    You should have applied to Imperial. Your stats are too good for just Warwick or Bham

    Are you implying that Warwick or B'ham are bad unis? Those are both fantastic Russell Group unis, especially for science subjects. So no, I wouldn't say his stats were 'too good' for them. Gosh, I really dislike university elitists

    Okay thanks, I just asked cause I had a mock interview today and they were the questions that I felt the least confident with. How are you feeling about the interviews, are yours next week? x
    Those types of questions (if asked) are just to make you feel a bit more comfortable before the interview begins. Just be honest and say what's on your mind (e.g. you chose Oxford because of it's unique tutorial style teaching, etc.) because there really is no right or wrong answer

    Why didn't he apply to Eton College, everyone knows it's the best university in the UK so if his stats are that good, surely he'll be able to get into them and not peasantly Oxford/Warwick/Birmingham

    Thanks, I don't mind too much
    Np, they weren't very good actually so I was expecting the rejection
    5.2, 4.9, 3A XD
    Rejected too :/ - hardly surprising after 4.2, 4.9, 2A. I can't believe I screwed up quite that badly.

    Best of luck with your other med schools!

    I'm not implying that they are bad unis. I'm not a university elitist. I know that they are fantastic, but with his stats, he probably could have easily secured a place at Imperial, especially since he qualified for the BMO and so is obviously very good at maths (thus would do well at the interview). His stats ARE too good for Bham or Warwick for physics.

    With regard to piercings at interview, idk how oxford would feel about it...I imagine that they'd be fine, but I always feel like at any interview, it could just colour someone's judgement of you depending on their personal views, so maybe have it off for the interview? That's generally my rule for interviews, just because it's important to pull out all the stops and have no regrets.

    We can form an Oxford medicine rejects group
    The email they sent explaining almost makes it worse, doesn't it? XD how are you feeling about the rejection?
