    I am post-alevel, but am in contact with people at my former school. Apparently most of those applying to Oxford have already received invitiations for interviews. I have not.

    Yea, my tutor rang St Hugh’s up today only to find that they were actually in the process of deliberating over who they were going to give interviews to. They e-mailed her back an hour later to say that I had indeed been summoned though \o/

    Even though a few people on here have been really unlucky most people are interviewed so don't worry about it too much. The hard part is convincing the interviewers that they should give you one of their places. I wouldn't ring the college until it gets to four days before the interview date, as specified, because this will just cause annoyance.

    There's only one student in each year for my subject and I still got in. Don't worry about it. St Anne's isn't the most, ahem, beautiful of colleges but it has a real community spirit. Four places is probably about average.

    It depends on the college how much time it will take. Some send them out way in advance, but my friend applied to St Hughs and didnt get a letter asking her to be interviewed til a couple of days before.
    Did you ring the college you applied for to check then?
    yeah....my carreers advisor is doing that for all of us tommmorow i think..

    To be fair, considering he is coming all the way from Qatar, I think they would understand his need to know slightly earlier than most candidates :\
