Hi you all,
I appreciate your comment and sorry about these rumour things! I wasn't sure about them and that's for clearing everything up!
Yep, i'm totally aware that Emma is not the best but overall, I think it seems to be stereotyped as the "workaholics" of cambridge, and it consistently topsof the tompkin's table.
I remember someone on either this forum or another mentioned once that the admissinso tutor at Emma said, an average Emma medic has 96-7% UMS on average and their BMAT are consistently high (around 6+ in sec 1 and 2) - that's pretty high isn't it? Compared to other colleges (a friend of mine asked about St John's and said its average is 94%, slightly lower).
And I know UMS and BMATs are not the be all and end all, but it does show something, right? that's also why I'm wondering whether it might be slightly "luckier" if one applied to a relatively "less academic" college.
