Good luck guys. If today (a week earlier than usual I add!) expect emails at around 5pm on the dot - pretty sure admin team just want to send and switch off the computers for the weekend!

Grads generally score lower on the BMAT than undergrads - after all we've been out of the game for a while on AS level physics etc. Whilst scores were higher last year, far more weighting is given to the application as a whole. If anything, BMATs may be more of a factor for offers post interview!
ps. On a less positive note. I have had a barrage (talking 10-15 separate user DM's including several from this thread) asking inappropriate questions specifically about previous interview questions, interviewers and earlier on in the cycle asking me exactly what to write in the SAQs. I am happy to offer general advice but everyone should know the rules and so I will continue to ignore these kinds of requests.

Do invitations to interview continue over the weekend?
They didn’t in the 2019/2020 cycle. I think they aim to send all emails out at once.

6.2, 5.4, 4.0A. You?
Oh no! I seem to have forgotten!


Spoiler:
Show
4.6, 4.4, 3A I said it earlier and just want to forget about it completely :borat:
I just hope they consider how much scuffed this year was and I'm praying they acknowledge the E.C. form I submitted that covers the 5+ minutes I lost due to technical difficulties and the 5+ hours it took the begin the exam.

I also have not heard anything yet but I did get a reply from admissions earlier today saying they'd endeavour to contact shortlisted candidates today late afternoon/early eve. I was thinking they might be delayed as there's a lot to talk about with the BMAT debacle.
Not sure if they will also contact non-shortlisted applicants at the same time.
Hope I've done enough

Do they usually contact everyone at the same time?

I honestly have no idea, I would imagine they prioritise contacting shortlisted candidates and then would maybe keep some people in reserve who they don't contact?? No idea to be honest. I'm hoping people will post on here if they hear something..

I don't think Oxford reserve some people to contact for shortlisting later, they have normally shortlist about 80-90 candidates and then they offer about ~35 for 30 places. So there's not really any reason to keep candidates on reserve and shortlist later because they still have to cut down the shortlist to offer holders anyway after interview?

Would people mind updating if they receive an email? Just so those of us know when they've gone out

Agreed. Although they did say 'hope to' send out communication this evening so it's not unlikely we hear nothing tonight.
