I'm pretty confused about the Canadian requirements for Oxford entry and wondering if any Canadians have any experience with Oxford applications/requirements.
For grades, it says on their site that any high school diploma is acceptable and a minimum of 85% is needed. However, that seems really low to me, seeing as many Canadian schools ask for higher and they aren't nearly as prestigious as Oxford. It also seems low compared to their IB requirements which, from what I've read, are equivalent to about 96%.
Additionally, it came to my attention that AP classes may be necessary, as I saw someone say that AP is equivalent to UK A-levels. My school, however, does not offer any AP courses.
At the moment, I am a Grade 11 student with all my grades over 90%. But, with no AP courses and confusion over the whole 85% minimum thing, I have no idea if that is sufficient for Oxford, or any UK uni really.
Any help would be appreciated, it seems that the more I read into it, the more confused I get. Thank you!
How do you think you'll do?
