Congratulations to our Upper Sixth students who have been receiving their university offers over the last month. We were delighted to hear of the success of thirteen of our applicants to Oxford and Cambridge.
Oxbridge universities are not the only competitive selection processes that our students will pursue – medicine, degree apprenticeships and other universities can be equally challenging – but these students deserve our congratulations for their application to the particularly rigorous academic preparation that is required.
In an increasingly competitive context, we are pleased that a range of disciplines is represented too.
Those successful at Cambridge received offers to study Economics, Law, Computer Science, Music, Natural Sciences, Engineering, and Computer Science. On average across all subjects, Cambridge University typically receives six applications for every place, but naturally there is some variation between courses.
Our Oxford offers cover Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), Law, Psychology & Philosophy, English, Mathematics & Philosophy, and Medicine. Last year over 24,000 people applied for undergraduate courses at Oxford University, of which there were 3,300 places.
These students, if they decide to take up the offers, will join the fifteen students who accepted Oxbridge places last year and who will already have one year under their belts but will undoubtedly be on hand to provide advice and support if needed.
Thank you to the staff who supported the students through this process and we wish every student making plans for their futures the very best.
