    Hi, I have an interview at Cambridge how were the Oxford interviews? Do you remember some questions?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I think Oxford and Cambridge interviews are pretty different wrt the structure and the content!
    Ummm I got asked the standard questions (why medicine? Why Oxford? Why not nursing?) and they used my personal statement too. I remember being asked why humans have two ears, and also asked to discuss evolution. There was a question about opening a fridge in an empty room, and I got given a graph about 'worldwide problems'.

    Cambridge interviews vary significantly depending on the college
    Can't comment on Oxford though

    It depends on your college, I had oxford interviews and I was asked to analyse graphs on oxygen dissociation, talk about lots of data and my favourite was given a skull and was asked, 'tell me about this animal'.

    Just remember to be yourself, show them you have some personality and that you can actually talk to another human being... Everyone screws up at some point in an interview... But don't try and force things out otherwise you will sound like a complete robot. Remember hte interviewers are people too There is some mroe advice here
