    Call up the college and explain, but if anything, I would say plan your journey carefully, as they try to get alternative transport out there (like coaches)

    Then one's sledging ability will determine their chance of an offer.

    I am also worried about this, I have an interview on Monday at Cambridge which is 7 hours away from where I live. As it currently stands, there are no planes flying out from my airport and the trains are at a standstill.

    Will be they be willling to rearrange it if I cannot get there? Should I let them know now this might be an issue or should I wait and see?

    If you want to go to Oxbridge they expect you to be the brightest and best in the country. Use your intelligence to get yourself there. Maybe knock up your own jet pack in your shed this weekend. Or maybe you could pull your finger out and invent teleportation. If you don't someone else will and they will be getting that offer and you won't... London MET beckons!

    I would phone them up now and ask what happens if you can't make it.

    I'm not really sure, you should probably ask them. and btw i think this is a totally reasonable question, there are lots of people who simply couldn't be able to get there as some train lines are down, roads are closed, airports shut etc and for some people it would incredibly difficult, dangerous or downright impossible to get there.

    Oxford clearly has control over the weather; this is clearly a test of determination! :p:

    I suggest we all invest in hiking boots and furry coats for when they begin the 2 week blizzard tomorrow!

    EDIT: Oh come on, I was only joking. I'm in the same boat as everyone else here; just ring them and ask... I'm sure they've noticed the snow

    I think I've got some skis in the loft...? Poles might be a bit bent, though. I'll offer them to you for £300; they cost me considerably less than that, but I reckon the chance of an Oxbridge education should earn me some profit.

    Just phone them - they're not unreasonable robots, I'm sure they've also noticed the snow.

    http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...s/weather.html might be of use to Oxford-ers. I presume the same applies for Cambridge.

    Just to reassure, with candidates coming from over the country, and indeed all over the world, for interviews next week, we are well aware of the problems that the snow could cause, and are planning accordingly for all contingencies.

    If you do think that your ability to attend for interview will be seriously affected, you should contact the admissions department at your college at the earliest opportunity for specific guidance.
