If you’re considering any of the really super-competitive routes in Higher Education – say, any course at Oxbridge or any top Law course – take a look at the following useful articles:
- turns out the secret of getting into law is not specific legal knowledge but the power of your critical thinking and ability to apply it to new material
- getting into Oxbridge still looks a bit loaded against you if you’re from state schools in the UK, no matter how bright you are – justifiable or not (I think it’s not and there is bias in the system) you need to learn to play this by interviewing well
Bear in mind that AAA is the minimum for either of these routes and A*AA is now the common offer. Come talk to me if either of these routes are of interest to you.
