Well done! Fab results. If you do take a year out and reapply you have to do it knowing that you might not get in second time around. It sounds like you had a strong application first time round so you would need to think carefully what you could do to make yourself an even stronger candidate. I’m not sure how 60% in the HAT compares to the average score for those made offers? Also, what would you do with your year off? Could you do something to strengthen your application. If you don’t get in , with the A level results that you have got it seems likely you will get in to Durham or Edinburgh, or another top uni. If you take a year off and reapply to Oxford , and don’t get in, will you look back and regret taking the year off, or will you be glad that you gave it another go so there aren’t any “what if’s “. If you do reapply, it is usually advisable to apply to a different college second time round.
Good luck xx
