    How likely is it that we will be called for interviews from extra colleges?
    Does that mean we could stay over another night (how many more)?
    Is that a sign that the previous colleges have rejected you or does it increase your chances of getting into oxford?
    It is fairly likely - a lot of people are asked to go to interviews at other colleges (I wasn't, but I know lots of people who were).
    You might be asked to stay another night as a result, but you won't find this out until they tell you. How many extra nights depends on how long they ask you to stay - I know some people who were asked to stay a couple of extra days last year but who ended up not being asked to go to any more interviews in the end after all, so they just got to stay and enjoy the Oxford experience a little while longer!
    Like Hermionegrangcr said - it's neither of the two. I know how tempting it is to analyse every little thing which happens during your interviews, but the whole system is so complex that last year we found no kind of pattern to who ended up getting an offer and who didn't, so try not to think about it too much

    That's good What course have you applied for? Were you given a set day you have to stay till?

    And is there plenty of opportunity to meet people then? I've heard some places put on social events for this purpose, is this the case at Mansfield, or is it kind of just walking down to the common room?

    Sorry for all the questions! Hope your interviews went well
    The JCR is available, but dinner on the first night was where most people met/started talking. There's a few things on, but not much. So lunch/dinner and the JCR are the best places to strike up first conversations

    If you apply for a joint course and the interviews for one of the two courses doesn't go that well, can you still be considered for the other course only?
    Yes

    The interview timetable at http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...view-timetable gives the maximum time you could be asked to stay.

    The official line on additional interviews is that you shouldn't read anything into whether or not you get them. I think this is quite good advice, because in the stressful moment of interviews, the temptation is always to overthink what is happening.

    hi everyone in a bit of a dilemma at the moment, so was wondering if I could have a bit of help.

    I got BBBBCCCCDDE at GCSE. My teachers think I should apply to Oxford as my GCSEs would put me in a very strong position but I was wondering if I should be aiming higher e.g. I'm thinking about Harvard and MIT.

    I'm also applying for medicine as it's the only real degree out there. Some of my friends say I need work experience, but I don't think I do because of my grades...can any clarify this?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!!

    What a troll.

    You sound like those College Confidential 'No Life' people who has higher standards than your true abilities.

    I'm not saying Stanford, Harvard, MIT is easier to get into. And it's not harder either. So stop trolling.
