    I'm studying in Abbey college Cambridge now, it's a really good school with good teachers and I love Cambridge. But my dream university is Oxford and I don't feel like I can go to Oxford in this school and not all the students are aiming so high and some of them are really bad. So I want to go to CSFC which with a lot of excellent students with an ambitious dream. But after I visit it, I really don't like the facilities and the environment. What should I do?

    How comes Oxford is your dream university over Cambridge? Is it because since you've been studying in Cambridge already you've gotten bored of the area?

    Abbey College is outstanding and top 10. If you can't get to Oxford from there, you may not be cut out for it. Also, pretty sure Abbey College has a higher Oxbridge send-off than CSFC.
    Also, I go to school 50 metres from you

    Thank you for your reply. But actually, CSFC have higher A level result than Abbey college and more people can go to Oxbridge.
    Are you at Hill's road sixth form college?

    No, of course not. I love Cambridge this city, I think I will never get bored of it. Just I want to study biological or biomedical in uni and Cambridge don't have this course.

    Cardiff is so far away. Not only that but they very much look more into your GCSEs than Cambridge,

    Don't go into CSFC believing that you are probably going to go into Oxford because "more students in Cardiff go into Oxford than those in Abbey College". Your chances of getting into Oxford very much depends on your acdedemic ability and willingness to work hard to achieve the best grades.

    The point is, you can probably get into Oxford from almost any Six form.

    Yeah. Which country are you from?
    Also, if Oxford is all you care about, why didn't you just go to St Paul's or London School for Girls?

    China.
    Well, I don't like girls' school. I tried to apply for Brighton College last October and I was refused. I guess I didn't perform well in the interview. But I got an offer from CSFC.
