You won't meet their entry requirements by a considerable margin, so no.

I also can't help but think that your GPA is lower than it should be - is a 3.3 the equivalent of a low 2.1 in the UK? What's the excuse for that?

I don't think that's how that is done. If I am wrong and coming across as a massive prick then feel free to egg me but where did you get your 82.5% score from...? Did you do 3.3/4 *100...? If you're an american or at a country that uses the similar american GPA system then you can't just translate your GPA percentage as a percentage of the total GPA since it's not linearly weighted I don't think.

Via Oxford: "We would expect you to be performing at a high 2.1 or first class level (a US GPA of 3.5-4.0)". Again this is america-specific but I don't think you can just divide gpa to get the equivalent since otherwise oxford would not consider 3.5 to be a high 2:1 ( its 87.5% which would be a first over here)

It appears that OP has deleted their post but, if they have a First class degree and a 25 in the IB, it really could go either way. OP should email the university directly and ask whether they'd be considered.

This is not how it works. You don't multiply to get the UK percentage score. For US universities, this chart is the best approximation: http://www.fulbright.org.uk/going-to...ture/academics. A 3.7 would be seen as equivalent to a First. Oxford and Cambridge - both of which require Firsts for most of their postgrad courses - usually put their postgrad offers at a 3.7 or 3.8 for US applicants. That should say it all, really.

Obviously, OP hasn't studied in the US, so they should consult the equivalent chart or email the universities directly. No point in guessing.
