    Guys with the offers from Exeter, what was the interview like? Did they ask maths/physics questions? Any further reading and if so, did they ask questions about the book?
    thanks

    Really short, asked for a couple of formulae and discussed some physics principles. Asked me a couple of questions about what I'd wrote on my personal statement, and asked some deep/awkward questions like 'what is matter' and 'how does maths relate to physics'.

    Nothing to worry about though I imagine they give offers to most people with interviews.

    Who else just got their Oxford rejection? :P

    (Hell, I messed up the graph of y=e^-x in the PAT; I'd have rejected me for that!)


    At least the pressure's off, and now I don't need to worry about interviews :P

    Good luck everyone else :P

    Good luck I wore a shirt and tie but there was a mix of what people were wearing! I'd say something smart is the best way to go but you don't have to go to town with it

    I just got rejected from Oxford as well. (I was rejected from Lincoln College). I'm not so surprised either, while I was fairly confident with what I answered, being quite slow meant I didn't get to do the last long question which was probably enough to knock me below the threshold.

    Did you have your heart set on Oxford? I didn't. For the past couple years, I've been saying no to people asking me if I was going to go to Oxbridge for many reasons. In the end, I couldn't think of a better 5th option (as I already had a top, two mid, and an insurance choice) so I applied thinking that if everything went well maybe I changed my mind. But I'm still fairly certain I didn't want to go there, so I'm not that annoyed about it. (I was more interested in the whole application process and wanted to see what interviews were like there - so it's a little disappointing to not be able to find out myself).

    Hope you've got another University you really like.

    I think that's partially why I didn't do so well.
    I only decided that I wanted to even apply to Oxford in late September. I didn't have my heart set on it, and I agree, it was more about the process.
    I would have hated myself if I didn't even attempt something that I'd only ever get one chance at.

    And also, I've just been looking more detail into the course, and there's a much higher proportion of exams than everywhere else (I think I prefer coursework), so I'm not that disappointed. (Not to mention all the other stuff I'd basically have to give up due to the crazy Oxford workload! :P)


    And yeah, I love Bath, and I've got an offer from them. I have an interview at Bristol, and I'm currently deciding on Leeds and Birmingham, as the other two.

    Where else are you applying? And good luck!

    I'm very paranoid about Imperial because I completely screwed up my interview. SO ANXIOUS.

    I was interviewed on the 30th October and got an offer. I made mistakes in all the maths questions but still got in so don't worry
