Oxbridge Application Guide
We will discuss your academic ambitions and decide if you are eligible for the Oxbridge Service. This preliminary consultation is free of charge.
The Oxbridge application system involves submitting the best of your written work to date and we will review your essays and assist in selecting the work that ensures admissions officers are impressed. We will also professionally complete your application forms.
Your personal statement is crucial in determining whether your interview will be secured. Academic grades are essential, but high marks alone will not guarantee an interview. Because of this, your personal statement needs to be a masterpiece of persuasion and concision.
Oxbridge interviews are famously difficult. Every year candidates are caught off guard by the unusual questions which seek to separate the original thinkers from the merely well-taught. Our mock interviews will familiarise you with the setting and questions which can be expected and after the interview is complete we will give you 30 minutes of oral feedback.
