    Yup...
    Are you going to include your teacher's comments in your written works?
    I don't know whether I should translate them too...
    Yup, but I do not have a translation issue as I have to submit work in English and in French :/ go ask your teacher if he/she can translate his/her comments.

    Oh, consider yourself lucky, at least you don't have to bear up with translation issue...
    Ahahahaha, believe me, Tamara, you wouldn't ask my teachers If you were me. I'm doing everything alone, including translation of teacher's comments...
    And one more question: do I need to convert written work's mark into UK mark so that the tutors understand it? Our educational system and grading system isn't the same as the UK, but that's the issue many international applicants are facing though....

    I know the feel ! My teachers haven't been helping me at all but they agreed to give me an assignment that they will grade so that I can submit them. So far only the career advisor has been really supportive.
    Otherwise about the grades do not worry, leave it as it is.

    Guys, regarding the written work cover sheet, there's an area for a stamp. However, don't know if that's the case in the UK but our teachers do not have their own stamp. Should I get it stamped by the school principal ? :/

    Thank God that they were merciful to at least give you an assignment! -_- That's really unfair, they should be proud of us and help us. ;(
    Yeah, I'll leave the original grade, Oxford surely has a system that compares their grading system with other countries'.

    Neither do my teachers have their own stamp. You have to get it stamped by your school.
    But my school won't stamp a document that isn't in out mother tongue.... -___-

    I emailed them about the stamp problem because my teachers didn't have stamps either and they found an alternative way. You could call/email them and see what they suggest

    I've applied for philosophy and theology at Jesus college (ironically).

    Good luck to all of you guys for tomorrow- if anyone else is taking the "PHIL" let me know!

    Also, as for the written work I have to send in two essays- do we just post them to our respective colleges or is there some quicker way, such as by email?

    Best of luck to everyone with your applications
