    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.
    No idea about last year, but I think Brasenose is generally oversubscribed most years. Yeah me neither, but it's good that they ensure that the best applicants get in even if there's no space at their desired college

    I think most of the CT parts of the TSA were ok, there was one in particular that I didn't like but the others weren't too bad. The PS parts again I didn't find too bad aside from a couple of rogue questions that I had to guess at, the timing as ever was the biggest issue for me. All the practise papers I did I managed to consistently get an above average score so I guess I just have to hope I did the same here. It's so sad though because I want everyone to do well but there's so few places available it's literally impossible for everyone to get in :/

    infinite envy four you! I got an unconditional from UEA 4 days after I submitted but they were my back up! Still waiting on Bristol, Nottingham and then Oxford. Beginning to think I've tanked the LNAT now tho...
    Ahh haha thanks! Well done on your offer! I'm sure you've done great, tbh a lot of people are still waiting on those unis. What college have you applied to?

    Hey guys, hope you're all doing alright - congratulations to those with interviews, and commiserations to those who've been desummoned.

    If there are any English applicants on here who want to chat about the ELAT, or English at Oxford, or how terrifying it is to hear absolutely nothing from any of the colleges for our subject yet, then feel free to check out the ELAT thread - everyone there is super lovely, which makes this whole waiting game a lot less stressful.

    Also I'm another Brasenose applicant, kind of bricking it when I read how many people have applied this year... (And also that there are 3 other people in the ELAT thread alone who've applied to Brasenose...ohgodohgodohgod)

    Is it possible to change college? I was reallocated to Queen's, but it doesn't appeal to me at all:-S
    Generally no, not unless you have exceptional circumstances

    Yeah, don't go to Oxford :P

    Serious answer: No, since they already read your file and probably either shorlisted or rejected you. It would waste other tutors time if they had to reevaluate you at a new college.

    I understand why you might be disappointed but lots of people are reallocated to colleges they didn't apply to and they all end up very happy with their colleges! The similarities between colleges are much greater than the differences.

    Are we likely to be asked about current affairs in an interview?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    You're probably not going to be explicitly asked about current affairs but staying engaged in your subject is such an important thing, I'd be slightly concerned if you're not regularly seeing what's going on with your subject in the world.

    You got one at Trinity too!
    I meant that to me, it sounds like you've levelled up! I've got an interview for Worcester, the one I applied for originally.

    Congrats

    New! Merton seems nice, but it has a reputation for being very work-hard (I think?)
