    Thanks.

    Experiments: what are they on? Can you provide a brief overview aside what Oxford have written?

    It appears to me that this is more biologically based.

    In your opinion, how does this type of psychology hold up against the other types such as behavioural, health, development, psychometrics and so forth?

    lets fight :eek:

    But no i'd still apply for EP if your just interested in psych... even though im a PPSer (although the first year having different subjects definately gives PPS an edge, social/developmental psychology is focused on too much).

    Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone else got an interview for E.Psychology, I got mine for Somerville college, I have to travel up there from London.
    I have to be there on Thursday 13th December 2012 but I was planning to get there the Wednesday night before, is anyone else in the same situation as me???
    Also, is it wise to buy a single train ticket or a return?? They said that I leave on Friday 14th at least noon...

    Yeah it is really scary too! I'm just going through my PS and making sure I know enough about everything I've written about and doing a couple of mock interviews with like the typical easy questions they ask you at the start

    How about you? X

    I'm going to interview at St Anne's and am so so nervous. I am actually applying for Psychology&Philosophy but I am way more freaked about the psychology interview as I can't imagine the questions they might ask. Does anyone know what kind of questions do they ask?

    I'm going up tomorrow to Wadham! Finding it so hard to prepare just because I have no idea what to expect, question-wise. Do you think we should revise knowledge of GCSE biology if we haven't continued it for A level?

    Hi guys, this is kind of a silly but I was wondering if anyone on here who has an offer for EP could message me a copy of the reading list they were sent post-offer? I can't find mine anywhere and if I remember correctly it was slightly different to the one available on their website :/ I'm stressing D: xx
