I'm applying to study French and Italian at St. Hilda's - for my French piece, can I translate an analytical essay I have done on Shakespeare in English? Or does it have to be a topic focused on by my French syllabus?

Hi! I'm currently studying at Oxford for French and English. For my French essay, I wrote an essay on some French plays I'd read independently rather than on my French syllabus. However, I know plenty of people wrote on their A-level topics and that was fine too. I think the quality of your language is what will matter most. I'm not sure whether translation is the best idea though, it would be better to write with a 'french' frame of mind, otherwise you risk it being too anglicised! Hope it all goes well for you.
