    I've just got my IELTS results. First step for Oxford(and then world domination) complete^_^

    Who else has the results as international applicants?
    I will register to ielts if I get an offer, does it carry any weight in application?

    Pretty important for Maths, the decision to be invited to interview is based upon your GCSEs and MAT score. And then the decision on an offer is based on mainly the interview, but the other elements are looked at as well still
    What about for Experimental Psychology? :-)

    Does the Norrington Table ranking matter? I was speaking to a friend about applying to Oxford and he said that I shouldn't apply to Lady Margaret Hall as it was crap because it is generally in the bottom half of the Norrington table. I thought he was being ridiculous but I heard the same from another friend so now I'm unsure.. :/

    No, it doesn't matter in the slightest.

    "In the open day, the admissions tutor told us that the average mark is usually around 50 on the HAT and that less than 20 people get more than 70 on the test. He said what is important is to be on the top 70% in comparison to other candidates"

    Not exactly a threshold but this is the best I could find.

    Hey!Same thing happened to me I did not fill the college section when I was applying to BMAT but today I found an email from my test centre in which were listed my details and there was also the college choice (Balliol) even if I didn't filled anything.Anyway, I think is just for an informative purpose so nothing to worry about.Correct me if I'm wrong

    My exams officer said it wasn't setting stone when I put that down so hopefully she's right - I guess they just need to have a college to send it to so that someone can mark it!

    Do you mind if I ask which college it is that you both like?

    I am applying to Merton for Classics 1A.

    Worcester! The ground are beautiful and there's a lake!
    I'm applying for Classics 2 - I've never done Latin or Greek. Good luck with your application!

    I have got 8,6/10 so 86% average in my 11th year. I'm now in year 12 (just started) and I'll have my exam in year 13. Would you say that 90-93% average is competitive for Medicine?

    Does anyone know if many people get accepted by Oxford to study medicine with a third non-science A Level (basically not Maths or Physics)? I'd just be interested to know if it's a common occurrence or a rarity. I love Oxford and the Medicine course. Therefore, even though I'm not doing three sciences at A Level, I'll definitely be applying! It's just choosing the college and working out if there are any that actually do give preference to those with three science subjects.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who can help

    Hi
    Thanks very much for your help! I really appreciate it


    Something I noticed was that only 10% of applicants had two sciences and one non-science subject... does anyone know why this is? Is it just the typical stereotype that you must have physics or maths? If only 7% of people who got accepted had only two science A Levels then that worries me slightly haha!
