    Thank you.
    I just received an email from Brasenose, a rejection, unfortunately. The email just said that it was due to competition, and didn't specify if it was my grades, LNAT or personal statement that let me down. Does 'competition' count as the 'justification of reason not to interview', or should I have been told a specific reason why my application was unsuccessful?

    Thanks
    Would you mind me asking what your grades were and what did the subject of the email state? Thank you and I'm sure there's other great unit you applied to that will see your potential

    My grades were below Oxford standards anyway, so it was always unlikely! I got 4A*, 5A, 2B at GCSE and AABB at AS, and I applied to Law at Brasenose.

    It said:
    You will be aware that Oxford receives many thousands more applications than there are places available. Unfortunately, in view of the overall competition for places this year, and after consultation with other colleges, it has been decided not to call you for interview. In the light of this decision I am sorry to have to tell you that Brasenose and the other colleges are unable to proceed further with your application.

    Thank you! I've had offers from Kent, Reading and Exeter already so I'm not too devastated ahah

      Has anyone heard from Queens yet? Or Modern Languages? I think Cambridge are in the process of giving them out (few friends got some) so I just really want to know so I can stop stressing!
      I haven't heard of any interviews for modern languages yet but I'm stressing so much too! I guess they might take a bit longer because they have to mark our MLATs and look at written work, but still! What are you applying for?

      Ahh good, I did think that they had quite a lot to look at with regards to tests and written work. I'm applying for French and Linguistics at Queen's - what about you?
