    I’ve finished my test a few hours ago. Sections I chose were 1(math), 2(physics), and 5(advanced math&physics)

    From the experience of solving the past paper 2016, I thought my math (section 1) was okay and physics and advanced math&physics needed more efforts since I got 15, 7, and 7 respectively for the past paper.

    However, today, I screwed up my math…

    For the first 25 minutes, I was nervous and psyched out at the test, and only solved 6 questions properly in math.

    I tried to change some environments so just I turned to the physics section without finishing the math section.

    Luckily, I successfully awakened myself and the physics section was pretty manageable.

    so was advanced math&physics. I did much better than I did on the past paper I think.

    Then I looked at a clock, I noticed that I only had a few minutes left for my math section

    And thus I started to solve&guess (basicially guessing) for about 4 questions in the math section, and for the other 8 questions, I just guessed.

    And paper 2 was pretty nice I think

    Sorry for whining

    So I was stressed and regretted for a couple hours, and I just realized that I need to be more practical and think about my future right now.

    Will I be interviewed with decent personal statement & reference, okay IB predicted grades (41) and highschool gpa, and NSAA with bad math, good physics & advanced math-physics?

    And since I am quite confident with the interview since im doing some advanced univ level stuff outside school, if I do great in the interview, is it possible to be accepted?

    Do interviewers ask about my NSAA during the interview? (eg, why’d you get so low in math)

    PLUS: plz don't discuss about questions.

    Well it’s good you found section 2 good, I found one question in section 2 good, another one went tits up. Considering they interview around 75% of applicants, you should get an interview. As to whether you will get an offer or not, who knows. That’s a lottery even if you get 100%, people still don’t get offers who ace the NSAA. Also, when do we find out about interviews??

    They might (not like that though - but they may go through one of your question/answers).

    An interview is still likely. And the NSAA is just one part of the holistic assessment of your application.
