    Exactly how I felt reading your post mate
    Hm, I expected that but...
    By the way would you mind if I ask you to express your "feeling" by words?

    P.S. Nothing either personal or offensive, just curiosity

      haha literally thought the same thing I'm so scared and this wait is too much, imagine what it would be like if you got an interview waiting to hear about offers...

      Yes, the subject line was "Invitation to Interview", and the e-mail was quite brief, telling me that I have been invited and that I can have a Skype interview since I am based overseas. Also, there was an attachment which was basically the invitation and it explained when I need to be there, accommodation, etc.

      I know it's really nosey, but I think everyone would like to see what the email looks like? Any way you could paste the content? Obviously without your details 😂 And the most of all) did it say anything in the subject?

      Haha, it just didn't really make much sense. I loved the bit where you mentioned 'loss cakes' and 'gain cakes', honestly, that was hilarious.

      No you just get the interview invite from your chosen/allocated college and once you get there they'll tell you where your second interview is

      No. They want the smartest students, pretty sure their c.$7billion endowment is enough to sustain them if *gasp* they don't take on enough international students.

      I guess it was only a 14% acceptance rate for Fine Art last year, but still, it is horrible to be rejected pre-interview!

      I can imagine - how many of you are there? At my school there are 2 for Oxford and 1 for Cambridge and this is a popular Oxbridge year!

      I think 2 for Fine Art, I know one of them was rejected but I don't know about the other. Annually my school gets around 15-20 into Oxbridge, and I think my year is the biggest Oxbridge application year so far, so maybe around 20ish people for Oxford and probably the same for Cambridge?

      15-20?! My school gets one (into either) every few years! I guess that's the downside of a small school though.
