    How long does it take for the confirmation email to come through?

    Mine was sent off on the 1st

    Really hope the cut off is around 630!!!

    i don't know if you tried emailing the uni but they gave me the info that last year the cutoff was 2590 and for the previous cycle was 2340.

    My prediction is this year it will be around 2500 because of 2 main reasons:
    1) VR is hard every hear
    2) DA was easier last year so the cutoff is high for last year. This year DA scores have fallen so average will fall too definitley lower than 2590.

    Ahh thank you! Gives me some hope I just assumed that since most people haven't been doing as well, more people around ~600- 690 would be applying here but had no specific figures :P

    Good luck to you!

    not exactly for resit applicants. The only thing that makes it safe is the fact that if you meet their minimum requirements you are GUARANTEED an interview

    I have, pending a remark.
    I was predicted AAA and am fairly confident I am able to achieve A*A*A* this year.

    Annoyingly enough, I was 2 UMS off an A in all 3 of my B subjects. I requested a remark for Biology, which I am still awaiting. I requested my script back for chemistry unit 2, and my teacher has found 4 marks which I should have got, but didn't due to a harsh marker.

    I am applying for 2015 entry. My stats are:
    IB 42 predicted (650 tariff)
    UKCAT 710 average
    I am intending to apply to St. George's as my safe choice. What do you think?
    I really liked the university when I visited this summer, but I have to admit that the location was something negative for me.
    Although in London (where I want to go), the area (Tooting) was not something that I liked. Overall, I'd be happy to get go to this university!

    They have low ukcat cutoffs but interviews will only be given to the best scores.

    Interviews will be given to the top 600 out of those who meet the entry requirements. Doesn't necessarily mean the best scores
