    Same! The wait is literally killing me 😭. I applied for history, what about you?
    Oh right, History and English for me To be honest, based on my mediocre feeling performance in the HAT I'm not holding out a whole load of hope.

    But there is no similar information provided - for whatever reason. You should check out the page anyways.

    Yup staying up and hoping servers don't go down before I see my results lmao
    Yeah I just remembered about that email, ugh still have to wait for so long to get an interview. What actually takes them so long? All they need to do is add BMAT results to GCSE scores and rank them, only takes a couple of hours at most to do that and give the best 400 interviews, the next 25 slots who get reviewed can't really take over a week, can it?
    Yeah I hope the servers don't crash either!

    Hell if I know, maybe shortlisting isn't that automatic and takes longer. Especially for medicine.

    but they have an equation they plug the numbers into, it can't really take that long to put some numbers into an equation can it?

    how do you work out your contextualised gcse score?
    No clue, I remember seeing it somewhere on the admin.ox.ac.uk site but can't find the link again, it was some equation relating to your school's relative performance and your number/proportion of A*s.

    Not that it's relevant to me, my straight As Scottish N5s don't count at all for Oxford. Instead they double up my BMAT score, which is completely unfair because BMAT is much harder to get full 100% on whereas someone with like 11A*s at GCSE will get an easy 100% and possibly get a better ranking than me despite doing worse in BMAT.

    Basically it could be 0.74 * 65% + 0.74 * 65% (me), vs 0.74 * 45% + 0.74 * 100% (some English guy)

    ahhh, i dunno how well my school is rated, i got 11A*s 1A but i dunno how they would rate it, my school has a 75% 5 A*-C grades so dunno how that compares?

    Thank you, I hadn't seen that! Last year they were pretty slow with replies, so I'm praying we won't have to wait too long😁
