    Hey guys! Back from Oxford... Those 4 days were just amazing, I already miss Oxford Interviews weren't horrible but not that great either... They didn't ask me a single thing on the eurozone crisis or other economics related topics I prepared for. It was just Game theory in my economics interview and for management it was a text from the guardian which I had to analyse and comment on... I didn't get a third interview though, that is, I was only interviewed by the college I applied to (Merton). Don't know whether that's a good thing or not...

    Oh and by the way: Got a Warwick L100 offer yesterday

    Well done on the offer! Don't worry about only one college interviewing you, my sister only had one at Magdalen (law) and was given an offer and told she performed second best at interview, so hopefully this is a good sign! Your interview sounds quite interesting especially about the management, hopefully I get one next year too

    OK I think, hard to tell! Just wish some of my other universities would get a move on!

    Your interview is over as well

    I wouldn't be too worried if I were you - most people, myself included tend to be pessimistic when nervous. You probably did quite well ^_^




    Has anyone applied to the same uni more than once and recieved offers for all those courses? I've got a friend with four offers from somewhere, but I'm not sure if that's just that specific university who give out multiple offers...

    what do you study in Work and Leisure?
    Wage Rates
    Poverty & Inequality
    Market Structures
    Leisure Markets
    Trade Unions etc.

    Just a few of the topics that come to mind, it's an awful module in my opinion.

    I'm doing ocr work and leisure in jan. I have started revision, because I really want that A* .

    We study:
    Holiday & Air Travel
    Cinema Admissions
    Spectator Sports
    Television Broadcasting.

    I think it's quite simple, apart from the fact you have to remember the features of the individual markets :mad:

    I've just got back from Oxford as well, Christ Church, and have a Warwick L100 offer. I was just wondering what you plan to do if you don't get the Oxford offer, assuming that grades are good, would you reapply to Oxford/ apply to Cambridge next year, or just go with Warwick? I was so pleased when I got the Warwick offer, but having spent 4 days in Oxford, don't really want to study anywhere else.

    I totally understand you. Oxford is so amazing, I really want to study there. I mean before I stayed there for 5 days, I of course wanted to get accepted by Oxford but I am sure it wouldn't have crushed me if they had rejected me pre-interview... Those 4 days though made it clear that this is the perfect place to study. But I don't think I would reapply. It was such a mind-exhausting time and as a German I had to spend a lot of money as well... Now we have to wait until Christmas... How did your interviews go? What was the economics interview like?

    Warwick econ is pretty slick, 4th according to the complete uni guide, and will put you in good stead, not sure if it would be worth reapplying... What are you thinking of doing in the future out of interest?

    Is that fact or simply speculation?
