    Hello,

    I am in my second year of BA Economics and Politics and I am intending to apply to the University of Oxford for the Mphil in Economics.

    As I was going through their funding page, I discovered the Clarendon Scholarship and it seems to be very advantageous and very "respected".

    I was just wondering what it would take to be considered and receive the scholarship?

    PS: Up to now I have received a prize for best joint degree student in my deparment and my economics grades are roughly above 95%. However I do very poorly with the extra-curricular activity, I am only enrolled in one society, and I don't think I will be publishing anything during my undergrad'.

    Also, I am intending to take the GRE, and I would like to know how good my results will have to be for the scholarship?

    Any tips and advice will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    You should be able to find the answers to these questions on the Oxford law web pages, but off the top of my head:

    - I don't think you need to do anything other than apply to be considered for the Clarendon, and several other, scholarships (but check this in the application process!)
    - Extra-curricular activity won't be of much significance
    - If you'd published something that would be great but the vast majority of applicants won't have published anything either, and the very few that have might not have published anything particularly good
    - Who knows how good your results will have to be? Do the best you can in your BA and apply for the course.
