    Ok, thanks
    I might hear today then - my post always comes really late though, so it'll probably be a few more hours before I know!
    Hey, I just got my post - no news . Is this a case of no news is good news? I hope so. I am for EP as well.

    I went for New College
    And my post came surprisingly early today... with one crappy bill >.<
    Oh well
    Besides, apparently my college are emailing and sending letters, so I'll probably get an email first anyway.

    Ah, cool. I have not heard anyone getting any news for St Hilda's yet, have you?

    Good luck.

    The old staple for a money-grabbing politician: PPE

    Considering how badly I bombed the TSA though (maybe I should have done timed practice papers?!) I'm not expecting an interview.

    I'm not sure they really helped that much anyway :p:
    I did them and still bombed the test, despite doing alright in the mocks... this one seemed much harder!

    I tried a couple past papers but due to my laziness I didn't try /any/ under timed conditions and completed the papers in my own time. Catastrophic error! Time management was absolutely awful in the real thing Oh well, I just want my rejection closure now.

    Yeah, I'm the same. But I don't mind too much if I don't get an interview, it's not the end of the world, and at the end of the day, it's just another university. I think it's important to remember that

    This may seem like a stupid question; but do universities use the TSA as a pre-interview selector or a discriminator for final places, or both? I ask this because I have an interview yet I didnt think my TSA was good enough. What I'm essentially asking is whether other aspects of the application could outweigh a poor TSA, though my TSA performance could be better than I expect it to be.
