    Teacher's comments in footnotes?[/QUOTE]

    Nope, I didn't include teacher's comments in footnotes. They are "below" the essay, but not at the bottom of the page.

    By the way, recently I've been surfing through the Oxford web-site and glanced the page about disabilities, then followed the links, read some information... and came up with the question - should I have informed or inform the university about my Chronic Hypothyroidism that I've already been struggling for 8 years and on the way has always been a threat to my mind?

    I'm just wondering...

    I'm not familiar with that, is it going to have any impact on you during your interview stay (if you're invited)? If so, then I would definitely get in contact with them. Otherwise, there's probably no urgent need to tell them now but if you do get an offer and it's a condition that has a significant effect on your day-to-day life or you could benefit in any way from support from the university then do declare it. There's definitely no harm in declaring it!

    I think you should. I also mentioned in my UCAS application (section for disabilities) a disability, I didn't want to lie or hide it.

    Do you send out an email, written letter, or both?
    Candidates are notified of the decision via e-mail. Those invited for interview are then asked to complete an online form confirming arrival times and (mobile) contact details.

    We would strongly endorse this advice.

    For example, any candidate declaring a special access or learning need will be contacted to ensure that adjustments required at interview are put in place.

    I know this is a bit of a sad question but it's for my own peace of mind- in the past have the emails with either an interview offer or a rejection revealed which decision it is in the subject of the email or is it ambiguous?

    For example does the subject say something vague like "Your application to X College" or does it say something explicit like "Invitation to interview"

    Thanks

    Mine said "St Hugh's College, Oxford - Invitaton to Interview" in the subject line. Don't know if this varies by college or anything though.

    I have also applied for Biochemistry (St Hilda's). You are right! It's such a relief not having to take an admissions test or sending any written work. Where else have you applied to?

    Good luck!
    That's awesome, I have also applied to Birmingham, Bath, Manchester and Warwick for biochemistry with a year in industry!

    mate you need a A*AA, and you're only predicted AAA. Are you confident that you'll get an offer
    I'm aware of the grades I need and what I have been predicted, and if Oxford do not believe I can exceed these predictions, that's their decision.

    Hi guys,
    I have to send a (maximum) 2000 word essay to Somerville (I'm applying to do English). The essay I want to send is 2050 words, do you think it matters if I'm 50 words over? The essay I've chosen is my English coursework from last year and it has the word count at the bottom (as well as my teacher's markings all over it) so I can't retype it or cut some out.

    Please help!! Thanks so much x
    Oh my word I have the exact same problem! Can anyone help us out? (I'm applying to Somerville too— for English and French though. I haven't seen a lot of other Somerville applicants so it's nice to meet you!)

    Hi! Good luck!
    Do you mind me asking what you got at GCSE and AS, as a point of comparison?
    Yeah sure I got 11 A*'s at GCSE and 5 A's at A level (1 of these was in general studies so basically 4 haha) and I'm predicted A* A* A

    How about you?
