Thank you so much, seems like I've picked the right college for me then!
Ok great & none of the stereotypes about ChCh are true?
Hi I've applied to Oxford this year and I was wondering if you have met either the French or German tutor at Christ Church, do many state schoolers get in for modern languages? Thank you!
Hi! My name is Vanesa and I was invited to a Biochem interview at St Edmund Hall. Im am literally freaking out at the moment because I have seen some example interview questions. Just wanted to ask whether you get lots of help when answering those questions or not? And did you manage to answer all of them? Also, I dont do A-level Maths, do you think I would be disadvantaged? Also, do you think that the final selection will be based on the interviews? Or on the references as well (this might save me, my PS would not though). Thank you.. and I am sorry that my list of Qs turned out to be longer than I expected. O.O Thanks again
Hey! I read in one of the posts you got an A* for chemistry! firstly, congrats! Secondly, HOW!? haha. I'm struggling with chemistry AS, receiving a D after working hard, but anyway. I would just like to know if you have any tips on what to do!? Thanks!
The thing with Natural Sciences vs Biochemistry is how much of the courses are similar to eachother, I assume that you cover basically the same stuff... But I don't know, do you know if you cover things like pathology and pharmacology in the oxford biochemisty course?
Thanks for the help
All the interview stuff sounds really interesting! I don't know about you but I have found GCSE chemistry pretty boring (it may be because we're doing gcse instead of igcse) but I can't wait to do more next year. We've touched on IR spectra but we only need to know what it does very briefly. It's nice to know it's relaxed and doesn't go past A level.
It seems to me like if you do well in the interview you'll get more out of tutorials which is what Oxford is all about. So I don't think I'll be too disappointed if I don't get in say if I didn't do well in the interview because then I know that the learning style of the degree wasn't for me. I totally understand that I may be pretty smart for my school but when you consider that all of the oxford applicants are, as you said, perfect it is a lottery. I just think if I didn't apply I'd always wonder what if?...
Hey, I was reading the Oxford Applicants for 2012 entry forum and you said that you do biochemistry... I was wondering if you could tell me what the interview was like? I've got GCSEs coming up so I know I'm thinking quite far ahead but there's nothing like procrastinating instead of revising for my gcses! Also what attracted you to Biochem at Oxford instead of say Natural Sciences at Cambridge? Thanks and sorry this is out of the blue
Friday - Politics! What about you? Nervous about exams?
I'm sure you will have done! Chin up
