    Hi, I have applied for the Oxford Pathways Year 12 days in March for biochemistry, chemistry and biomed. I was wondering if anyone else had applied for these study days, and if so what for. Has anyone heard back from them yet? I think the deadline is Feb 17th.
    I don't think I'm likely to get on because Cambridge recently rejected me for something similar, probably because I live in quite a well off area.

    Applied for maths! Haven't heard anything yet, though I'm not too hopeful as my GCSEs are average and my postcode's pretty good. Good luck!

    Same. Sucks being so far away. Hoping they'll be able to pay for my train ticket. It's a good 4-7 hours though depending on the route.

    I'm only an hour away on the train so should be going up on my own in the morning.

    Wow :eek: It's like 2 hours for me and I thought that was a lot. Are you getting accommodation because it sounds like you need it lol.

    I hope so. They said they'll tell everyone soon. They've given priority to those who live furthest away and I'm pretty sure I qualify for that.

    I didn't get in to computer science/maths but got put on a waiting list for both subjects I do live 20 mins away though, could this be the reason why? Got 8A*/4A GCSE

    They don't really give priority to those who live further away when it comes to choosing who gets to attend. It's more about your background, your school and how well-off your area is. Distance from Oxford only matters when they're deciding whether or not to provide overnight accommodation.

    I hope you get in from the wait list. Definitely not due to your distance though. You got better GCSE grades than I did so I wouldn't think it it's that. They might have just been very competitive subjects this year.

    Yess I did! Hopefully will still get on though I think unlikely? It's so frustrating living somewhere deemed too privileged for outreach programs yet not going to a posh enough school to get the links they have!

    Nope, thought that one was too much based on area to even bother applying! Good luck if you did
