    Congrats mate! Do us international proud . With an insane BMAT like yours you have a awesome chance of being one of those 3 haha.

    I'm pretty confused why I got rejected from Ox before even an interview. Another international who got an interview had a score of 73.5% and I have 73.2% so I guess I was just under the cutoff or something

    Thanks man It's a shame that you got rejected before interview with some crazy other stats like your SATs and your SAT subject scores, really bad luck I guess.. You got an interview for imperial though! Thats really awesome, good luck there (not that you'll need it), I'm sure you'll do well!

    Haven't heard anything form imperial those of you who got imperial interviews, were you guys in band 1? I think i'm probably in band 2 (although my section 2 and 3 are definitely band 1 ) so hopefully somewhere down the line i get one!

    (Have Bristol + UCL interviews, but haven't heard from Imperial + Birmingham)
