    I've applied to Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds and Plymouth. Already got one rejection from Bristol so am doubting my chances so far.

    Well, now that the discussion embargo is over, the BMAT was Rubbish with a capital "R" Given up hope on Imperial and Oxford now, just going to try to get into Birmingham/Bristol.

    Hang in there usy everyone else I've spoken to found it really hard. And even so the Unis really should consider your application holistically (and it's their loss if they don't!)

    What would be required for Gold or progression to the next round? its out of 125 and the above hypothetical situation would give 85/125. I'd doubt that'd make the cut but still
    Does getting bronze/silver/gold count for anything (except maybe giving satisfaction to some people)?

    Nice! I did the same amount of questions. How confident you with your answers?

    My weakness when it comes to things like this is when I start a question I'm unable to move on until it's done , which is why I did 1-16 in order.

    I'm sorry to hear you found it tough, Usy. However, I've had mixed feelings ever since I sat my LNAT; at times I felt like I'd failed miserably and at other times I felt it might not have gone too badly after all. What I'm trying to say is, it can be difficult to judge truly how well you've done on tests like these. I am 100% that if you found it hard, everyone else will have. I wouldn't give up hope on the first two just yet, because you have a fantastic profile overall and may just surprise yourself with the BMAT.

    Thanks, it's simply so competitive it makes me wonder if I have a chance with my poor UKCAT etc.

    Thanks man I think Imperial have cut-offs for their BMAT, I honestly don't think I've met them though. Oxford look more holistically though, so you never know for them but even so, chances are slim, IMO. But thanks

    Thanks! Yeah, I guess I'll (hopefully) end up a doctor wherever I go, and I love those uni's too so we'll see.

    Thanks I hope your LNAT went well too btw! You're right though, it is hard. I pretty much guessed all questions tbh, but ah well, maybe I got lucky.
