Oxford Biomedical Sciences Applicants for 2016 Entry Watch
I haven't found a lot of oxford biomed applicants on here so I made a thread for us to all chat
How did everyone else react to their BMAT results?
i've applied for univ college
Has anyone else applied to Keble??
Not me, I applied to St John's
Keble is supposed to be pretty good for science though right?
I've got a friend who went to Keble who invited me to go and spend the day in college with her a couple of years ago and I just loved it - it's also really close to pretty much all of the science departments and libraries, which is always helpful
My BMAT scores are bang-on average according to the graphs, so I don't know how good my interview chances are, but I remain hopeful Apparently Wednesday (2nd Dec) is that deadline for people to make requests on the BMAT or something like that, so we'll start hearing back from colleges as of then.
The Oxford system is designed in such a way that it doesn't really matter whether you apply to an over- or under-subscribed college as far as your chances of admission are concerned. Everybody who's shortlisted is allocated to a second, random college for their subject anyway and the pooling system ensures that the best applicants get a place regardless of whether they applied for a competitive college or not.
