    it wanted the LONGEST TIME it could take for him to get to work so it was D, 9 minutes. It took him 100+80+180=360s to do the bits inbetween = 6 mins plus 3 mins at traffic lights.

    What was the answer to the one about being late or early to a job interview or something, her watch was 10 minutes fast etc. etc. That one should be ridiculously easy but I was low on time and stressed, don't remember exactly how it was phrased either. Did you answer 10 minutes early, late or on time?

    And Oxford obv. knows our results when deciding who to interview, can we really not get our scores earlier than January?

    I got on time. Considering how terribly the exam went for me, this was one of the few questions I was actually reasonably confident on... Can't wait for someone to tell me I'm wrong here as well 🙈

    Yeah, me too but afterwards I think I forgot the exact phrasing of the problem, didn't make sense with how I remembered it. But ok, maybe we're good

    It's a trivial problem but not sure that I was thinking clearly at that stage.

    Just in reply to your message about TSA results, it's really just so that people go in to their interviews confident and don't give up on the basis of knowing they have a low TSA score and thinking it's too much to get an offer. Trust me, you'll be glad if you get an interview. The place is a stomping ground for those egotistical b*stards that compete for alpha male intellectual status wherever they go.

    Oh ok thanks I guess if I receive a message from Oxford on the 30th or even before it will either be the best birthday I've had or the worst!

    Well yeah, that makes sense. I would like to know though, flying in from continental Europe with a week's notice is quite costly. Not that I wouldn't go but I don't know, if I knew I had a weak 61 or sth I'd might make different arrangements.

    I would strongly advice against opting for phone interviews if going there in person is at all possible. The entire interview experience is absolutely lovely, and getting a proper feel for what the college is like is great (until you're rejected after falling in love with it, ehe). Plus, I met someone I now consider one of my closest friends at interviews last year!

    Maybe book the tickes now, and go regardless? Just chill in London/other for a couple of days instead if you end up not getting interviewed. (If it's financially viable that is.) Was I not moving from Sweden to London in two weeks anyway I'd probably do that.
