Decisions about the application

OK, so I didn’t get all A*s at GCSE, but my A-level results were excellent – so why not?? If I hadn’t, i would’ve always been asking ‘what if?’. I’d always wanted to go to Oxbridge, anyway

Oxford’s teaching seemed better, with more resources, and the city was bigger and had a real ‘buzz’. The colleges were generally smaller, and the nightlife seemed fab!

It is the smallest of all the Oxford colleges, and wasn’t TOO old – it had a really good community atmosphere, the food was good, and the tutors seemed friendly and helpful – it just seemed right for me…

Yes I would, because it was the best move I ever made,

GO FOR IT!!! (If you have at least AAB at A-level or equiv.)
