    OK so all but 1000 people have been rejected so far is what i'm taking from that?

    Not too bad, I was hoping it was about 800 left but 1000 will do!

    Something like 2700-2800 I think! So actually its 1100 that havent been processed to UCAS yet ...I'm gonna stick with 1000 as it sounds nicer

    So a 30% chance here on out...

    I'd be surprised if they told us - bet it'll be a 'we aren't 100% sure on numbers' type of response
    If I ask again later on I should know roughly what percent of the remaining candidates have been rejected.

    I think someone earlier in this thread said that graduates aren't rejected until March. Is that all grads or just those who were interviewed? If it's all, that could account for quite a few. Anyone know?

    The graduates that weren't interviewed were rejected in December.

    I lost the link to the selectors handbook again *flails* pls repost??

    I had been avoiding counting my points, because grads only hear in March, be it an offer or a rejection, we don't have to go through thus awful process of feeling it may be a rejection every day, we know when the guillotine will fall. Now I kind of feel with a week left that I cant relax, I NEED TO COUNT
    haha you finally succumbed! I'm impressed you lasted as long as you did :P

    My friend just received rejection last week. He asked for feedbacks from Edinburgh why did he get rejected which they stated was due to his academic record. Edinburgh also stated he was among the top 150 applicants. (I need to confirm with him again for the ranking tho)

    o.O if he was top 150 undergraduate he'd get an offer!?

    Was he an international or a postgrad?

    Probably an international, as they have a different ranking - top 20 (or whatever it is) get offers. Postgrads compete with the rest of us

    Haha yes, and I was so PROUD of myself but alas! It didnt help much though. Especially since I can only guess my academics with accuracy, and they're good but not top (didnt get a 1st). I dislike that I dont get an extra point for an MSc though! Come on now! BA+MSc = BA 1st no??

    Edinburgh said today around 60% of applications have been "processed to UCAS"...and considering there have been no offers as of yet, its safe to assume that means 60% of the original 2700 ish applicants have been rejected.

    There are 300 ish offers given out, and roughly 1000-1100 people left in the game, so a fair few rejections are still to come! Probably even some in the next few hours...yaaaay
