    For the PPE-ists:

    College: Brasenose (SO popular this year lol)
    How was the TSA?: Alright, some bits I think I've definitely got correct and others I had to guess due to time restrictions. Thought it was probably slightly harder than past years though overall. Essay went about as well as it could have.
    Do you think you're getting an interview?: Hard to say since seemingly amazing applicants get turned down each year, just got to wait and hope.

    I think last year the interview offers came around the 25th November, so we should hopefully hear back by next Wednesday(ish)!

    People have been receiving interview invitations for Law (their admission test is taken before the 15th of October if I'm not wrong) and for subjects that don't require any written work or tests (such as biochemistry and biology). So I take it we must be more patient ! I'm applying for English and French, you ?
    Yeah that sounds about right, but nevertheless the wait is terrible, especially when you know people with interviews already :/ but yeah, I'm applying for Spanish and Beginners' Italian which college did you apply to?

    Ikr, a lot of people will probably be reallocated.

    PPE

    College: Merton
    TSA: To be honest I never scored higher than 66 in practice and it went just like always. I did the CT first and from experience I can say that I can safely hope I got a big share of them right. Then PS and as always I didnt finish those. But seeing that this year a lot didnt finish I think it might be a good sign that I found it pretty doable. Essay - wrote too pretty. Rushed to finish but was kinda ok.
    Interview: I dont know at all. German grades are solid (right in the middle if the required range). But other than that...I hope and hope. I'll just say 30% chance.

    Ah where to? Congrats btw I hope I get into Brasenose because I have a friend there, but I liked all of the colleges I visited in different ways so I'd be happy to get an offer from anywhere really - my first choice college would just be the icing on the cake!

    Same thing happened to me on the essay - time crept up and so the conclusion was a bit of rushed mess but not too bad. During practices I tried the technique of doing CT first and it always made me slower - even though I was far better at CT than problem solving (25/25 on almost every paper, feeling about the same this time). Good luck!

    It seems a vast amount of people have been reallocated this year! Was it the same last year? I didn't even know it was a thing to be reallocated pre-interview until now. It does make sense though - at least the system is fair.

    A lot of people have been. Tell us your college and course so we can tell you if people in similar situations to you have been called for interview.

    Received my rejection to study chemistry today. It was almost entirely down to my AAA predictions which I felt were very unfair. Anyway, I'll move on and try to get an offer from Imperial. Good luck to everyone else.

    Have any CAAH applicants heard back from Oxford yet? I'm waiting to hear from Regent's Park and they said that they're hoping to send out their interview invitations by mid-next week.
