    Sorry if this is a really stupid question! Is a teacher allowed to send written work to Oxford on your behalf? as long as it has the relevant cover sheet and information? I'm going on a trip with my school to Seville and I won't be able to send my written work on the 10th as I'm waiting on marked work to be returned. Would the university allow that? Or should I contact them?

    Wondering what to do. Finally got my supporting documents ready, but I can't get a university/college stamp for the documents because my tutor doesn't possess one and obvious OU is distance based so if I wanted something physical it would take 3 weeks. Think it's ok to submit it without it?

    I only just got my written work back from and signed off by my teacher, and rush shipping it to the UK from the states is really expensive (and it might not get there on time)--and teachers' stamps aren't really a thing here. Do you know if any of the colleges (Lincoln in particular) will accept a scan? And what should I do about the stamp?

    I'm also applying from the USA. My college sent me an email saying a PDF scan was fine so if you got a welcome email from your college you should double check that or send in an email to ask. I also had a problem with the stamp thing, but I went to my school's counseling office and they had some so I would check there. Hope this helps!

    We have replied to your PM advising that if you explain your circumstances and provide contact details for your referee, there should not be a problem - but will repeat the advice here in case other applicants have a similar issue.

    Hey guys, how did you do the tests? Are you satisfied? Were they difficult?

    I also have a question: can I underline, bold etc. words that I want to emphasize in my written works? Is that allowed?

    I hope everyone found their admissions tests ok! I found the HAT wasn't as bad as I thought and I'm a bit more optimistic about getting an interview now at least

    I think I will be rejected because of my TSA result. Many people said it wasn't that bad but for me it was.. I ruined the essay completely and the multiple choice was just too much for too less time.

    Well done to everyone who had a test today. Try not to fret over things that went wrong. Yes these tests are important but look at it another way - if you knew everything/did everything properly at this stage of your academic career, there would be little point in you going to Oxford in the first place

    I think its really hard to try understand how you really did, at least the TSA, is really unpredicatable!!
