Crimson's Oxford and Cambridge student results 2020
36 Crimson students have been admitted to Oxford or Cambridge for 2020, with some gaining additional admission to US top ranked colleges.
2020 is shaping up to be an all-time record as 36 students supported by Crimson Education have gained admission to Oxford or Cambridge’s Class of 2020. (In the UK system students may apply to either Oxford or Cambridge University - but not both.)
In a global representation,these students come from Australia, the USA, England, Ireland, New Zealand, Germany, Vietnam, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and more.
Crimson’s hard-working students were accepted into a variety of Oxford’s prestigious colleges to study or ‘read’ Law, Mathematics, Economics and Management, Politics, Philosophy and Economics, Physics, Engineering and English Languages.
Those successful students to Cambridge will read Economics, Law, Engineering, Modern and Medieval Languages, Computer Science, Psychology and Behavioral Sciences and Mathematics.
These results follow Crimson's recent success in the US early admission round, which were released in December. While most university applicants apply in the regular round to the USA (with admissions notifications released in late March), Crimson’s early round students achieved 75 offers to leading US universities including 26 offers to the Ivy League.
With regular round results to follow in a few months time, Crimson expects to break previous admission records of 65 Ivy admits per year - we are so excited for what's to come!
Some particularly outstanding student results include:
A Crimson Education scholarship student from London who was admitted to both Yale and Oxford
A Thai student admitted to both Stanford and Cambridge
A New Zealand Maori student - once again on an internal Crimson scholarship - admitted to Harvard
An Australian student, accepted to Oxford History, who will follow his brother to the prestigious university - his older brother having been supported by Crimson and admitted to Oxford in a previous year
With Crimson offices buzzing with excitement, from hearing news of student success around the world, Crimson CEO and Co-founder Jamie Beaton stated:
“Every year at Crimson we see growth in our student results, but the word growth doesn’t cover the admiration we feel for our students and the Crimson teams that support them. It is incredible to see such a huge proportion of our New Zealand, Australian, American, British, Singaporean and other students defy the odds and gain acceptance to Oxford and Cambridge - reading in such diverse fields of study,”
“The movement that our Crimson students are leading to break down global glass ceilings and pursue education at the world’s leading universities truly sets an inspiring tone for the next generation to follow.”
Crimson now has a success rate of their students being accepted to the Ivy League and Oxford or Cambridge by four times the average applicant rate. In only six years, the accumulation of Crimson student offers now tallies at 1100+ to US Top 50 colleges, 94 to Oxford or Cambridge, 219 to the Ivy League and 430+ to the UK's Top Ten Universities.
How to ask for a recommendation or reference letter
They may seem like a stressful part of the application to organise, but for top-tier universities like Harvard; with an admission rate as low as 4.6%, letters of recommendation are fundamental in supporting your application.
