# The Oxford TSA thread - 2015 applicants - 5th Nov 2014 Watch

1. Do they have different sets of essays per geographic region? I live in the U.S. so I sat the TSA here in New York - and we had different essay prompts than the ones you are talking about...

Shame too, because I would have liked to answer that immigration one.

The silly one where it said about how many containers someone needed in each quarter, in like april, june, oct etc
Thanks! Was worrying I'd missed out a page
3. I took it in the USA and got completely different essay questions
4. I took TSA in China, and I believe I got the same sets of essays for I see the immigration essay. Maybe the international version is different from British one.
5. Hi, your link does not work anymore. Can you list the actual name of the book?txs

36:
1) convert all times to london times. (Dubai depart = 10.30 (-4); arrive Kampala=17:45 (-3)).
2)12 hours from 'depart london' to 'depart dubai' - waiting time 5hrs 15 mins. So flight time is 6 hours 45 mins.
3) time between 'depart dubai' and 'arrive kampala' is 7 hours 15.
hence total time is 6 hrs 45+ 7 hrs 15= 14 hrs (B).

37: got that wrong - i think it's explained in an old thread though so give it a google.

38: do a drawing. If you draw it folded first time, then each side is 4. If you draw folded second, then draw a dotted line through the middle, you will see 5 resultant lengths. That means C immediately (only C has 5 lengths).
Sometimes you can get the answer with minimal calculation if you think a bit before approaching.

Sorry couldnt be more help for 37.
Thanks for answering 38 - I could not get my head around it!
