I'm in a bit of a muddle about how important UMS actually is... I've applied for NatSci, and my SUMS is around 85%, which I've heard isn't high enough to guarantee an interview. My GCSEs are strong (11A*s), so I was wondering if this would balance out my not-so-good UMS average? Thanks!

GCSEs won't balance out your ASs I'm afraid. SUMS is just one measure, but yes you will be at the lower end. They do view your overall application so you *might* get an Interview and then who knows.

Good luck.

NB this is an old thread for Offer holders.

Ha the UK universities are such trolls. For example, Oxford release decision on 6th however, they have it made long before that since the mail arrive on 6th - the decisions have been finalized probs weeks advance. I guess Cambridge would be the same.

The date was on some of the colleges pages, specifically Trinity and King's.

Yes, in the main they have internally made the decisions pre-Christmas... it's the Winter Pool in early Jan that means they now have a later date for all.
