    Just wondering since I did Further Maths AS and dropped it this year, do I still need to enter the raw unit marks onto the SAQ?

    Wait - raw or UMS? If UMS then you MUST declare it! Raw marks (for reformed subjects only) do not need to be included.

    Hi there,
    I've already applied for emmanuel (they have slightly lower bmat weighting) - I am an eu student. Anyway, does anyone know why does each college use the bmat score differently?

    I believe they can only give interviews after receiving everyone's BMAT score, so probably late november we will hear if we get an interview or not!

    In previous years some applicants were invited to interview before the BMAT results came out (although I think this is because they are the strongest applicants on paper)

    I saw this in a thread where guys like us were anxiously waiting for results, but a few got interviews before they found out how badly they did. Luck buggers 😂

    Good evening, y'all,
    as far as interview dates go, the exam board releases BMAT scores on Nov. 25th I believe, and they usually do interviews between 5th and 12th of December. I think that would be prudent to keep early December free just in case you get called in at short notice.

    On another note, Jesus Christ, reading all of your grades makes me think that I'm a madman for even applying!

    With love, Z

    Hey!! I believe universities get it earlier than us - 23rd I think! I think interviews depend on the college too- Clare have said 5-9 December.

    About your final point-
    A) I'm sure your grades are fab
    B) TSR is notorious for having students with disproportionately high grades/stats! Self belief is so important (I feel like a hypocrite because I know this yet worry myself about the very same issue!)

    Your stats are brilliant. Honestly, they're very good. Maybe Oxford would have been a better choice, due to their GCSE weighting. But, it all depends on your BMAT performance - perform well in that and in my opinion, it's very likely you'll get an interview
