02/03/2013: By now, all of this year’s Milestone ‘Oxbridge’ applicants have received the universities eagerly awaited decision. Following interviews in early December, nearly half of those students who had been invited also received an offer from Oxford or Cambridge, while three of those students who didn’t were placed in the Cambridge pool of applicants, which shows that the decision was a close one.
As the results are beginning to come in from the universities with a later application deadline than Oxford and Cambridge, we can already proudly report that Milestone students have secured places at top universities like Bath, Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, Imperial College, King’s College, St Andrews, UCL and Warwick. Stay tuned for more.
This year, entry to top selecting universities has again been highly competitive. Data from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) showed that there were 406,186 applications this year, a 2.5% increase on the previous year.
