  2. Re: Best way to make up for lack of mathematics at Oxford undergrad?

    I applied and got through to the data exercise (but no further) of a few of these back in 2015 / 2016 - as

    Re: regarding GRE score

    That set of scores seems absolutely fine to me (providing your TOEFL passes the relevant thresholds too) - as a native English speaker I only got 165 on the verbal component and it didn't do me any...
