    I'm not sure whether to apply to Oxford or Cambridge as I loved both of them equally when looking around. I want to apply for Law which is AAA at Oxford and A*AA at Cambridge, I'm predicted AAA. My LNAT scores have been 25 and above but my GCSE's weren't so good which apparently bad for Oxford as they put some weight on it. I also perform quite well at interview, which do you think is better to apply to?

    Make your choice based on the courses, not the admissions process. You will be there for 3 years, pick the course that interests you the most.

    Apply at Oxford. You are not going to receive an interview at Cambz with predicted grades bellow the entry requirement. Or apply at Cambz after A levels

    Go Oxford, you're not gonna get an interview if you're not predicted the entry requirement.

    Ask here to check Cambridge's view of your application and in particular the role of predictions
