Why are you taking so many subjects - drop one so you can improve your predctions - you need three top grades.

I chose Cambridge because I think the place is nicer (ie prettier) and more student-oriented than Oxford, as well as the fact that the exam structure suited me better and that Cambridge’s law course is more flexible. This was quite important for me as I have an idea of what sort of law I’ll likely be specialising in

Further aspects that you might consider include the fact that Cambridge’s law faculty is, in my opinion, much nicer than Oxford’s and the fact that Oxford requires you to sit the LNAT, which, as someone who did well in this test, I will readily concede can be somewhat luck-based

Reasons you might want to go for Oxford over Cambridge include the fact that they deselect more aggressively prior to interview. This means that there’s less competition at the stage of the interview, which could be a plus if you are worried about the interview and think your application qualities are stronger on paper than when you’re in front of someone. Their entry requirements are also lower than Cambridge’s (AAA vs A*AA), which I imagine is probably less stressful when it comes to sitting the exams.

Happy to answer any questions you might have.

Your subject combination is fine. I would, however, advise you to take 3 A-levels unless you’re interested enough in all 4 to enjoy doing them. There is no advantage to having more than 3 A-levels and indeed having 4 may render you less likely to achieve the offer requirements.

Oh okay. Thank you for your help
