Over the past few years the University of Oxford has seen large numbers of students from Hong Kong making successful applications and there are opportunities available to meet with Charlotte Isaacs, Student Recruitment Officer from the University of Oxford at:
Sha Tin College, No. 3 Lai Wo Lane, Fo Tan, Sha Tin, Hong Kong – Friday 21 April, 5.30pm – to book on this event please go to this web address: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/university-of-oxford-admissions-talk-tickets-32256397754
St Paul’s Co-Educational College, 33 MacDonnell Road, Hong Kong on Monday 24 April, 19:00-20:30 – to book onto this event please go to this web address: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/university-of-oxford-admissions-talk-tickets-32257468958
These sessions are designed to provide detailed and accurate information regarding all of the aspects that one might consider when applying to Oxford. This will include the choice of course, the collegiate structure of the University and the application process itself, including admissions tests and interviews.
The sessions are primarily aimed at students considering applying to the university in October 2017 for a 2018 start date, and therefore would normally be in their penultimate year at school although students in Year 11 may also find it informative. Further information will be sent out to all who have booked onto the event nearer the time.
Competition for places at Oxford is strong, and tutors would normally consider students achieving the following grades; between A*A*A and AAA at A-Level, or the International Baccalaureate with around 38-40, including core points, with 6s and 7s at Higher Level, or the HKDSE with grade 5s in three elective subjects, (the exception is for candidates applying to study Mathematics, who would need 5* in the compulsory Mathematics course, 5 in the Mathematics extended paper, and another 5 in another subject.)
