We are delighted at the Oxbridge success of our Upper Sixth pupils. Around 10% of this year-group have achieved offers from Oxford or Cambridge colleges this year. Once again, there is a healthy mix of subjects amongst those who received offers, but it is a good year for historians and engineers with three successes each.
Eight pupils have received offers from Cambridge and three from Oxford. The full breakdown is as follows:
|Alex Agedah||Natural Science||Selwyn|
|Oscar Saharoy||Engineering||St John’s|
|Zac Tiller||Chemical Engineering via Natural Science||Queen’s|
|Rashida Uddin||History||St John’s|
It is also worth noting that a number of excellent students unfortunately missed out on this occasion – they worked equally hard and we are equally proud of their ambition and efforts. It is also pleasing to see that so many other Bancroftians are holding offers from their first choice universities and from Russell group institutions.
Every year sees increased competition for Oxbridge places and it is good to see Bancroftians competing successfully for places on the most popular courses.Simon Marshall, Head
Once again, a common characteristic of those applying for Oxbridge is a commitment to all aspects of life at school and they provide great evidence for the importance of engaging fully with everything the school has to offer and inspiration for future Oxbridge aspirants.
