Hello! I’m thinking of applying to Oxford this coming year (as a student from the US). I have more than enough qualifying tests for the major I’m hoping to apply to (PPE), but I don’t know which ones to choose! The website indicates that students should submit three scores and suggests including one from a math exam (I’ve settled on AP Calc for this one), another from a history exam, and one from something that involves writing. At first I was thinking of doing my APUSH test (5) to knock the second and third birds out with one stone, but I also got an 800/800 on my US History SAT subject test. Since a 5 is a bit less selective than an 800, I’d assume the 800 may look a bit better? In that case, I’d probably submit my AP US Gov exam for my third (essay-based) test. And on top of all that: given that Oxford is a UK university, do they want us to avoid US-based subjects (e.g. APUSH, AP US Gov)? I couldn’t imagine they wouldn’t give tests like that the same consideration as Europe- or world-focused exams, but you never know. I’m definitely overthinking all of this, but I’d love some help.
Best of luck to all of you in the lovely lovely lovely process that is college apps! I’m sure we’ll all get through this okay<3
