    Do you think that leaving Oxford at 1 o'clock would be a problem considering I must stay until 10 and maybe later that day? I think on Wednesday they send the PPE applicants to other colleges, if needed and since I mentioned it on the reply form they could plan accordingly. Leaving later isnt really an option because I already arrive at home at midnight that day and have a big test on thursday morning.
    They should let you know when you're allowed to leave. If you've indicated that you really would rather leave before 1PM then I'm sure they will attempt to accommodate that but there is always a chance that a later interview will be required and you definitely should not leave until you've been told that you can. I understand the problem that you've got but I'm guessing that your Oxford interview is more important than your test on Thursday morning and unless it's an external exam, your school ought to be able to be flexible in an emergency.

    Well I know they should let me know but all Merton said was that I was needed until 10 am and maybe later - whatever that means.

    Yes, on the website it says all applicants must be there until 10 but possibly later - which means that most people will probably be able to leave at 10 but you have to check first. There should be a noticeboard in the JCR or somewhere else (they will show you) where interview updates are being posted. For instance, for my course, it said we had to be available until 6PM but a notice went up at lunchtime saying that everyone apart from a few people could go home at 2PM.

    I will check it there and if they would really need me I'd probably find a way but I can't see the future either and without a more accurate time given I planned in a way that would allow a few extra hours without forcing me into other unpleasant situations like coming home in the middle of the night or missing my flight.

    I have an interview at Lincoln and answered the form regarding accommodation, but there was nothing about submitting a photo and everyone else seems to have had to do this, has anyone else who applied to Lincoln had another email or was that it??

    Oh, it's a flight... well as I say, if you've informed them that you need to leave at 1 and they've acknowledged this then hopefully they will do that.

      Has anyone got any responses for languages yet?? Or anything from Christ Church?/
      I heard back on Friday but I think it depends on the college as to when they will respond, there's still time!

      Nah, didn't get a confirmation form and I don't really expect one either.

      I'm applying from Spain, but I'm Greek, and I actually used to live outside NYC, in Somers! Do you live anywhere nearby? I've applied for PPE at Trinity, where have you applied? Best of luck on your application!
      Oh, Somers! That's in Westchester County. My father works in White Plains, Westchester County. We live instead in nearby Fairfield County, Connecticut. I've applied to study Physics at Merton College. Best of luck to you, too!

      Yeah I was planning on brushing over books in my PS just to know the main ideas brought up in them. Then maybe ask my teachers if they've got any advice. Other than that not really sure. I wear a suit at my school as part of uniform so I'll probably wear a suit for my interview aha.
      Basically same regarding the prep. Hm my school uniform is an actual uniform of like skirt and jumper so I've no ideal! Probably something smart yet comfortable considering we're most likely sitting on sofas

      Same with me, I haven't been asked to send a photo. Which subject/when have you been asked to go?

        Master and Margarita!! That's another good one, but it's really long
        Yeah it does! The vocab is similar to Spanish but it sounds more nasal - a lot like French... so I think it's the perfect combination!
        I've heard that it's a good book. Oh that's really interesting! Good luck with everything!
