Hubs idea to help pupils from Wales into Oxbridge

A network of 12 hubs should be established across Wales to help more pupils get into Oxford and Cambridge, according to a report.

On average, nearly 450 pupils from Wales apply for places each year but were less likely to win places than those in England or Northern Ireland.

The report has been produced by former Welsh Secretary Paul Murphy.

He was made Oxbridge ambassador by the Welsh government to find out why so few pupils win places at the universities.

BBC Wales Education Correspondent Arwyn Jones reports.
