    yes there is check their twitter!!!
    Provide a link or stop making this claim. If untrue, as I strongly suspect it is, you're giving false hope to people who haven't done as well as they'd like.

    I told them I couldn't do the 16th December date, do you think they'd send me an interview email for January anytime soon?

    Yeah I don't think you can read into this too much. This could be anything from them having a strong PS to these people's applications simply being on top of the admission tutors pile of suitable applicants for interview.

    It seems they all have amazing GCSE results though.

    Are you literally here just to brag? Those are not average grades (even for medicine) and you know it.

    No i am not bragging. Fine average is the wrong word but there are many people with better grades especially my AS UMS averages which UCL did ask for.

    2 weeks ago... they literally asked everyone for UMS in my school...seemed to be in roughly alphabetical order. Yeh I have a bit of a warped sense of average because my school gets ridiculous grades and most people applying had 90+UMS and 5.5+ BMATs. Anyway good luck

    From what I understand not even that many UK-based candidates have, so I wouldn't get too worried. I believe although they do interview some candidates before the new year, the vast majority are called for Jan/Feb time.

    All the way until March, I think.

    I don't think they ask every applicant though. I haven't had anything asking for UMS scores nor, it seems, did everyone on previous applicants' threads.

    UCL does very few early rejections because of the way its interview process works. They assign an overall 'priority' to each application that isn't incomplete and then go through them in descending order until they run out of interview slots, which is usually around March time. At that point, I imagine a lot of people get rejected en masse.

    I'm a gap year applicant.
