What is the motivation behind your drive for applying to Oxbridge? watch

    • Thread Starter

    ...and how are you going to get one step closer to your goal?

    Examples include: studying 95 hours a week, etc etc

    Because I like the course, mainly. Being 'Oxbridge' probably brought the course + Cambridge to my attention, I guess, but the structure of the course (Natural sciences) is so much better and organised at Cambridge than elsewhere. Also, I guess the reputation/ prestige/ whatever probably affected my decision a bit...
    I'm certainly not studying 95 hour weeks!!! Although I do do some kind of college work every day. Just not that much! Hopefully I'll meet my offer grades this summer, maybe I ought to start a bit of revision...
