Hey I applied to UVA to study Economics and Business but sadly I failed the entrance exam as I got 53% and you needed 60%. Just to give you a vague heads up, in order to get marks you have to have the correct answers shown with their workings as they informed me. It's not like maths in the uk where you get some marks for showing your workings. I'd say DEFO do the past papers again and again and focus on those especially nasty questions. I wish you all the best, hope you do better than I did lol such a disappointment..
1. Does anyone remember how long it took to get their results back?
2. How do they make sure people aren't getting helped by their supervisor? Would be a pain in the ass to spend all this time revising while someone gets their bloody teacher to do it!
It was fine, I think I did pretty well. The exercises were very similar to those on their site. In fact I tought it was quite easy, but this might be because here in Romania we study Maths at a higher level I guess.
As for your question: "2. How do they make sure people aren't getting helped by their supervisor?" , the answer is simple: they don't! They trust you, I guess.
I could have been easily helped by my superviser, but (un)fortunately he's a very honest/righteous person, so he didn't say a word during the test
