    How do BNC shortlist Mathematics applicants for interview- i.e what are the factors they take into account?
    The two most important criteria are the MAT and prior attainment (usually GCSEs).
    If your application documents exceptional circumstances or other non-standrad features, the selectors will also take it into consideration. The Mats Ibstitute have summarised practice across Oxford here:

    I wondered what everyone's opinions were on adding module grades/results to the ucas application?
    I have a 4 As at AS, but I have Bs in a couple of modules.
    Will it affect my chances of getting an interview if I list my module results compared to if I don't?
    I don't want it to look like I'm hiding anything.

    Are GCSEs and the ELAT the most important things taken into consideration for shortlisting English Applicants? Thanks!

    Thanks for the information- I read somewhere that they use number of A*'s at GCSEs- is this what you mean by 'prior attainment (usually GCSEs)'?

    Yes - note that the preferred measure is usually the proportion of A*s rather than the absolute number. But as stated, GCSE results are also put in the context of the typical attainment level of a given school where the school is located in an area of above-average deprivation.
