How do you know if you're good enough to get into Oxbridge? I'd love to study law at Oxford or philosophy at Cambridge, but what kind of personal statement would you need for an institution like that? Obviously you'd need at least AAB grades at A-Level. Does anyone have an example of an old UCAS personal statement? I'm already freaking out about universities (I'm doing AS at the moment - I have to apply next year) so I was just wondering whether if I got 3 As (English Literature, RS Philosophy and Ethics, History) I'd be able to get into Oxbridge. And also, are my A-Level choices too narrow for consideration?
I don't think the personal statement is as important as you seem to think, and at Oxbridge there will always be an interview to test your enthusiasm, wider knowledge, etc.
if you are brave enough to apply then u are good enough to get in. i thought about ox4d but the ppl might be a bit too stiff and LSE is pretty good.
Philosophy a bigger thing at Oxford? Oh god I'm getting confused now. Too much to learn about different unis in too short a time....
I did think about LSE, but I don't want to live at home, and living in London is too expensive. So I'm not too keen on applying for either UCL or LSE.
