Oxford University Releases Interview Questions Before Application Deadline


New Delhi:  Students applying for the class of 2018 at Oxford may have to decide if it was illegal to run a red light in the middle of the night on an empty road. This question and similar other questions are part of the sample interview questions released by Oxford University, ahead of its deadline to apply for undergraduate courses. The last date to apply for undergraduate courses at Oxford University is October 15. The interview questions have been provided by Oxford Tutors who conduct interviews of prospective students. The interview is more of an academic conversation between the interviewee and the interviewer and will assess a prospective student's perception of the subject they want to study and their response to new information or unfamiliar ideas.

Dr. Samina Khan, Director of Admissions and Outreach at Oxford, said, "We emphasise in all our outreach activity that the interview is primarily an academic conversation based on a passage of text, a problem set or a series of technical discussions related to the course students have applied for."

Bout the questions which will be asked in the interview, Dr. Samina Khan said, "We want to underscore that every question asked by our tutors has a purpose, and that purpose is to assess how students think about their subject and respond to new information or unfamiliar ideas." 

The questions have been released to dispel the misunderstanding about the interview process and familiarise students about the kind of assessment which goes on in the interview process. 

Some of the other questions include question about what is lost when one studies a text in translation instead of the original text for those who wish to study Modern Languages (French) or ranking countries according to their crude mortality for those who wish to study Medicine.
