I sent off my UCAS 2 weeks ago, and part way thru changed my choice from St Hughes to Magdalen. At what point do you receive an email confirming that your college has received your application:confused:

anyone know anything about Magdalen and studying English there?:cool:

Just go on UCAS track, and substitute your college choice. However I would not recommend i at this stage...

So although you get a confirmation from UCAS, do you also get a confirmation from the college? Where are you applying?

I did try it because I wanted to switch from Magdalen to Keble but it didn't work. Oh well, I think I'm fine with Magdalen, even though it appears to be slightly harder to get into for Arch and Anth.

The difficulty of getting into Arch and Anth (or any subject, for that matter) is the same regardless of which college you apply to; colleges use pooling mechanisms to ensure that deserving candidates who may have been out-competed at more competitive colleges get offers. However, your odds of getting into that particular college may be lower due to higher applicant numbers

I suppose so, but it's rather unnerving to see the percentage of candidates applying to Magdalen getting accepted into Oxford as compared to those of other colleges.

Archaeology and anthropology:

In 2013 there were 72 applications across 7 colleges for a total intake of 15.

I don't think looking at percentages is meaningful.

Good luck!

I applied to St. John's on the 12th and got a confirmation from Oxford saying that I have successfully applied to St. John's. Is that the real confirmation letter or will I get another one from the college itself?

Don't look at the college stats, if you're good enough to go to the university then they will try and fit you in to the number of spaces.

Plus, if you do get in to Magdalen, you're in for a treat! I loved Magdalen when I studied there
