    Hi everyone! Now that tests are over I thought I could start this thread for when interview invitations come in. Comment below what courses you want to study and what college you have applied to also any other thoughts and feelings toward the interview/your chances?

    Thoughts: Well.... after the PAT I honestly have no chance at the interview...(praying that I wrote enough workings down for them to see that I attempted the questions as best as I could) But I'm not too distraught about it since I love the Manchester course so much, plus the Manchester interview went well so I am fairly confident in an offer from them

    yeah it's good to know that you have offers from elsewhere because not getting into oxford is not the end of the world. Same with me I have UCL and Warwick which I'm so happy with

    Yep! It would be a nice bonus if I managed to get into Oxford, but there are so many other amazing unis. And wow! UCL and Warwick are amazing unis so well done! I hope that everyone ends up with uni offers that they're happy with

    Thoughts: Definitely will not be getting an interview. BMAT went awfully (certainly for Oxford's standards anyway) and below their average A*s at GCSE.

    Thoughts: After my dire performance at the MAT I think I have no chance of getting invited to interview, especially considering that my GCSE’s are also below average. Shame but fingers crossed Durham will give me an offer at least.

    The actual interviews are gonna be in December though so we still have lots of time to prepare! I think the dates might differ per college but I'm not too sure

    Is it possible to prepare for interviews besides from reading what you lied about? I was told that it wasn't because they're going to ask questions that are extremely hard to see how you think.

    I am slightly ok with the idea of not getting accepted into Oxford (because it is extremely hard) but I still would like an interview to know that I was capable of at least getting that far.

    Thoughts: I don’t think my ELAT was a complete disaster but I doubt I’ll get a score good enough for an interview invite. I already have four offers though so I honestly won’t be too distraught if (or when lol) I get a rejection.
