As an asian child brought up by asian parents my parents have always mentioned me going to Oxford or Cambridge and they've put me through tutors, forced me to do research about how to get in. they are ready to spend anything just so I can get in but I am not keen to study for passion, I just study to get the grades yet my parents don't understand that. we've had many arguments about this but I don't think the university is right for me. I don't know what to do, please someone give advice

Well if you actually know their mindset you might be able to come up with ideas to fight your case. So far your parents want you to go to Oxbridge because it will look good on your future CV for this future 'good job' you're going to have. What subject are you even going to apply for lol? If they want you to be a dentist, for example, Oxbridge isn't for you.
