    Well and truly messed that up. Never mind eh! Should I expect a confirmation email or anything once I've done the test? As I didn't get anything?

    No confirmation email, but I had my result 18h after doing the tests.

    Don't give up hope, I had answered about 40% of the numerical test and guessed alot of the verbal, because I simply didn't understand. What makes you think it went so wrong?

    Ahh just a culmination of things. Got put off by noises right at the start of my verbal and struggled to recover. You just start getting paranoid that you've lost too much time. Didn't complete the verbal, the passages of text are really hard to decipher.

    Did less than half of the numerical. On some questions I found the data so difficult to process that I just cycled through every question concerning it ha.

    Didn't know how badly I wanted it! For someone with an A in A-Level Maths and English I'm quite disappointed with myself tbh! Ah well, should count myself lucky that I have a uni place to fall back on. Some people might not even have that.

    Good luck people, priceless opportunity

    - On a side note, can't believe you got 3 rejections with predictions and GCSE's like those! Just goes to show how competitive everything seems to be nowadays.

    In my personal opinion, the tests are aimed at testing your logic and basic feel for numbers, rather than your technical knowledge in English and Maths so don't give up hope.

    They just told me they'd be in touch, no specific date. I'd guess 3-4 weeks. Must be tough for those of you with exams! What are you guys prioritising?

    Yeah, it did say only use internet explorer or that other one, tried using firefox and it worked fine, don't see why they specified for some other web browser.

    They sent me an email saying they are currently reviewing my application, and may take a few days to respond. Has anyone else had this and been successful? I'm taking anything but success from that reply

    i just got my results and am so confused.
    they emailed me saying they are reviewing my application.

    my results are so EXTREME lol.
    got 4% in Verbal
    and 85% in Numerical....

    T Score - 426 (Verbal) and 313 (Numerical)

    What does everybody thing? any chance of getting in?

    i ran out of time for the Numerical and guessed about half of them, quickly, i am now worried that they were looking for accuracy.

    Thanks for that, looked through the pages again and found it - not looking so good. Numerical 83/ Verbal 26. All I can do is sit and hope, worst thing that can happen is I get declined and go the normal uni route :/

    I am 68/39- passed.

    Why is it everyone seems to be well above average on the numerical tests?

    Because we all cheated

    Nah only kidding, did about 11/12 of the questions then saw there was 38 seconds on the clock - so clicked the most random answers possible, complete luck if anything.

    Where did you find the scores at? I got the same email but only got it today so it might not be available to view yet.
