    As I say, I am applying for AMES at downing. Did you think it was Paper 1/2 that tripped you up?
    I personally found it okay although my essay was quite short.

    littledino1011 I feel exactly the same, I just want to prove to myself that I am eligible to even be applying and getting an interview would reassure me of that. Just getting an interview is an achievement in it’s own right but hopefully we all get offers!
    Aren't you eligible just by applying?

    Nah, for me it was definitely Paper 2. Paper 1 was how I expected it to be but Paper 2 was much, much worse. I just didn't know what the insert was talking about and my essay was really badly written with a really bad argument.

    Surely not! The admission test was only 2 days ago, do they have time to mark it and send out interview invites already?
    Which college are you going for?

    So they may have started giving interviews to those who don't have an admission test, but for those who do it will probably be at the end of November time?

    Just to know that I am the calibre that they are looking for would be the best thing in the world!

    I don't quite understand how that proves that some people that apply are not eligible to apply?

    AspiringUnderdog I wouldn’t call it proof but in my opinion, I do feel that not everyone who applied will be what oxbridge are looking for, so to get to the interview for me personally would be a sign that I am what they are looking for and I wasn’t being too ambitious with my choices when I applied.

    Also, could someone teach me how to quote other people’s messages cause I have no idea how to do it, new to TSR 😭

    Being eligible to apply has nothing to do with if you're good enough to get in.
    Also to quote there should be a quote button underneath my post which you can click and it'll put it in your post which you can add to.
    If you're on a mobile device then hold the post and click quote.

    Never got to visit any of the colleges and did not have a lot of time to research each individual one either. Had a few looks at Google Images and Pembroke looked nice so I chose that, lol.

    Will international applicants be notified faster than those UK applicants? coz booking a flight ticket is a thing too
    I’m in the exact same position as you - I’m hoping King’s will be nice and let me know as soon as they can... what’s your subject?
