    Only found out about the LNAT cause of the threads on here, or else I would not have done enough practice, and who knows, may have been enough not to get an offer/get invited to interview... All hypothetical of course- but doing LNAT increased my Confidence...

    Nah not at all! I only practised with the LNAT because the specimen was weirdly easy (but also really fun)

    I was slightly out:

    Last year 4307 offers of which 527 were mathmos = 3780 non maths.
    3457 acceptances (256 mathmos) = 3201 non maths.

    So 579/3780 = 15%

    But still... 85% take up their place.

    If 4307 offers were made and of those 4307 offers 3457 were accepted, wouldn't it be 80% that take up their place?

    :yep:

    And, DamnDaniel2 that also means the offer:acceptance rate for maths alone is a miserly 48% vs 85% for all other courses. Pity the STEPpers...

    For the multiple choice questions yes, not sure about the Section 2s.
    Even on the multiple choice stuff it would be good to actually be able to show my teachers how hard it was and see if they can get any right. They really didn't understand why I was so exhausted afterwards haha

    I'd hope they could get the multiple choice right since it's only GCSE level material! The real challenge was doing it under pressure in the small amount of time allowed.

    Yeah although I'd say the NSAA had a few AS/A level bits on it as well, even in section one. Linked to GCSE, but taking it a bit further. and I'd make them do it to time as well 😂😂

    Hello,
    This will be a slightly odd message regarding concers that have been eating away at me.

    I'm not sure if anyone who got an offer as a mature student or a compsci applicant possibly even both could give me some advice. I have some questions in regards to the whole application and interview methods that i was hoping someone could possibly help me out. Basically generic questions in a sense but it's something that's been worrying me for a bit. Hope you are all doing well.

    How do people also cope if no one near you believes in you? I have no support network whatsoever and because I'm a mature student I'm not at school so i don't have that either.
    If anyone can reply either from a mature student or a compsci student or just advice I'd be very thankful.

    Also I'm Glen! Hello everyone.

    I'd prefer not, sorry. Let's await an AT giving the "all clear".

    I think the thing we signed said either August or September- obviously may differ with each college, but that's off the top of my head- might be remembering wrong too

    Last year's papers will be released later this spring on the website to give prospective applicants the chance to see them. When they're published then I think it's fine for them to be discussed here or anywhere else.
