    Oh god fingers crossed - may I ask your stats? (e.g. GCSE/AS grades, UKCAT etc)
    Sure. I dont have any AS grades because reforms, but for GCSE's I got 8A*s and 1A. My UKCAT was abysmal lmao, 630 average and band 2 sjt. I was hoping bmat would be the saving grace but from the looks of it nope

    How did the BMAT go? I thought section 2 was so much harder than past papers.
    I found section 1 the worst, especially the long data questions. I'm hoping I didn't fall for all the tricks in section 2

    BMAT was terrible, in my opinion; the problem is that because it's standardised you never know!! We may have all done really well. This part is torture 💔

    Last year's thread people got called for interview before BMAT results...
    I heard they score applications like:

    1: strongly suggested to interview regardless of BMAT

    2: unlikely to interview regardless of BMAT

    3. May interview depending on BMAT

    I think it's all down to the college really but 90% people get interviewed anyways.

    And there's always that chance that I'm in the 10% 🙁

    Not really unless you don't meet the minimum requirements that they've listed on the site (which I'm sure you will have by a large margin). Focus on nailing that interview and you'll be fine

    When do the colleges typically give out their invitations to interview? Before or after we get our BMAT results?

    From what I've heard, typically after they get them. They get our BMAT results slightly earlier than we do though, on the 23rd

    You're studying medicine at the best place in England!
    I would say that's Oxford. They've ranked number 1 in the world for medicine repeatedly in the last 6-7 years.
