Chances for Bristol , Southampton , Edinburgh , UCL , and Leeds ? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am new to this site and I do not know how normal is to ask about chances (I come from college confidential where it is pretty usual) , I know that nobody can tell me my exact chances , but I am looking only for oppinions from those who may know people who got into these universities and who may know their achievements .
    So , I am from Romania and I plan to apply for Geophysics Msci at Bristol , UCL , Southampton , Edinburgh , and Leeds .
    I took the toefl and got a 111/120 .
    I also took the SAT's for USA (don't know if they are important for Uk but I had to put them on UCAS) , and got perfect score on both physics and math 2 (the harder one) and on the SAT 1 I got 1450/1600 (top 4% in world) where I also got perfect score on the math section .
    Regarding my academics , I have participated at more STEM olympiads (biology,physics,math) but I got the best results at the geography olympiad where I got to the nationals every year since high school started (I am now in 12th grade) and this year I got the second place .In the 10th and 11th grade I qualified for the eliminatory stage for the international geography olympiad and always got up to the last stage . I am also part of an elite team of geographers in my city and in a excellence math team . I have mentioned all of these things (beside the USA exams ) in my personal statement , and I would like to know if this is enough to get a place in these universities .

    Oh , and for my bacalaureate exams (the national exams in my country) I expect to get at least 9.5/10 in math and physics (equivalent to A* in A levels), and at romanian God knows because I hate it (that's why I want to get into USA or UK)

    Thanks in advance and sorry if this is an inappropriate question for this site .
