    I knew I'd get an interview since they interview most applicants but in terms of good chance? Probably not haha, most people have same or better stats than me (such as you) and interviews are tough.. And I'm same as you, physical is probably hardest branch for me.

    Yeah I do chem, maths and bio, I am slightly worried about not having physics but there's a reason why it's not a requirement, right? I know loads of people who've applied for chemistry and only one who has gotten an interview so far. They'll get round to us eventually!

    Please don't get too excited about tomorrow... I'm not sure what these rumours about interviews being sent out tomorrow are based on but needless to say, many subjects and colleges will not be sending out interviews tomorrow so if you do not get an email, please do not panic. It just hasn't been sent yet.

    Anybody claiming to know when interviews are being sent out is probably spreading inaccurate information.

    Um, one of the admission tutors say that they finished their shortlisting by monday. he is also the person who sets the interview threshold for his subject and requires tutors who admit applicants under that threshold to explain their reasoning to him and for him to agree to such arrangements. he has a profile on tsr where he answer question.

    Could you give me a quote where they say all applicants should expect a notification tomorrow? I'd be extremely surprised if that were the case (I don't know how a single admissions tutor would know that, anyway, since interviews are sent out by colleges and departments, not via a centralised body).

    Haha. No offence but I'm calling bull**** on this. How could medicine admission tutors (as an example) possibly start sending out interviews without having our BMAT results? We get our BMAT results on Wednesday, so that's a no for medicine.

    Like Plagiocase said, it's highly unlikely that all interviews will be sent out tomorrow. So just a word of warning guys, take all these rumours from people who have "spoken to" admissions tutors with a truckload of salt :lol:

    How could any admissions tutor know about the day for every single course?? What subject is he even a tutor for (so people could know which courses to expect a notice from)?

    I'm really tired, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I think foreignstudent32 is talking specifically about one subject at a particular college?

    I never said all subjects I replied to someone who was taking MAT and that is the the admission tutor said that he asked all colleges if possible shortlist by monday.

    You just assumed blindly that it was for all subjects without any context.

    "Probably Monday. I have heard that some department heads asked their tutors to finish shortlisting by Monday." - what I wrote a few post back.

    Note the word "some"

    Yep, we won't know when exactly any particular interview will be sent out, but there are colleges like Merton saying in their welcome email "you won't hear from us until the 23rd", and other sources of hearsay that point to today as the beginning of the flood of interview offers and rejections alike for the subjects and colleges that have yet to make their moves.

    Who gets the interview from the St. Hugh College? I apply for PPE, and the college says that 'We regret that it is not always possible to give more than seven days’ notice to candidates who are shortlisted to attend for interview'. I'm just in a bit of panic...

    This wasn't specifically aimed at you, it was a general rant at all the ridiculous speculation I've seen lately on here. Earlier I saw a guy saying that all interviews would be sent out within the next 24 hours and if you hadn't got one, you could expect to be rejected. I just happened to quote you into my rant

    I'm waiting for a reply from Hugh's too, because I was told by Balliol that I'd been reallocated there for interview. I think they'll send the majority of their invites this week - when they talk about late invites, they're probably referring to medics (who, correct me if I'm wrong, won't start receiving invites until the 2nd December or something?) You can always phone admissions if you haven't heard by the end of this week
    What times does admissions open? 8 or 8:30 or 9?
