    I have a question. For interviews, there's a "must stay until" and a "may be required to stay until." I'm an international student and I have an exam the day after the latter, thus I vastly prefer to leave after the must stay until mark. What are the chances I will have to stay until the very last minute? Should I buy my ticket for the last day then? Would it hurt my chances if I left after the must?

    As a reapplicant, I can tell you that it means, that St John's indeed will no longer consider this application. As for other colleges, you find out once you arrive Hope this helps
    I didnt think this was the case. Admissions info for biochemistry states that you can be made an offer from a separate college than the ones youre interviewed at.

    Hertford is a really nice college! Are you going to take Korean or Japanese in your third and fourth years? I'm intending to take Chinese in my 3/4 years alongside Japanese At St John's we have to arrive at the college for Oriental Studies on the 7th of December, so for us applying to St John's it would appear a little earlier than at Hertford. Good luck and let me know if you get an interview. Do you have any idea as to what to expect in the interview?
    I'm not entirely sure I'll take a second language depending on how I progress, but if I did it would be Japanese; I lived there for 3 months at an international language school specifically to learn, all be it 10 years ago, and I love it, but I prefer Chinese culture overall, hence my decision to major Chinese initially

    Yeah I went to the Open day at Hertford and fell in love with it; I got to meet the Korean and Japanese tutors who live there and have a virtual 1-2-1 chat with them, which was both awesome and ridiculously overwhelming!

    Yes, my email did also say that not all schools would be 100% simultaneous in their interviewing, but certainly it's all about the same time period; the EXACT dating given in my email was from the 7th until the 16th, which is a pretty big span of time, but on the Oxford interview timetable, it gives only 9th till 11th for Oriental studies. Hopefully we'll hear sooner rather than later though! :,)

    There's a video on the Oxford website showing a couple of interviews and gives you a good idea of how it operates; also, if rumours are to be believed, expect some slightly abstract questions such as ''what is the difference between a short story and a novel'', which was apparently a genuine question posed to an Oriental studies interviewee at Oxford last cycle!

    I'd say I'm in a similar position - 2 in Econ, 6 in History and 14 in Biology. Biology is my 'rest' lesson a positive of a small school is that we each have our own (albeit small) desk in sixth form!

    What kind of schools are other people from? It'd be interesting to find out!
    I am from a state school but I am an international applicant from Germany.
    If I look up my school type it says grammar school but it is not exactly like this. German school system is complicated But it is definitely state owned and you can go there if you only want - there are just quite a lot that don't make it till the end.
    My school never had even an Oxbridge applicant btw

    Congratulations to all of those with interview offers, and commiserations to those with rejections. Seems that subjects without aptitude tests are getting interview offers first, when will those with aptitude tests start hearing back?

    I assume the subjects with supporting work will be subjected to the same delay as those with aptitude tests?
