    I'm really interested in taking English with Education at Cambridge (big IF I do get in- which I hopefully do). I went to an Oxbridge conference a few days ago and had a slightly rushed conversation with a student taking the same subject. So is anyone taking the subject, and if so do you have any advice for a Year 12 student interested in taking it?
    Thank you! :-)

    General advice for Oxbridge is to read around your subjects, so for English look at different poets and novels to your specification etc. Additionally you need to get good UMS to stand a chance of getting an offer realistically.

    Hey there,

    I studied Education with English and Drama and I would definitely advocate an application. More than any other course at Cambridge, personality and enthusiasm can outweigh a level of grade discrepancy.

    Apply, go to interview with a solid knowledge of whats been going on in the TES and you will do well!

    Completely agree but I think you quoted the wrong person...
