    Dear Oxford students,

    Could you please share your interview experiences here:

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...ew_Experiences

    It would be so useful for future applicants. At least we would have a general idea how does the interview process proceed and what to expect.

    Additionally we would get to know which specific questions were you asked?

    P.S. I am applying for Biological sciences

    There are two really good examples on the Cambridge side - maybe try to do something similar?

    I meant the code - the wiki edit thing is beyond me. The writing of the piece itself is well within my field of knowledge

    Telling you exact questions would be bad form on our part. Some tutors are lazy and recycle questions each year

    Like TheLonelyGoatherd says, people are strongly discouraged from passing on specific questions.

    But there's lots of official guidance - and if you go to the Open Day at the Biology department, they do a live mock interview with a current student in front of the whole audience.

    I think it's fair to say that at some point, you will be handed a specimen and asked what you can tell about the organism from the specimen. You're also likely to be asked to talk about some 'big issue' that interests you.

    Format-wise, the typical scenario seems to be that you get around 3 separate interviews over 2 days. Each lasts about 30 minutes, and you might get two at your chosen college, and the third at another college. But it does vary a bit, and I don't think there's any special significance if your interview pattern is different to this.
