer the combination) as well as Nottingham Trent. I am going to look at Canterbury Christchurch (for double honours), Edinburgh for Fine art, and.. as I decided yesterday... Oxford University, for fine art.
    I know I can do well at A Level art, and I got 100% at GCSE but I'm really struggling to maintain a B at the moment and I worry my predicted grades won't get me place at Oxford. But, I was thinking about it and I thought I might as well try, If you don't try you never know, right? I'm relatively academic but I don't know if I'm achieving at the level I should be for an Oxford candidate. Is this a good idea, or would putting Oxford down as one of my top choices be sort of wasting that spot on my list?
    You could also consider an Art Foundation first - we suggest talking to your art teacher about options who is best placed to offer advice.
