Hi. I haven’t applied i’m just wondering for next year. What are the entry requirements and what grades do successful applicants typically have? There’s nothing about any of that on the website. It says ‘a large number’ receive Oxbridge places so i’m assuming successful applicants will have pretty good grades loool

s.m999 I’m assuming they do as I have 8 9’s. However, don’t feel discourage if your grades are slightly lower as they also look at where you did your GCSE’s and your personal statement

I got 4 9s 1 8s 4 7s 1 6s (i put the s’s so it would make more sense) so i got slightly more mixed GCSEs I guess you could say? my head of sixth form discouraged me from applying as she said I wouldn’t get in but I did so a i can only assume they consider your whole application in context with your passion for the subject and your references? I think it’s definitely worth applying. they say you should be of “oxbridge calibre” but that is a very subjective term as GCSE grades aren’t actually that important to Oxbridge at all apart from in your subject

I’m hoping to do med and probably at a top uni! I achieved my GCSE grades at a state school. They asked where I attend school in the form so I’m sure they take this into account .

Ah ok cool. Can I ask where your school is compared to the national average?

Been accepted to the Politics and Economics course.

From what I understand, it's one of the only Summer School's not based on "widening participation criteria" - i.e. your financial situation - but focusing mainly on grades.

I've also been accepted to the Politics and Economics course! I've never studied Politics or Economics so it should be interesting and insightful.
