Teachers' e-guide

Supporting your Oxford Candidates

Modern Interior


This section aims to explain how Oxford interviews work, the part they play in the admissions process and what you can do to best support your candidates in preparing for interview.

Please remember that the interview is just one aspect of an application, as tutors will also consider:

  • academic acheivement
  • predicted grades
  • personal statement
  • teachers' reference
  • admissions tests or written work, if they are required for the subject.
  • contextual data

For further information and advice, including past interview questions, videos of mock interviews and admissions tutors video diaries, please see our dedicated interviews webpage.
