    I'm confused. Is it like, that you're recieved the offer?
    Or simply a confirmation email for tracking your application in UCAS?

    It's just telling me how to get onto the application portal where they'll notify me about any interviews or whatever. No offers.

    People, it'll take anything up to 7 working days to process your application. If you still don't get your login details by then, go on the portal website, put in your email address and click on the "forgotten password" button, that should do the trick.

    If not, just give them a ring. I can imagine the admissions office will be swamped with applications between now and Tuesday so give them some time.

    Depends how good your academics (GCSEs) are now. They interview the top 25% academically, and since the UKCAT average this year is 660, I'm not sure your UKCAT would get you an interview. But they use a sliding scale between GCSEs and UKCAT, so if you have >8A*s at GCSE then I'd say you have a good chance

    Well I'm an Italian student and I have 9/10 in secondary school and 95/100 as a predicted grade (the minimum required is 90)

    Maybe phone them quickly and ask if you're worried? Or go for it if you really love King's and keep a couple of safe options Just be warned, they are usually pretty heavy on the UKCAT and the average has risen a lot this year.

    Ah brilliant, if they told you to go for it then you should have a chance I heard somewhere that Sheffield will consider you with a UKCAT over 650 but I'm not sure if that will change with the new average. Cardiff are quite GCSE heavy (they do a points system) so with good academics you should be fine there, they're quite good for all rounders. I don't know anything about Dundee sorry! I love King's too, really hope I get in I'm a reapplicant, only got one interview last year.

    Hey, what do you reckon my chances are with these:
    GCSE 5A*s 4A's and a B
    AS: aaab A level predicted A*A*A
    UKCAT 742.5 average
    I know the ukcat average has absolutely shot up this year, which shows that we're in an insanely clever year group, and that just leaves me worried because my GCSEs are pretty mediocre (or below)...

    So looking at it the way you're looking, with 9A* and 43 predicted for IB Iiii have a good chance for interview? God this is making me nervous.
