    Hey,I'm just curious as to which unis you applied to?
    Oxford, UCL, Imperial & King's

    Which would explain my lack of a place!

    I'm sorry man I was actually in a very similar position to you in Year 13 - I too applied to 3 BMAT Uni's and got 4 pre-interview rejections (but I didn't get a 9 - congrats!). I reapplied and am happy at Imperial now though so I'm sure it'll end up working out for you.

    I tried my luck at calling up Med Schools on results day but to no avail. Are you going to reapply next year?*
    Yeah, I'll almost definitely be reapplying (grade-dependent of course) unless some miracle happens to me on August 18th!

    Ahhh you get to live in the castle right? I'm so jealous!
    Maybe! I know not all accommodation is in the actual castle building itself but I'll still get to join in with all the formals and stuff

    Yeah, I applied to 3 BMAT Unis, got 9.0, 4.5, 2A and still got 4 pre-interview rejections

    Better luck next time I suppose! (Although a couple from my school got into Imperial and Newcastle by ringing up on Reuslts Day with 2A*+). If pigs might fly, that might happen to me as well!
    well damn, getting rejected pre interview with a 9... ouch :/ it's definitely the essay, but at the same time if someone had a 9 in a section, I wouldn't let them go*

    I'm planning on doing the same, especially since I already have a biomed place at Newcastle. call the other unis that rejected you, I've heard about last minute people getting into Kings ^^ lets see if I even get A*AA lolololfml

    Everything depends on these results. I don't even know whether or not to start UKCAT practice but there's a pretty high chance I won't get AAA 😭 It's the coursework that's pulls my grades down, always.

    I'm just expecting to see a D in D1 (edexcel). While I feel like I did all my methods right, my numbers were wayy off to what others had done lmao. If C3 is an A* and C4 a B, I should still scrape an A though

    Then I'll need A*A* in Bio and Chem to get to firm :cry2:

    This is how I'm passing the time!
    Watching too many episodes of trashy reality tv shows/ Netflix/ making copious amounts of tea/ looking into volunteering opportunities but not actually doing them (I know, so bad)/ retreating to my bedroom, earphones in, listening to depressing music in preparation for failure and then the same for success (because I'll have to do the UKCAT again!)

    I hate this part of life.

    I feel lucky that i am an AS student. It's sad to know that any other year you could have achieved an A* in Maths (If you get an A on results day) . On the bright side you insinuated that an A is enough to secure a place on your course at uni. 👏👏 Coming to think of it, what is your firm and insurance choice and what course do you want to study?
    My firm is Kent (need AAA) and my insurance is Nottingham (need ABB) to do psychology so it really isn't the end of the world if I don't get an A* ahaha

    Are you A2? Cuz I'm in AS and I was worried about failing this year so didn't want to start UKCAT practice but I met some people who were ex - students at my college and they told me to go for it because if I ask the college to make my predicted grade whatever I want, they'll do so lmao.

    Did you not get any offers this year?

    At least make sure you've booked a date for the UKCAT - places can go quickly!

    Reading about SQA results day makes me even more desperate for A level results day to arrive quickly. I'm hoping the next week will pass by really quickly!

    Clearing places for scottish students at scottish universities are a LOT more restricted than clearing places for RUK students at scottish universities. Because their fees are subsidised heavily by the scottish government the places are severely restricted for scottish students (but not for students from England/Wales/NI where the fees cover most of the costs)

    Yes I'm a2! I decided to take a gap year as I only got 640 in the UKCAT last year. I (regrettably) didn't apply last year!
