What's the best way to make your Oxbridge application stand out?

Oxbridge applications. We've all heard the rumours flying around about how your interviewers ask you to balance on your head whilst solving a simultaneous equation and reading a book. This is simply NOT true. Applying to Oxbridge can be daunting but it is simply a methodical process that should be taken one step at a time. Personal statement, UCAS application, UKCAT/BMAT prep, interview and then A-levels. Easy peasy right? With some guidance and good time management, you can still enjoy your last year at school whilst making sure you've given your application 100%!
