    Is anyone else going? Could we arrange a TSR get-together?

    I can take questions from you guys about Oxbridge and get an official response from Cambridge and Oxford admissions tutors, professors and students.

    People often misinterpret the information given in the brief time they get, as I've seen on the Cambridge forum following the conference at the Emirates. I wouldn't rely too much on what is given, so if you do have any questions don't be afraid to PM someone like myself or any other Oxbridge student, as well as emailing people directly at either university (e.g. student union reps who are more likely to give a fairer view)

    The conferences mainly deal with the bleeding obvious and are also there to 'sell' Oxbridge to people who may not ordinarily apply. But I hope it will be informative nevertheless

    I worked at this last year, and other conferences this year

    To be honest you really don't need to go to a conference to get this sort of information although its a good set up. Just read the prospectus/familiarise yourself with department websites, and current students on here will happily provide the student viewpoint and personal experiences. Colleges are also generally very willing to answer any more tricky questions if you email them, as is the central admissions office.
