    What volunteer work did you do exactly and how did you get it especially in a clinical research institute?
    I'm from a 3rd world country. Things are different here 😅

    Take your UKCAT in the summer and BMAT will be in November.

    Honestly 1000+ hours or 20+ hours makes very little difference as it's all about reflection in your PS than quantity so focus on this when you are writing it.

    With Oxford you have the GCSEs so it's now down to the BMAT. People say it has some elements of the UKCAT but I don't see it.

    You're not really helping yourself by checking portal every day and stressing about it lol. We could have to wait until January/February for a response.
