    Hi,
    I'm currently in year 12 and thinking about university next year. I am planning on doing Mathematics with computer science, and would like to do so at Oxford or imperial but I'm not really sure which is the best option for me. I know I have got ages to decide but I would like to get a clearer image in my head. My teachers are confident I'll get the grades for either course - but they're pushing me for Oxford, but personally I feel like if enjoy imperial more.
    Does anybody know anything about The maths or computer science or the joint course at either uni?
    All feedback appreciated,
    Thanks!

    You have up to five choices on your UCAS form - you can apply to both Oxford and Imperial (and 3 others), and then if you are in the fortunate position of getting offers from both THEN you need to decide.

    You should also have visited both (at least once) in the meantime and done further research on the courses, etc and that should help inform your final decision.

    Ditto everything above.

    Would I have to pretty much get 4 As at the end of this year to have a sufficient chance of getting an offer from either?

    Not necessarily, but it may help. AABB may be OK. Oxford uses its admissions tests (MAT for Maths) as a key selector before selecting for Interview.

    Have you also considered Cambridge? Note you can't apply to both Cambridge and Oxford.

    Are you doing M+FM?

    Yes - I'm currently studying Maths, Futher Maths, Chemsitry and Computer science. I have looked at Cambridge but don't really like the look of it, having been to look around and speaking to some people.

    What do you think would be very different at Oxford?
