Context: Computing Cambridge, Taking a gap year with A* A* A B in hand.
Okay, so I've received my TMUA and i've quite frankly done horrendous. I've scored a 3.3 on average. I'm not sure what came over me in during the test but I'm really not an idiot. Perhaps it was the time pressure, not sure.
Regardless, I've received an interview. NOT SURE HOW! But I have, perhaps it was my personal statement?
My question is in two parts:
1. If I am invited to an interview and do relatively amazing will they overlook my poor scores and I have a decent chance?
2. Did they invite me to an interview already knowing my scores or will they look at this after?
I understand they look at the application holistically but some posters on TSR have said that's just something people to say to ease people who don't have a chance. So please be honest if that's the case.
Thanks in advance for your responses!
