    I have no desire to post my GCSE grades and bleet like yourself, but I did rather well, passed all 13 at higher level. No I'm not at oxbridge and no I'm not applying there, I wouldn't be able to cope with the work load unfortunately as I'm rather lazy when it comes to academia.

    Actually if you are so unfocused on which subject to do (economics or physics?) it's unlikely that you are oxbridge material either. They aren't looking for jack of all trades master of none - they're looking for people enthusiastic and dedicated to their chosen subject who will excel in that area and become money-making post grads.

    ok then. you dont htink i will get into oxbridge? we'll see...
    I didn't say I don't think you will get in.

    I said that I don't believe someone who can't decide what subject they want to study for the next three years and who is changing their mind every day or so and applying for what they percieve as the easiest subject to get into is oxbridge material.

    If you can explain why a lack of decisiveness and dedication to your subject makes you oxbridge material please enlighten us.

    because i have only just started my AS Levels and i am considering several degrees before i dive straight into obsession with one degree, despite it being absolutely ages until i apply.

    As i said, i will be applying for physics at oxford. i said this ages ago, and i'll say it again. i was just curious about economics. people are allowed to talk you know, it isnt illegal. I dont need your permission.

    and anyway, how on earth can you judge if i wont get in.

    whether i get in or not, I AM STILL OXBRIDGE MATERIAL.

    IF PEOPLE GET IN WITH LESS THAN 6 A*'s and 4 A's....THEN I HAVE A FAIR CAHNCE OF GETTING IN.

    AND I GUARANTEE YOU THAT I WILL BE GIVEN AN OFFER. INFACT, IN OVER A YEAR'S TIME, I WILL COMEBACK IN HERE AND TELL YOU ALL THAT I HAVE BEEN OFFERED A PLACE.

    AND I DONT CARE WHAT YOU THINK, YOU ARE ANOTHER NOBODY AND YOU ARE NOONE TO JUDGE MY CAPABILITY.

    I AM VERY INTELLIGENT AND MY ATTITUDE IS SPOT ON.

    You were curious about economics...strange - because you didn't seem interested in the course content, the assessment types, the department environment or any of the other things people interested in a subject at a specific uni usually ask about

    You asked how easy it was to get in.

    And when you found out you decided to stick with your original plan - because the success rate is higher.

    You'll forgive me if I question your motives because the motives you've displayed solely in this thread are extremely questionable...and are the sole reason why I question whather you are "oxbridge material".

    As I said before - and I'll say again until it sinks in - I haven't once questioned your ability to get into oxbridge...plenty of people succeed in getting in over other just as worthy of their place...and you have an entire year to mature into a good potential applicant. I would never presume to make the decision about who "will" or "wont" get into another university...especially one as competetive as oxbridge where so many good applicants get turned away through no fault of their own.

    It's good that you are so determined to get in to oxbridge - it takes a lot of determination and hard work...as well as a fair sized chunk of luck. If you do get in congratulations...if you don't I hope you can learn from it.

    As for your A level results - they are irrelevent. Oxbridge always has and will for the next few yrs valued interview performance far more highly than GCSE grades and predicted grades.

    And you're final comment would be funny if I didn't think you were deadly serious.
