    Rejection from Catz, CompSci.
    I feel like I'm in the same boat as you! I did awful in the MAT and honestly it'd just be a relief to get that email so I can finally move on

    No I haven't got the dates yet. From the email I understand we don't do the survey until they tell us the day??
    I haven't got my timetable yet, but the email says we need to complete the survey by Wednesday. I am so confused now... How about you?

    Haha, yes, it was SUCH a relief! I had no expectations as I can't afford Oxford anyway.
    I had my LAMDA exam today and it went great so the email really didn't affect me that much. My MAT was also terrible and I believe that's what got me the rejection.

    Honestly though I think that it's amazing that you have enough self-confidence to take this in your stride and share it with everyone on here I always think that applying to unis like Oxbridge is a bit like a lottery... everyone is so great that there will be tons of awesome people that don't made it... and tons of not so awesome ones that do

    Best of luck with everything else! And I'm so happy that your LAMDA exam went well

    Did you get an email also?
    No I didn't. Apparently Oxford haven't accepted email yet as a form of communication-typical.

    Anyone heard back from Balliol? I applied for Biomed and, funnily enough, the only other person at my school also applying for Biomed chose Balliol - she hasn't heard anything either...

    For the people with interview offers - how long are you staying in Oxford? What are you bringing?

    It's really not a myth - the admissions officer came into school and told me himself. He actually said that Ox look more at GCSEs and Cam look more at AS results. I've also heard that from admissions tutors at Wadham, Brasenose and outreach staff. Sometimes it's best to believe what you hear!

    Anyone heard anything for Theology yet?

    Also what are you bringing to interview? Does anyone know what 'events' happen during the interview process or what I should expect?

    Good luck to everyone!

    I know that some Comp Sci applicants at Oriel have heard, same with some for St Catz. But I haven't heard anything back from Univ and I don't think Worcester have started either.

    It's driving me crazy

    I'm staying for the 8th til the 11th...
    In the same boat as you in regards to what to bring - I'm not sure... All the usual stuff, clothes, money etc but do we have access to say, the gym or tennis courts?
    Feel underprepared 😂

    If you get pooled to a different college, does anyone know if that happens before of after interview? In other words will my interview definitely be at the college i applied for, and then change later, or will my invite come from another college?

    What college are you staying at? I'm coming on the exact same dates! I'm wondering about schoolwork too, I don't quite know how long exactly I'll have to study especially since I don't want to shut myself off but I do still have to catch up on some schoolwork...

    And my college hasn't given me any other information than the interview dates

    Once you've been reallocated to another college, your info should all be coming from them (as if you'd applied there in the first place) - you'll be told before interview if you've been reallocated to somewhere else. And even if you're staying at the college you originally applied to, it's normal to have an interview at another college too

    Brasenose, which (based on the admittedly small sample size of TSR) seems to be hopelessly oversubscribed this year as usual :'
    Same! Oh I totally agree. Arghh makes me nervous haha.

    Have you received an interview?

    Will we have access to the library in college and such? I'd love to be nosey and snoop around the college. Are we restricted to our rooms, JCR and the hall or can we have a nose around? Bit of a strange question but I don't want to intrude on current students as some will probably stay to help out during interview process (I think?).
