    Wasn’t that a waiting list for results day when they may provide a few last minute offers (several universities do this) or for offers later on? KCL actually had a few vacancies on results day in 2013 even after any candidates kept on hold, not many but there were some.
    I have a theory that KCL have a criteria right now that out of the 25 maximum points you are marked on in the interview, if you get over 22.5 you get an offer, if you get below 20 you get a rejection and if you are between those scores you are in a pool until interviews are complete. If they fill up all the offer numbers with candidates who exceed the 22.5 score then everybody will be rejected in the “pool”, otherwise the highest in the pool will get offers in due course to make up the total offer volume.
    Pure guess work of course, but noting how some people have received offers (up to 19th December is the last one I’ve seen posted here) and other haven’t received offers/rejections on earlier interview dates + a couple of candidates posted that they had received a rejection yesterday, then this is logical at least.
    For the record, my son has applied to KCL and was interviewed on the 18th December and waiting to hear.
    Hi they are doing things a bit differently as they are scoring people out of a 100
    But what you say makes senses

    I wonder if kings are holding back some people into a waiting list to compare them with current interviewees, and then sending offers/rejections out? I know it says somewhere that they do offers on a rolling basis. I mean, my interview was Dec 5!!

    Yeah I think that's how it works

    It says in the application guide:
    'Applicants are ranked at interview and those who perform particularly well are offered a place first, while those who perform less well, but still to a high standard, may be held a little longer pending a final decision.'

    Anyone who had an interview on the 19th heard back yet by any chance? I received the thank you message after uploading my documents on monday. Not sure what to expect! Gap year student
    My interview was on 19th as well, but I haven't heard anything!! It's driving me crazy, because I thought I'd done okay and KCL is my first choice

    Well my interview was on the 16th Dec! People who were also interviewed then have already started to receive offers.
    I thought my interview went well tbh - one interviewee even likened me to a salmon!! Lol
    I was asked for a copy of my passport about a week and a half ago, but nothing since.
    AAAGH! I'm so on edge rite now

    I told myself that I wouldn't get like this, this time round (I'm a reapplicant)!
    Hahaha lol - I guess there's no point fighting the inevitable ;P
    I'll just assume the foetal position in the corner of my room and cry myself to sleep (you can tell I've had practice at this from last time round) :'(

    Anyone rejected, did you receive a request to upload passport before hand.

    just want to work out if being asked to upload passport is a good sign, as some people have been asked while others havent.

    I think they do them in batches! I'd guess it'd be another week or so before any more, you never know though
