    Now that the admissions tests are over all we can do is wait for the colleges that we applied for to decide if they want to interview us.

    Please specify if you're international and which course/college you have received the interview at please!

    Usually a couple of weeks or so before the interview. EU/Internationals tend to get a bit more notice.

    I would say ok. but I screwed up the ENGAA so I'm pretty sure I won't get admitted considering my country is oversaturated with talent and I'm pretty sure they did way better than i

    I guess it's hard to tell. Not a single person on this site has been positive about either the ENGAA or the NSAA.
    Good luck regardless!

    I'm waiting for Gonville & Caius.

    I found the ENGAA awful so don't feel too bad; hopefully if everyone thought it was difficult they'll make more allowances.

    Even so the admissions process is, as I'm sure you've heard many times before, holistic.

    Never got to visit any of the colleges and did not have a lot of time to research each individual one either. Had a few looks at Google Images and Pembroke looked nice so I chose that, lol.
