    Lady Maragaret Hall How about you?

    I've got interviews from my other three medical schools, so the wait for Oxford is doubly frustrating :lol: Where else have you applied?
    Yeah, I'm trying not to think about the BMAT results D: How do you think yours went?
    LMH is really pretty! I chose Oriel in the end just because it was my favourite after visiting a couple of times.

    I also applied to UCL, Imperial and King's (I'm doubting 3 BMAT was a good idea after the paper!). No interviews yet, most are waiting for BMAT and King's are being quite slow... How about you?

    I seem to have gone oppositely to most of the cohort - I liked S1 and think I did ok, but I probably made a buggery of S2 (badly ran out of time, so guessed at least three and made two stupid errors which I am kicking myself about now) and the essay was quite good. I answered Q2, the Christopher Hitchens' quote on assertions and evidence. The title is a blur now.

    How was your BMAT and what are your stats?

    Past threads seem to suggest that anyone who had to take the TSA can probably expect an invite in the latter-half of next week (PPE applicant here). How did you think your TSA went? ( nhabib3 )
    EEEH I screwed up the essay! The first half I think i could score 60-65

    Queen's for Oriental Studies! Where have you applied? What subject?
    I nearly applied to Queen's for Oriental Studies but I changed my mind after I stayed there for a choral scholarship audition. Which language have you applied for? I've applied for Japanese at St John's.

      I'm sorry you made such poor life choices

      A bad decision at 17 shouldn't condemn you to 3 years in a University like Oxford :console:/QUOTE]

      Thanks for coming.
      You have to rely on an old man to think of your arguments for you? Typical toff

      Tbf, I've toned down my posting knowing that an imminent rejection is on its way.

      Drat, I got 118 on PHYA1... I wish I'd smashed dem potatoes (what looked like a Maris Piper). I got my paper back for unit 1, got full marks on particles and quanta, got to electricity and I'd dropped at least half the marks.


      Meanwhile, following the Greenpeace protesters outside AQA headquarters, the board look for a creative renewable energy source...

      Ok - I have a question in regards to interviews/offers. I'm not quite sure how offers are given out. So you have your interview(s), and say they went really well. Will you be given an offer based on this? there are so many limited spaces I'm afraid that even if I succeed at interview I still won't get a place. Does this make sense? Word has spread that I have an interview, and whilst people are congratulating me, I can't help but think in the end most people are rejected. So I don't want everyone to have high expectations if I do end up with a rejection post-interview.

      Or does it work that once you get an interview, if you do really well you'll get an offer? Or is the chance of getting an offer still slim even after a great performance? This is long-winded but I need to clarify. Thanks!

      What stitched me as well as the mA was that stupid parallel resistance where I remember doing 1/(R+R...) rather than (1/R)+(1/R)...

      Anyway, best of luck with your application, you deserve a place with those scores.

      Wow, congrats!

      Does you 'just finding out' mean the email was sent to you just now or you've only just checked your emails? Seems late for it to come out

      Why does the Cambridge part have so many more posts ... even tho we have more applicants.
      It's always been like that. idk.

      I could put a cheap jibe about Cambridge being more sociable but I won't.
