    It actually means another college is interested in you
    Thank you! That's so reassuring so does it have anything to do with st Hugh's and does it still mean I have just as good a chance of getting an offer from st Hugh's? (Sorry for all the questions)

    So I had only one interview per subject...the other girl for the same subject but single honours got 5...what's going on 😩
    Don't worry about it - you won't be able to read anything into it. I only had one interview per subject last year and was sent home 2 days early whilst literally everyone else for my subjects was still up at Oxford, but in the end I got an offer and so did many of the others who had been given many more interviews than I had. I know it's really hard, but you just have avoid trying to work out what it 'means', if you like

    I had an interview at a different college scheduled for Friday but Thursday evening there was a notice saying I could leave. How should I interpret that? Is that typical?

    For those of you who've had a Skype interview, did you experience any technical issues? Do you have any tips? They would be much appreciated.

    I have a Skype interview for EP on Monday and I'm worried about connectivity issues and stuff like that.
    So I had a skype interview last year and halfway through, it cut out and we couldn't hear each other... So they called me on my phone and rearranged a later time for which we could have a phone/skype interview (talk on phone, view through skype)... and that went well. Basically they want to do anything so that you can have your interview, don't be worried that if something goes wrong then they'll immediately stop bothering with you!

    Interviews over. Better than last year I think (enjoyed the process a lot more), but it's still difficult to judge whether or not they actually liked me. Looks like we'll have to wait and see 😂

    Hey, I was also at St Hilda's this week for interview, I hope you did find people eventually, maybe we even talked to each other (?) Anyway, good luck with getting an offer!

    It does, but they have a policy which states you have to be 18 or over to use it
    wat

    That's dumb, why would you ever need to be 18 or over to use the internet, unless you were watching porn on college wifi which is a bit weird anyway...

    So I had a couple interviews at st Hugh's (my first choice college) and then another interview at a second college the next day. Taking rejections out of the equation, which one am I more likely to get an offer from?

    I'm so sorry I have to be the boring person who says this, but there's really no pattern as to which college is more likely to give you an offer - you could actually get an offer from an entirely different college, or an open offer (where your college isn't specified until next summer).

    Thanks you too, how do you think the MAT went?

    Ive seen I think 3 TSR members that have said they will be there at that time, so there may be only a few of us there! Although I imagine there will be more. What have you applied for?
    Honestly? I reckoned I bombed my MAT, so I'm surprised I'm even here commenting. Apparently not though... gonna fail interview but worth a shot at least :P How about you?

    Just to clear things up:

    Decisions regarding offers post interview will go out on the 6th January 2016. Apart from allowing for admin errors meaning decisions may go out a day early or a day late etc, nobody will be hearing about their offers this side of Christmas.

    Best of luck to all those who have interviews yet to come, and for those who've finished interviewing - try and take some time to relax and enjoy yourself in the waiting period.

    Had my Skype interview on Monday. Lasted 24 minutes with no analysis of texts. 8 minutes per prof, and I got absolutely grilled.
    Looking back on my answers now they seem elementary and answers that anyone could provide, but I'm really glad to have gotten to at least the interview

    EDIT: to provide some more details for other TSR members for reference, I applied for PPE. I don't think I can share the questions that they asked but I can tell you that they are mostly logical questions and that they will ask "weird" stuff just to see how well you think on your feet.

    I honestly don't think I got accepted though- the econ prof at the end was kinda forcing a smile at the end and I have a feeling the philosophy prof thought I was retarded.
    Was still a great experience though!

    Can you get an offer from a college that hasn't even interviewed you?
