    So does everyone get a rejection or interview invitation on the same day?
    No, it varies by subject and college.

    No. I'm not sure if it depends on the department or the college (probably the department) but there's no way of knowing when you'll be told, apart from that it'll be at least a week before the interview (interview dates are available on the oxford website).

    Did you see this?

    You can't guarantee that the other colleges will have identical systems but they do have to fit around the same departments.

    Is it easier to get in if you're an international due to the increased fees?

    Anybody else for Law at Brasenose? I need some kind of reassurance that my below-par grades may not be instant-rejection material :s

    I am feeling exactly the same way...

    No it's fine! GCSEs were not impressive really. 1A*, 7 As 2Bs and a C
    I got A*A*A* A at A level and A* in EPQ.

    I got rejected from Oxford when I applied first time, but I thought now I've got my grades I may as well give it another go, nothing to lose!

    Just sent off my written work - they had asked for a PDF file - which was too heavy since I have lots of scans, meaning the image quality was quite poor in the end. Do you think it'll be a problem? I mentioned it in the email to the college so they know it's because of mailbox issues.

    That's amazing! Wow! Nowhere near yours I'm afraid
    5 A*, 5 A and 2 B at gcse, AABB at AS, predicted A*AA (and I think an A* in the EPQ, but I'm not sure) . My gcses and AS are pretty far below their average, so im not holding out much hope, even for an interview. You look like you stand a great chance this year with those grades! Good luck!

    Honestly, you never know! Your GSCEs are strong compared to mine! And if your predicted grades meet the entry then you can't presume they won't consider you!

    What AS/A level subjects do you do?

    & thank you, best of luck to you too!!

    I took English Lit, Psychology, Art and Biology (random combo, I know), and dropped bio at A2. They're weird subjects for Law, which I'm worried about :/ If I could go back in time I'd def swap art and bio for law and classics or politics or something :/

    Basically I was in hospital during my A2s, so couldn't take them. So I did my A2 exams the year after I should have & taught from home. So I reapplied after results day in Aug. I'm on a gap year now as I've reapplied - partly to work and partly due to same health problem.

    From looking at previous stalking pages, Oxford law candidates have a really varied subject base so I wouldn't worry. I've read on most pages that many unis don't really like you picking Law for A-level anyway!

    Where else you applied?

    Sounds great!

    I've applied Kings, I've seen quite a few people with offers from there now though so I'm bit worried ha!, UCL, LSE and Uni of Birmingham (unconditional)

    Which one are you thinking if not Oxford?
