    So I had 4 interviews for medicine. Three of them went alright (I think? It's really hard to tell) and one was absolutely horrendous.

    Think I've finished all my interviews. Maths & Philosophy interviews at St John's were both decent I think (& actually quite enjoyable), as was Philosophy at St Cats completely blew Maths at St Cats though... They were great questions for me as well but I panicked & my mind went blank

    The colleges share their opinions with each other, but they also understand you can't be on top form all the time. So if the first college wants you, they probably won't worry too much if the second college doesn't think you're so great.

    (And don't forget that how you feel interviews went can often bear no resemblance to how the tutors think they went!)
    Thank you for your reply!
    I think first two were not too bad, but i agree that interviewers can think completely otherwise as i couldn't understand anything from their face/reaction, they should be really experienced. However for my third i understood how stupid i was as Oxford mathemtics applicant should have answered such questions and this was obvious from interviewers face, i shouldn't have been so nervous I still loved Brasenose college, people there are really very friendly, unfortunately i definitely have no chance getting to that college. I hope i can get offer from Corpus.

    Have you applied to Corpus or had your second interview there? And for which degree if you don't mind me asking? I love Corpus as well, but loved Brasenose as much

    Not always, but it's quite common for the tutors at a given college to ask the same questions to everyone they interview.

    It's less common in the humanities, where they're more likely to spend more time talking about something from someone's personal statement.
    In PPE everyone had the same in Economics and Philosopy and they had like three different ones for Politics.
    But we only started talking about it when everyone was finished (it is really stupid to reveal the questions before that, I agree with you)

    I applied to Corpus, didn't have any interviews elsewhere though! Brasenose was actually my second college of choice. I'm applying for Classics, so I was up there from the 8th to the 12th! Which course have you applied for? How are the interviews going?

    Doing our bit for the Forum to get to 10,000.

    Last day of interviews tomorrow - too many late nights here in the Admissions Office.

    Don't be like us - grab an early night and sleep well if your interview is scheduled for day 11.
