Reviews from 2022 Bursary Students

I want to thank you and your team (especially Joseph) for providing me with the mock interview – it really helped. It made me come at problems and think in a different way, which I think was crucial in my interviews. I did receive an offer from Oxford for Chemistry and I intend to make Oxford my firm choice.

I received an offer from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, for Medicine! The mock interview I had was invaluable and I am extremely grateful to have received support from Oxford Tutors.

I have officially received an offer from Cambridge. Thank you to all at Oxford tutors for organising and offering the mock interview, it really built my confidence and prepared me for my interview! The mock interview, I believe, accurately reflected the real thing.
