    my school advised i wore a suit and introduced myself with a "how do you do?"

    No chance!

    I'm going to be going in chinos and loafers, and with a very vibrant shirt

    And i know one of my interviewers is only 30 something, i think i'll just say, "hello" ?
    are you the same seer that said oxford candidates are *******s?

    I have got a suit to wear, and other smart clothes for the interviews. I was wondering whether you have to wear smart stuff all the time. Can you just wear what you want in the evenings etc...?

    Well obviously you can wear whatever you want at any time - but if you are going for a smart look at the interview it's fine to dress down a bit afterwards. At my interview most people wore smart-casual the day their interview was and switched to casual-casual the next day

    Is it the case that you may have a day when you have no interviews at all?

    Yeah - In my case i had the test and combined interview on day 1, and a seminar with current students on day 2 - on the second day lots of people wore casual clothes, and some even wore trainers. I only had only had smart clothes so was wearing pretty much the same stuff though.

    You don't need to wear a suit all the time. You're unlikely to see any of the interviewing tutors around College since they're *very* busy at this time of year and they probably won't even recognise you anyway. Just wear whatever you normally would at home, that's what everyone else will be doing. Having said that, if you get horribly drunk and throw up on a tutor that might have a bad effect on your application so don't do anything like that...

    You're also unlikely to have a day when you don't have interviews but it does happen - I spent three days in Oxford during my application and I only had two interviews but since then they've made the process more efficient.

    Also, my interview went really badly and I was very nervous but I still got in, so don't stress too much :-)

    If anyone has any other questions about the process they're welcome to email me...

    edders: id prefer if we got any Q&A on here so we can all read it, thanks
