    we are a paranoid bunch and hence we choose not to disclose our bmat results in fear of being tracked by the uni :laugh:

    however if you look at our past posts you may be able to find them :ninja:

    Lol I am sure no one is going to get tracked. Forums are made for people to discuss such things. No admissions tutor is free enough to hunt and reject people on forums for discussing their bmat results.

    out with it TP, we all want to know your section scores. and by "all" i mean "me"

    @Baki, maybe so, but S2 is a poor indicator of one's scientific ability :p:

    It's a shame for both of us Cambridge think otherwise :cry:. It's so true though... Hopefully they take BMAT along with everything else to make a decision, and don't deselect based on it.

    :puppyeyes:

    If I get an offer, I'll tell you my scores :p: Otherwise the secret goes with me to the grave :p:

    You guys know mine. But I thought cambridge think section two is the best part of bmat and the best predictor of success at cam.

    Well, I don't think it is personally, though statistics would prove me wrong.

    Unless your S2 is ridiculously high or ridiculously low, I don' think it really shows much.

    I did the sciency question for S3, so hopefully that one will count in my favour slightly.

    some colleges worship the bmat (caius and emma) because statistically those who score higher in S1 and S2 are more likely to achieve firsts.
    which is why i'm f*****d.

    The thing is... you can't tell which criterion Cambridge puts more weight on.

    I know they take into consideration everything, e.g. GCSEs, AS UMS, reference, PS, interview performance, BMAT scores, BMAT essay... etc...

    But in what order of importance? :p:
