Hi all. I am currently in year 11 at a state school. I have already achieved 2 A*s at GCSE in previous years and I am predicted a further 10A*s (including 3 9's and an A* or A^) and an A.
My A level choices are Double Maths, Physics and Economics; the subjects that I am best at and enjoy the most. I will most probably want to study Maths or Economics at university (preferably Oxbridge)!
I have already applied to a (really remarkable) private sixth form. I have been offered an academic scholarship at this sixth form, which covers a certain percentage of the fee. The sixth form is really quite brilliant, as all of the departments seem to be better than that of the state sixth form that I am applying to.
On the other hand, I have applied to a state sixth form college, which is undoubtedly one of the best state sixth form colleges in the country and I will probably receive an offer given the 'entry requirements'.
My question is whether going to a private sixth form would put me at a disadvantage when applying to Oxbridge compared to if I were to go to the state sixth form? Both sixth forms have a relatively large cohort of students that are accepted into Oxbridge every year, and I know people who have got in this year from both sixth forms.
