    I want to apply for Japanese, Wadham admits maybe 1-2 students for this per year whereas Hertford admits 4-5, and has a more established community around the subject.

    Hertford also seems to be less academically successful (so less pressure, which is a big thing for me). However, I'm quite into sport and Wadham is good for that. Socialising is also very important to me.

    Any ideas which might be better?
    If socialising is important to you then size of college is perhaps the most significant. As a principle, the university holds the same standards academically across all colleges.

    Just for clarification, Wadham may have one or two places for Japanese, and Hertford four or five, but the number of applicants competing for those places is proportionally different (id est, there will be more applicants for Japanese at Hertford because there are more places). Your chances of getting into any college is similar if not same, and playing with odds won't get you anywhere.
