Success Stories
Received an offer to study Engineering at Cambridge

I really enjoyed working with the Oxbridge Formula, and I especially benefitted from the Physics Summer Course and the Physics-based Interview Day.

The summer course was extremely helpful since we were encouraged to think critically when dealing with obscure problems, whilst also reinforcing our A-Level knowledge in Physics and Maths. We also went through time-saving techniques, which is incredibly important for the ENGAA as it is so time-pressured.


The interview day allowed me to build up my confidence by observing how others approach interviews and by getting into the habit of discussing my thoughts when tackling a question. The feedback system ensured I could then see my strengths and weaknesses, which I could work on before the real interview.

Received an offer to study Engineering at Cambridge

I was on the Oxbridge Formula Engineering programme last year and found it enjoyable, rewarding, and extremely helpful for my application.

The weekly workshops were especially useful as they helped me develop my ability to break down problems into smaller, more doable parts. We would practise doing this in small groups with guidance from the tutors. Over time, I saw myself improve and become able to tackle seemingly complicated problems that I’d otherwise have no idea how to solve.

I also really appreciated the video solutions to past paper questions. I was sitting the ENGAA, for which only a small number of past papers existed, so having a video explaining the best way to approach each question was extremely useful for allowing me to learn the most possible from each one.

The papers are genuinely hard, so you’re not going to find the best approach to all the questions just by looking at them. I improved a lot from making mistakes in my first attempt at the paper, then going to the videos to see how I should have thought about the problem differently and what time-saving and problem-solving tricks I could use for similar questions in the future.

I also think I really benefitted from the fact that the programme allowed me to start early, follow a well-defined plan and attend workshops every week. It helped me to stay motivated and keep on top of the workload.

Oxbridge entry is more competitive than ever before

In an uncertain world, your best asset is an elite education.
Getting into Oxbridge is one thing, but the rewards that will follow are even greater!
What does getting into Oxbridge mean to you?

  • Studying with the best minds in the country?
  • Being taught in 1-1 or 2-1 sessions by world-class academics?
  • Proving that you have what it takes to survive a tough STEM degree and coming out the other side with fantastic grades?
  • The massive sense of accomplishment?
  • Making yourself infinitely more employable?
  • Getting that warm, fuzzy feeling on Results Day, knowing that you’ve made your family proud?

You know that by investing in your education today, you will reap the rewards for years to come.
And if you’re going to get help, why not get the best help you possibly can?
Mastery of Oxbridge-admissions-level Maths and Physics is rare to find. Even rarer is someone who can teach it well.

Are you 100% committed to your success?

We will help you...
  • Tap into the knowledge of our expert Oxbridge-educated tutors – There’s nothing like the experience of someone who has been there and done that. Use our experience to get ahead.
  • Lead your own revision with our vault of exclusive online video resources – Take charge of your own admissions test preparation. Oxbridge are looking for self-starters and independent study is absolutely key to success. But only if you know you’re going in the right direction. Our 500+ in-depth videos explain the thought processes of expert problem solvers so you literally start thinking like one.
  • Receive a highly personalised learning experience – We’ll work with you to identify areas of weakness across the whole application – personal statement, admissions test, and interview – so that you can accelerate your progress and turbo-charge your application.
  • Empower yourself with our in-depth interview preparation – One of the most nerve-wracking parts of the entire admissions process (interviews may remain online this year, which will only add to the nerves), the interview is often an area where many otherwise-excellent candidates fail to shine. Together, we’ll make sure you’re able to show your true potential at interview.

Our triple satisfaction guarantee to you:
Price Match

We are sure that no other organisation offers such a comprehensive and rigorous package of online and group courses specifically for Engineering admissions tests and interview preparation. In the unlikely event that you do find an identical package at a lower price, carried out by tutors with comparable credentials, we guarantee to match the price.

Tutor Quality

We guarantee the quality of our tutors. All of our tutors are either Oxbridge-educated or hold a PhD from a Russell Group University in a relevant subject. Our tutors go through an intense selection process before they qualify to work with us, and even after that they undergo further training to shape them into the best teachers possible.

Money Back

There is a 14-day money-back guarantee available to students who attend the first two weekly workshops and send us their notes and marked questions to prove that they have used the online resources. If you have done both of these and you still don’t feel that the programme will benefit you on your journey to Oxbridge, just let us know and we would be happy to refund you your full payment. Please note that, if you have had some 1-1 tuition sessions with us, these will still be payable.

Example ENGAA Video Solution
I already have the online resources as part of the Bronze Online Bundle, so I don't need these again.

Not to worry, send us a message at with the order number of your previous bundle and we’ll send you a way to purchase the bundle at a further discount.

I don't know which subject I want to study yet. Can I still sign up to the Mastermind?

As a Mastermind student, you get access to ALL of the workshops that we run, and one summer course and one October course (or equivalent). These will initially be allocated to you when you choose the course, but if you change your mind, half way through the year, we can reallocate the courses you have access to.

What happens if I can't make one of the dates?

Everything we do here at the Oxbridge Formula is highly interactive, so you will get a much better experience if you can attend live. Therefore, we recommend you plan around the dates of the intensive courses if possible. Nonetheless, if you absolutely cannot attend, you will also have access to pre-recorded versions after each course has taken place. If practical, we also intend to record parts of the skills workshops. Please note that we are not able to share a recording of the interview group course.

Who is the Oxbridge Mastermind aimed at?

The Mastermind is for students who are aiming for 2023 entry or deferred entry in 2024.

I'm applying for Maths at Cambridge, so my test isn't until June 2023.

If you are applying for Maths at Cambridge, this Mastermind is Part 1 of our offering. Part 2 is our separate Mastermind for Year 13 STEP students, which runs from January of Year 13 until STEP takes place in June of Year 13.

Is the Oxbridge Mastermind for me?

When you apply, you will complete a baseline academic assessment and discuss with us your motivations for applying to Oxbridge to allow us to determine if you are a good fit for the Mastermind. We only work with highly motivated and determined students as our programme requires a good deal of independent study on top of the classes and courses on offer. To be successful, students will need to spend several hours each week on independent study, a level of commitment is required of all students.
