    I don't recall having to do so, but that was a while ago now!

    I wasn't asked to bring any specific documents, but I always showed my passport to the porter.

    I shouldn't think so - any required written work will have been sent up already. Might be worth taking a passport/ID if you want to go out to a pub or anything while you're there - they will ID like crazy during interview periods.

    Is it a bad idea to bring along school transcripts so that the admission tutors can see my performance at school rather than just the A level exams?

    Take them along if you want to, but I doubt they're actually going to look at them.

    You are perhaps the worst persistent user I've come across in the Oxbridge forums but that's irrelevant. It's a bad idea to take transcripts with you because you don't need them. The tutors can see how you've performed at school by your reference. If they wanted any more documents, they'd ask for them.

    You could buy a subscription and change it into one black square. To get green ones you would have to get people to pos rep you, which seems a bit unlikely given this thread and the sentiments of posters.

    They will not give a flying poke at a rolling doughnut about your school transcript. The interview is so they can find out what they think of you, not at all about what you did at school.

    It probably means that people are getting fed up with your threads.
