I am from a state school and am applying to Oxford to do ppp. I was going to apply to Wadham because 70% of the students are from state schools and the college is really laid back, which would suit me brilliantly! However, I just read in an Oxbridge Admissions booklet that the colleges with high numbers of state school students are less likely to want to take on more state school students; people from state schools would be better off applying to a public school dominated college who need to admit more state school students!
I'm so confused! Any help on this matter would be great!
Also, I got full marks on 7 out of 12 of my AS modules. Do you think it would be important for my referee to point this out in my reference or would it be enough just to say that I got high As in all of the modules? Do most people get full marks in the majority of their AS level modules or would this make me stand out?
