What's the difference between Cambridge and Oxford?

For instance, would there be like an admission tutor who would make decisions on who to invite for an interview? I know Cambridge is, but is it also the case for Oxford?

Yes, most universities have an “admissions tutor” but they won’t do every job themselves, they usually head up a team of people who prioritise applications and decide who to offer to or invite for interview at the Departmental level. Oxford and Cambridge add another layer to that as admissions go through semi-independent colleges and each college is likely to have an admissions tutor and a team who work with them, including subject specialists who actually do the interviews.
