The Problem with Generic Oxbridge Advice

You’re a smart, hardworking student with high academic aspirations for yourself.

Being able to study at Oxford or Cambridge would be a dream come true.

You’d like to study a STEM subject...or perhaps something related to economics

But The Oxbridge application is a minefield, with lots of moving parts: personal statement, admissions test, interview...

And you come to realise that much of the generic advice you’re receiving about applying to Oxbridge, such as “reading widely” doesn't necessarily apply to the subject YOU’RE interested in.

It seems as though much of the advice out there is aimed at arts and humanities applicants.

You’re desperately searching for a source of reliable advice on applying to Oxbridge for your subject.

Advice written by those who have gone through the application process successfully and have helped hundreds of students get into Oxbridge successfully.

Luckily for you, we felt exactly the same way when we were applying to Oxbridge, all those years ago.

And we decided to write a book to demystify the entire process:

The Oxbridge Formula

The ONLY book you need to understand the ins and outs of applying for:

Maths Computer Science Physics Engineering Physical Natural Science Economics PPE… and more!

"I love this book. I wish The Oxbridge Formula was available years ago. It is ideal for any parent or teacher who is wanting to support their child through to Oxbridge, or, frankly, any Russell Group universities.

"I consider myself relatively experienced in this world of Oxbridge applications... I went to Oxford and have given talks at Oxford. Yet, I have learned so much from reading this book."
Katharine Birbalsingh CBE
Headmistress and renowned educationalist
"This is an excellent one-stop guide to applying to Oxford or Cambridge particularly for STEM subjects. I am the principal of a top-performing sixth form which regularly gets large numbers to Oxbridge, and I found lots in here that will be useful for me, for teachers and for students.

"Every serious Oxbridge applicant should get this book, and every school library should have it."
John Rubinstein
Principal, Woodhouse College
