    Congrats!! That's amazing. It's so great to see someone get an interview for Biochem (your grades are great by the way, well done!). It is daunting to think we're up against loads of individuals - but if you have an interview then you have just as much chance as anyone that's how I'd think of it. I hope I get an interview too. The thought scares me but also lights a fire within. Having a chance like that to prove your potential is wonderful! Good luck - let me know what happens
    Thank you! Which college have you applied to?

    I did the TSA and felt the same, the previous papers seemed a lot easier in my opinion and none of the methods I practised came up, so not feeling too confident about getting an interview
    I'm glad you felt the same, I was doing pretty well in the TSA past papers and now I'm not at all confident of evening getting an interview, it really wasn't great! No idea how it's going to be used either as it's the first year it's been introduced for Human Sciences (why did I take a gap year.........?!) Fingers crossed they give us the benefit of the doubt - I had to sit BMAT beforehand as well, so I just wasn't in the right mindset

    For pre-interview rejections, do you get a letter in the post or an email? I've heard you get a letter?

    I'm also applying for human sciences! Glad to have finally found other people hahaaa

    I went to the open day however they didn't really mention it, I think since this is the first year human science applicants have to sit the TSA they maybe don't know exactly how they're going to view it until they get the results in :\\\

    Whoo, a fellow human scientist! I'm really hoping they don't rely heavily on it this year, maybe just use it to see if there's a useful correlation between the applicants they would have accepted beforehand vs using TSA scores? Anyway, good luck - where are you applying?

    I received pre-interview rejection when I applied first time. 12 November, email. No letter.

    Just hoping it's not the same this year

    Yeah :/ I'm really blindly hoping that I did well and that I'm just doubting myself (there is no way that is the case haha) I guess all we can do now is hope! If I do get one then it would be nice to know sooner rather than later, getting flights over from Dubai will be tight :/

    One question to the international applicants planning to attend an interview personally in case of getting one: Are you thinking about booking a flight just in case? Because I am not really sure.. What if I am invited and then don't get a flight anymore? But otherwise when I am not invited and I have a flight...
    Well, if you are THAT sure that you are getting one then look into it. I personally think I may not get one since I screwed up on my essay in the TSA exam. But It really depends on your estimation of how likely you are to get an interview.

    not too bad some of the questions I had no idea at all and took a guess. Don't think I did too well because it was definitely not as good as my mocks which were about 65 at a push. Did the best I could so fingers crossed>

    Im sure it didn't go as bad as you think. What other universities have you applied too? I really want to go to Bath at the moment and they sent me an offer so a rejection from oxford is not the end of the world for me.

    I applied for Psychology and Philosophy, which is a bit different from English, but I got a UCAS notification in the email earlier today saying something in my application had changed. And yet when I checked Track online, there was nothing new.

    Now you've got me worried that I was sent a rejection when I was hoping it was an interview invite. My hope is that it was just a hiccup in the system, but I'm still nervous as balls. :/
    Hey, I'm applying for psychology and philosophy too! Haven't found anyone else yet that is Good luck with your application
