    pre interview rejection from Leicester, very disappointed. I was told my preinterview score of 57 did not meet the threshold this year, oh well
    Are you a graduate or undergraduate

    If it's any help, when I got asked for my reference on Wednesday they said "please send it no later than MONDAY 10TH MARCH" in big bold letters.

    Perhaps that means they are making some other decisions on Monday or Tuesday? Dunno if that helps anyone.
    Maybe that is their plan . I really hope so!

    Owh I really wish you all the best in whatever you choose to do, whether it's medicine or something else entirely - your determination should be rewarded in the best possible way and I really hope that it is, you deserve it!

    I want to share my story - HYMS said they'll reply by Feb. So I heard back on the LAST day and it was a rejection. Lol. That's the unluckiest. Having to wait the longest just for a REJECTION! Hopefully same story won't repeat with Leicester.
    Snap. That's my story too.

    Sorry to hear that I know exactly how you feel, I'm in the same boat. I'm not entirely sure what to do either!

    I am so sorry that you've had 8 rejections ~ I am know it is soul destroying. Have you thought about studying medicine abroad ~ just a thought. I am unable to consider this because of finances otherwise I would. Would you consider studying a bio-medical degree say at Manchester Uni and trying to get a transfer onto medicine? Might I enquire what are your stats? Best of luck ~ please don't be despondent. There's always more than one way to 'skin a cat'. Keep trying!

    I'm really sorry to hear that I think it would be worth getting feedback on your application though, I have a friend that got 56 and landed an interview, good luck for your other choices

    Guys PLEASE don't give up - not if it's what you want to do. I have a friend who applied every year for 5 years but eventually he made it and is now well into his first year at Keele.

    I personally find this whole process utterly demoralising but if my application at Leicester doesn't go well I'll apply next year. In fact I've already started to plan my application. But the real truth is, if you're 100% sure about medicine, what else is there? Seriously - if you know of any other profession that would provide you with satisfaction then tell me because I've looked and I can't find anything. Maybe you guys are different and would be happy doing something else but I seriously don't think I have the strength to move on like that, not after setting my heart on becoming a doctor.

    I say keep going - if you think you can stand this process at least once more then go for it! Keep the faith .

    Thank you for your motivational words

    Words can't describe just how much I want to study medicine, and if it wasn't due to the finances then I would've applied to study medicine abroad. The determination I have to study medicine is huge, and believe me I wouldn't be happy doing something else. I've been exposed to a wide variety of different healthcare professions but nothing comes close to the role of a doctor. God, I want medicine SO bad

    Not 100% sure if I'll be taking a second gap year, but I'd love to give medicine another shot!

    Hi, I am very sorry to hear this. I have a score of 57 as well and have not heard anything since I applied. Obviously I can't expect good news anymore.
    However I am very surprised of the reason they have given you, especially since I recall some 57s and a 56 getting interview invites. It seems very unfair. :mad:.

    Anyway I wish you the very best of luck with the rest of your application and hope you get into Medicine.
