I’m an us student looking at studying history and economics at Oxford, economics at UCL and University of Edinburgh, and economics and economic history at LSE. I’m also in the IB program and taking HL Math, HL History, HL English, and HL Econ.
My dream is to get into Oxford and I think I might have messed up. I got 3 5’s in world history, European history, and APUSH. And am also expected 750+ on Math 2, US history, and got 760 on world history.
The issue is that my HL Econ teacher didn’t really teach us anything, and as we learn macro in year one and micro in year 2, I had to self study micro. As a result I got a 4 on AP macro and a 3 on Micro. In addition, I also got a 4 on BC Calc (which is worrying) However, Oxford states that for history and economics, no prior experience is required for economics, so will the low scores in AP Econ ruin my chances at Oxford? (I’ve given up on LSE at this point).
Lastly, since I am in IB, is it still possible for me to get a conditional offer based on IB scores?
Thank you so much!
