    Congrats; that's awesome!! :banana: If you don't mind me asking, when did you attend the Open Day?

    I took the test in December and the thing that bugs me is that UCL doesn't send regular e-mail updates, so I'm totally in the dark-- I have no idea how close I am to an offer/rejection

    Thank you!

    I went to the open day and did the test on 9th December.

    I wasn't expecting to hear back until March :lol: good luck with your application

    I wouldn't worry too much! Last year I had my interview early december and only received my offer mid-january because UCL closed for christmas holidays so they should be getting back to you in the next few weeks.
    Best of luck for your application!

    Good that I'm not the only one hahah--I felt so good after my test (I took it at home because I'm an international student), but now I'm not so sure anymore haha. Maybe I did some stupid calculation mistake and messed up my maths response or I just wrote much less than the average applicant who took the online test (I'm not a fast typer lol)

    Which pathways are you planning on doing?

    I don't know if they give the same questions on every test day but all I can recommend is to make sure you've revised everything you've done at A2 in your sciences and maths!! Good luck 😎

    Ahh, thank you!! We've only covered C3 so far at A2 :O and as for sciences, I only do Chem, which we've done a lot off but I don't how helpful it will be They told us our lecture, will be something to do with natural hazards? Also, can we use the internet during the test? Also how much of it can you do, based around the lecture they give you?

    Don't worry, I think the maths we did was only based on C3!! Our lectures were on a different topic though so I can't be sure as for the sciences, I do maths and further maths (did chemistry at AS but dropped it) and I managed but I did struggle because knowledge of A2 chemistry or physics was definitely expected!! I think I only got away with my poor answer to my second question because of double maths 😂 Out of the four sciences and engineering questions, the first was a compulsory maths one and the other three were definitely based on chemistry and physics so I would look over that a bit too. Don't worry about swotting loads because it's not the sort of test you can revise for and just throw facts at them, it's more of a "can you apply scientific thinking to these situations" and on ours they intentionally talked about an area of science not covered by a level syllabuses so that we were on even ground. Yeah you can use the Internet which I found helpful in my minor question (cultures) because I was able to look up quotes from a book I was writing about, but I didn't use it in the other questions - there wasn't time!! Good luck and enjoy the day at UCL!! Are you going to firm them?

    Sorry that's a long one!! Trying to give fair advice without giving too much away is harder than it sounds 😂😂 but I emailed in advance to ask about chemistry and physics because I don't do them so I don't feel too bad about it!!

    I have my test day on wednesday! I'm majoring in societies and minoring in sciences & engineering.

    Please could those who've already been to the test day please let me know what the dress code is? I'm not sure if it's smart in the way an interview would be or not as it's more of an applicant's day.

    If anyone could help, I'd be really grateful!

    (this is definitely the most important question to ask )
