If you are an exceptional student you may want to consider applying to Oxford or Cambridge. Competition for places is extremely tough and simply being ambitious is not enough. 

  • If you have IGCSEs you should have all A and A* grades. You should be achieving 40+ points at IB and you should also be able to demonstrate intellectual curiosity and strong thinking skills in your chosen subject beyond the level of the IB syllabus.
  • You apply through UCAS as an Early Applicant before 15th October
  • You can apply to either Oxford or Cambridge.
  • Both universities have a college system and you can apply to specific colleges or an open application.
  • Both Oxford and Cambridge interview prospective students. You will really need to 'shine' at the interview to have any chance.
