I've been looking into applying for Experimental Psychology at Oxford but am quite worried about how my academic record will count against me - is there anybody who could help me on this?
Throughout my Standard Grade and Intermediate 2 (Scottish equivalent of GSCEs) exams, and my first set of Highers (Scottish A Levels), I struggled with mental health issues which severely impacted my results despite A grade predictions. Long story short, I ended up with two Ds on my English and Modern Studies Highers.
This year, I've sat my Psychology and Sociology Highers and am predicted to get A grades in both (I'm a lot more confident about these exams) and will be studying the HNC Social Science in September which is the equivalent of the first year of university, as well as Higher Maths.
Is it pointless to even consider applying with those previous grades, or would my more recent qualifications, reference, personal statement and TSA scores back up that I am now academically capable for the course?
