    how come you applied for biomed as well
    It was more of a 5th choice since my personal statement is suited more towards physics but i have strong interests in biology and biomimetics so thought that i would try this course as it looked really interesting instead of appying for manchester

    That's a shame about the delay, a piece of advice I can give about the tricky physics questions is think aloud. Often they don't want you to solve it, rather they just want to see how you think and your ability to think outside the box with unfamiliar concepts.

    Exeter looks like a great uni. On my interview they didn't ask challenging question but more asked me about the areas within physics that interested me. My interviewer asked if I had heard or read anything about quantum or particle physics as I had mention that those are my favourite aspects of physics at the moment in physics. The whole day was very relaxed.

    I think they said they usually give about 140 offers but my numbers could be wrong. They aid that everyone they interview had the grades and were shortlisted. About 4 weeks after I got an offer. I hope this helps and good luck with the interview, just don't worry.
    Thank you both, i did the pre-university physics course at exeter and i've also done an Open University physics short module so hope they talk to me about this as i will be able to speak confidentially on these topics. Would i be correct in assuming that its dress smart/casual more than smart?

    Yh smart casual. Although some would turn up in full on suits but smart casual is fine.

    Yeah, I did. Would have insured them but the offer was the same as Cambridge's.

    To those applying to Oxford, good luck for tomorrow!

    They've just posted the report online, and the PAT cutoff was 68, quite high!

    HELLO PHYSICISTS!
    Time to share what you're wanting your future to be and how you intend to get there!
    Here are some quick questions to get people started:
    • What is your name?
    • What universities are you interested in?
    • What are your subjects and hopeful grades for AS and A2?
    • How many prospectuses have you had all together now?
    • Any female physicists out there?

    ~~~
    I'm Lucinda. Girly here (although not that girly) I'm only in year 11 but I've applied to take Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths for A levels. I have decent grades at GCSE (mostly As some A*s) and I hope to get good grades in AS and A2, I have already started looking at the courses to familiarise myself with the content. I am planning on applying to: Oxford (might as well take a shot), UCL, Imperial College London, King's College London and Queen Mary's University of London.

    You should consider applying to Cambridge!*

    Maybe wait until you're doing A Levels because they're quite unpredictable I've got a friend with amazing GCSE grades who's not doing great at A Level and I've got similar GCSE grades to you but my A Levels really improved on my GCSE results! Waiting to hear back from Oxford... 15% success rate... 39% got an interview... It's tough, I'll probably be rejected

    I've looked at Cambridge but the courses don't really appeal to me. Also Oxford has the Bodleian Library!

    I hope you do all right! You might as well apply; if you don't you've 0% chance of getting in! I have a long time to decide I just like to know my options.

    25.3% success rate for NatSci at Cambridge and they interview pretty much everyone

    That's fair enough, personally I like the idea of getting to do a bit more Chemistry and something else

    But the Cambridge University Library!

    That would be nice! What course are you planning on taking because I've seen a few universities where you can take an MSc which is a four year course and it involves all the BSc stuff as well. I thought you had to take a Bsc before an MSc.
