Somerville College Roadshow
The three students who are currently studying at Somerville College came to discuss the common misconceptions that many students in comprehensive schools such as Heston have about getting into top universities such as Oxford. They attended comprehensive schools themselves and so had the same experience as us, they were very helpful in terms of getting a better understanding of the process of applying and how to prepare for the interview. I enjoyed the friendly tone from the students and their advice was frank and honest. This talk was very helpful in clearing up some of our misconceptions, and it also gave me an insight into what applying to a top university such as Oxford would be like.
