    Hi,

    I received a pre-interview rejection saying I did not meet the initial entry requirements. But as far as I can tell I have. The only thing that might be an issue is that I did not have a B as AS level but I contacted the university prior to applying and the lady on the phone advised me that they would accept my Extended project qualification instead of a fourth AS level. I've emailed them and I ring their offices every day but no one has got back to me so far. I don't really know what else to do but keep contacting them as they are my last chance at medicine this year. Not holding out much hope :/

    With something like that where there is the possibility of a mistake then I'd ring them to clarify rather than e-mailing as you will get a direct response and not have to wait whilst every other e-mail query is responded to. However, when they say initial requirements they my be talking about the initial ranking for interview where perhaps your UKCAT/statement/reference wasn't strong enough. Get in touch with them ASAP though to make sure! ... however if it doesn't work out it's not the end of the road if you really want Medicine, there are plenty of adequate applicants who don't get in first time purely because there simply aren't the spaces. A gap year is on the cards as is Graduate Entry, from what I hear it's reasonably common to get in on the 2nd/3rd/4th application! - Good Luck! :-)

    Yeah thanks for the response. I'm not giving up yet, will definately take a gap year if I get the grades. I have been ringing and ringing them but no response for the last week and a half. I will try again tomorow :-(
    I thought it might be the ranking, and its fine if it is, but I don't want to not even be considered due to a technicality

    So is the UKCAT used with our other academics and interview score to decide who gets the offers or is it just academic, interview and no UKCAT to decide about offers, thanks

    i think it's all three but as I said before there's no point speculating, we'll all find out in due course! :-)

    Offers are based on pre interview score which includes ukcat and interview score.
    Does anyone think offers will be out by the first week in march like last year?

    They're interviewing later this year so I'd say end of the second week or beginning of the third week but definitely before the 22nd!!

    The last interview last year was on the 27th Feb and then offers were given out on the 8th March, 9 days later. Just wondering if anyone has a really late interview this year so we can gauge roughly when decisions will be made?

    Call them and see. I did on Friday and gave my details to the admissions office because the lady in charge of medicine wasn't there. Unfortunately I got a pre-interview rejection but if I hadn't called up I have no idea when I would have found out! Good luck though
