Yeah online classes are one thing, but not being able to benefit from "being" at the University is another (for me this is even worse). This uncertainty is causing people to drop out, so many of those who are on the waiting lists are likely to receive offers in the coming weeks.

I think unis that are moving lectures online are still able to organise contact teaching such as tutorials and discussion groups so long as the groups are small. I wouldn’t mind having lectures online, but having all teaching online is another thing

Hi there,We are told that Oxford’s current plan is to go ahead with its face to face small group tutorials. Just wonder if the Faculty might be considering giving international students an additional option of online modality for better flexibility to suit their individual needs, so that many don’t have to give up their hard earned offers. The thought of a possible second wave, and of falling sick without much support or facing the hiccups in a lockdown will deter me from taking up the offer, which is so sad. With the option (which may be exercised for all or some of the academic terms), most of us can all take up the offer without the confusing wait and hesitation -and then decide nearer the start of the academic terms whether we can physically go to Oxford (and attend tutorials in the ordinary way) or rather exercise the option if that suits our situation better. 
Just also can’t imagine how to avoid a virus spike when all staff and students are back to Oxford for the start of the academic year. 
There is an interesting thread at the other forum - posts 3555 to 3568 etchttps://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6118636&p=89078988&page=181#post89078988

Hello everyone!

I am planning to apply to the MJur next year. Do you think the admission committee values additional law qualifications? I'm thinking in particular about a 30 ETCS certificate in transnational law I could earn. If I specify in my personal statement that I want to specialise in international law, do you think that the additional certificate could be an advantage? 
Thank you in advance! :)

Hey guys, 

Would anyone happen to know how much weightage the MLF gives to grades and ranks? My rank wasn't great (I was in the top 30%) but I have four years of relevant work experience since. Thanks!

Hi, grades are a very important factor and Oxford's decision will be based primarily on academic merits. However, if you have a strong 2:1 and can neatly explain in the personal statement why they should offer you a place, there is a decent chance that they would consider you. Moreover, the written work is of crucial importance, so be sure that you are submitting your top top piece (so that they can objectively assess your academic skills.) Also, bear in mind that given the pandemic numerous students will give up on coming to the UK, and thus the chances of getting an offer are even bigger.

Yes, agreed mostly with the above. However, I would note that we're talking about 2021 entry so I'm not so sure there will be fewer students coming to the UK.

This year, yes, which made it probably one of the least competitive application years in recent history, but with the downturn I actually expect even more to apply next year.

Good point but it’s hard to predict what will happen. The best thing prospective applicants who are still in the undergraduate can do is top have the best grades they can. 

doing speculative research doesn’t help

The best grades, yes, plus the best TOEFL / IELTS score you can get.

How important are good academic references? 

My grades plainly state that I'm in the top 3-5 percent of my class (I have a perfect score), but I won't be able to get a much more personal academic reference than that since no one at my old university seems to be able to remember me much (I graduated 8 years ago and my university, while prestigious, is the biggest in my country in terms of student enrollment). I'll be able to get great professional references.
