Cornelia Roibu, who is now in her second year at Somerville College Oxford (pictured) reading Biochemistry, has been awarded a Scopes Exhibition from Somerville in recognition of her outstanding examination results at the end of the first year. In addition to receiving a bursary, she is entitled to wear a Scholar’s gown to future exams and other events at the University. Cornelia should be very proud of this achievement.
On a more disappointing note, both Willam Whitwell and Jamie Sims have been unsuccessful in gaining offers from Oxford to read Politics Philosophy and Economics. This is one of the most difficult courses on which to gain a place and, having both performed well in the interviews, they were unlucky to miss out.
