Yes! I submitted it on Sunday and my school approved it (?) yesterday, and so far I've got acknowledgement emails from Royal Holloway, York & Cambridge, so at the moment I'm trying to figure out the SAQ haha.
What about you?

Ooo - super similar to me then. I am applying for Leed, Queens Cambridge, Exeter, Bristol and Durham. This year's LNAT has seemed a little weird among a lot of people - I wouldn't worry too much. Cambridge is great anyway, hence, why I am applying haha so good decision.

Same situation happened to me last year! I really messed up on the LNAT but I still applied for Oxford anyway but I really should’ve applied for Cambridge instead like you did aha
