Applicants to Oxford and Cambridge are ambitious, academically-gifted, and accomplished - so how do Admissions Tutors decide who is offered that highly competitive place? And when an interviewer asks you to 'tell me about a banana', what exactly are they looking for in your answer?
So you want to go to Oxbridge? Tell me about a banana... is full of practical advice on how to make an informed application to Oxbridge at each stage of the increasingly competitive admissions process, featuring contributions from former Admissions Tutors and the team at Oxbridge Applications, the education consultancy.
This edition now includes 50 brand new interview questions, and new chapters on submitting written work, reapplying to Oxbridge, and the new Oxbridge Admissions Tests. This guide draws on the experiences of thousands of successful Oxbridge graduates who provide insight into how they would approach the application process if they had to do it all over again.
