    How can the person you quoted be applying to both Cam and Ox?
    They aren't. If you read it, they said 'maybe I should have applied to Cam', also, the first part of their post was in reference to their friend.

    If you get an offer it will at be the one you interviewed. However, allocation for interview does not equate to an offer.
    Not necessarily. Candidates can get an open offer (where the college would be decided at a later date). Or, can be pooled such that other colleges can look at the overall application then decide to make that person an offer, instead of the college where they initially interviewed at.

    That's just wrong. You can get an offer from any college that does your course, even if they never interviewed you. You can even get an offer that's open, wherein you won't know what college you are going to till August.

    Does anybody know how English interviews will go? Like will they want in-depth discussions of books I mentioned in my personal statement? Are there any books they will expect me to have read? I'm scared they might want a discussion of a book "I should have read" :/

    I received an email saying that I'm shortlisted and am very likely going to be invited for interview (Graduate Medicine).
    How confident can I be that I will get the interview? I don't know whether I should organise travel arrangements already ;D

    I just got an interview for physics D
    It only said that our 'accomodation and meals would be provided free-of-charge by Trinity College'- but not a separate letter or something like that

    I applied to Worcester for Maths and haven't heard anything so phoned this morning. Letters (not emails) were posted yesterday and some today so expect to hear in the next day or so if you're an Worcester applicant. Good Luck
    Is that for any subject?
    I look forward to possibly meeting you, I am also applying to Worcester, however instead for Engineering Science

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're an international applicant, correct? That's probably why we've been kept for the end.

    A family friend of mine has also applied for eng sci (at Balliol), she hasn't heard anything yet either.

    I'm not international and I haven't received any information about my Engineering Science application as of yet!

    I'm planning to wear a suit (without a tie) and a jumper and then will probably change after interviews

    Hey!

    Is it possible to have my admissions test (the ELAT) under special consideration as I wasn't taught any of the skills tested in the paper- close reading or analyzing literature or any literary devices beyond metaphors and similes- in my school.
    The syllabus in my country doesn't include it.

    I had to teach myself under a very short period, and I don't think my test went that badly considering this fact. Is there any possibilities that the tutors would be willing to take this into account perhaps if I told them?

    Somebody please, please reply quickly.
