I had the E&M interview at Pembroke last year, though could only vaugely remember what questions i was asked - you can find a short description of the interview on my site.

If you have any other E&M specific questions i can try and help but really can't remember much more.

Oh one thing -be preparared for logic and "think out side the box" questions - eg what do you do if a muuger threatens you with a handgrenade.

Loftx and I must have been replying to your post at the same time, tho he beat me to it! As i said check out his site, on the Oxford site you can get example papers (in partic the Pem site). They arent there to trick you, just try to be logical and clearly explain your ideas...
Have you got an interview yet?

I'm at Lincoln! But I dont know anything about E&M, sadly. I think we arent too competitive for the less arty stuff though so you've a decent chance, but thats all I really know I'm afraid. There are usually four places a year given too.
what are u reading?

k....thanx for the help.....btw these questions are not for me....for my friend who is too bothered to make his own account.....i applied for EEM at oxford....but both of us havent heard of we have gotten interviews yet...as we are both overseas students and the oxford site says that formal invitation for interviews can be sent as late as 7 days prior to the interview.....I have to apply for visa, as i am an international student...do u reckon i should call soon? if i get an interview it is to be between the 15-18th of december....

How quick can you get a visa? The thing is , they are infamous for leaving it to the last minute to send you an invitation. Perhaps leave it a week, and just phone and politely inquire. What country are you from?

hmm.....i thought that going for an interview would increase my chances of getting in, plus for EEM...only 35 applicants are accepted every year for the whole of oxford...so i thought i might as well do whatever i can to increase my chances...so i sent an email to trinity saying that i would be available for interview if required......
