Applying for Oxbridge is an opportunity seldom approached correctly. The official statistics for Oxford and Cambridge paint a clear picture: to succeed, you must be amongst the top 20% of a strong cohort of applicants.

Many rely on a single tutor for the entire application process, but tutoring is no longer enough to guarantee a place.

Having relevant work experience will help you decide whether a career in medicine is right for you, and more importantly, gaining work experience in medicine demonstrates to admissions tutors that you are truly committed to the field.
