    Okay this probably seems like such a stupid question, but i have huge aspirations of possibly in the future studying at either oxford or Cambridge which probably sounds pathetic. But say i do get the grades and other things needed, would i actually have a chance. I find it unlikely because 1-i live in Scotland, 2- i come from a very low income household and 3- i go to possibly one of the worst high schools, yet it actually, despite how bad it is, is meant to be the best one in my catchment area. Does anyone think i would actually have chance?

    None of the things you have mentioned would preclude you from standing a reasonable chance at getting an interview/offer, should all other things be fine :nah: Don't let stereotypes put you off! Reach for the stars! (Climb every mountain higher!)
