    Do you think I should email and ask for them? One the day of the entrance exams I asked a physics expert and she said that they wouldn't reveal our scores - they were to be private. But now I'm curious because everyone else looked at their scores!!

    Are you sure. Who told you this. I saw 2 people on the chemistry interview paper with 506 and 500.

    I know. Anyone below the academic threshold do not get offered an interview. See admission arrangements, paragraph 5.

    Err... 520 seems like a strange number.
    According to the admissions policy the ratio of the score of interview to exams is 1:4, so each exam (should) be worth 104 (520/(1+4).
    Since Winading001, got 114 on his English Lit exam, it doesn't make sense.

    Not unless I read my English score incorrectly.... but I'm confident my English Lit score was in the 100's

    No idea. All I have is the word of the principal, he didn't go into specifics about the score nor were there any of those sheets with people's names on. I didn't have to sign in either.

    Was that directed at me...? In any case, back to my first question, how was everyone's interviews? Also, was anyone in the group between 9:00-10:00? Just curious as I was there.

    When Mr Handscombe came around talking to individuals, a person asked him what the total was and he said the maximum on each paper was 130 (so 130*4 = 520).

    My overall score was 418. I personally think anyone above 400 is on the safe side.

    I got 515
    How was everyone's interview?
    and one person got 535 so it couldn't have been out of 520

    Ah my bad, I (stupidly) assumed the scores also included interview scores. Derp.
