The whole interview was much less daunting than expected. It was more like a friendly discussion than anything.

We spoke about the following topics with regard to my personal statement:
-Article 23 (HK law)
-work experience
-english literature
We then discussed a passage based on a law case for the rest of the interview.

Jeans, black t-shirt,black button up jacket and flats. There was a video somewhere on the oxford website about not having to dress up too much for interviews – they just want you to feel comfortable. Obviously anything too sloppy will be frowned upon…
