    Sorry, I'm a newcomer here. I am a student living outside of the EU, and I have done my interview via Skype around the end of December. I have still yet to receive a decision letter from my college, St Edmunds. I heard that every college at Oxford sends out their acceptances/rejections at once, and I've seen from a couple of posts here that there are indeed students that have received acceptances/rejections from Teddy Hall. Should I contact them to ask, or is it normal that I haven't received my letter yet?

    P.S. My course is PPE, by the way ...

    Definitely contact them, you should have heard a month ago. Don't worry they won't mind, just ask them to send you the decision by email

    Nope, it's 3 5's. One has to be Comp Gov, one has to be US or Euro, and then my choice for the third one (but for me, that will be the other of US or Euro). The idea behind 555 is that it is basically the US equivalent of the standard Oxford offer of AAA.

    Are you also a US applicant? What college did you apply to?

    Congratulations! Same offer here, too - did you find the history or the politics interview worse? I actually found myself talking about chair design in my history one,much to my surprise! (I was the girl)
