What I wish I'd known before my Oxbridge interviews...

It's okay not to know the answer to a question straight away - the interviewers care far more about the process than about the ultimate conclusion. The point of an Oxbridge interview is to show your interviewers how you think and explore different avenues of thought, considering their nature and implications. You just need to stay calm enough to do this out loud!


Extra-curricular interests...

Rowing (senior coxswain), student journalism, Model Untied Nations
