    I was in the same position as you last year but with Cambridge. I turned down all my offers from Imperial, UCL etc and got a job through the year in industry thing - http://www.yini.org.uk/. A year later I have an offer from Cambridge, a job at a company which is effectively sponsoring me through university and guaranteed summer work for 3 years. Conclusion: Do it, but be prepared to not get in again.

    I was making that claim alongside supporting the suggestion of going to Imperial and reapplying to Oxford from there. Nothing can be lost. I wasn't being completely useless and heartless, haha.
    ma bad

    Sorry in advance to go off topic. Just another fool hypnotized in Oxford's allure. Also would like to do Biological sciences there, Or somewhere else, i have a genuine love of biology and science in general, but it goes without saying Oxford would be first choice. Can anybody give me any advice, of things i might be able to do to make a stronger application? would be much appreciated.

    It's a UCAS application independent of RH. Not sure where your reference would come from... perhaps you could use your reference from sixth-form?
    Have you put in your PS or done anything to alert the other Unis that you are still at RH?
    And where did you get your reference from?

    Is this possible?
    I am also considering reapplying to Oxford after I completely fluffed my interview as I feel I am capable of much more than the interviewers got to see.
    If I did for example take up an offer at York, would I be able to reapply on UCAS without telling York? or would I have to do it through the university that I am studying at?
    The only thing that is required for UCAS application is Reference. That can be arranged from any of your tutor in A Level. The University you will be studying at is not at all involved thus no need to inform them.
