Stand-out Personal Statements
Our tutors are highly experienced in helping students to refine their ideas, structure their writing and undertake super-curricular learning to enhance their Personal Statements.
72% of the students who received Personal Statement support from Oxford and Cambridge Tutors in 2022 achieved an invitation to interview from Oxford, Cambridge and/or Imperial.
Tests: Preparation is Key
Oxford and Cambridge use admissions tests for the majority of courses to help them in identifying which students to interview. 61.5% of the students who came to us for admissions test support in 2022 achieved an offer of an interview.
Long term preparation helps students to master the exam technique and improve their performance.

I want to thank you and your team (especially Joseph) for providing me with the mock interview - it really helped.
