So You Want To Go To Oxbridge? is a unique guide to the real world of Oxbridge admissions. Oxbridge Applications has helped over 6,000 applicants to Oxford and Cambridge universities and has achieved a success rate of twice the average. Add to this the role of ex-admissions tutors, extensive interview histories and a network of over two hundred Oxbridge graduates who cover all subjects, and you have an organisation that is unique in helping students fulfil their potential. Whilst there are other books on how to get into Oxbridge, none matches the sheer scope and depth of knowledge of So You Want To Go To Oxbridge?, Oxbridge Applications is the only organisation in the world that focuses purely on getting students into Oxbridge and this is the first time it has revealed its secrets in book format. The book covers all parts of the application process - choosing a course, picking a college, the personal statement, submitted work, admissions tests and of course the all important interview. It has real past interview questions for all subjects, insights of successful applicants who have been through the process and inside advice from tutors who used to make the offers.
Now in its fifth edition with new and revised content, So you want to go to Oxbridge is the compendium of applying to Oxford and Cambridge, packed full of over eleven years' research on how to excel in the increasingly competitive Oxbridge application process.
