Oxford is my dream school with my dream major being PPE, and I really want to get in because they do not offer PPE courses in the US... but I am not sure that I am qualified.
I am currently a Junior in High school (Year 12 I believe in the UK?) and my credentials are as follows:
1450 (out of 1600) on the new SAT
5 on AP Computer Science Test
5 on AP Chinese Test
4 on AP US Government Test
These are the test scores I am hoping to get this year:
5 on AP Comparative Government and Politics
5 on AP Calculus AB
5 on AP Psychology
5 on AP World History
5 on AP English Language
1500 on SAT retake
750 on English SAT II
750 on World History SAT II
These are the tests I will be taking in Year 13 (and projected test scores)
5 on AP English Literature
5 on AP Calculus C
5 on AP Statistics
5 on AP French
5 on AP Economics
Although the test scores I received in Year 11 were poor, I have confidence that I will be able to do well from now on. This is because I did not study for any of the tests that I took then.
I am just worried that Oxford will not consider me because of the 4 on my AP US Govt test and my poor score on my first sitting of the SAT...
I understand that I still have to worry about the TSA and Interviews next year, but I first have to get my test scores up.
Am I qualified for Oxford? The honest truth would be appreciated.
...and how to stay positive
