Teasers given to var­sity hope­fuls

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

Should it be il­le­gal to run a red light at night on an empty road?

That is the type of co­nun­drum posed to can­di­dates hop­ing to win an Ox­ford Univer­sity place.

The pres­ti­gious in­sti­tu­tion has re­leased its an­nual batch of sam­ple ques­tions po­ten­tial stu­dents may have to face.

It comes just days be­fore the Oc­to­ber 15 dead­line for would-be un­der­grad­u­ates to ap­ply for a place to start at Ox­ford next au­tumn.

Among this year’s of­fer­ings is a ques­tion for law can­di­dates, on the le­gal­ity of run­ning red lights at night on empty roads.

Jon Her­ring of Ex­eter Col­lege said: “We are in­ter­ested in what can­di­dates think the law ought to be, but more im­por­tant is their ca­pac­ity to jus­tify their po­si­tion.”
