Event description

Description

You've probably heard rumours, or more likely - horror stories - about the Oxbridge interviews.

Last year, students were asked a question about the “Keep off the lawn” signs that are a common sight on the college grounds: “If no one could see you and if no one would find out, would you walk on the grass?”

How would you answer that?


Designed to assess a student’s comprehension skills and their ability to take in information, analyse it, and think critically (on-the-spot!), Oxbridge interviews are notoriously technical, obscure, and hard to prepare for.

Let real admits to Oxbridge break down the interviews and share crucial preparation tips, so you can sleep a little easier. We’ll also cover a logistical bird’s eye view of the Oxbridge application process (deadlines, timelines etc.) to give you a fuller picture of the role the interview plays in differentiating between students. (Hint: It plays a big role. Essentially make-or-break, once you do get an interview.)

In this information-packed talk, Oxbridge interview experts will discuss:

  1. An overview of the Oxbridge application process and the key milestones to consider

  2. What the interview is like, including debunking of common myths/horror stories

  3. Interview preparation tips: what can students do now, regardless of where they are in the application cycle, to help prepare themselves for the interview?

Speakers include Crimson’s Admissions Consultant Nicole Teoh, graduate of University of Oxford with First Class Honours in History & Politics.

Date: June 30, 2018 (Saturday)

Time: 3pm to 4pm

Venue: TBC, will be updated later.
