Well I only received an email saying that they have received the evidence and will make sure that the papers are attached to my application and taken into account, but that's it.

That's odd because I sent my contextual information on the 28th and they still havent got back to me. How long did they take to respond?

Hi there!

I actually do have a few questions if you don't mind answering.
1) How expensive is brighton to live in? Roughly how much do you spend a week living there including student accomodation?

2) Is Brighton culturally diverse?

3) How good are the teachers and Brighton uni in general at supporting you if you have any problems?

4) Any interview tips?

Wasn’t directed at me but I can answer number 4 as I’ve done the interview but I deferred for 2020 entry, so I’m not there yet. I found the interview quite relaxed, without saying anything specifically about questions - I would say be yourself and don’t let the way the interviewer acts put you off. Take a minute to think before answering, or just to calm yourself, and think about your answer clearly. Even if you’re not sure about your answer, say it with confidence. Best of luck!

Hi All

I see from TSR many students did badly in section 2 of BMAT ( This including my daughter who applied to BSMS). I am just wondering what you think the BMAT cut-off this year will be for BSMS. If I am not mistaken it was 16.1 last year. Do you think it will go down substantially ?
Also for applicants with WP flag is the BMAT cut off the same?

No its wayyyy lower, I am a student with WP flag and every year everyone with a WP flag (I think that means contextual student) got an interview. People got interviews with 1.0,1.0, 2C so u have nothing to worry about as even if randomly guess all the questions from section 1 and 2 and try a little in section 3 u will get an interview. If there aren't too many people with WP flags this year ie there isnt more than 30% then your daughter could pretty much sleep in the exam and get an interview

I did get a confirmation that they've received my contextual evidence. However, how will we know when it gets approved? Have they given you an email saying that your contextual evidence is good enough or just a confirmation of receipt?

Yh I only got an email by Jamie (the guy on the phone) saying that it's gud and he will make sure that it is attached to my profile and so on. But i didn't get a confirmation saying they have taken it into account right now or any recent updates, I was always worried that they something might go wrong. I suppose there isn't much we can do at this point since they can't really confirm it as well, u just have to have your fingers crossed and hope it goes well. The more contextual data points you have the lower the chance of something going wrong.

Given that BMAT results are not out until the 22nd, I think it would be safe to assume so.
