    It just depends on your whole application, does it not? Most successful candidates have scores of 70? Or have I made that up?
    So a score in the high 50's to mid-60's is still a strong application?

    yes, definitely!!!

    It's not your fault at all. Although I might suggest calling them at a more reasonable time?
    Ok, I will call them tomorrow in the morning from school so that the headmaster can talk to them also, maybe he can make a more convincing case than me.

    Thank you for your support!

    Very good score for that paper - did you find 2013 harder than other papers comparatively, especially with regards to timing? I certainly did. Took me much longer to do the first 25 than normal.

    Good luck!
    It was harder, and I think I may have been a bit lucky on a couple. It certainly took me a bit longer- after checking the questions I 'starred' (Ones I wan't sure on) I only had 8 mins left, but normally have 20. Hopefully the trend doesn't continue into this year, I'll be panicky enough as it is without running out of time :P

    Good luck to you too!

    In the event of absolutely just flunking the TSA tomorrow if you good predicted and quite a good standard personal statement what do you think chances of getting called to interview are ?

    I have Irish Leaving Certificate predicted:
    Irish A1
    English A2
    Maths A1
    Applied Maths A1
    Biology A1
    Chemistry A1
    French B1
    History A1

    all higher level. The more TSA questions I do the more worried I get !

    Hello all. Firstly I wish the best of luck to everyone tomorrow!!

    I was hoping someone could read my essay and give some last minute feedback on what they thought of it? I'm happy to do the same in return
    The question is 'should the supply and use of all drugs be legalised?'

    Nice essay. Good examples using the events proceeding the treaty of Versailles, however, these events seem to be used as evidence from which to make sweeping generalisations about the effects of forgiveness rather than simply exemplify them. For such a broad and subjective issue, examples should be used as examples rather than evidence.

    Hi guys, I'm a reapplicant and I took the TSA last year. Don't panic, it all works out okay!

    Secondly, for those asking about the cutoff, I applied to Catz and in their feedback they mentioned that those gaining a score of over 64 were almost always taken to interview, with those scoring between 61-64 "may have been taken to interview". I didn't revise much last year and got 63.1 or something and was taken to interview, and you're all smarter than me so don't panic!

    I go to an English school in Italy. Having read your replies, I called them and turns out they forgot to register me... The email address l I gave on my UCAS was on the school's server which has crashed several times during the last few weeks so I guess the email may have been lost. I don't know what to do now, going to Oxford was my dream... Anyway thanks for your help and advice!
    Call Oxford admissions at Oxford-UK and explain your case...maybe they'll come up with a solution or suggest some way...don't loose hope..give it a try!
