    Thanks, and as for today, it's nearly 10:00pm for me on the east coast of North America (I'm
    currently in Toronto but only visiting over thanksgiving break from Washington DC), so I'll likely come when I'm asleep. Best of luck in E&M!
    And I now I shouldn't be worried, I just am—but eh could be worse!
    Ah, in that case it should probably come for you between sleeping and midday tomorrow, if it does come tomorrow. Thanks, best of luck to you for biological sciences too, and don't worry: if we are actually good enough to get in, we'll get a positive response. So we just have to have patience.

    Oh right we applied to completely different ones! I did Manchester, Bristol, Exeter and UEA. Where are you from? Because I live in London so I didn't want to apply to like goldsmiths, UCL, kcl or Soas, which is annoying because I really liked all their courses.
    Hi, I'm an Arch and Anther too, can I join in? I also applied to Exeter and UEA (got offers from both!) and I've got an offer from SOAS too, which will be my second choice if no Oxford. I still haven't heard anything, but I'm applying to St. John's rather than Keble. Good luck.

    hi! congrats on your interview, thats amazing! May I ask you GCSE and AS grades and A-level subjects and predictions? Waiting on EP at New :-)
    Actually, I'm an American applicant so my scores would be quite different. I got a 35 out of 36 on the ACT, which I think is similar in use to GCSE's? And 5 out of 5 on Calculus AB, US History, & English Language and Composition; 4 for Physics and Biology; a 3 on US Government and 2 on Macroeconomics for AP tests, which I suppose are similar to your A-levels.

    From what I've heard though, Oxford seems to be more interested in students intensely interested in learning their degree subjects, who meet a minimum academic requirement, but that's not the MOST important. So, chillax, if you've met those entry requirements and have a good personal statement, you're probably golden.

    The US is the ssame as well, they don't care about your AP scores. They ask you to self report them. Us uni care about your passion but it doesnt have to be passion in academics, but also passion is other activties.

    While in UK, they only care about your passion in academics - which creates a stronger academic class but less diverse class.

    No (actually I don't know, not a mod) I was just wondering. Wow accounts do get banned easily on this site.

    Hahaha thank you! I've gotten unconditional offers from King's and St Andrews, so I'll be alright. I'm American and applying to way too many schools in the states as it is, so it's actually kind of good to have one taken off the table (it was totally a pipe dream anyway, sort of a "hey this would be kinda cool if it happened but if not nbd". And hey, there's always study abroad and grad school!
    That right there is a good positive attitude! Congratulations on your unconditionals, sounds like you're going to be absolutely fine
