    Well my reinterviews seemed to go better this time in my opinion. My subject interview felt perfect (probs wasn't lol 🙄) but I really enjoyed it, many times more than my original interviews. General one was pretty good too. The interviewers said I'll probably hear on Monday. They would've loved to tell me earlier apparently but aren't allowed to *make* the decision until Saturday officially. I don't know if the good vibes at the end was something they do for all their candidates or not though so I'll not read too much into that haha!

    I totally fell in love with Selwyn overnight. It's so beautiful. Everyone is so friendly and it was very homely. I wish I'd applied there in the first place. 😊 I'm going to take me getting pooled as an intervention of fate. I really think that if I get in I'll enjoy it more there than I would've at Downing. I know that legit everyone says that when they're pooled but I mean it! I'm just praying that they take me 🙈😬

    Congratulations to everyone who got an offer today! You guys deserve it! To everyone who was rejected, just try your best to grow from the experience, there are some fantastic universities out there that will gladly snap you up! 😊🎉
    Sounds like it went really well and you thoroughly enjoyed it. Best wishes!

    Okay but isn't bmat about medicine and stuff? I wanted to prepare for NSAA but I just couldn't find any resources for it.
    Your NSAA specimen paper was made up of old BMAT questions...

    Thank you I appreciate the help a lot. Okay but isn't bmat about medicine and stuff? I wanted to prepare for NSAA but I just couldn't find any resources for it. Yeah I guess bmat is a good option as it's an admissions test made by the same board. How much time did you spend on the NSAA? Though I think the main reason for your acceptance is your 4 A*'s, as most colleges didn't put that much weightage on the NSAA and even if you hadn't done extraordinarily I reckon you'd still have gotten an offer. Did you mention that you're reapplying on the SAQ or your PS(wondering if it would be a good thing or a bad one)?
    It really is very similar (section 2 BMAT and section 1 NSAA) the only difference I would say is that BMAT is maths/chem/bio/phys whereas in NSAA you're most likely doing a different combination

    Thanks! Here's hoping. Though I can't say I'm much of a fan of the newer colleges, in general
    Downing (Est. 1800) is a newbie too compared to most colleges...

    Yeah I suppose it does/is. 6 s.ds below the unsuccessful applicant mean still feels like a miracle tho, guess the POLAR3 flag sorted me out lol
    Stop being so humble!
    I've always thought you were a 'Cambridge material'.

    Just goes to show that Cambridge isn't about UMS averages after all, eh!?

    Good proof they look at every applicant holistically and fairly.
    Yeah, I know......

    Well, there are around 12 past papers available for BMAT Section 2 so I completed all of those (missing out the biology questions, but nearly all in timed conditions) in the days/weeks leading up to the test. I didn't mention re-applying, although I think that this might be automatically flagged on your application. I focused on my experiences with my A-level subjects and how they related to the NatSci course in my PS/SAQ.

    Thank you! Nervously waiting a decision alone now haha! 🙈 I hope you aren't too upset today, you'll do just as well elsewhere I bet! (I think I read above you were rejected, if not, then sorry I'm an idiot haha)

    ALL colleges send email to international candidates today. Period.

    Check your spam tray, just in case.
