    Hey Everyone,
    I am an international student with A* in Further Maths, Maths , Chem, Bio and Phy. I also have a in AS General Paper and French. I have 2 weeks of work experience at a clinic and 5 months at an attorney’s office. I also have a BSc Honors in IT which I did because I was bored. However, I only have 8A* at o level (the maximum my school allowed me to take) and did really bad at the BMAT. Do you think I will get an interview?

    you don't have long to find out now anyway.

    How low are we talking for BMAT?

    Those grades look incredibly promising though, so it may depend on your PS

    Really bad on the BMAT 😬 i havent even finished section 1 and my essay for section 3 was awfully bad.
    I really hope I get the interview and still the probability of getting in is next to O. Cambridge take a minuscule amount of overseas students for medicine 😕

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't ~90% of applicants get an interview? Haven't looked into Cambridge much but that's a figure I've seen flying around here a lot.

    This is for uk residents from what i have read. It is much more selective for international students because there are extremely few places

    Ah I see. Well, your stats look incredible and I am wishing you all the best! At Cambridge, I hear it depends on the college so maybe look at the college websites, old threads from previous years, or some freedom of information requests (whatdotheyknow.com) to get some more information

    I have been doing just that since I butchered the BMAT. My application was allocated to Robinson College. It is one of the smaller and less rich college so logically they will not have the means to interview a lot of people and especially overseas ones who will be provided accommodation if needed. Also they require 10+ in the BMAT (section 1 and 2 combined) and thats very hard to get 😬
