yes, 1.0 is the best you can have. bloody cool, wouldn't have expected that at all.
anyway, i think i'll start studying maths here in germany from october on - to keep my brain busy etc. or even expand it
, and still apply to oxford, and, should they want me, just leave after my first year of maths.
but yes, i have lots of time over the summer to read and write my ps etc. do you recommend any books apart from those that were mentioned above? what else to do to prepare? problem is - last year the questions in the interview weren't mean or particularly difficult, when looking back it simply feels like i walked in there without my head.
applied to magdalen last time round - and i'm not normally the type of person that feels intimidated quickly but it was quite awful.
dunno which college to apply to this time round, want it to be a bit smaller maybe, and more relaxed, somewhere in the upper middle of the ranking?
do i need to write a new ps? because my main motivation has not changed. and after spending hours on my ps i actually quite like it. do you think they'll look at last year's application and compare the statements / references, even if i apply to a different college? do i need a new reference? updated, surely, but all new?
thank you for your help!
