    Hi, just wondering if anyone could help me out as I literally have a couple of days to decide!

    1) Im applying to do straight economics at other universities would this affect my personal statement if I applied to Oxford? Would I need to put something about management in it?

    2) Which city is better?! I dont have time to go visit them!

    3) Which one would I be more likely to get into?
    How hard is the Thinking Skills Assessment?

    GCSE's : 5A*s, 5As

    AS Levels : 5As
    Maths D1 82%, C1 97%, C2 95%,
    Economics 82% 84%
    Politics 100% 88%
    Business 79% 94% 97%
    General Studies 80% 82%

    Alevel predictions: Maths A*, Politics A*, Economics A

    Would I even stand a chance?!

    Please help, many thanks!

    It'd be a good idea, but not essential. Definitely keep the bulk about economics.

    2) Which city is better?! I dont have time to go visit them!
    Oxford is bigger so has more non-uni life, but both are pretty similar - very pretty with a centre dominated by the colleges. Oxford has a bit more choice in nightlife, but that's not a big issue for most people are social lifes tend to revolve around bars, societies, etc. more than clubs.

    Yes you have a chance. Both are very hard to get into and very oversubscribed. E&M has (or at least always used to have) a higher apps/place, but not by a huge deal and the quality of people accepted for both is similarly high. So you have a chance at both, but not a huge chance. Depends how you do on the various assessments and at interviews.
