    Had mine yesterday at emmanuel. It was pretty decent I guess but I don't know how the interviewers felt about it.

    Oh I thought it was just that you can't discuss questions? Like on the official thread they were discussing what kind of interviews they had (e.g. General/maths/science etc) but didn't talk about specifics.

    Either way I've removed it just in case! Thanks Did you have an interview too?

    I guess all I can say is that they were different for different people/colleges. I think they went ok, but I did enjoy myself
    No worries and yes I did. On Monday. I wish I didn't want it so much 2 of my interviews went terribly.

    Actually, statistics tends to show that the worse you think you performed on the interview, the most likely you are to get an offer! So wish for the best, prepare for the worst anyway, fingers crossed!

    Had my interviews; everyone was so nice and it really calmed your nerves. The interviews themselvws didn't go that well I thought, said some really stupid things but ah well what's done is done

    Just had my interview on Wednesday. Thought it went pretty well actually It was a really enjoyable experience and even if I don't get in I'm happy I got the experience and learnt so much in the preceding weeks.

    For those for haven't done it yet: remember to relax and stay calm. The more calm you are, the better you can think logically etc. Good luck too!!

    just had my interviews and its true what they say about oxbridge interviews, especially medicine, i nearly died on the inside in the middle of my interview. also not a single ethical question, its like they dont care about your motivation to study medicine, they only care about the actual academics

    Guys, quit asking for tips. Seriously. Just prepare like the rest of us had to because every college approaches questions differently.

    I'm not asking for the questions they asked, and I'm prepping as hard as the next person. If you don't want to help then you don't need to

    I haven't had mine either but I would assume that it'll be a combination of all the things you mention, so best for us to prepare for any of those really!
