    When should I be expecting to hear from my college of preference?
    Do they send in rejection letters earlier?
    I am having a real hard time worrying.
    Thanks.
    End november/ begin december you find out if you’ve been shortlisten. You should already have been contacted by your college about personal details I think.

    Well they say that they notify you about wether you’ve been shortlisted end november begin december. So I think that includes both rejections and succeses.

    Yes you should revise but probably only worth doing actual "preperation" about 3 months before the exam? In the mean-time, just work hard, find hard questions to do every now and again and try them.

    And when you're not working just be a normal kid and play video-games, footy etc. etc.

    You do realise there are plenty of people who only start preparing about a week or two before and still get in? The guy I tagged started only a few weeks before IIRC and he says he has got in the 90s on a paper which people are struggling to get over 50. If you are good at it, you don't need to stress and you just turn up and do it because at the end of the day it is about "aptitude".

    How can you prepare for interviews if you want to do well? My school isn’t really in for practice interviews and such.

    Does anyone else fancy emailing their college and asking when physics decisions are going to be sent out? I've tried but had no response so far. Post here if you do and get a response.
