Rebecca Treson, a sixth-former at St Peter’s School, was one of 360 people who took part, and teamed up with a student from Peterhouse, attending lectures and social events.

The 16-year-old, who wants to study English at university, said: “It has been really fun and ­inspirational.”

The scheme, organised by the students’ union, encourages applicants with a strong academic record who go to schools where few go to study at Cambridge or Oxford.
