    I've been checking the KCL portal page approximately 5689380 times daily since my interview on 15th January, I have no idea how some of the December interviewees can stand this wait.

    To those with offers, did you get them through your portal or through ucas? If it is through ucas then there's no need to constantly check the portal, right?

    The offer on the portal came through at 1800, this was around an hour before I got an email from kings telling me it had been updated (it could have been longer, just going by when I checked). The Ucas thing didn't change for a while afterwards.

    They've only given offers out to exceptional candidates, and rejections to those who weren't strong. The rest are being pooled for further discussion and will probably hear back after interviews have finished. These are people who scored well but not exceptionally "let's give them an offer right this second" well, so if you haven't heard back yet it probably isn't a bad thing.

    This isn't the first time you've posted saying that December interviewees have no hope if they haven't heard back yet, so please stop, it's hardly motivational for us.

    Yes there is still hope for you if you have not heard back.People who were rejected sometimes get called for an interview,people who have interview and get rejected,you even have a chance as they may call you(it happened alot this year and actually happens in alot of med schools on results day).If you get rejected,write a letter ask for feedback,they will remember you.Anyone who hasn't heard you have hope dw!

    Remember to try lead the interview,say they ask'oh you worked in a hospice tell me more' here you can say whatever and at end for example'and i learnt to communicate more effectively' which leads them on to ask you about communication etc etc.So you are in control!

    Also,people who have offers already are not the 'exceptional' ones and if you are rejected like I said it doesn't mean your not strong enough.I have people in my year who were rejected after interview,called back given an offer and are the ones getting the highest marks!!!Don't always listen to what other students applying with you are saying because they don't have an idea on the process really!!!

    I know, it's hard to stay positive, especially when people on here are getting offers after what seems like seconds when we've been waiting months, but we still have a really good chance

    yep...if the candidates interviewed so far have not scored highly enough to reach a certain target they will invite more

    Ja, but portal updates before you get an email. There is about a 2 hour lag between portal updating and them emailing you about the change!! So there is method behind the medical school madness!!

    Hey guys, remember me?

    I got rejected pre-interview the other day. My notification had a message saying "Whilst you met entry requirements...".
    But when I asked for feedback (IT PAYS TO ASK FOR FEEDBACK) they said "you did not meet entry requirements"

    Which was strange. I had a mistake with my predicted grades AABb which was then rectified by my college via email to AAAa as I should have gotten based on my moderated results.

    It then struck me that King's totally ignored the email from my school. I later understood why - their policy states that any new info has to be submitted personally by the applicant! Googled " king's college medicine appeal", found it, and got cracking.

    I then filed an appeal... and I got a really really prompt reply. It all happened in 3 days: I will be going up for an interview! (not sure about the date- they will contact me).

    For the record, I'm international, 790 band 2.

    Bottom line is, if you have a nagging feeling that something isn't right, that this shouldn't be the outcome, act on it! Ask for feedback. Send an appeal (especially if you meet the grounds for appeal). Sometimes it's good to let go and accept things. Sometimes you have to ask yourself if you've done everything humanly possible

    All the best!

    Hi guys. Do you get notified of your rejection on the portal or by ucas or both? I got notified by ucas by the portal still says kings is processing my application so I'm a bit confused.

    Similar thing happened to me.

    I received my rejection last night and the reason given was that I did not meet the academic entrance requirements. I clearly did bcoz I score 44 IB points.

    I'm international too btw!
