In a few words
"It's definitely improving, but the diversity problem for Oxford exists far lower down, at the level of the private schools. So it's hard to imagine how much they can really do. They need to accept more people from low economic backgrounds and state schools (excluding grammar schools), which I don't think they do enough of at the moment. The actual university doesn't do enough to dispel the myths about Oxford in terms of workload and student life."
