    PRSOM!

    Most people I know who are applying to Oxbridge are applying to the Other Place and speak ill of Cambridge! I asked a friend's brother, who's studying law at Oxford, for some interview tips for Cambridge, and he said (jokingly) "Just tell them you're autistic and you're in".

    Oggsford students be salty. I mean tbf there was that time Oxford said that people not making eye contact was a form of micro-aggressive racism and then Cambridge said that discriminates against people on the spectrum who often have trouble making eye contact

    I'd make the effort anyway. I did have this general interview at school and I did keep eye contact for a while although what I often find I do is when I'm thinking about something my eyes sorta drift away XD.

    I was joking xD I don't usually have problems making eye contact with people, like just now on the way back from the swimming pool I kept eyeballing random strangers down the street!!

    It's cool you got a practise interview; I think my school are organising some after half term, but they've said it will be general too (like "Why do you want to study physics?" etc...)

    The thing about gsheets is any edits can be rolled back.

    Paging ImprobableCacti !

    I think it needs to be kept view-only most of the time...
