    Is anyone using books for TSA practice? Applying for PPE at St Peters
    I'm applying for PPE as well (Balliol's College) and I'm using Critical Thinking for Students by Roy van den Brink-Budgen to prepare for the TSA - but don't think it's been that helpful.

    You won't be invited for an interview until the second half of November! But in the meantime you will probably get some sort of email confirmation (so keep checking your spam mail in case it goes there!) with instructions of how/when/where to send any written work (if necessary) :yes:

    59876079[/url]]You don't have to send scores until you have an offer- just put them in on UCAS.

    What are you applying for / are you applying for the same subject? did you get to interview?
    Ok thank you! I'm applying for E&M again, got an interview last year but didn't get an offer. Hoping to improve my TSA score and that having started at New York University for Economics and Math will help my chances.

    Nice! What was your score last time and how did you find the interview process?

    I got a 65.6 last time, which was low compared to all of the practice exams I took, so I think I can improve that. The interviews were honestly very enjoyable, they're nothing like people make them out to be in the intimidating sense. I know I messed up one logic question that they asked me, which I feel is why I didn't get in, but I fully blame that on myself.

    Does Oxford inform everyone who has applied in November if they have an interview? Or do they start handing out rejections before that?

    Rejections and interview invitations come at the same time. I got my invitation to interview on November 28th last year for Keble E&M
