    Hi guys! I hope you can help me out. I was wondering if any of you received a Pre-Registration form from any of your colleges? I received one from LMH more than a month ago. Cause I'm an international student in Asia I'm pretty reluctant to send it back by mail in case it gets lost or anything, so I emailed the lady (Senior Tutor) who sent me the form asking if I could scan it and email it back. She didn't reply even though I emailed twice, so I sent an email to their admissions department as well. I've sent three emails over the last two weeks and gotten no replies, I'm so worried there's a deadline I'll miss or something! Does anyone know anything about this?
    Is sending the form by registered mail not an option in your country? That way, you could guarantee that the form reaches LMH (eg the Royal Mail offers an International Tracking + Signature on receipt option). In the meantime, you could perhaps scan a soft copy of it to your computer, send it to them via email, and explain that the actual document is coming in the mail?

    Unless it specified a deadline though, I think you should be alright. Just drop them a note and send it asap.

    Got an email from Brasenose (where I interviewed) today saying that my open offer has now been changed to a standard Brasenose offer! So happy! Has this happened to anyone else???

    What subject is this for?

    Chances are someone who had that offer originally withdrew or rejected them so it was given to you now

    Yeah I guessed that must be it, just wondered if anyone had experienced the same, it's for experimental psychology

    Congratulations!
    Thanks! (If that was directed at me)

    It's a lovely surprise as I felt a bit lost before, not knowing which college I'd be at (some people with open offers might relate) so it's really nice to now have something concrete to look forward to. Anyone else with a Brasenose offer for EP or PPL?

    I got an offer for PPL (psych and philosophy) but not at Brasenose, grats for your offer also!

    Christ Church (applied and stayed at Queen's, but got an extra lucky interview at ChCh!). Are you doing PPL as well?

    Wow, well done, I've heard Christ Church is lovely so I'm sure you'll still love it! I'm doing EP; I did look into psych with linguistics but there's no way I'd have passed the exam, and I can take a linguistics module in EP anyway, so didn't see the point in risking it!

    Unconditional offer from St Catherine's for History - if anyone is at Catz or doing History, let's chat! Does anyone know if there will be a Catz Facebook group or anything where we can talk? Or will there be a general Oxford offer holders FB group?

    So here I am feeling like I'm in the wrong thread... PPE at Corpus :-D
    Hey so I'm a current Self-taught AS Level student and I'd like to apply to Oxford this Autumn for PPE. One of my A- level subject is History and I was wondering if any if you any of you could give me some advice relevant to this thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...php?t=3293059&

    I hope you don't mind me asking this, I'm self-taught and have been since my GCSE's so I could really use the help!

    Congrats to you too! Was Univ your first choice? I've been starting to worry recently too - I'm pretty confident that I can manage 3 As but it's the A* that concerns me :erm: what subjects are you doing? I'm doing psych, biology and Spanish

    Univ does have a lovely atmosphere from what I've seen so what made you choose psychology as a degree? I'm guessing they don't offer it at your school/college? And omg the data question in biology is ruining my life... but I'm guessing it's fine for you, being a mathematician? :')

    My parents gave me books about it over the years and I just got really into it. Did you enjoy doing it for a level? My friend said there are so many case studies. They don't offer it here but they were really helpful for interview prep. What board are you doing for bio? In ocr biology there are hardly any maths questions.

    It must be disappointing to have had to wait so long to study it properly! I enjoy some parts much more than others, but the reading around is the most fun bit, so I figure uni is where it'll get really interesting. The studies aren't bad at A level, you don't need much detail and some are recycled from GCSE. If you want to get a head start you could probably have a look at A level revision resources online? I'm on AQA, it's not so much maths as handling data but it's a difficult question! I've heard OCR ISAs are harder though so I guess it must even out?

    I'm guessing some if not all of you guys got the email from Oxford student funding about the Lloyds Scholars Programme? I'm hesitant about applying despite all the financial support they provide. It seems as though you get a lot of financial help but you need to do 100 hours of volunteering as well as at least one internship over the summer in your penultimate (my 3rd) year at uni. This means I could potentially miss out on other work placements and such closer to my subject area (CompSci) unless I drop out and deal with whatever happens to bursaries that have already been granted.

    My main question is are there loads of opportunities for internships and financial aid from other firms I should be aware of before jumping into this too quickly? I'd hate to sign up and find out Microsoft have shown up looking for interns or something. I think I heard something about Freshers week being a time where firms might come and try to attract students? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    What, you have to do an internship with Lloyds in the summer of your third year? If so, I'd probably avoid it. There are opportunities for internships, not so much financial aid (other than the opportunity bursary) and not many firms will pay a bursary every year (there used to be such a bursary programme at Oxford funded by different companies, I think it closed the year after my intake). I don't think Freshers' fair involves companies trying to recruit, but there are plenty of events like this throughout the year at Oxford.

    Yeah, it appears they offer you two internships, one of which is compulsory in your third year. I feel weird turning down any opportunities to increase the financial support I'm being given (since I need as much as I can get) but I don't think I wanna be shackled to Lloyds and make a promise that I might regret 3 years down the line.

    Further details for anyone are all over the website: https://www.lloyds-scholars.com/about

    Thanks a lot for your help
