    Hi everyone!

    This time last year, I was disappointed to not be able to find much information from applicants to Oxford on their interview experiences, so I made a video to try and help you guys out:

    This video is about my own experience - everyone has a completely different experience of interviews, so please don't worry if your reaction to interviews is different to mine!

    I hope it helps
    I really liked this video, thank you! I feel more excited than nervous about my interview now.

    Anyone getting there by car, how bad is it driving into the centre of Oxford? Is the traffic ridiculous or okay? I'm debating whether to get the park and ride in or just get dropped off outside my college

    Avoid driving into central Oxford if possible. If you're literally just being dropped off then it'd probably be alright but if you're intending to park, unless it's one of the colleges further out, it's probably a bad idea.

    I know. But I would've thought they want more girls studying CS/CSP. That's why I'm just a bit confused if you get me?
    I think you're right that they do pay particular attention to the applications of girls who just miss out on being invited to interview. But if they've done that and reckon the chance of them giving you a place is incredibly slim, it's kinder not to drag you up to Oxford for interviews. They might be able to take slightly weaker female candidates, but they can't take candidates who are much weaker.

    Don't forget that CS at Oxford has more applicants per place than almost any other course at Oxford or Cambridge. If you've been rejected you might still be very good (and perhaps would have got an interview a few years ago when there was less competition) but sadly you didn't measure up to the top applicants this year.

    It's pretty easy to get dropped off at the train station and from there most colleges are easily within walking distance 😊

    Yes! But the medics probably won't surface properly until the weekend.

    Balls. I had two interviews for Biochem and I can't say they went well. I enjoyed them and it was a great experience, I learnt a lot! But oh my they could have gone better...

    Good luck everyone staying in Oxford! If you get the chance go to Christ Church meadow, and also indulge in the ice cream/pizza bagels at D&G's (near the city centre)

    *G&D's Yeah, I agree. Try and visit the Covered Market too if you have time
