I'm not the best at talking about my interests from the personal statement. Will I have to do much of it? Or not much at all?

Hi I'm a recent maths grad from Oxford. Over all three of my interviews (two from my first choice college, and one at my second college) I was only asked one personal statement question! It was about what my favourite piece to play on the piano was and it was at the very start of my first interview. I'm sure it was only asked to make me feel more relaxed- they wouldn't have minded if I'd said my favourite piece was twinkle twinkle little star! The tutors will care a lot more about how you can answer the maths interview questions that they ask every candidate, because that's the reasonably objective way to compare everyone. However, it's still worth practising answering a few personal statement questions, so that you're not thrown by those questions. Good luck!
