Tomorrow is a big day for many of you finding out whether or not you have managed to obtain a place at Oxford.
When Oxford are making their decision, they take into account the following:
Written work and/or admissions tests
Exam results and predicted grades
Just look at that list...so much longer than the application process for other universities. No wonder it's so difficult to get offered a place! The process is rigorous and only a few students for a given subject get into each college. So, it's certainly not to say you're not clever if you don't get offered a place; Oxford just don't feel for one reason or another that you're quite right for them.
Everyone I know loved whichever university they ended up at, so although, at the time, Oxford can seem like the be all and end all; you will no doubt still be happy and successful elsewhere.
If you do manage to get a place tomorrow then a huge congratulations!
Keep the questions coming; if you're confused about anything tomorrow message me on Instagram and I'll do my best to help!
Remember if you don't get in this time around but Oxford is your dream, you can always reapply.
If you're not offered a place, try not to let this knock your confidence; it's such an amazing achievement to be selected for interview and you should be really proud of that.
If you are offered a place, celebrate away and then work hard to make sure you achieve your conditional offer. There's nothing worse than being offered a place and then missing your grades.
