    for lots of courses they don't really care that much about your personal statement, more on your grades and interview, and if you do an entrance test then that too

    I'd hate to be kept waiting like that, it would drive me mad. My school has many faults, bt it is really good at UCAS!

    Hopefully My referee is on their butts! Since I'm an EU-non-UK applicant, and my school isn't used to predict grades this early, some teachers act a bit difficult about it. Also, the school system doesn't really work the same way as the UK's does, which means I haven't yet started some of my courses - and I need predicted grades for those too...

    Let's just hope for that. I guess I'd need some nice scores at the MAT then :P

    I did the MLAT last year - it's mainly grammar stuff, so have a go at revising using languagesonline if you're stuggling a bit (look at your tenses).

    Nope. Select India - ICSE as the qualification, and enter the subject and the marks accordingly
