    Just out of interest, did you bother sitting the UKCAT then?

    And I'm really pleased this thread has been made, I'd looked for one before and not found it.

    UCL was an extremely last minute choice for me (as in, the night before submitting my form I didn't have a 4th choice and I hadn't even looked at UCL since I didn't want to apply to more than 1 BMAT uni and then my mom suggested it and it seemed to fit my stats pretty well and be a pretty great uni/course and I just went for it... so, yeah) I just really hope with BMAT that the holistic thing is not a joke because wow it did not go super great. (Also, if I somehow managed to get in I would have to take the language modules as I don't have one at GCSE which is also slightly worrying me)
    Yeah I did lool
    The language course sounds intense :')
    The holistic thing is really good, it's a fairer system

    Na, I just applied to the unis I liked the most
    I can't really tell how it went, hoping it was ok What about you??
    Didn't go well at all to be honest, especially section 1. But I can't do anything to change that now so I'm just chilling.

    Ah, that must be annoying to not even use the test.
    Yeah, that's why I'm worried about it. Ah, well, it's not like I've even got an interview yet.
    Fingers crossed that they won't be too harsh with the BMAT...

    It just means a subject different from the compulsory science subjects. I imagine anything but General Studies and Critical Thinking that isn't science-related would count. So it would be things like history, geography, computing, economics and so on.

    Not yet and hoping not to be asked either because I didn't get proper reference letters. I could still get them but it would be embarrassing emailing them after all this time asking for a letter. I think they do a sample of applicants each year and probably don't do it unless you get invited to interview. I mean, why would they care whether somebody they're rejecting anyway has done the work experience they've claimed to have done? :dontknow:

    I have, but looking on last year's applicant thread it looks like they just do spot checking of random applicants.

    Of my choices, Bristol and Cardiff have recently invited people to interview, according to the people on the applicants' threads for those schools. I haven't got one. :/
