    Thanks, good luck to you too (and may the odds be ever in our favor ). PPE, you?

    See? You're already one step above us, mate.

    I'm in denial right now, pretending that November 4th is months away or, even better, that we'll just skip it this year...

    Exactly in the same situation. Applied for PPE at Oriel. What college did you apply? Do you know if the TSA is used to decide who to interview, or only when making offers?

    Christ Church for me. I'm afraid it is a strong factor taken into consideration for interview shortlisting.

    I've also applied to UCL, KCL and Warwick. I don't have a fifth choice.
    I've been practicing my close reading skills, reviewing literary genres and grammar for both languages. For the ELAT (English), looking at past papers online but it's really frustrating as some texts are missing due to copyright...I'm trying to build up confidence by working with the little I've got.
    How about your other choices and the TSA ?

    I've applied to St Andrews, Warwick, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Luckily, we've got a fair amount of practice tests to look at. However, it's the second part (essay part) of the TSA that worries me the most as I have no way whatsoever to understand if I'm good enough.

    Wow congrats! Do you mind me asking what you got at GCSE and AS level?
    And by below-par I mean: 4A*, 6A and 2B at GCSE, and AABB at AS (predicted A*AA) :-(

        Generally, they send out invitations from late November to early December. The exact dates vary from college to college and course to course. I think invitations went out from the 20th last year!

        Yup, as you have alredy been told, they will tell us in the last weeks of november. You can search online the dates for your course's interview, and you'll know that they will notify you at least 1 week in advance.
