    Well, I obviously didn't do very well in the TSA. Or, at least, not well enough to overcome the fact that my grades are generally not really good enough for Oxford.

    Ah well, worth a try! Just wish I'd hear from some of my other universities now. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear!

    Ah, I have little hope now - your grades are similar to mine and you have better GCSE's. Unless I did well on the TSA, of course.

    Did you receive it by post or email?

    I got rejected today for PPE at Univ.

    My GCSEs are relatively poor, but I thought the TSA went alright. My school doesn't cash in ASs, so I couldn't but them on my UCAS. Meh :dontknow:

    I have to say I was really surprised to be invited for interview given that my grades, when translated into the UK grading scale, amount to something like ABB.

    I can only assume that my TSA score was good enough to offset my grades, but even so, Oxford must have given them very little thought.

    My only explanation is that they don't really know whether they can trust the Bulgarian education system and prefer to rely on other criteria when evaluating Bulgarian candidates. Which is exactly what I was hoping for, actually.

    Weird question, Kneechuh and sorry... - but was having a discussion with my mum:

    When Univ e-mailed you, did you get just a straight e-mail or an attached letter?

    Yay - go elieshout! I'll see you there then!

    Basically, I asked 'cos my mum's theory is that I could have worked out it was good because of the attchment, i.e. if it was a rejection they wouldn't have bothered with a letter. But I think they still would have 'cos the admissions tutor would have done all of the letters in the same format...
