A Welsh MP looking into why many young people from Wales are put off from going to the prestigious Oxford or Cambridge Universities says it's often because they don't have confidence in themselves - or don't believe they're the right kind of person.
More than 87,000 students from Wales applied to go to university in 2012 - but only 700 applied to the two universities that many consider to be among the best in the UK, and just 135 applications across both universities were successful.
Today the universities held an event for prospective students in Swansea to encourage more people to apply.
