Oxford to take Indian school toppers

Kharagpur: Oxford University has decided to allow the toppers of ISC and CBSE exams entry to its under graduate courses from 2013, an universityofficial said.

The vice chancellor professor of Oxford, Andrew Hamilton, on Friday expressed his happiness over the decision."We want to draw the best students from India to Oxford. It has been decided that we will accept Class 12 examination results for all undergraduate courses at Oxford," said Hamilton.

Earlier, Indian students needed to appear for their A-levels, SATs or the International Baddalaureate as the criteria for getting admitted in the undergraduate courses at Oxford.

Under the new rule, the university will now make conditional offers of entrance to those students who get more than 90 percent in CBSE and ISC exams.
