    Getting into oxbridge. (Oxford/Cambridge)

    Hey guys.
    I am aware that the UK universities are more focused purely on academia whereas the US uni's care more about extra-curricular activites. Would a 99.5 with a good interview do the job? Not just for Oxbridge but Imperial college of London as well.

    So since you're aware, do you have any extra-curricular activities?

    Also I would recommend that you do psats and stats (and study for them) as universities in England typically focus more on the academic side of student. Doing compettions that relate to the subject you are aiming to study can also be good, as it can be used to show that you are passionate about the subject.
