    Hi everyone, I’m an italian student and next year I’m planning to apply to Oxford and other universities.
    My teachers are having problems writing the reference letter for me, because they don’t know what to write. Where can I find materials online?

    They need to be able to comment on your ability and interest in the subject and to do uni level work. They should also talk about any specific achievements not on your application and any extenuating circumstances.

    Doonesbury can you help?

    Does this help?

    Also here's what Cambridge say (yes a different university, but they have the same approach to admissions).
    https://www.undergraduate.study.cam....lege-reference

    They have until October, there's no rush

    NB. You only have one reference, and one personal statement, that goes to all your universities. Don't write it specifically for just one university.

    I have another question about grades, actually. My teachers give very low grades, for instance the maximum score you can get in the majority of the subjects is 8/10. I have already tried to talk to them, but it didn’t make any difference. I understand that this affects my application a lot, so do you think I should try to write to the universities I apply?
