    Hey guys!
    I've recently fallen in love with Merton College at Oxford. I am a lower sixth student and would really appreciate any advice in getting an edge when applying. I have my heart set on English Literature.
    Thanks!

    Try and apply for one of their summer schools. Honestly, both people I know who have gotten into Oxford either went to Oxford's summer school or Eton's. There's plenty other ones you can go to as well, the Sutton Trust run them up and down the UK. Good luck!

    Do well in exams, read prolifically, hope

    That's probably as much as can reasonably be done
