    I received an offer without an interview somehow, and in the likely event I don't get Oxford I'd be happy to go there.

    I sent in my application on October 14th, and a bit ago I got an email asking me to answer some supplementary questions (like listing the books I've read for school i the last two years, the ones I've read outside of school and asking me to write a couple of commentaries), did anybody else get questions like these? I haven't heard back from them or anything yet; I sent in my responses on the 19th.

    I'm also predicted three A*s however I was called to interview. I just received an email letting me know that my English BA application was unsuccessful (I think the exam went badly) but that they strongly recommend that I apply for their comparative literature BA... not what i was hoping for but I guess its better than a complete rejection. Anyway I have an Oxford interview on Monday so perhaps that will lead somewhere. Has anyone else had this response for English?

    I think it was on the 23rd of November? How did you find the writing part after?

    I thought I made some interesting comments but at the same time I think I missed some basic points that they could easily put down to me not understanding the poem. I don't think we would have had the same poem though since mine was on the 29th. How did it go for you?

    I had an extract from a book so not the same I think it was alright, just got a bit thrown when I went in and they just wanted you to write about anything.

    Hey, I am on a Gap Year as well and I thought I really screwed up my interview but I was given an unconditional offer yesterday so don't worry about it!

    Hi guys, I applied back in October and haven't heard back yet. I have a predicted 44/45 in IB with 7777 at HL, but I admit my personal statement was kinda rushed and not my best piece of work (not bad, but not great either). Do you guys think this will hurt my chances of getting in significantly?

    are you taking 4 HLs? and if your recommendations are good + your predicted grades, the statement shouldn't hurt your application, but it is a make or break sometimes
