    I am about to enter year nine and start my GCSEs, what can I do now to improve my chances of getting into Oxbridge later on (other than getting 9s, obviously). Which science books could I read now and understand that would further my knowledge of science, specifically physics?

    At the moment just focus on getting the grades required. When you've decided what A levels to do and what you want to study at uni have a look at courses, work out what will be taught and read up on those topics. Keep an eye on the news as well.

    IMO you should enjoy the GCSE years, you don't really need to stress about oxbridge rn but if you want to start reading around now theres no harm in that. Given you get good gcses youll be on track! But currently since youre only in year 9 id recommend you read around upcoming material in GCSEs or just following a science magazine or reading around online etc.

    Get good grades. Do lots of extra maths if you want to do physics, it'll mean you're more prepared for A Level Maths and Further Maths.
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
