    33?! That seems fairly generous...although I suppose I don't know how many applicants those 33 were picked from...

    But yes, ditto to your sentiments, good luck to everyone!
    288! Some of them would've got offers for straight History though. 11% is still eye-watering!

    How did Ed Miliband get in to do PPE at Corpus with only AABB in his A levels?
    There was no A* or anything so AABB was pretty much A*A*AA, which I'd think is probably good enough to get in

    Lol No, the A is 80%(Uniform)so A=A*? Not really. It is just AABB those A's could be A*s but the B's are not A's.

    My dad got in for History at St John's and apparently you needed AAA to get in. Maybe they were equivalent to higher grades today.

    idk I'm not English so I'm not entirely familiar with A levels. Might just have been it was harder to get higher percentages in those days so 80% might have actually been pretty good

    College conditional variations? Not too sure if a college would really change it from AAA to AAB though

    I've found hardly any Trinity people! I thought it was a nice place on the open day definitely.

    I've noticed that Trinity Oxford has like no one applying there, whereas Trinity Cambridge has 7 billion people applying there, wonder why there's such a difference between the two.

    It varies by course. You can see the 2014 statistic on Oxfords website for whichever course you applied for.

    The figures for some of the Joint Honours courses can make one's eyes water! History and Economics: 16 got in; History and English: 9; History and Politics (which I applied for) 33! Good luck to all Joint Honours people!
    I'm not doing history related but I am doing joint honours- I applied for philosophy and linguistics and last year 3 people got in to do it!😂

    Yeah Trinity Cambridge is crazily oversubscribed! My friend got pooled from them post-interview last year. I haven't found any other Trinity Oxford HPOL applicants so hopefully my chances of getting an interview may be a little better, but probably not due to reallocation.
    Trinity Cambridge is much more well known I think. I hadn't heard of Trinity College Oxford until recently.
