    Just got a email from kings that i am rejected Got 697.5 in ukcat. As kings is all baseed on ukcat if you got less than this it doesnt look too good.
    I reckon over 720ish you should be ok.

    Sorry to hear this, good luck with your other choices

    Did anyone else get a message from Kings asking to fill in a fee status form? I can feel a rejection coming soon, I got 707.5 in my UKCAT
    Ooo, no?! What is this form? Are you a UK student? Ah dont count your chickens and all that 707.5 is a good score!

    I got changed from open to W (wolfson). It took me a while to understand where the change was. I am at a loss too to what it means.

    yes, i made an open application and my status changed to L too. but what does that mean? does cambridge consider open applications first separately, and if passed, they assign you to a college? or it means that the college will check now my application?

    Hi everyone,
    I just got a rejection from Kings too - looks like they are starting to let everyone know. At least they haven't made us wait too long!
    Waiting to hear from Barts, Southampton and Warwick.

    it is making me nervous... KCL rejecting one after another. Do they email or can you see it on track/portal?
    Email to say your application has been updated on the portal and there's a message on there. Then track is updated (mine was a few hours later).

    Both. You need to login. If it's a rejection your track would update shortly too.

    Damn I agree on the waiting time too! What was your UKCAT? It seems people under 700 so far got rejected. I got 680.

    I'm feeling a bit sick. I got 717.5 which is probably not good enough for Kings. I wish they would reject everyone at once.

    If I haven't received an interview call, does it mean that my application is unsuccessful and I cannot expect an interview invite from Birmingham anymore?
    I'm an international applicant so is it possible that I might receive the invite later than you guys?

    Dealing with a lot of anxiety over here

    My UKCAT was 690, so very similar. I agree, I think they have a high UKCAT cut off so mine was probably too low. My plan is to take the GAMSAT next year if I am unsuccessful with 2016 entry.
    Good luck everyone and try not to feel too nervous or anxious. It's a tough game out there!

    King's is my first choice too. Ideally I can stay in London for medical school and save on accommodation and living costs!

    Hi,

    It means that Lucy is going to be considering your application. The College considers the application, not the University. So if you make an open application it will be assigned to one of the Colleges and they will then consider it.

    Have the Newcastle applicants been watching the A100 thread? Interviews are going out and the lowest score I've seen invited to interview so far is 712.5, doesn't bode well for A101 crossing my fingers they're starting with the highest scorers and working downwards!

    We need to write an open letter to the uni's to say "hey you, dean of med school, tell me if you think you're a good doctor?? Now go take the UKCAT and i will categorically decide whether you are a good doctor or not and decide your life for you based on what score you get. Don't judge us just on the UKCAT - talk to us and read our statements!"

    Sorry. I'm angry. I broke my toe and I'm mad about everything all of a sudden.

    Bless you, i hope youre not in too much pain!

    Also I completely agree, while I wouldnt have a chance of getting in without the UKCAT I still think its an awful tool and very rudimentary
