    Hi Oli,

    It depends on how good your school is, Oxford use contextualised data.
    For example, 1A* and 8 A's from a bottom of the table school could be worth the same as 8A*s and 1A from a top school. I think most successful candidates get around 80%+ A*s, I saw a statistic along those lines but I forget where.

    What do you mean by two types of interview?

    Ok thank you. Fortunately/unfortunately I go to a school where the average student gets 7A* grades (79% of gcse grades awarded last summer were A*), and I am hoping for around 6-8 A*s come May so would you say this is 'decent'? And people have said that there are two interviews (I believe you stay the night in Oxford and have two on two consecutive days?) so I was just wondering if there was any difference between the two interviews like whether one discusses personal statement + the famous 'why law', whilst the other tests your analytical skills with cases and applying info to scenarios
