    Well while it may not be the most impressive result, I don't think it make a huge difference to whether or not you get in. From what I understood last year, the grades and ps and stuff were mainly used to decide on interviews, and then it was mainly interview performance that decided whether you'd get an offer. If your AS grades (or equivalent) and personal statement are good, and you meet the BMAT cut offs, you should be fine.
    Thank you again!

    I got an offer and met my conditions on Tuesday

    My interview was a bit bleh, had some moments where I thought I didn't really answer the questions they asked but overall I think it went well. You can find most of the stuff they'll ask you in the many freedom of information requests on their A100 course, which I had a look at beforehand and I think that really helped me figure out what exactly I wanted to say at the interview itself.

    Congratulations! That's amazing. Good luck. Thanks for the advice. I was just wondering -if you don't mind sharing- how many A*s at GCSEs did you have?

    Yes - I received confirmation that I had sent both the vaccination form and the questionnaire.

    Email the team at occupational health and they should help you!

    I was hoping to apply for 2017 entry but I am "too young" apparently and as a result will get "rejected automatically."
    All because my birthday is 1 month after the course starts. Like, how is that even my fault?!?!?!

    Why not apply to deferred entry so you will be 18 by the time you start the course in 2018?

    That's a whole year out! Just because my birthday is 30 days later. May as well apply elsewhere.

    I don't understand what difference they think 30 days will make to me as a person!?

    Applying for medicine. GCSE:4A* 6As 1B(Welsh First language) + Distinction in additional MathsAlevels:AAAA(Bio, Chem, Phys and Maths) with 7/9exams 90%+ UMS.Predictions:A*A*A*(Bio Chem & Maths)BMATopefully will get a strong BMAT! Will be revising like no other exam😂😂

    PS:
    Have been told by teachers and ex-admissions tutors that it is very strong.

    I'm already applying to Cambridge and I'm worried its dull applying to two BMAT unis? I have heard Imperial is a BMAT heavy uni? Just wondering if anyone can give me an indication of if I'd be likely to get an interview at Imperial and if so could you outline the sort of things they're looking for?

    Hii,
    I'm applying to Oxford and Imperial.
    😭🙃
    Imperial IS a BMAT heavy university. That said a score between 5.5 and 6.0, i feel would be a good score for an interview.
    Persnal statement requirements, I won't really be able to enlighten you that much, I checked the website and they list the attributes they are looking for. My #1 advice for personal statment is a niceee reflection of your experiences (but you pribs already knew that)
