So basically I've come to the conclusion that I want to study Classics and Egyptology at university, however I am, unfortunately faced with the problem that only two universities in the UK actually offer this course; The University of Liverpool and Oxford university. Considering I am from the Liverpool area and want to move away for the 'typical' student life, I don't particularly want to go there. However I am also faced with a problem regarding Oxford; in year 10 and 11 my mental health deteriorated, due to bullying, OCD, depression etc and had to take, considerable amounts of time off school ( 4 months year 10, 1 month year 11) and didn't quite achieve Oxford grades ( A*AAABBBBC) , hence I'm wondering, with these given factors taken into consideration of what chances I actually have of getting on this course, I could most definitely show my interest in the subject at interview its just getting an interview is the problem. Also I am predicted A*AA in A levels English Lit, History and Law, and most definitely could achieve that and more. Any help would be much appreciated !!!
