    Interviews at Cambridge are usually carried out late November/early December, and I think Oxford´s are slightly earlier.

    Not necessarily - some will interview earlier than that; others will interview much later. Some universities appear to have set interview days (as in, those dates are planned before UCAS even opens) and others seem to interview piecemeal as the applications start rolling in - meaning that someone who applies early may get interviewed in October, and another applicant who applies later may not get interviewed until January.

    And don't forget that plenty of universities won't interview at all; you should check the prospectuses of your prospective universities to see whether they interview or not.

    'Fraid that although I applied to four UoL colleges, I only applied to one which you're applying to, so can't be of any help

    No, not even at Oxford or Cambridge. Interview policies vary by subject and uni - hugely. The only way to find out what applies in your case is to check the websites for the courses you are applying for.

    To the OP - the best way to deal with this problem is to ensure that everything you say in your PS is 'bomb proof' - ie you will be able to talk about it sensibly at interview. You can't possibly be expected to work your way through 105 episodes of 'Everything You Might Have Wanted to Know about Maths but Would Rather Not'. Just make sure that you are confident about the topics you have already covered in your AS/A2 course, and if there are 'off-road' aspects of any of them that interest you, cover those too - using the 105 episodes if possible.

    eh well, atleast you got higher/equal to B's in everything which is good and like me, you can always ressit. You will definatly get an offer from King's. And I'm sure you can get in!! Maybe if you resat one or two modules it will bump up your grades?
    going from ABB to AAB for you wont be sooo difficult and I bet your not going to be 'plain stupid and idol' ^____^
    I've got to jump from BDD to AAB
    :O
