    Same here! My college hasn't emailed me either, but I've got one from the uni and one from the medical sciences department too xD
    Maybe it is because you are applying for medicine? Or the college is just taking more time? I thought Merton would be the last, I received the acknowledgement yesterday, but there could still be colleges sending the email today or tomorrow

    I'm the same, at first I thought my college had emailed me but mine is from the Medical Sciences department too, not the college

    Is there anyone else that hasn't had an email directly from their college? I'm applying to Worcester for medicine - I've had one from the uni and one from the medical sciences department, but everyone on here is saying they've had contact from the college as well? I'm sure it's fine, but I'm just curious!

    I doubt you'll hear from a college until interview notifications go out at the end of November. Even then, there's a high chance the college you hear from won't be the one you applied to because of how the medicine interviews are organised.

    Ahh, okay, I'm relieved then! I was checking through my junk folder in case I had missed or deleted it by accident!

    Honestly I don't know why people are worrying about this! You have nothing to worry about, I'm sure they'll send it in the next few days. Good luck with your application btw!

    Is anyone else freaking out about the HAT
    Kind of....I was happy with my past papers but I'm a bit worried about must getting a ****ty question two and so I'm going over all my AS stuff. But don't know if I should go over absolutely everything, or just focus certain bits of each unit. Like any past paper I basically could have answered with collectivization or Attlee's labor......so don't know if I should I bother cramming all of post war British history.

    I think knowing fairly short period inside out mean you can apply them to any question. But a tricky question could ruin that theory!

    honestly i am really really scared that we're going to get a horrible question, like there was this question about the physical environment and i wanted to cry .
    i went over my AS stuff but breifly, i did the main bits like economics, politcal effect/ social impact/society/relationship between people and state/ development of policy/modernisation- basically stuff around it just do that and youll be fine good luck!!!!!!

    Ah did you apply for Oxford last year, or was it just a paper that you did? Also when you say 60 do you mean the TSA score conversion rather than 60%, right? I generally average around 65 TSA UMS, generally about 39/50
    I have no idea if it's good enough though.
    No I didn't apply last year, I'm a first time applicant this year. Yes it was the conversion, pretty sure! Sounds pretty good to me, good luck!!

    I'm doing the HAT too, doing Peter the Great and Westernisation and that seems to pretty much fit every question but god knows what we're going to get...write about the importance of food in a historical event lol

    I'm also doing the HAT. Going over A2 British History notes and hoping I can link something from it to any question. Good luck to you guys as well! I'm also looking at my history teacher's marking of two HAT papers I've had marked. Hopefully we all get interviews at least!

    Haha yeah, they haven't done one on 'the role played by dogs in a period of important historical change' yet, so it could be something like that.

    That's exactly why I'm unsure though - that physical environment question was from when the papers were different, and the essay questions were longer, and I guess more difficult. If you look at all the questions since they changed the format, they have been nicer.

    But I'm not totally sure if that's just chance, or because they changed the format!

    I guess as long as you can link a topic well to the question's demands it'll be ok. How did you find doing the past papers? Personally I'm worried about a really bad question that is wildly different from the past papers I felt happy with. I'll be gutted if I get rejected pre-interview tbh. I applied to Cambridge last year and missed my offer (I got AAA) so I'd be pretty gutted if Oxford didn't want to interview me
