    Hi

    I am an international student. My acads are as below

    - GCE 7A* and 1A
    - AS 4A (Chem Bio Math and Geog) and 1B (Phy)
    - A lvl Predicted 4A* (Chem Bio Math and Geog) and 1A (Phy)

    SAT 1 - 1520/1600
    SUB SAT
    - MATH 800/800
    - CHEM 790/800
    - BIO 790/800

    I did an internship over two summers at a Biochem lab and one more in a hospital and am the school Head Boy.

    I applied for MBiochem at Oxford, MChem at Imperial, UCL and Edinburgh on 7th Oct. Ack from all....very little else.

    Any views on my chances? Has anyone with similar options received any offers or interview calls? Is it true that international students get to hear later?

    Any info will help...Thanks a lot.

    Likely to be credible, but offers may take time to appear, as they have until June to reply!
