    What happens if, by sheer luck, you do well in the interview, only to arrive and simply not be able to cope with the work? Can they get rid of you if they think you're crap and a waste of time after all cos they judged wrongly in the interview? *is slightly concerned*

    I think you can be chucked out if you fail first year exams without a good reason (illness etc), but generally once you're there, they do everything they can to keep you there. They won't make you leave just because they don't think you're up to it.

    Yeah, they will literally bend over backwards to keep you once they've got you. They'll give you a year out if you can't cope (a friend at Jesus is considering degrading) and I don't get the impression that it's particularly common to chuck you out for failing the first year exams either, unless you do really badly. I think it's a threat they hang over your head but most people seem to think it's rare.

    Good grief, you are the most paranoid person in the entire world!

    Worry on getting an offer first, never mind later on!
