    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.

    Is this actually true; I'm really curious who told you that? I'm an American applicant with 15 AP exams (almost all 5's) and I thought that would be a strong point in my application, but if they don't care about them, that's a pretty disappointing.

    Queens said that they posted rejections yesterday and invitations today... but I still haven't heard anything! It feels like they've forgotten about me
    Ugh is this 'rejection letters are sent first' thing real? I know someone who applied to New College and she already got her rejection. And I got nothing new in my email...

    Depending on where you live ....
    I live around 2.5 hours away, so would be able to travel early in the morning on Tuesday. It might put a further stress on the interview though

    Do Oxford ever email in the weekend regarding interviews?
    Saturday isn't out of the question this particular weekend. E-mails have certainly been sent out on Saturday before - but there's no general rule. It will depend on the backlog, timing of the tutors' meeting, willingness of the admissions staff to work etc. But a possibility at least.
