    I was really sick on the day of the admission test and didn't take the exam. And i was just wondering if I get an interview, would there be a chance of them asking me questions from this years paper.

    Also, how hard would it be for me to get into oxford without taking the entrance exam (PAT in this case) , like would i have to do really well in the interview and would the bar be set higher for me than other students.

    Thanks

    Um, I'm not sure you'll be given an interview because the interview is offered based on your PAT score. Occasionally, in the event your PAT score is below the mean mark + 15%, they will still offer an interview if your grades are remarkable. Not sure how heavily the PS is weighed because some say they don't look it at all, but when I asked a few people at the university they said 1/3 grades, 1/3 PS and 1/3 TSA marks. You could maybe call the university and see if they'll allow you still take the exam or ask them if you still have a chance. Good luck!
