    Hi, I was just wondering who else got accepted onto the Target Oxbridge Programme and is going to the Welcome Event in a couple of weeks? Also if you did, what are you studying and what do you want to study?

    I take A-Levels in Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and Government and Politics and I would like to study Natural Sciences at Cambridge (although my grades are looking a bit questionable at the moment).

    ah okay! I don’t think im welcome event since i live 2 hrs from london, but it sounds good!! yes chem was so much easier at gcse - i had to drop maths earlier in the year (i was doing 4) as i had so much going on!

    Yeah, but I put that I'd be open to go to both. I've been to both Oxford and Cambridge once each but I'm going next Tuesday for a chemistry study day and I'm doing a UNIQ residential in summer at Oxford, I wanted the chance to stay at Cambridge too x

    Same! And wow, that’s so exciting!! I really wanted to apply to UNIQ, but it clashed with my biology fieldtrip which i couldn’t really change i went to a summer school at Cambridge in Year 11 (but for humanities), so I have been there at least once!

    I’ve also applied for summer schools at Lancaster (got in!), Nottingham and Bristol (sutton trust) x


    Also where are ALL THE OTHER TARGET OXBRIDGERS
