    Just got my invitation for an interview at St John's for Oriental Studies!

    I applied to Oxford for a second undergrad degree in Biological Sciences. I am not from England but the examination which I had at the end of high school (we have high school until 18) in Biology at a Higher level has a grade 5 (the best). I am currently studying sport science at one of the best universities in that subject in England and I am currently a 3rd year student. During my 2 years I had 10 modules, of which 8 is a really good first and 2 is a really good 2:1. During my 3rd year I specialised in exercise physiology and my major project is obviously is in that subject as well. So these are related to Biology as well. My reference was written by my personal tutor and all the people I showed my PS have said it is really good. However, I did not even get an interview so I am deeply disappointed.

    Anyone can suggest anything in terms of why could I have been rejected without even an interview?

    I've been reallocated from Brasenose to Univ for chemistry. Brasenose said I can expect an interview invitation from Univ but my application is with them now, does that mean I definitely have an interview?

    Has anyone heard from St John's regarding Oriental Studies interviews/rejections yet?

    His page says what offers St. John's has sent and your course isn't on that list

    How is everyone today? I've just had a mock interview scheduled but the longer I go without correspondence the more nervous I get that I'm not even going to end up getting an interview!

    I'm the same! Just trying not to think about it tbh. Thinking about it isn't going to bring forward the decision so I just focus on my job and going to the gym every day. No news is no news. It doesn't mean you've been rejected so you're ok.

    I just got a notification from ucas track and it was the most terrifying few minutes (I thought it was Oxford rejecting me--I know they send their own emails, but I'm really jumpy today) as the page loaded. Still no word from Oxford, but an offer from St Andrews!

    What course did you apply for?

    Doing surprisingly well today. Probably breaking down Tuesday evening because everybody says middle of the week for PPE..

    I applied for English, which hasn't sent out a single invitation yet, as far as I can tell. People are saying rejections come first, so I guess no news is good news?

    If that's what they said I can see no other interpretation.

    Thanks and aha you're welcome! I was in the gym on the treadmill and there wasn't much 3G on my phone, so the email took ages to load! Such a relief when I saw 'we are pleased....'

    People are saying a lot. Might all be true, might all be false.

    PPE at least didn't. The information page - merton.ox.ac.uk/admissions2015 - didn't update as well.

    I'm still waiting on St Andrews as well! Hopefully this means I'll know from them soon
