Hi all, i was recently invited to Oxford University to take part in a programme and while being there realised i’d really like to go there but thought i would never get the chance because of my GCSE grades. But then i got talking to admissions staff there and they informed me about extenuating circumstances. I achieved 7B’s and 5 C’s at GCSE but was predicted A’s and A*’s but failed to achieve these due to being hospitalised many times with anaemia and sinus tachycardia which had a huge impact on my schoolwork at the time. However, with that in mind, i am keen to study History at Oxford and am predicted AAAA (History, religious studies, chemistry) at a level including the Welsh Baccalaureate. With this in mind how likely do you think it is that i will be made an offer? Thank you
What are the downsides?
