The rules changed in 2014 (for Rule 5 & below). The cut off for this school is typically around Rule 4 or 5, so although you can use the Calculator, don't trust the results with all your heart. If you qualify under Rules 1-4, the results will be a reasonable guide. If you're applying under Rule 5, 6, 7 etc then (a) we don't fancy your chances and (b) there just isn't any data to shed any light on how things will pan out. Ask the school for their advice. Good luck, chaps.
