    Teddy Hall guy here! Do you know if they email out rejections as well? Interview is nine days away and waiting is starting to get stressful lol
    They reply no later than a week before interviews start so you must receive it in the next two days, if not definitely call them up

    Exactly, I would definitely call them in two days if they haven't sent anything out.

    Hi people

    For those of you worrying about interviews, the main advice I can give is rather counter-intuitive, but it is to try not to worry about them. I know exactly how nerve-wracking it feels to be waiting to hear back about an interview invitation, and then starting to think about how you can prepare, but in all honesty you'll probably be much more relaxed if you just enjoy your stay in Oxford. By all means, go over your personal statement and think about things like why you like the course, but don't try and 'revise' or prepare answers to questions which might come up, because every interview is completely different and tutors want to see how you respond to new ideas. Also, if you happen to see any stories about particularly difficult-sounding questions which people have been asked in interviews before, don't pay attention to them: such questions would only make sense in the context of the interview they were asked in, which is why they might look tricky when someone tells you about them out of context afterwards.

    I will probably post other things about interviews soon; if anyone has any particular questions, please don't hesitate to ask - I will try my best to answer, although it must be said that all interviews are unique, so the experience changes a lot from person to person.

    I am a first year student of French and Philosophy at St John's

    Sorry about asking and I'm not completly sure those are relevant but I'll have an interview at St John's and was wondering what kind of activities were organized there last year for interviewees.

    Call them and ask if it's a week or less before the interview.

    Yey another Philosophy and French person!
    I got my invitation for an interview on Friday too, but from Brasenose. How are you preparing for the interview? I'm quite scared for the French interview, I feel like I'll go in and forget how to form a sentence or something stupid
    J'ai peur aussi. I think I'll forget how to say one single sentence in French when I have my interview. My preparation is probably reading French books and practising the interview in my head, even though I don't know what they're going to ask me. And you? How are you preparing?

    Yes, Trinity applicant here! I've called twice, they're never there, so I have no idea what to do. Traveling from Spain so flights are cheaper than Shanghai, but it's a long weekend here the flights are still quite expensive! What about you?
