Hi, I was wondering if Oxford or Cambridge care more about Higher results and whether A’s were band 1 or band 2?
I achieved 4 band 1 As but only a band 2 A on maths, which would be more likely to overlook this?
Thanks, Emilia
I didn’t think anybody actually sees the bands? I thought they just see the A and that’s it’s– and if u look at the requirements they don’t really specify bands, they’d probably expect band one, but I don’t think they actually see the band.
And yes, they will look at your highers, probably Nat 5s, too.
