Individual subject threads seem to be popping up, so I thought I should make a PPE one as personal statements and tsa stuff ramps up


Optional icebreakers
College?
National/international?
Preferred disciplines?
Current application progress?
Anything else/fun facts

Good luck everyone :borat:

Hello! I'm not sure if I'm applying to Oxford but I have finished the personal statement just in case I do hehe. My teachers take a while to respond to my inquiries about my predicted grades. If I do, it would be amazing to study at Balliol College! I'm also a reapplicant, I got my A Levels this Summer.

Since you are a reapplicant, you may have Ps from the last time? What was the experience last time?

Sorry for not making it clear hehe, I actually applied for a different course and I never really had the chance to apply early entry last year. I wrote the PPE personal statement in the Summer with a few of the things I mentioned in my old PS. An update from last time I wrote on here though, I’m sticking with the Oxford application and I’m applying to LMH! How about you?

Similar - one educated guess bc answer didn't match, and one which i just calculated what seemed like the most and least expensive to work out the difference because of time, instead of confirming by checking each cost. Those were the only ones I didn't properly do, but I did also have 6-10 others flagged that I wasn't confident on. I go back and forth on how confident/happy I am about how I did, right after I thought it was alright, then was devastated and sure I wouldn't get an interview, not I don't know again. It is a strange waiting game isn't it

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...fANgE/htmlview

i got this from the TSA thread- it's the times that each college sent out interview offers/rejections last year for each course. if you open it and take off the /htmlview from the end you can filter by column for your college and course. hope this helps i've applied for mansfield and last year they sent out all ppe invitations and rejections on the 25th, so i'm using that as an around about date it should be sent through

Exactly my feeling. It definitely could have gone better but sometimes I think I did abysmally and am in despair and others I'm fairly optimistic. For me I don't think I'll get accepted into the course and I'm okay with that but if I don't get an interview I'll be pretty sad lol

Same here. I started preparing for the TSA in July and was doing so well in practice tests (45/50) but now I am pretty sure I've already got 2 PS questions wrong and have to guess four other questions because my answers are not among the choices...I sometimes really doubt whether I'll get an interview, and sometimes I have the strange optimism like "I'll be fine as long as I get all other questions correct" but what if I made careless mistakes, which I tend to do in a stressed condition. Good luck to all of you and hopefully we can meet each other next October! Finger crossed!!
