    I don't know why they have them at the same college, seems kind of counter-productive if they get interviewed on the same thing by the same people. Maybe they have a general interview and a subject interview? Arts subjects sometimes do those, not too sure about science subjects though.

    And yeah I dunno why you have them both on the same day, sounds like too much work to me lol
    You'll usually be interviewed by different people at each one, and on different topics. It's actually very useful, the more interviews you have the better a picture they can build up and they can see how consistent you are etc, and it also gives you a chance to recover from a nervous first interview.

    Hey, The Spartan I am still waiting for an email from Keble for Computer Science too. I saw they have updated their website a few minutes ago saying "Interview decision letters have been posted for the following subjects. Computer Science; Mathematics & Computer Science; Archaeology & Anthropology - 1st December "What do you think that means? They have sent them to our emails or by post? Because I have been checking my email and have not received anything yet.

    Haven't heard anything for engineering, and I don't think many have at all. Our interviews are among the last if I'm not mistaken.

    college is St Hilda's BTW.

    Keble send emails to international applicants, but uk applicants recieve a letter. So if it was posted today you'll probably recieve it either tomorrow or Thursday

    HEY!

    By some miracle, I managed to get an offer for interview today, for medicine!!! I've never been so shocked in my entire life

    Sorry if this question's been asked before (but there are 442 pages on here, obvs I skim read) but does anyone know how Oxford are on facial piercings at interviews? I know it's really not that important of a question, and there's a load of more important things to be worrying about, but I feel like sooner I know where they stand on this, the better!

    (By facial piercing, I mean a small nose stud - not sure why I didn't just call it that earlier...)

    Hi I'm doing arch and anth, and what it means is they sent them today, so with first class postage they will most likely arrive tomorrow or the day after. I've been waiting so long to find out and now I don't want to know!

    Hey well done! I've got a law interview for Christ Church and I'm just wondering how you're going to prepare for the interview? I'm finding it a bit tricky because obviously we don't require legal knowledge so is revising my PS (and the legal points in that), keeping up to date with current affairs and thinking about answers for the basic questions like 'why law' enough? Sorry for the essay feel free to ignore if you're as clueless as me hahaha
    Hi, I've got an interview at Keble for law, and although I'm feeling quite confident with the law based questions, I'm actually struggling the most with the 'why law', 'why Oxford' etc questions, so if you could possibly help me with those that would be great. I think that it sounds like you're doing everything you need to, perhaps if you've read any law books make sure that you've got a few key points from them that you can remember and use in your interview, but think that's it

    Congratulations, I've got one too for St Hugh's and LMH
    I don't think they particularly care whether or not you have a nose stud, 99% certain they care more about your ability as a doctor/academic than your decision to pierce your nose
