The entry process at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities is a complex one, the interviews are very important, as they are designed to assess a student’s understanding and critical ability, and also his/ her enthusiasm for and commitment to the chosen subjects. It is important for students to be able to “think outside the box”.
In many subjects there are also written tests at interview. Sometimes these are a test of the student’s ability to move beyond the demands of A Level or IB and to tackle more demanding (and often more general) questions. In other subjects, which have not been studied at school, the tests are designed to assess aptitude, eg for PPE, or Law.
If you are looking to enter one of these universities you will need help and support. At TECLA we have several Programmes run by experts, who are experienced tutors and have studied themselves at Oxford or Cambridge and who will help you:
