Oxbridge Success! – Royal Alexandra and Albert School –

24 Jan 2019

Congratulations to Eva Murray and Kaka Nwokocha! The Year 13 boarders have received offers to study at Cambridge and Oxford, respectively.

Eva, 19, applied to read Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Cambridge and was delighted to receive an offer from the world renowned university. As part of her UCAS application, she also applied to other top universities but was keen to study at Cambridge because of the opportunities it offers.

The application process for her course was very competitive with just over 50 places available to study the subject of her choice. Eva will hopefully be joining Girton College in September.

Kaka,18, was also delighted with her offer to read Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford University. She explained her choice of university by saying, “I’ve always been taught to strive for excellence, and Oxford comes second in the world for Archaeology and Anthropology. When I visited the university, I liked the way they presented the course and I’m excited to learn more about it.”

Kaka will be joining her first choice of college, Magdalene College, which only offers two places for new applicants who wish to study Archaeology and Anthropology.

Kaka and Eva are now working hard to achieve the grades they need this summer. We wish them the best of luck, and look forward to more of our students receiving offers from their first choice universities.
