Chance me for Cambridge (or Oxford) /UCL/LSE law?


Recommended Posts

So i'm nearing the end of T1 and my grades are as follows:

776- HL Lang Lit, Economics, History

777- SL Biology, Math AA, Spanish B (taking exam this year)

If I maintained these grades to be predicted so, and also got three extra bonus points (thus a 44) and a good LNAT score, would I have a shot at Oxbridge? I'm afraid that my combo doesn't look too academic.

And would it be wise to switch to a 4th HL? I'm acing SL Bio and might switch up.

 

Thank you!

Your subject choices are fine. Don't worry about it. I had the exact same HL subject choices as you and a lower predicted score and I got into all my chosen unis except Oxford for Law. (But I didn't get into Oxford because I effed up the interview - the fact that I got to the interview stage is enough to tell me my subject choices were fine).

Hey

Basically, it's not all about what grades you have. Those are great grades and will certainly help your chances, however, Oxford and Cambridge look for students that fit them best. It depends on the course you would like to do, how well you do in the specialised testing and how well you do in your interview. My friend got a 45 on her IB, was extremely sporty and outgoing and basically amazing at everything and she didn't do so well on the specialised Oxford testing and therefore didn't even get to the interview stage. 

It depends on what course you are looking to take for whether your classes right now are academic enough or not. I would definitely decide on what you want to do before you move your Biology to HL.
