    It's definitely with other factors considered, I got 665 in ukcat and got rejected

    But I don't understand how people with 642.5 average got interviews as well :confused: I guess they need to be a bit more clearer about their requirements

    For all those who were rejected by Manchester and yet have high-ish UKCAT scores of 650+: They score you personal statement first and if it's unsatisfactory then they reject you immediately irregardless of UKCAT score. If you pass the personal statement check then they use a UKCAT cut-off and if that is too low then you are rejected. Good luck with the other applications

    I know it sucks but on the bright side you still have 3 others (what are the others anyway) I was just just having a look at the medicine applicants stalking page for Manchester and it seems that only people that got over 660 have got interviews. But there is someone on the page with 685 that has got rejected and I also know someone that got rejected with 670. Hence it is likely the cutoff is 650-660 while taking other requirements in to account. Stay optimistic!!!

    Southampton, Glasgow, Keele, Im almost certain to get rejections for the first two - everyone who has gotten interview for glasgow has had very high UKCAT, and the more I think about it the less I think my PS was great, so SOTON out of the window. If I just got a interview from keele I would be over the moon, but who knows, fingers crossed, what about you? heard anything else?

    They are pretty clear; you must meet the academic requirements and the cut-off for the UKCAT will vary year-on-year. In addition, they require you to have provided sufficient evidence in your personal statement that you have a clear insight into medicine and it's challenges. As it happens, the UKCAT isn't that big a factor for a lot of universities; personal statement and academic criteria are often more important.

    Well don't just lose hope yet. Most people haven't even heard anything yet. But for now try to focus on your studies. I hope you hear something positive soon. Yeah I've an interview for Liverpool tomorrow so I'm just making sure I know my ps like the back of my hand

    This is the email I sent to the admission office yesterday

    Dear Sir/Madame,

    First and foremost I would like to thank you for the time you took to consider my application for Medicine (5-year MB ChB) course at your university. I was inevitably disappointed to hear that I was unsuccessful for the course. Nevertheless I would be eternally grateful if you could let me know what part of my application was not what you were looking for, so that if I re-apply I can make sure my application is what you are looking for. Once again thank you very much for considering my application and for reading this e-mail.

    Yours sincerely,

    My name
    My UCAS personal ID

    I am very surprised but they must have done something right and all you can say to them is well done and I hope they prepare for the interview properly considering they are fortunate to even get an interview.

    In order to depress me even more, Cambridge will send me 3 notices saying that I was rejected:

    1. Through the email the College sent to me.
    2. Through the post they are going to send me.
    3. Through the email from UCAS saying the application was unsuccessful.

    Gosh, only one was necessary, no need to bring me that down!

    :P

    That must suck but chin up mate. Like someone said 99% of all medic applicants get at least one rejection so just focus on what is in front of you and esp your studies.

    Despite knowing most medicine applicants are bound to get a rejection or two, that still doesn't make things any easier.
    Having received any rejections yet, though it could happen any day now by the looks of things.

    Yes I know, but a rejection is always a rejection, and it is bound to depress you, even if you were already prepared for it...

    Anyway, I just pray that at least one offer comes through the UCAS, otherwise I am in deep trouble

    My application this time last year had two rejections, but I still ended up with an offer. Things could still look up.

    From where did your rejections came from?

    And which offers did you get?

    Thanks
