    I'm a first year who is going to reapply to Oxford through UCAS this year. Does it matter to which college I apply, or are some more lenient on those who've started degree's elsewhere?

    I doubt that colleges will take different stances on this. As a rule, they design the system so that there is no way you're more or less likely to get in based on your college choice.

    Oh right! Thank you

    I had a guy from cambridge admissions speak to me before and he was saying phone every college (Cam) and find out blah blah. But maybe that was because it was a different question and uni.

    Thanks !!

    As a rule of admissions to both universities, you shouldn't be more or less likely to gain entry depending on college selection. Yes, the statistics show more or less likely to get into certain colleges etc. But these change each year and is never usually very significant.

    There is certainly no harm in ringing around colleges, particularly since your circumstances are a bit less typical.
