    Oh I see. I don't actually understand why Cambridge (and Imperial for you) need all of our subject UMS scores. Not really sure how my Chemistry UMS is important for my admission into a Maths course.
    I agree. Why Imperial needs my Economics and Business studies UMS grades? I actually emailed them and they told me that they are more interested in my Maths, FM and Physics grades. I think UCL's method of asking only Maths UMS grades is much better.

    Hi, so did you apply for 2 different courses at Imperial? If i had the choice I would put have Mathematics with Applied Mathematics/Mathematical Physics at Imperial but I didn't realise you needed MAT, so I'm considering the Physics with Theoretical Physics instead :/
    Yes, i applied to these two very similar courses. My priority was Mathematics with applied mathematics, but i knew that i don't have much chance to get required grade from MAT without any preparation and thus, applied to Physics degree as well.

    I'm fairly certain that of the 19 I answered I only got 1 wrong and so after looking at a BMO paper I'm really hoping that 96 is not enough to go through.It looks terrifying.

    Looking at the questions, I'm very annoyed I didn't attempt many of the questions on the last page, as they look fairly straightforward (especially q25! which is normally very difficult to do.)

    My predictions for the thresholds are:

    Bronze - 55
    Silver - 73
    Gold - 86
    Senior Kangaroo - 90
    BMO1 - 102
