    GCSE grades: 4 A*s (1 in maths) and 4As (+C in FSMQ)
    A-Levels: Predicted A*AAC (in maths(A2), french, spanish, physics)
    Course: Maths
    College: Somerville

    I wasn't too happy with the C at FSMQ but I didn't have a teacher, do you think they will take this into account? Now, I'm not too happy about the C at AS level, but I think I will be dropping physics anyway.

    Awesome - I also want to do Law, looking to go to Christchurch, University college or Exeter College - what are your grades and what are you studying?
    Nice I'm looking at Exeter too. I'm going for their open day in September.
    GCSE grades : 7A* 3A
    AS: maths, history, french, german and not dropping anything...hopefully that won't bite me later!
    How about you?? What are you studying?

    Does anyone know what the rooms are like in Univ? Do you have to share a bathroom with other people? I won't be able to go to open day so any information on the living conditions in any of the colleges would be welcome

    The July 1 & 2 Oxford Open Days are fast approaching!

    Brasenose's JCR (Junior Common Room) have released a short film to give prospective visitors an idea of what these events are like.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OywBq6CNDWw

    There is also an associated website consisting of 100% student-generated content:

    The rooms are generally very good sizes - everyone gets a sink and a fridge in their room.

    Most people share bathrooms/showers between around 4 people. However there is a new building being finished by September which will have all ensuite rooms and kitchens on each floor.

    If you have any other specific questions let me know

    The educational assessment,here in Italy,is certainly different from yours in the UK.We have a grading scale going from 0 (lowest score) to 10 (highest score,as A*) in each subject so my current grades are : 10 (A*) Chemistry ; 10 (A*) Biology ; 9 (A) English Literature and 9 (A) Physics.
    Predicted grades are : 10 (A*) Chemistry,10 (A*) Biology,10 (A*) English L. ; 9 (A) Physics
    College: Corpus Christi,Christ Church or Magdalen

    Wow.... Do you have any Chinese heritage, or are you just amazing with languages?

    What is the degree like - is it language and literature, or also culture, history, philosophy, art etc., as per a Classics degree?

    Hi everyone,

    I've written posts on Modern Languages at Oxford (course and interviews), and I was wondering if there were anything else anyone would want to read a post about. I'm finishing my third year at Magdalen and would love to hear what you guys want to know.

    Haha neither! I don't come from a Chinese background (although I do have Taiwanese family) and my Mandarin is pretty basic (like GCSE level which I did this year). But you're not expected to have any knowledge of the language before you apply.

    At Oxford, I've heard it's largely language and you study both Modern Mandarin and Classical Chinese, but it's also quite literature/culture/history based.

    Thanks man. Whenever you are available, I've got a few questions: 1) Were you asked in the interview to solve any Economics math problems? Since I am an international and haven't studied any Economics at school, I will most likely be unable to solve them, if there are any. 2) Can you give a quick description of your interview if you can? It's a big request so if you can't, don't mind it 3) Lastly, which college did you pick? And why? Thanks in advance!!

    I'll be applying for PPL (Psychology and Linguistics) or Experimental Psychology.
    Just found out yesterday that I very likely made the 7,6,6 required for IB admission.
