    Yep. I don't think the preparation helped a great deal. The first 15 minutes was definitely panicky and I think that stopped me from picking up the the complex grammar. Plus I did end up just guessing on some the vocab.

    By the way, which college did you apply to?
    Christ Church, you??

    No they didn't. I got AAAA at AS and was predicted 3A*s and an A which is what I actually achieved - as well as A* in EPQ. My GCSEs were not great but I think I got 23 in the LNAT which isn't really Oxford standard I don't think. Could have been that!

    Oh Christ, it makes no sense that you didn't get an interview! What were your GCSEs? What college did you apply to?

    I applied to Brasenose. I got 1A*, 6/7 As and 2 Bs or something similar.
    Which isn't great but it was one of the best in my year at school - our school isn't exactly a high performer and they say they take that into consideration, so no idea. I was gutted I didn't even get the chance for interview but you can only try again I suppose

    Awesome! Yeah, I don't think I've seen anyone else who's applying for that either. Well, all the better for less competition. What college did you reply for, if you don't mind me asking?

    BrasenoseAdm Does all colleges confirm the applicant's email for preferred interview option or reply to the applicant's email?

    Did anyone applying to New College receive an email conformation about the admissions team getting the interview form because I heard that other colleges sent out emails?

    I am an American applying to Merton , and I was wondering if anyone applying to Merton had heard about interviews by now. I mean, if I haven't, does that mean I have been rejected out of hand?

    You will always get a response whether it's rejection or interview invitation, hearing nothing means nothing. When you hear depends on subject and college and you might not hear until up to one week before interviews.

    Well on the confirmation email they sent me, it said we would not hear anything about interviews from them until 23rd November, though it could be different for you as I'm a UK applicant.

    I'm starting to freak out. Believe me, if I don't get the interview it is the end of the world 😩😂 what does the subject look like on the email if you're rejected lol? I'm always scared to open the email and I know that by looking at the subject you'll already know whether you're shortlisted or not I.e. It will say "interview invitation"

    Trinity said in their acknowledgment email that they aim to notify candidates about interviews one week before the interviews are due to occur. So I guess I'll know on December 2nd.
