Oh hell noes, the dates people were giving didn't even reach into halfway through February! Mine's in March so you still have 2 weeks of interviews unassigned (based on the posts here)!
I got an interview for the 7th of February at 2.30pm! So happy! To all of those that didn't receive interview invitations, I wouldn't give up hope yet. I know from previous applicants that they didn't receive invitations until about January or February. I think this is far too early for the 'last batch' to be sent out.

In other words, it means "we've just sent out our last batch of interviews, but might still consider your application if there are some places left for interview." (we're not that silly).
this was two minutes ago…
"Aberdeen Uni SMD @aberdeenuni_smd 2m
@ItsIbrar we still have some spaces to fill, so as before, until your track is updated, we are still considering your application "
To people who didn't get an interview invite today- when I phoned admissions on Wednesday before I got my interview they said that they still had 700 applications that they hadn't had time to look at. They were working their way through them and hoped to send out a big batch of the ones they had got through on Friday. When I asked if it was the last batch she actually laughed at me, and said no, the earliest they'll have got through them all is January. Chin up.

but thats maybe cause we have different qualifications and they probably count it wrongly...
"count it wrongly"
I think they are used to receiving international qualifications: we're not the first and won't be the last EU students applying to medical school in the UK. So, this can't be an explanation. Maybe, it was our PS (as I'm sure both of our UKCAT scores and predicted grades were good
enough)? Oh well, I should stop crying I guess. Being rejected isn't the end of the world (trying to relativise here, lol).
But it's quite hard not to feel disheartened when being a doctor is all you ever want to be...
