    I believe Oxford is slightly better for Politics, and Cambridge is too close to home. So Oxford I suppose.

    if you HAD to apply to either Cambridge or Oxford, which would it be and why?
    I think Cambridge. I don't know whether it's just an imago I have about the place, but I have been to both cities and like both, but I just feel as though Cambridge is a nicer place to be. It's also nearer to where I live, which isn't an issue, but I also have some cousins nearby :p: Also think some other cousins graduated from Cambridge, so keep it in the family

    Cambridge if I had to choose. Though course wise, there is far too much literature and not enough cultural modules to interest me really :erm:

    cambridge is by far better than oxford. However i'd still apply to oxford, 2 reasons, they want AAA whereas cambridge want A*AA. and mainly because oxford do the optimal course for me

    Cambridge - Cambridge is actually better than Oxford historically. It also has SLIGHTLY more prestige. Some people may think Oxford is better just because of the recent rankings lol

    Yeah, but both are amazing.

    I used to live in Cambridge, so on the one hand I'd love to have the opportunity to spend time there again, but Oxford is also very beautiful and it might be nice to be somewhere new.
    If forced to choose I would have to go for Oxford.
