    Hi,
    I've been looking at applying to the Sutton Trust summer school program but I'm not sure what university I should choose.

    In the future I would like to get into Cambridge/Oxford which is why that would be my first choice, but as it is very competitive is it even worth me applying or would I be more likely to get into the program if I chose a different uni ? as i haven't decided which I should apply to (oxford/camb) I want to get a sense of what it's like

    I've already done a Physics Masterclass at Cambridge and will be going to a Study Day at Oxford in March

    Want to apply for either Maths, Physics or Comp Sci
    GCSE grades: Three 9's, 7 A*s and a B
    A levels: Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry

    It doesn't matter what university you apply to for Sutton Trust so long you meet the specific criterias that Sutton Trust sets out on their Summer School website. Personally I've applied to Cambridge for Sutton Trust Summer School to do History. Just waiting patiently until they email us whether we have a place or not in May afaik it is. Good luck!
