Decisions about the application

Reputation and tutorial system.
Oxbridge isn't the best for medicine.

Oxford don't look at UMS

Always had a desire to study Medicine.

It took the most number of medics per year. Although this isn't necessarily a good thing cos it was the most oversuscribed college for medicine this year.

Preparation

yes

Mock interviews and some reading material. Also helped out with the BMAT a little.

Don't try and play the stats, just apply to the college you like.

Interview

yes

no

no

They were mainly academic with a couple of ethical questions. Not much was asked about personality or personal statement - infact, only got asked one question on it in four interviews.

Cell signalling and immunology was asked a lot in terms of academic questions. Had to analyse a graph and describe a random object given to me.

Suit - to look professional

Impressions

Very nice archetecture and location.

Didn't stay at the college so couldn't say

Legendary. Very pleasant and chatty.

Nice and friendly, although mostly southerners and quite posh.
