I was expecting a flat out rejection, so that's a pleasant surprise. Came by email just now. :)

Also, thank you purpledot for your helpful feedback! :)
I have a 'low 2.1' and no masters - I never realised until I started applying last year that the percentage of my degree mattered. This year was my second application and I made a decision to make 3 of my 4 applications to universities using pre-selection tests.

Of course it's all very individual - some universities put more weight on undergrad results than others, take a look at Cov/War shortlisting criteria for example - a points system with different scoring for undergrad and postgrad qualifications.

I guess it's best to try and figure what each course is looking for but my advice is that if you're concerned that your academic achievements to date aren't representative of your ability, go for the selection test route (although given you have a masters with distinction, I'm not sure you need to be too concerned for most courses).

Not a great start. First time applying to Oxford but 3rd (or 4th?) year applicant. Really hoping I get some good news with the others.

Wow Oxford was unexpected, as I know last year it was 600 applications for 53 (or so) interviews. :O needless to say I am very pleased to get a second chance with them this year :D
If at first you don't succeed, try two more times so that your failure is statistically significant!

Hopeful wrote:Hi Curtisgibbins
I was given the same feedback from Bangor about publications and presentations and other applicants having a first and a PHD.
Bangor is such a small course with only 8-10 places and at least half of places are given to Welsh speakers which means there are only 4-5 English places max. Other universities obviously have more places. Purpledot's post is encouraging so I'm keeping positive (as well as obsessively refreshing my emails). I think at the end of the day course centres are looking for a mix of people for their courses so there is hope!

Hi Hopeful! I also speak Welsh fluently (which is why I thought I may be in better stead at Bangor). Although, I didn't think half the place were given to welsh speakers? I read that 1% of applications come from Welsh speakers and only after interview where two candidates are identical would the place be given to the Welsh speaker. Thank you for being hopeful though :D Maybe next year, I'm not deterred from applying to Bangor really. It sounds like a great course and my experience of the staff there so far has been excellent.
