Hi

I am trying to decide on a college, and any help would be very much appreciated.
I am applying for English and have narrowed it down to either:

Magdalen
or
Christ Church

If anyone could provide me with any information that might help choose between these two, I would be very grateful.
See here;

http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki..._Pros_and_Cons

Then look at the "good" and "bad" points of both of those colleges individually, and make a decision, remembering that it's all down to personal opinion and of course the colleges are more alike than different!

Same. I had it finished twice though but always found something I wanted differently and changed the whole thing - that damn character limit
Hate the limits! I thought I was doing well because i was quite a lot of characters under the limit, but oh no, I'm 4 lines over once I put it into UCAS

Yes I'm waiting for it to start
Ah, me too, I couldn't resist a quote in my sig :love:.
It's funny how you say that you're 'waiting' as if it's going to be some kind'f new series :rofl: And oh yes, he's worth a sig!

We are watching......

Also, I'm interested to see which of the regular posters get in.....
(Though by the time offers come out I'll probably be frantically revising for collections)
This is terrible, it's like we're a reality TV show or something! :eek:

I'm not doing the A Levels but it only took them less than 2 weeks which is quite nice

Looking for application advice, not sure if this is the right thread :P

I'm applying to Oxford to do physics, do you think that I stand a chance?
GCSE's: 8A* 3A 1B
AS levels: Physics B, Maths A, Further Maths A, Chemistry A, History A
A2 Predictions: A*A*AA (now dropped history)

I'm worried about my AS B, it was 5 UMS off, although Oxford won't care about excuses I suppose. Also I self taught FM so that might gain me some credit, all advice appreciated

The B is clearly far from ideal, but the rest of your application looks strong. You need to get revising for the PAT, as Oxford put a lot of emphasis on pre-interview tests

There are some Oxford people around (for example the Oxford CS department has an account! And one of that department's tutors posts a bit too). I expect this thread grows too fast for anyone to monitor though (after all it would be practically a full time job )

Anyone applying with AABB at AS? I'm not sure whether I should. I want to do Earth Science which isn't that competitive but I don't want to waste a choice. The B's are borderline A's aswell, I will be retaking 1 module from each paper to bring back to an A.

Okay, so not sure where exactly this post should be going but would like a realistic opinion on my chances of getting in
Got 5A*'s and 6.5A's at GCSE
Got AAAB at AS level and i am expected to be predicted A*A*AA
I am aware that they could be better but just dont know whether i should put all my eggs in the oxford PPE basket, i know its an extremely competitive course.
I come from a pretty mediocre state school too so hopefully i can swing that in my favour too haha, anyway, any advice is appreciated guys!
