Is Oxbridge a realistic target? watch

    • Thread Starter

    At GCSE I got 7 A's and 2 B's, so I think Cambridge would be the one to go for (would I have a chance at Oxford?).

    I'm studying History, Geography, Politics, Physics (AS) and an EPQ, for A-Levels.

    My current plan is to do a Geography degree and then maybe a GDL (SQE by then?). However, I feel that the lack of Biology might negatively impact my application, as apparently, it is quite useful for Geography at university. I also wanted to do Economics, however, the lesson times clashed with Geography. Would I be able to self-teach this? Would it be worth it?

    I don't think anyone has gotten into Oxbridge from my college, will I be at a disadvantage? I'm also looking for things that I could use in my personal statement too.

    most applicants have a high percentage of A*s but many at Cambridge also don't. as long as you meet the entry requirements there's no harm in applying
