    What do you think the chances are that everyone on the post interview hold list will be given an offer?:

    In recent years everyone who's been on post interview got an offer in the end. But this year they've had so many more applicants it's hard to tell. What was your UKCAT by the way?

    I'm assuming you have a Conditional offer?
    I would apply in case you miss the conditions of your Firm offer. But you don't have to do it today! You have until the 8th of August!
    thank you! yep conditional offer is it first come first served in accommodation or like a lottery?

    Wait listers are ranked by UKCAT and offers follow that ranking

    hey there, no i already have an offer but i have put bsms as my insurance choice and received an email telling me to apply for accommodation so i was wondering if it's first come first served in accommodation and whether i do need to apply for it as it's my insurance choice if you see what i mean

    Yeah I believe it is first come first served basis - unless you have special circumstances i.e disabilities in that case you get priority. But bare in mind that medicine offers are given before other offers (generally) so we get a few more days to have a look at the halls and apply; also BSMS students are GUARANTEED a place at the halls (might not be your first choice though).
    I'm not 100% how it will work for you, but I'm assuming you should apply and then if you meet the conditions of your Firm offer you just call BSMS accommodation and cancel your accommodation contract. If I were you I would drop them and email, just to be sure.
    Hope this helps.

    Ahh I hear back next week!
    I'm on the hold list too, if their meeting is tomorrow do you think they will let us know tomorrow, as in that's why they gave us a specific date? or do you think it will take a while to process through ucas so maybe tuesday/wednesday? xx

    I hope they give us our replies by tomorrow, if what people are saying and that it is ranked only by UKCAT then it shouldn't take long after their meeting.

    hmmm i reread the hold list email and it says that the meeting on the week 'commencing the 23rd' so that doesn't mean specifically the 23rd and also it says we will find out the 'end on april', i don't know if the 23rd counts as the end hopefully really soon though! Also the UKCAT thing, i'm not sure if that's true cause when i called admission they said it was other stuff aswell that is considered so i don't think its a numerically ordered on UKCAT only.

    Oh that's annoying, I guess it will be a week of panicking when I get a new email.
    Well good luck
