Hey,

I'm nervous too!

I have been practising writing essays in the sample material that they provide ie in what way is the future open in a way the past is not? When it comes to the multiple choice part I'm more nervous, as when I've done the practice paper i needed more time- is this something you've experienced too?

I applied to Corpus Christi- wbu?

heyy good luck tomorrow! i applied to downing! i’ve done a few of the questions they provided in the past papers and looked at the oxford tsa papers since some of the questions are in a similar style, but otherwise i have no idea what else i can do. as for their practice paper, i ran out of time as well so hopefully the real thing will go better!

I’ve been doing TSA papers and the sample ones they had, I’ve also looked at ethical theories cause they only ask moral and ethical questions

i thought it would be like the tsa but i found it so much harder, it was nothing like what i expected! i also had problems with loading the questions, so i lost a lot of time as each question loaded i sent them an email so hopefully that will be taken into consideration since i didn’t really have time...

Literally! I thought I was going to be the only one. I found it really hard because It was nothing like the sample paper. My college say that there's no 'penalties' for incorrect answers but I'm sure I got a lot wrong

How did you find the essay- did you do the ethical one or the other one?

same, i definitely got most of my logic questions wrong especially since i didn’t finish and mine just didn’t load....

i did the second essay, i wanted to do the first one bc it’s more interesting but though i had more to say and evaluate for the second one

I'm sure you'll be great at interview!

I've applied to corpus christi.

Now I've got to ace my interview as I'm not sure about the logic questions. How did you find the essay?

I applied Catz, and same I’m so worried for interviews now because I was hoping that my assessment would be okay and would take some off the pressure off- now I feel like I’m just banking on my interview because I must’ve got such a bad score for the assessment

The essay was okay but I know not my best- looking back at it now there’s so much more I wish I’d put in

Mine did not load for a solid 10 minutes at the beginning; the logic was quite variable in its difficulty (some Qs took me 30 secs, others 2/3 mins), but I enjoyed writing the essay (even though my answer was derivative and only ~900 words – I chose the 2nd question)
