    Who are the Oxbridge Mind Natural Sciences tutors?
    Our Cambridge Natural Sciences teachers are all former or current Cambridge Natural Sciences students who excelled in their Natural Sciences applications and received an NSAA score in the top 10%. Our Cambridge Natural Sciences tutors have undergone extensive background checks to ensure that they are knowledgeable, responsible, and courteous. To ensure a safe and welcoming learning environment, all tutors are DBS checked, and all lessons and tutorials are recorded. Your Natural Sciences tutor will form a bond with you during the course, serving as a teacher, facilitator, and friend!
    What is unique about our Oxbridge Mind Cambridge Natural Sciences Tutoring?

    Why is it important to get Cambridge Natural Sciences application help?
    We realize how difficult it is to apply to Oxford or Cambridge programs, particularly in Natural Sciences. Because the NSAA admissions test and Cambridge Natural Sciences interview appear to be difficult at first, you may find it difficult to balance your school exams with your Cambridge Natural Sciences application. Oxbridge Mind will help you complete your Cambridge Natural Sciences application correctly the first time, giving you more time to focus on other elements of your life (like examinations!).
    Is the Cambridge Natural Sciences Tuition online or face-to-face?

To make learning more engaging and productive, we've prepared some fantastic presentations and will share our screen with you during the session. We can work around your schedule and educate you from the comfort of your own home at a time that is most suitable for you with our flexible online Natural Sciences tuition. Lessons and tutorials are recorded so you may go back and review them if you forget something.
    How many hours of Cambridge Natural Sciences Tuition do you provide?
    It's entirely up to you! Despite the fact that there is no time limit on our service, It's entirely up to you! Although our Cambridge Natural Sciences course has no time limit, we recommend that you commit 20 to 40 hours to it. We're flexible, and we want to make the NSAA and Cambridge interview Natural Sciences as easy as possible for you, so you can get the Cambridge offer of your dreams by giving you access to the greatest platform and award-winning tools available. We make sure you have access to a variety of materials, such as tutorials, NSAA past papers, Natural Sciences personal statements, and more!
    What materials do Cambridge Natural Sciences Tutors use?
    Our Cambridge Natural Sciences Tutors provide their students with a wide range of Natural Sciences NSAA resources. Based on years of research and examiner knowledge, we've created a Natural Sciences course, particularly for you. Our tutors will cover every aspect of the 1-1 Cambridge Natural Sciences programme. While teaching Natural Sciences might be hit-or-miss, we make certain that our resources and Natural Sciences tutors are tailored to your individual need.

    We've taught over 50,000 students and provided over 200,000 hours of one-on-one tutoring through Oxbridge Mind and Study Mind. We have a long history of achievement and student happiness, which has earned us the title of TrustPilot's Top 5 Tutors in the UK. Our success rate at Oxbridge is more than double the national average in the United Kingdom.
    How long is the 1-1 Cambridge Natural Sciences programme?
    You can use your one-on-one tutoring hours for any topic over the course of three years, including your Natural Sciences Application and A-levels (all subjects). The majority of students will begin our programme between March and August 2022 for 2023 entrance, however, we have many students who begin earlier or later! We can modify the programme's framework to meet your needs. Early on, we'll customise plan and timeframe for you.
    What happens if I have any issues, concerns or questions?
    With your Natural Sciences mentors and the Oxbridge Mind support team, you'll have your own WhatsApp group. You are free to ask questions there at any time, for example, to schedule lessons or for revision guidance. Our support team is always available, and we are pleased to speak with you over the phone if you prefer.
    Which package is the most popular?
    The platinum package is our most popular, and it leads to the most improvement in your Natural Sciences interview performance and overall application results. With over 70 hours of one-on-one mentorship, you'll get the greatest possible help to increase your chances of success. Our other packages are also highly effective, but we have less time to dig in-depth into topics or areas of weakness than we do with the Platinum Package because we have fewer hours of tuition.
    How does enrolment and payment work?
    You will meet with one of our Oxbridge professionals to discuss your application and assess your suitability when you apply for the Natural Sciences programme. If you are accepted into the programme, you can pay either in full or in 12 monthly installments. We offer a variety of payment options that can be explored with a member of our team.
