Oxbridge Interview Practice & Guidance

The Personal Statement Company provides personalised interview training for Oxbridge Candidates and, for subjects where it applies, offers guidance on entrance tests. This can be carried out over Skype or in person with one of our specialist tutors. We recommend that you select the two-stage process though you can simply choose Mock Interview 1.

Oxbridge Mock Interview 1

provides candidates with:

  1. Experience of an Oxbridge style interview atmosphere

  5. Clear and constructive feedback on their interview manner and style.

The hour will be preceded by a list of questions tailored by us for your application for you to consider in advance and then consists of: 20 minutes of discussion and preparation, 20 minutes mock interview, 20 minutes of feedback, though this is amended to the needs of the candidate.
