    Nobody knows what your chances are so that, unfortunately, isn't a question worth asking.

    If you need more advice from TSR I suggest you search for 'Law Harris Manchester' - a current first year Law student did the same access course as you and is now studying at Oxford. She's given some very good advice in her previous posts.

    I'd also email Sarah Kahlbaum, the admissions secretary at Hughes Hall. It's another mature students college, and they're really lovely there. She's very helpful and they're very well organised. (If you're really attached to Lucy Cavendish, that's great, but I think Hughes is a great college and I'm really looking forward to studying there next year. John Hopkins is a legend, too.) admissions (at) hughes (dot) cam (dot) ac (dot) uk.

    Edit: Hughes Hall is at Cambridge. My application is also evidence that Oxford isn't necessarily easier to get into than Cambridge--that said, my Cambridge interviews were much better than my Oxford interviews.
