I was hoping that someone would be able to clear up the issue of interview feedback. I was originally under the impression that interviewers write up a *report* of sorts about your interview and send it to your school, where you are then entitled to see it. The reply Adshur got from Clare confirms this.

HOWEVER, today my head of year acted as if I was a complete idiot for thinking the admissions people would *bother* to write up feedback for 'every single' rejection. She said she'd never recieved anything of the like and didn't know why I'd have silly idea like that in my empty little head... well, not quite those words but she has perfected the partonising tone...

Okay, this is a bit void as I do actually have an offer, but I have friends who don't and I would really like to know the University policy on feedback, simply so that all my peers can get the feedback they deserve if it is infact available. Also, if they happen to write up stuff about successful applicants I''d be pretty interested too. And most importantly I'd really really like to find out the truth from my teacher because she *does my nut*

So does Cambridge (or Oxford) as a University policy give interview feedback? Or is it down to individual College policy? Or simply only in special case scenarios?

I'm pretty sure that all Cam colleges do for rejections, not entirely sure on Oxford's policy.

Your ref. gets it and it's up to them if they tell you.

On the Oxford form there is a box to tick if you don't want it to be sent to your ref.

Cambridge send feedback, or at least some colleges do if requested. You can ask your school to show you what the college says.
