Cool choices - I assume Oxford is your no. 1 choice? What type of history do you like best?

Name: jm6
Degree: History
University choices: Cambridge, Durham, Exeter, Warwick, another (York? St Andrews?)
What subject(s) are currently studying?: History, English Literature, French, Maths, Further Maths
Predicted A2 grades: A*A*A*AB/A*A*A*A*A (underperformed in my Maths mocks but should be able to raise the predictions once I get back to school).
GCSE grades: 10.5A*s and an A in Additional Maths
Why History? One of the most fascinating and rigorous academic disciplines in my opinion - opportunities to analyse and weigh up a range of perspectives in order to consider not only past events but also times in which we live.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I'm a cross-country runner for my school as well as playing football and supporting West Ham

I’m planning on applying for Ancient and Modern History!

Choices: Edinburgh and Oxford (daring, I know, but I’m Dutch and I prefer Leiden Uni here in the Netherlands over all other UK uni’s)

Current subjects: History, Dutch, Latin, Geography, English, Art History, Drama, Philosophy, Maths (normal amount of subjects here)

Predicted grades: 8.5 (A*) overall

Why history: because I see it everywhere I go

Interesting fact: the first thing that inspired me to apply to Oxford Uni was Out of the Blue’s cover of All I Want for Christmas Is You (OOTB is an all-male Oxford choir) when I was 12!

If you've visited them go with the one you liked best. If you haven't visited, choose based on the descriptions. You may want to visit the Oxbridge forum for more details.

Ah cool. Why Mansfield? I didn't look at that one. I opted for Christ Church in the end, but I'm not feeling too great about it aha
