    Do you know when the earliest of the earliest of invitations were sent?
    last year the largest flow was between 20-23 november. so there might be oddballs a day or two before/after.

    Some people were notified on Saturday and Sunday, but most people seem to receive their invitations during the week.

    Hi Ambre,

    I see from the interview holder's thread that you are interviewing at St Peter's but also at Christ Church.

    Was St Peter's your first choice?

    If so, to have Ch Ch 'come in for you' is quite impressive, a bit like Barcelona coming in for a player Arsenal think they have nearly signed?

    I don't know a lot about St Peter's, or about your course (or indeed the application process), so I might be wide of the mark, but it sounds like an interesting story.

    I imagine you must be a very strong applicant; to get any interview so quickly seems impressive, to have 2 interested in you is compelling, to have Ch Ch trying to gazump St P's... wow!


    ...or is this normal and am I putting 1 and 1 together and getting 38.2?

    Haha yeh, maybe it should be called something like 'Your Application to Oxford', then right at the bottom of the email after a paragraph of chat would be the invitation or the tfc (thanks for coming) comment :lol: Regardless congratulations - evidently your admissions test went well

    Hi Ivoryfall,

    We are very unlikely to send out invitations to Brasenose over a weekend because our office is usually closed. However, we are much busier at this time of year, so it is possible that the office may need to open briefly at the weekend, and therefore there is a slim chance that invitations may be sent outside of the working week. I would expect that decisions arrive during the working week 99% of the time though from every Oxford College.

    Best not to worry about when it might arrive!

    Hey guys, quick question:
    What is Oxford's view, more specifically Magdalen's view, on applicants who've resat exams?

    I did the IB and got 38 points (out of 45) with 7-6-6 at higher level - the equivalent of A*AA. So I already have my grades.But I also redid a maths exam a couple of days ago hoping to bump up my total to 40-41 points.

    Considering I've already met the minimum requirement for the Law course, will this resit be viewed badly by the admissions team? I'm only getting my results in January, so I know this retake won't be seen as a positive addition to my application, but I want to make sure it's not a deterrent either.

    I realised today one of the unis I'm applying to adamantly refuses to make offers for their Law courses to students who resit exams, A-Levels or otherwise. I tried to find info about this on Oxford's website, to no avail. Any advice/info is appreciated, thanks!

    Yes, St Peter's was my first choice. Is it impressive? I thought it was quite common!
    Haha thank you so much... there's nothing special about my application though, I haven't got lots of A*s at GCSE and my AS grades are the standard 4 As so I don't think it really means anything.
    Yes, I do think it's a very normal part of the procedure.

    I guess you're right but if Ch Ch wanted to interview me I'd be pogo'ing around the lounge!:badger:

    -

    I should add that I am not even applying to Oxford, despite having a reasonable app, as I know a few people who crashed and burned there and what I want from uni is to have a great time, get a decent degree and not be uber-stressed...

    ....but If I had applied I would have done so to Ch Ch!

    Best to you, and knock 'em out!
    LYBS (sniff)

    -

    BTW - Before I get disparaging remarks, I am fully aware that that badger is not actually pogo'ing (pogoing??), it was the nearest I could find - 2-footed pogo'ing?:badger:
