I've just received my IB results and am proud to say that I have achieved my Oxford offer!! I'm trying to work out what stuff I need to buy - namely formal wear and would like some help please...
So first of all what are the type of formal clothes and gowns and stuff needed for the matriculation and is that what is also worn for exams?
Secondly, how formal is formal hall? I realise this differs for each college and I'm going to be in St Anne's, where they seem to be less frequent compared to other colleges, so would they be quite formal? (but at the same time aren't they a more modern college??) My mother is all excited and has eagerly bought me quite a few long dresses (prom style in the sales) - is that too much or do people tend to wear shorter dresses??
I'm sorry this is quite a long post because really I have no clue what to expect, but any information would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thank you all in advance,
And actually passed?
