    1. I highly doubt this should be a consideration. One's a degree from Oxford, and the other's a degree from Cambridge. You'll be fine either way.

    2. PPE Oxford interviews just under half of all applicants. 16% are successful in the end.

    HSPS Cambridge has had increasing numbers of applications since first introduced, it may top 1000 next year if it keeps going at this rate. Around 230 applicants are given offers. The average is around 26% for offers given.

    3. I think it'll be difficult to find exact information but most successful applicants having 70% A*s at GCSE is a sure bet. For Cambridge another consideration is having very high (90+) UMS across your 3 most relevant AS subjects.
