    They say it's casual but then again it'll feels as though they'd be judging us based on our clothes, too!

    I'd definitely wear something formal-casual, at least a presentable shirt and maybe a jacket. I don't really want to take any chances wearing jeans and a T-shirt, no matter how much they say 'wear what you want'.
    They are not going to judge you based on your clothes. Or else everyone will be going in tuxedos.

    Allocation is assigned randomly, I think by the time of submission or something. When each college usually considers x applicants per year, all the applicants after number x gets moved to other colleges. Allocation is not based on how good you are because you are allocated before they read your file.
    How can they know to re-allocate you for interview if they don't look at your file?

    Amazing for getting in to do what you did first time though, congrats! Durham and York have already offered unconditional places (which is a huge relief - Durham and Oxford are my joint-first-choice unis) and then Oxford and UCL are taking their sweet time getting back to me :') how about you?

    They reallocate you before looking in some cases, I think. Your "new" college decides whether to invite you.

    Well done! I've got unconditionals from Nottingham and Bristol, interview at Ox and waiting on UEA and Durham. UEA is probably my second choice although Durham looks very nice!

    Quite true - but still it does seem more reasonable to present yourself well than to not.

    Past threads seem to suggest that anyone who had to take the TSA can probably expect an invite in the latter-half of next week (PPE applicant here). How did you think your TSA went? ( nhabib3 )
