    All of our direct applicants have now been contacted with the outcome of the first selection round. For general information, we are releasing a summary breakdown of decisions for Brasenose. Note that the following data omit Medicine because, as previously advised, these applications are administered centrally by the Medicine Department - although Medical applicants have also been contacted.

    Over all other subjects applied for, 57% of applicants have been invited to attend interview either next week or the week after. Of these, 60% will be interviewed by Brasenose as the host College while 40% of interviewees have been reallocated by the Department concerned to one of 30 other Oxford Colleges. The overall interview rate of 57% is exactly the same as the most recent online figure published by the University: http://www.ox.ac.uk/about/facts-and-...istics/courses

    If you have been invited to interview, congratulations and we wish you all the best for the next stage. If you are staying at Brasenose, we have recruited 41 undergraduate student hosts who will work shifts to make you as welcome as possible and who will help get you to your interviews on time. We will try and make your stay as pleasant as we can - facilities include a well-equipped student common room, a comfortable single bedroom, and plenty of good food to enjoy free of charge.

    If you are not coming to interview we are very sorry that it is not possible to go further with your application but likewise we wish you all the best with your other options. If you would like further feedback when it is available after 6th January, please write to us at [email protected] requesting it.

    Hi,
    Is there any chance we'll be able to use the libraries within BNC for some study space? Thanks

    Hello mechanism,

    I'm afraid that the key that will be issued to you upon arrival won't give you access to the library in College. However, if you wanted to see it then one of our student hosts would certainly be able to show you around. Although our undergraduates will have mostly left the college, the library is still functioning out of term time.

    All of our rooms are study bedrooms, so you will have a desk in your own room that you can use as your study space.

    I got an interview for medicine from teddy hall and corpus Christ on Tuesday, and you know on the email it says that I will be contacted by my college shortly regarding the arrangements, I haven't gotten an email yet and I am starting to get worried 😳 Is anyone else in this position or am I worrying for no reason?
    Same, I haven't heard about arrangements from the college but I have an interview for medicine at Pembroke and LMH, hopefully soon, was also worrying that I had been sent the wrong email!

    Oh dear, I really hope this isn't the case. How are we meant to comment on a text we haven't read before?!

    I was under the illusion that we had to know the texts on our PS inside out and had a close reading exercise for the second interview...
    I wouldn't expect every interview at every college to be exactly like that, it was just an example of the sort of thing you would be asked. I didn't mean to panic you!!

    Congratulations you! And good luck in your interviews
    Haha, it's you! I wondered why someone quoted my post from a few days ago, and then I was like, "I remember that name!" How you remembered my user, I have no idea! :') Thank you though! Where did you apply to in the end?

    Congrats Course I or II ? I loved Brasenose College too, I'm hoping my second interview will be either there or at Merton!

    Sorry for that. I am sure eventually you will end up with very good offer from elsewhere. All the best.

    BTW Which course and which college did you apply?
