    Oh lol I'm also from Toronto. I'm actually applying for PPE (I meant I'm also international). Hopefully we'll see each other on the plane over for our interviews.
    Whoops, sorry. And yo sick that's crazy. Yeah that would be cool but I'm still waiting to here back from Balliol if I've even gotten one. There's close no one in Toronto (that I know at least) applying outside of Canada

    A few people in my school got pre-interview rejections today for Fine Art
    Do they have any info of how many applied this year or anything do you know? Where did they apply college wise?

    15-20?! My school gets one (in to either) every few years! I guess that's the downside of a small school though.
    Yep, I'm at a very good school! There's about 160ish in every year group, hbu?

    More like 30 in a year although, it means smaller classes - there are only two of us in Economics and this isn't uncommon!

    Do you go to a private school?!? I can't imagine having only 30 in a year! Class sizes are still relatively small at 5-15 max though

    Yep, it is private! It's quite claustrophobic at times but I guess the quick marking-turnarounds and attention make up for it... Still, it'll be nice to go uni where classes are bigger!

    ( I hope we aren't annoying other people in this thread:-)! )

    It's nice having various class sizes as in my French class there's only 5 of us so we can't really hide if we don't know the answers! However history is a bit bigger so I can just avoid answering questions if I'm having a bad day.

    If other people find this conversation annoying- then sorry! But nvm aha

    I'd say I'm in a similar position - 2 in Econ, 6 in History and 14 in Biology. Biology is my 'rest' lesson a positive of a small school is that we each have our own (albeit small) desk in sixth form!

    What kind of schools are other people from? It'd be interesting to find out!

    Me too! What's your college and stats?

    BMAT was ok - surprisingly, I found S1 ok but S2 I ran out of time. Which essay Q did you answer?

    Oh yes, and the wait is torture...
    I answered the first question, "All knowledge is good." I think I chose the wrong one. it's just going to put me at a disadvantage.
    *sigh*
    Although I'm very much surprised that section 2 did not have crazy physics questions unlike those in the past papers.

    I'm applying to Lady Margaret Hall. I'm doing IB and predicted 42/45.

    What about you?

    In French though there's only about 3 of us who actually contribute so it feels even more daunting when there's a tough question, so sometimes I have to take one for the team do you mean you have your own desk in that you always have lessons in the same classroom so you sit at that desk, or is there a common room thing where you have a private desk? Either way, that certainly is a benefit of a smaller school!

    I come from a comprehensive state school with 1200 students, 180 in the sixth form. Sometimes it means you have to work to get heard but I don't mind that too much

    That must help your learning though! I mean in the sixth form centre we all have our own small desk thing. It's cute to personalise but I spend more time in the common room nowadays - although lots of students use theirs all day :-)

    Wow - that is huge! I guess it means you socialise more and get a broad choice of friends though? :-)

    Christ the Cambridge lot are annoying. Went on their chat to see if any offers had came through and stepped mid way through a full blown argument about not bothering going to an interview if your poor as it's just a waste of money (?!), and noped straight out of there..

    I answered question 2 - the one stating that assertions made without evidence can just as well be refuted. I thought it was quite a nice question once you got your teeth stuck into it. I thought it was a shame that there were few physics questions in S2 as they always lower the boundaries! I still ran out of time though...

    I was going to go for LMH too but went for Oriel in the end after I visited.

    Stats:

    GCSE: 7A*3A (not great for medicine unfortunately)
    AS-level: AAAC (chemistry, physics, maths, further maths respectively)
    A-level predicted: A*A*A*C
    A-level achieved: A* (biology, Y11)

    Best of luck with your application.
