Decisions about the application

Highly respected uni especially for maths. I like tutorial system.

Like oxford as a town. More likely to get into oxford without a-level physics and would not have to worry about step.

Enjoy it and am god at it.

Can’t remember.

Preparation

no

I got very little help with my application most of which i had to badger teachers for in the first place.

Start looking into what is expacted of you very early on and ask teachers for help.

Interview

yes

Oxford maths entrance exam

no

Was given two interviews at first. First went quite well second went very badly. Was then given a third which we ok.
