How We can Support Your Application

Our research shows that applicants who begin preparation early have improved chances of success.

This is a good time to consider whether Oxbridge will suit you and what your course choice will be. For some, final decisions are made following AS results. However, the earlier you begin, the more time you will have for preparation. Once you have chosen a direction, you can choose a college, focus on important summer exams, and build a breadth of wider reading beyond your syllabus. 

Our support: During these months, we provide a wide range of online resources for free and expert Oxbridge consultancy to help you fully understand the process, make informed decisions and build a strategy for preparation. In the Easter and summer holidays, you can attend a subject-taster course called ‘The School of Ideas‘ that offers a taste of Oxbridge learning in a subject. At this stage in the year, students are able to begin one-to-one, subject-specific preparation with Oxbridge-graduate tutors on our International or UK Premier Services

 

For students applying to Oxbridge or for Medicine, this is a time to focus intensively on completing an academically impressive personal statement and UCAS form and to begin focused further study outside of your school syllabus.

Our support: From this point, we work with candidates to develop preparation strategies following the release of A level results, provide personal statement guidance, and plans for independent study as part of our Oxbridge consultancy. Our Premier Clients and those on our Access Schemes will enter a period of intensive study and personal statement drafting and redrafting with their mentor and former admissions tutors at Oxbridge. 

Following the UCAS deadline on October 15th, preparation for the admissions tests and interviews can begin in earnest.

This is a crucial time for developing confidence when communicating about your subject both in written and verbal form. Students will aim to familiarise themselves with the entrance exams such as the BMAT, LNAT and Oxbridge-only tests as well as with the interview process.

Our support: Throughout October, November and early December, Oxbridge Applications runs events preparing students for the tests and interviews. These can be between one and three days long and take place publicly or in schoolsInterview Preparation Courses and Admissions Test Seminars are delivered by test and communications specialists, as well as by our Oxbridge-graduate trained tutors and are all highly interactive and subject- or test- specific.

Feedback From Our Clients

  • And so we wait… No matter what the outcome, I wanted to thank you and your team again for all of the fantastic coaching. In particular, Hannah was a wonderful mentor for her throughout the preparation. Giselle felt very positive about her application and she came away from the official interviews confident about how she performed. She has no regrets.

    Mother of waiting applicant, 2013. In January Giselle was offered a place. 

  • We are so thrilled, and SO glad she came to you. You did her so proud and we are massively in your debt. You could not have been more inspirational.

  • Elle received some fantastic support form her school but it is hard to imagine how she would have had the confidence to go for this opportunity as hard as she did without the facts, knowledge, niche experience and pointed feedback that she received from Oxbridge Applications

  • I’m so glad we came to see you that summer evening and so grateful for your encouragement. She got in – she’s just heard she’s got a place at Wadham! It’s fantastic news and the support she got from Oxbridge Applications made it happen.

  • Thank you for your help over the last year or so. Oxbridge Applications has provided a stunning framework through which James has grown. His capacity to move himself into contention has been fostered tremendously.

  • We so admired your professionalism and constant support. We were particularly impressed by Robin’s invaluable sessions. He truly inspired her – challenging her and stretching her – and she really missed them when she stopped after her interview. He engendered in her even more passion for ASNaC and we were so utterly thrilled that she is now able to pursue her passion.

    Mother of successful ASNaC applicant, 2013.

  • We definitely thought Tyler had a decent chance but as the process went along, we could see him becoming a stronger and more focused candidate and think your help was invaluable in helping him be the best he could possibly be. He really enjoyed his interviews and felt he couldn’t have done better – so even if he had not been successful that would have been a significant outcome from working with you.
