    I got wreCked in my interview...
    Sorry to hear that; I'm sure it didn't go as bad as you think (Oxford interviews are REALLY hard!!). What kinda things did they ask? Also do you know how many interviews you have? You can always do better in the other ones, of course

    You don't have to arrive at the college in the clothes that you want to wear for interviews - you'll have lots of time to settle in first, don't worry! Also, you don't need to worry too much about what you wear even when you are getting ready for interviews

    When you arrive at the college, the first thing they will probably do is take you to your room, so you'll definitely be able to get changed. You probably won't have any interviews straight after arriving, anyway

    No problem! It's completely normal to be stressing out - most people do. I know it's easy for me to say this, but the best thing you can do is to try and NOT panic, because then you'll be much calmer in your interviews. It is totally expected that you will be nervous though, so don't worry Good luck!

    Perhaps you don't, I just wasn't sure! Was yours from Lincoln? The email asked me to fill out a survey about when I would need accommodation and I did so. I'm probably worrying unnecessarily but I just expected to get some kind of confirmation?
    No, St Hugh's. I filled out an online form as well and received no confirmation but I'm not worrying about it at all, because I wasn't expecting to receive confirmation

    Any idea from past experience if one would be likely to have an interview on the day they arrive? I have been asked to be at college by 12, an then lunch till 13:15 and then a pre-interview meeting.

    It was a very academic interview. PPE. Don't think I can say more!
    OMG were there any personal questions? (Why PPE? etc.) Unseen stimulus?

    Well done! Hope you're happy with how you did!

    Probably not - I was asked to come a day earlier than originally planned for my interviews last year (I had to come up on the 9th instead of the original 10th), but I still didn't have any interviews until the 10th. If the college is pressed for time, they might schedule an interview for you for the afternoon, but I don't know of any cases where people have had interviews within a couple of hours of arriving... (St John's student here )
