A 72 page booklet on economics at Oxbridge

Sometime in 2002 after I had expressed interest to my economics teacher in applying to Oxford, I was given an information booklet describing the process by him. The booklet was: A guide to Oxbridge application in economics and social sciences by Russell Tillson.

This booklet contained general background about Oxford and Cambridge, the courses available, the admissions process and general statistics about applications. It then went into depth about general economics principles, which I already knew, but might be useful if you had not taken economics at A-level, there was also a reading list.

The later parts were the most interesting. They described the interviews and the written test, with preparation for both. There was also a list of questions you might get asked which were useful for practice.
