    What are my chances of getting in for a DPhil Organic Chemistry at Oxford?

    Studying for an MSci at Imperial College London


    1st year average: 80%
    2nd year average : 80 %
    3rd year average : 73.2%


    1) After second year I got a Nuffield/RSC bursary to do undergraduate research for 8 weeks at Imperial College London on copper catalysis.

    2) Same summer I did 4 weeks at a nuclear research institute working on ICP-MS.

    3) This summer I worked at AstraZeneca for 10 weeks doing analytical and formulation work

    4) I was also part of the GSK residential chemistry training experience.

    Other stuff

    I'm departmental rep at imperial.

    I'm a committee member for the Royal COllege of Science Union.

    I also won several prizes but this was before starting at imperial.

    No one can give you an idea of 'chances'. You'll have to apply and see. If you meet the entry requirements and have a good amount of research experience (which you do) you should be competitive.
Do you like carrot cake?
