As did I!

As did I! I agree about the watch being a decoy - I was about to put 10 minutes late but read through it again and changed my answer to on time

I think I got that... i got confused by it all though, so I just panicked and put that answer. Seemed odd for her to be late.

Has anyone heard anything back fromOxford yet?
( I know it's early days, but you never know! )
3. I got 10 minutes early

I got 10 minutes early
So did I, and I am fairly confident with my answer

Me too, I'm pretty sure we're right

Me too, I'm pretty sure we're right

Please do enlighten me. Here's my reasoning.

Additional time spent on journey= Time spent finding the place+Time spent walking there = 20mins (train not accounted for as she wasn't actually late for the train)

Time on clock = Additional Time Spent on Journey - Time Clock is slow by
= 20mins-20mins=0mins difference

I can't remember the exact numbers but I remember adding it all up twice to make sure and it was 10 mins early... Doesn't really matter though, why are you so mad?

It didn't say the train was 10 mins late "according to her watch" i

not in those words no, but it suggested that... why do you have red reputation gems?

no i'm not mad, just wondering whether my reasoning is flawed. if it is, then now's a good time to correct it no?
11. When do we hear??

When do we hear??
Most likely next week

Do you think that this test was particularly challenging/easy or are we looking at roughly the same cutoff score of the last few years (~65 ish) ?

Once interviews have taken place, do TSA scores still contribute to your application? Or is it only used as a qualifier to select the interview worthy candidates?
I personally thought the test was alright, but that's probably due to my experience doing thinking skills in AS. Guessed (Educated ones mind you ) some, answered some, all in the set of skills of answering a thinking skills paper.

Next week's the week, eh? Hopefully all of us (?) shall receive the email!
14. What happens if we dont get an interview? Are we told when people get interviews? (Like a job rejection where they really aren't sorry but say they are.)
15. Yes lads, got an interview offer for PPE on the 8th to the 10th, hmu when you get yours

you are totally right ... I just think we should keep calm.. however, someone has to be the first even though it is still to early now.

What if this guy is the Oxford admissions staff looking for non-gullible students to call them out? *gasp*
