I am looking to apply to cambridge or oxford to expand my horizons. I know they are very hard to get into, but just want to increase my chances by expanding my borders.
I have written a personal statement and am preparing for the TMUA and MAT. I know you can only apply to either Oxford or Cambridge. However, while doing research for Cambridge qualifications, a few inconsistent details came up that I want to clarify.
First, Cambridge explicitly says that they need 5 5’s on APs. However, I have only taken 4 and scored 5 on all of them. I know Cambridge gives conditional offers to UK students, so they have to report their score after they are accepted. Is the same for US students? Can I apply, then take a single AP test afterwards and report that I got a 5?
Second, are their GPA requirements for US students? Online people say it is a 3.7 gpa but I cannot find any source on the official page which says so. Could anyone clarify this? Is there a similar GPA requirement for Oxford?
Lastly, they mention needing SAT 2 scores but obviously this year that was discontinued. Are they creating a policy for exceptions because of that. Their website seems to not be updated to that extent.
