    1. Congrats, you clearly have good grades and achievements.

    2. It's probably more relevant to tell us what country you're from, what type of school you attend and how good it is (e.g. does it typically send many students to Oxford or Cambridge, or other prestigious overseas institutions).

    3. Not sure how much it says for you that you couldn't use the search function to find the zillion threads on this subject. Do you really want us tell you your chances, or are you looking for validation, or are you just showing off?

    Thanks for your reply!
    I joined the student room quite recently and I wasn’t aware of the similar threads until after I made this post. I guess I made a wrong impression (or, perhaps, you were too quick to judge?)
    I was indeed genuinely interested if I could be a successful applicant.

    I am an international student and my school typically sends quite a few students to Cambridge (but not as many to Oxford).

    If you are predicted 2-4A*s you have as good a chance as any candidate who could feasibly get an offer, just keep working hard and keep up to date with current economic news.

    You clearly will have a decent chance if you apply as your stats are all really good. Also I don't think extra curriculars matter that much you just need to do good on the entrance test and interview. Also you said you are not sure if you should apply to Cambridge or not, if you want to go to Cambridge then apply there and the same should be said for any other universities as you have 5 choices. Good luck

    Also out of interest what competitions were these IMO?
