    Hi! This is my first time writing in TSR!
    Anyway, what do you think is the most important thing for getting into Oxford?
    Obviously good grades, but more specific.

    Thanks

    Varies from subject to subject but the most important factors are the interviews and any pre-admissions tests.

    In terms of personal qualities, a high level of intelligence and the ability to think outside the box are probably the common ones that you tend to find amongst Oxford students :yes:

    It's not actually, and in fact I think they have a free ebook of it if you go on their website and sign up. This one is considerably better, although still not perfect: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Oxbridge-Ent.../dp/0954594479
