    I can see why I didn't get an interview now.. :p:
    Some sick ******* got 90+ on the problem solving and ~87 overall...

    Edit: [email protected]! - I didn't think people that got scores like that existed. I always thought they were some kind of machine.. (Although there's no proof you're not....:holmes:)

    They didn't necessarily get 87 overall, they could have mucked up the critical thinking majorly.

    i get the impression most people did significantly better in one than the other (from looking at the graphs... you could get two scores of top 2% yet end up in th overall top <0.5%)

    Yeah I worded that wrong; I didn't mean to imply that it was the same person.

    Also, does anyone think that 60 was the cut-off point for interviews?

    Yeah, I was pretty happy with my problem-solving abilities before the test. Must've messed up quite a bit :cool: . I'm probably gonna end up reapplying next year (hopefully with solid A levels), seeing as UCAS isn't going too well :p:

    You really can't object to something like the TSA scores; if someone scores higher than you, they're better, and have more of a chance to get a place :yep: - congratz on your very respectable average!

    Also, if anyone's interested, for E&M at Keble college, the median score of those invited for interview was 66 (source)

    I got: 77.9 on problem solving, 79.9 on critical thinking and 78.8 overall. I got 100% on the 2008 one, but I didn't finish this one by miles. I had about 6 questions left at the end which I hadn't even read so just filled in boxes completely at random.

    I was mildly disappointed, fairly neutral, about that but I looked at that pdf and it looks pretty high on the graph. Weird.

    "Results in official examinations, especially GCSE, which are not at the highest level – candidates should have virtually spotless GCSE results to secure an interview." lol oxford are sounding a bit like LSE these days...

    well a test is a test, it all depends on how it goes on the day! yh i may have to do that as its not looking too promising for LSE/York/Warwick without even AS maths :/

    thank you, but for the purpose of the test i will count mine as slightly above average by going by the graphs lol

    Wow, just about everyone is above average at something at least Plus, of course, there were the essays.

    Stupid me, lost my login details, and trying to get my school to send the info to me. Does anyone know how long results are up for/when the latest registering date is? Not going to get anything until the 19th earliest, as school's finished.

    They're not terrible results, though I should have done better. Wish I knew what the cut-off point was, I'm thinking about reapplying next year...

    Pretty good! When I look at the graph that more or less puts me in the top one or two percent, ridiculous.

    As far as I know there's no absolute cut-off point (or maybe 50 or something else really low), but they take it into account heavily for interview invitations, but also look at other stuff.

    There is no cut-off score for the TSA. Applicants are ranked pre-interview according to grades, TSA mark, reference and personal statement, and ones below a certain rank are rejected.
