    In another life I would have probably done PPE, it looks so interesting Haha thanks, I actually sat it last month, I think it went OK but I can't stop panicking over it even though I can't change it now
    hahaha thats so interesting, I was actually gunna apply to read Law and almost registered for the LNAT but changed my mind to PPE because I've always been more interested in that. I have to give the TSA in 2 weeks, so fingers crossed it goes well!!

    I mean I applied to Exeter. Sorry for not specifying that. It concerned me because I'm the only one from my college who has not received an email directly from an Oxford college
    You're not the only one, I haven't either

    The college I've applied to say on their website that decisions regarding who's going to get an interview "are made on the basis of examination results and predicted grades, references and the results in the National Admissions Test for Law (or LNAT)"....does this mean that they don't look at the personal statement, or view it as less important?

    Depends on the tutor, but generally it will be of minimal importance. Generally it is only used pre-interview to identify extenuating circumstances.

    Sometimes it is used to prompt interview questions.

    How important are the PS and reference for Oxford generally? I assume they're not that important.

    I went on the UNIQ summer school and they said a good personal statement doesn't do anything but a bad personal statement will stop you getting an interview (they didn't mention the reference, so presuming that has little importance too)

    Ok. Thanks. I don't think my PS or ref are 'bad' so hopefully they won't count against me. What subject have you applied for btw?

    Maaaaan I thought I was the only one !
    I applied to read English and French. I have two tests (ELAT and MLAT) on the 4th and I have to write two essays while handling a gigantic amount of school work (not even lying, usually I don't complain but this year's is phenomenal). Oh well. I'm still happy I applied otherwise I would be stuffing my face with chocolate cake regretting it :'
    What about you ?

    Pretty much life right now tbh.

    Definitely feeling some kind of existential crisis coming along next week as I dive more into MAT past papers.
