I am delighted to be inviting the Carfax Education team again to lead this insightful virtual conversation with recent Graduates from Oxford and Cambridge. Both the humanities and the sciences will be represented during this event. Acceptance into these elite establishments is extremely competitive, top grades are not enough to guarantee a place. Our four guests will share their stories, give valuable inside advice on making your application stand out and tell you what it is really like to study in the "dreaming spires".
