Oxford reapplication from first year at another universityMar 2019
I was rejected by Oxford for an undergraduate History and Politics degree this year. I am considering reapplying but would prefer not to take a gap year as my second choice is a Scottish university; if I took a gap year and was rejected again that would effectively mean five years as an undergraduate level student. In my feedback I was told that I was on the ‘cusp’ of a place but had slightly underperformed in my essay and interview. I have since written a far better essay and can identify my key interview failures. Is it worth trying again? And if so, from another university?
