    Have just buggered up any chance of getting into Oxford.

    The first interview went badly: I was so nervous that I could barely say anything on the poem I was given (which I was only given 2 mins to look at). When I was asked what books I've read this year, I completely froze and couldn't remember anything, despite the fact that I read loads! It didn't help that the two tutors were writing notes on me at the same time (very disconcerting).

    The second interview was quite enjoyable though, as I was a little more used to the process. Had to analyse a poem about a hedgehog getting stuck beneath a lawnmower (?!).

    Still don't think I'll get in though. On the plus side, the students staying there were really nice and there were very few really annoying public school types around. So guess I'll be going to Exeter Uni and spending second year in California (with huge loan).

    Good luck to anyone who's still got an Oxbridge interview!
