    Hello everyone.

    I did not see a forum dedicated to this so I decided to start one! Please let me know if another one exist. I am an international applicant actually, so I don't know how much of this thread will pertain to me.

    Hopefully everyone is gearing up for the BMAT this week!! Good luck to all.

    Hey thanks for making this thread! I'm a UK student but my A-levels really suck so I'm hoping my BMAT will be good enough for them to over-look that!

    I was looking on Oxford's site for a BMAT threshold. The FAQ says the interview cutoff is after the top 40% (link), does anyone know more about this?

    Hm what would an overall score of 18.5 be? Does that mean like 7, 6.5, 5A for each of the sections or something?

    Also I e-mailed admissions specifically to ask about A-levels and all they told me is that there were no specific requirements. Looking at those states however it seems there is!

    Did any of you guys apply to Cambridge too? I thought the BMAT was horrendous, but I recently got invited to interview for Cambridge, which will be my only saving grace if my BMAT score is abysmal... Puts even more pressure on as the interview is before the results come out!!

    Cambridge does not accept international to their graduate programme. Do they not require a BMAT seeing that you already have an interview?

    Also, Congrats!!!!!
