    yep very similar profile to you!

    had bham on 19/01 and got an offer on 25/01, had a liverpool invite for 14/02 but declined it because i knew it was my last choice. Had a swansea interview on 3/2- thought i would await their decision.
    finally got rejected from warwick on the 14/02 assuming its my UKCAT- bit annoyed about warwick because they took so long and i didnt think my score was awful (672.5)- not even enough for a cheeky spot on the waiting list! But cant complain obviously because i have got a place.

    good luck for bham, and how was liverpool?

    liverpool was good/weird.

    interview was only about 10m long so felt like about 3m.

    didnt ask me any q's on why med or why liverpool or the course, maybe i didnt let them though, i just went off on one whenever they asked a question so probs ran out of time.

    from time i walked into med school to time i walked out was maybe 15m in total - very surreal.

    came out thinking 9/10, now i think 7/10. hope i did enough!

    Does sound a bit weird! Saved £40 for 15minutes then by withdrawing! Is liverpool high up there for you?

    Also good luck to everyone else for their interviews etc

    yeh liverpool is probs my first choice, close between it and bham. I have friends and family there and was brought up there so thats appealing.

    was refreshing not to be asked why medicine! after 6 months of this stressful process and willingness to commit X amount of money and 4 years of your life it is ****e when they ask you why med to see if you're commited...

    i understand the reason why they ask but i cant help that it gets my back up!

    Hi,

    I'm still waiting tp hear from KCL regarding the GPEP programme. Dont know if its a good thing or a bad thing that I still haven't heard but I'm a nervous wreck at the moment!! I think those rejections were for people who were still waiting to hear regarding an interview becasue a guy in my class heard from them on Friday to say he had been unsuccessfull in getting an interview. Are you still waiting??
    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Yes, still waiting, along with lots of others it seems :confused:
    Have read all sorts of posts about what people have heard when they have phoned admissions, but they don't seem very clear.

    I'm now almost convinced that I do not have an offer coming for the 4 year. If you think about the percentage of Kings GPEP interviewees that probably use forums it seems to make sense that the 3-4 offers reported online would account for about 10% of the total 30 odd that Kings say they give out (as in most people who have an offer are not going to be using a forum such as this or newmediamed etc)

    But, I still can't help the feeling that there might still be a chance as it's not over till they send a rejection - that's what makes this waiting process so hard!
    There could also be offers for the 5 year to come I guess, who knows.

    Best of luck to everyone, hope we hear soon.

    PS Anyone want to do a sweep stake on when we'll know?
    I reckon 3rd week of March.

    people thought about what they're gonna do if they dont get in, and where they’ll apply to next year?

    i have 2 left to play (lpool and bham) and put my chances at 50%.

    I think I will work for another year and try GEP again.

    If I don’t get UKCAT >700 I wont bother with the UKCAT unis that’s for sure…

    I'm still waiting for Leicester GEP... not very hopeful at this late stage!

    I have a year and a half HCSW, and because of how they work it out I also will have scored very highly on their UKCAT section. I thought Leicester was actually my best shot this year. Oh well.

    I got a rejection from Kings last week without having an interview.
    Does anyone know roughly what the cutoff UKCAT score was? (or did they use PS aswell?)

    I have a year volunteering part time with the NAS and a year working in a nursing home. What about yourself?

    All sections were >650 so I think that's pretty good. My A-Levels are tosh though, so maybe that has something to do with it.
