    Hi!

    I'm thinking about applying for a msc/mphil, computer science, in oxbridge obviously.

    The point is, computer science programs are very competitive (as far as I know) and there are too much good students applying for them.

    My profile: - Telecommunication engineering (networks speciality) still studying, GPA: 75%

    In my country, >70 is a very good GPA, I'm the only student with a 100% performance in my school, passing all the courses at the first attempt,

    I'm not sure if I will be the n1 of my promotion, but I will be top3. I know Oxbridge is very competitive, and I'm not sure I'm worthy to study there since there will be students with a 10/10 GPA.

    In Cambridge, the minimum requirement to apply from Spain is 80%, but in Oxford they only ask for a "First", being "First" a 70% or 85% depending of where you check it. So I'm a bit confused with this grade system...

    Thanks

    Contact both departments and ask about potentially making an application.

    When it comes down to it, you can apply to both anyway...
