    Next Wednesday!? So soon! Are you all prepared for it then?

    Which one are you going to insure then out of those 4?

    Yeah, It was only really Cambridge that made STEP compulsory and/or Imperial who make it compulsory if you don't do well enough in the MAT!
    Yep, next Wednesday! I've done as many practise papers as I can get my hands on, including the multiple choice section and the essay section. I've done all I could have done, so just need to rely on my ability and not freak out!

    All the unis I've applied for require A*AA-AAA so none of them are particularly safe, but I think I got high enough UMS on my AS levels to only need a B or C to get an A overall, so one of the AAA unis would be my insurance.

    Ah so it's not just Oxford that uses the MAT?

    Hi guys, I noticed on Oxford's website that they only have statistics for 'college success rates' to 2013; I was wondering if anyone knows of any statistics for this which are a bit more recent? I'd been thinking of applying to St. John's, but I really like Christ Church and I worry they're going to be a very popular choice, however it's very hard to make many inferences from the 2013 statistics what 2016 stats might look like! - if it matters at all I'm applying for English.

    More recent statistics aren't published yet but there's really no point getting worried about statistics. I wouldn't have thought there'd be any humongous changes since 2013 but of course there will be year-on-year variation so you're not going to be able to make accurate statistical predictions about your chances even if you had the 2015 data. Particularly if we're talking about by-subject college-specific admissions percentages, because of the small sample sizes, they will jump around. Just apply for the college you like the most, it doesn't affect your chance of getting into the university and if you end up being reallocated to another college you'll be happy there too.

    Not really, depends how early your school processes your UCAS. Lot of people gave their UCAS forms to school almost 2-3 weeks ago now and my school approved it as soon as. A lot of people got their offers from Warwick within 24 hours of having gotten confirmation that Warwick have received their application

    It is central but not right on the high street...I haven't actually been there but have been won over by the recommendation of a friend: also the professors' interests match my own!

    Really? Where else have you applied...I'm curious now! I have gone for Durham, York, Edinburgh, Exeter.

    Yep I'm applying for Law too! My application was sent off last week to LSE, Bristol, Warwick, Oxford and Durham, so vaguely similar ones to you. I've applied to University College though

    I will register to ielts if I get an offer, does it carry any weight in application?
    Not necessarily! I suppose if a college receives two applications from two international students with very similar grades, references & Co, they might be more declined to choose the one that has already taken and passed the IELTS. It reduces the risk of the student failing their offer in case they don't make the required grades.

    Some universities might require you to actually have taken the IELTS and fulfilled the requirements prior to applying, so maybe you should check with them.

    (@Bearbert I'm sure you did really well!I took mine in May, scored 9/8.5/7.5/8 in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking, 8.5 all in all.)

    Oh University was the one I had been considering between with Pembroke but I decided to go with Pembroke when I went on one of the Open Days during the summer. I was also considering Durham but I do IB and I'm afraid of dropping points so I don't want to apply to everyone wanting 38+ so that's why I added Exeter in. Good luck to you though!

    GCSEs are good. Your AS grades may be an issue. However, I can't say 100% either way as people can get offers with those grades. You're predicted grades that exceed the offer. Therefore I would say just apply if you want to. Nobody on TSR can say comprehensively whether you'd be successful or not so apply if you want to. If you choose to apply, best of luck with your application.
