    Just got back from a Philosophy trip to Oxford - it was so awesome. We had lunch in Balliol and one of the postgrad students asked if any of us were coming to Oxford and when I said I had an offer he said "Welcome to the family"...Really want to get in!

    Same, I thought it would be really hard, especially considering I got 32% in our mock.

    Certainly! There'll be some others I don't know about as you're doing French on its own, but these are the ones I've been told to get with the recommended editions:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Short Texts:
    Montaigne, 'Des coches' in Essais, Livre III ed. Micha, published by Garnier-Flammarion (and it says don't get the Galliard Folio edition)
    Graffigny, Lettres d'une Péruvienne (it says don't get the Coté-Femmes edition)
    Baudelaire, 'Au Lecteur' and poems 3 ('Elévation'), 7 ('La Muse malade'), 10 (etc.), 19, 21, 23, 25, 28, 29, 31, 36, 40, 44, 48, 49, 50, 53, 62, 66, 69, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 81, 83, 84, 85 from 'Spleen et idéal' in Les Fleurs du Mal, ed, Chesters and published by Bristol Classical Press, or ed. Dupont, published by Flammarion, or ed. Pichois, published by Gallimard
    Césaire, Cahier d'un retour au pays natal, published by Présence africaine
    Racine, Phèdre, ed, Parish, published by Bristol Classical Press
    Beckett, En attendant Godot, published by Editions de Minuit

    Prose Fiction:
    'La Chastelaine de Vergi' in Nouvelles Courtoises, ed. Méjean-Thiolier + Notz-Grob, published by Livre de Poche
    Laclos, Les liaisons dangereuses, ed. Pomeau , published by Garnier, Flammarion
    Balzac, La Peau de chagrin, ed. Satiat, published by Garnier-Flammarion or the Folio edition ed. de Sacy
    Proust, Combray, ed. Hodson, published by Bristol Classical Press or in Du coté de chez Swann, ed. Compagnon, Gallimard Folio edition

    My letter says to read all the short ones and two of the novels before October if possible, but I don't know whether it would be different depending on subject combination/college.
    Mine's slightly different. I have to read them all beforehand apparently. Also, they've been more specific with the Baudelaire which is more helpful than St. John's has been. The editions are also slightly different too.

    I'm dreading how many lectures/tutorials I'm going to have seeing as I've only been told what I'll be having for French...

    To be honest I wish that Oxford offered Linguistics as a single honours course. I didn't realise how much literature there was going to be. Not that I'll do this, but I wonder how flexible Oxford is on switching courses.

    :erm: I don't get it... :blushing:
    Aha, well the letter was only about the Christ Church Entrance Bursary. Usually I just get spam email from them asking me to join the Facebook group!

    EDIT: I get it now!
