Very vague question - I'd recommend looking into the course manual, structure and teaching style. Also look into UNIQ (free summer school ran by the uni itself) - you can do a week as a chemistry student. I did it and it gave me a pretty good insight into it all - and yes it was hard (for me anyway!).

How do you manage your time. Like do you have free time. Are you as free as other STEM students??


Also I cant apply for UNIQ. I dont go to state school

Best of luck. The interviews are an amazing experience and the other interviewees you'll meet are incredible - try not to keep up in your room between interviews though! We spent all the time playing uno and watching blackadder in the jcr lol. Hope you have a great gap year too!

Very hard. But very doable if you're good at time-management and motivated

So basically the same as every other Oxford course
