    Feb interviews have been given out and that's pretty much the end of it, so I guess this was the last batch.
    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)!

    One more batch I think.

    Hi,

    If you don't mind me asking, what are your A2 grades? It's just because I have basically the same UKCAT but haven't heard anything.

    Thanks

    Me neither. I don't know what went wrong with my application... Maybe competition was just higher this year? Oh well, goodbye, Aberdeen.

    This just demotivated me... I just want to cry right now.

    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.

    Over 300 interview invites sent out today. If you didn't hear, until your Track says reject - we are still considering your application."

    Why is everyone saying the last day was today. I thought it was next Friday. Also, isn't it a bit too early to stop giving out interviews??

    When Aberdeen say 'Academics 30%', is that your overall academic performance, or just AS grades and A2 predictions? Does anyone have any idea?

    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 "

    so they must still have some invites to send out

    but thats maybe cause we have different qualifications and they probably count it wrongly...

    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.

    "count it wrongly" :cute:

    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...
