    I haven't got a second email from my college (Merton) as well. I hope it is no reasons to be concerned.. Maybe some colleges are just a bit later than the others..

    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.
    Yeah I have just got CC's email and saw this today

    Anyway thank you very much XD

    I haven't got a second email from New College, and looking on this thread, everyone has got two emails from Oxford... Should I be concerned ...
    I haven't gotten one from New College yet, I've only received one from the main uni but it said we would hear more before the end of october so I'm hoping we get it soon

    Thanks for the quick reply. However, do you reckon it should be passport photo size?
    Be careful what you send- you could be living with it for a long time! at least some of the colleges use that photo for your Bod card (student ID)!

    As unlikely as it is, that would actually be an honor for me

    I am a PPE applicant. So I would like to ask you some questions if you are okay with it (hope these aren't too many)
    Which college are you at? Is it where you originally applied? What was your TSA score and do you think the TSA score is important? I feel like my TSA will go horrible.. How did you prepare?



    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I study at Oriel, but applied to Wadham. I think my TSA overall score was aroun 68 - the TSA score is very important! If you do well in it, not only will you get an interview but you will be in with a good shot for an offer!

    I prepared by reading a few books 'Think you can think?', doing practice papers under timed conditions and generally doing as many questions as I possibly could.

    Hello, I'm applying for PPE at Exeter College. I'm interested in what you discussed in your interviews/how many interviews you had. Also would you be able to tell us what question you answered in Paper 2 of the TSA and how your approached it? Thank you very much!
    I answered the question on trade (should we always trade with countries with repressive regimes or something similar). I'm not entirely sure what I actually wrote, possibly about how morality should come before financial gain. I always approached the essays the same way:
    Intro
    Point
    Point
    Address counterpoints
    Conclusion.

    I had one Politics interview and a joint Philosophy and Economics interview. The politics one was tailored towards my personal statement and a passage I had read beforehand on anarchy. The Philosophy component was based on a piece by Hume, as well as discussing what makes a good argument. My Economics interview talked about a company that made ice-cream and we went through different scenarios and I was asked how one would set prices.

    I believe all colleges have different approaches to the interview so try get a few different opinions!

    Thanks for your answer I really hope that my TSA score will be good, the last times I scored between 66 and 71 in the past papers but they calculate the score a little differently I heard.. Is it right that they take the difficulty of the questions into account?
    Did you practise a lot for the essay? I don't know if it will really matter, I heard that they sometimes don't even look at it?
