I applied to Oxford while I was in sixth form and didn't get in
I had 10 A stars at gcse
I missed offers into medicine
Went through clearing
Ended up at St. George's doing Biomed
I have 3 Bs at A level
Now part of the reason why I think I was so miserable at a level was because I realised I didn't want to be doing medicine anymore but it was too late to change my mind
I would love to do something like law or history or anthropology. I always loved writing and history at school and was part of debate clubs. Those were the subjects that always appealed to me but in thinking that medicine was the best route for me, I did biology chemistry and Latin for A level.
I have already applied to Oxford once so I am WELL AWARE of how difficult it is.
But the way of the world is that sometimes improbable things happen if you pursue them hard enough.
So I'm not asking about my chances. They are slim.
I am asking if anybody knows of any undergraduate courses with a foundation year at Oxford (or Cambridge) that better prepares you for a course different to your a levels?
Or if you knew anyone with a levels similar to mine changing their mind and getting into oxford
Any other advice that you may have would also be appreciated.
