    Please may someone send me the link for the scoring system this year/ explain how it is done? i would like to calculate my score
    Your GCSE's are scored out of 16. Take your top 8 GCSEs (incl Eng/Maths/Sci), give yourself 2 points for an A*/ 1 for an A.

    Then look at your 4 subsections of UKCAT - for each section, give yourself the following points:
    801-900 = 9 pts
    701-800 = 8 pts
    601-700 = 7 pts
    501-600 = 6pts etc.
    No score for SJT band, as UKCAT scoring for SJT was flawed this year.

    That gives you a total out of 52. Then you just sit back, bask in glory and wait for the interview invitation to arrive (assuming your PS is also amazing).

    Just one question - have you applied this year? Did you apply without knowing what the admissions process is?

    It has been very quiet in this thread.
    Anyone knows when Nottingham will give out interviews?
    What scores you have got? Mine is 45 out of 52, hope it makes the cut off

    That's my score too. It's so unfair though because I got 2 700s which is right on the border for an extra point

    Another 45 applicant here, I think it should make the cutoff due to this year's shocking ukcat results

    I got 47 points, I think I've read somewhere that Nottingham are one of the latest med schools in terms of when they tell you about interviews and when they give out offers, apparently into April for offers! I heard Interviews start going out later in December

    first interviews are first week of Jan '15. Expect invitations 2 weeks before this date


    they still haven't confirmed whether or not they're doing MMI this year or not!

    At the open day they said that they were introducing MMI from this year, but only having 4 MMI stations this year, before moving to 8 stations for following years.

    At least now knowing their interviews are given out later it won't seem like if I don't get one soon I must have been rejected! It's hard watching everyone else get offers for other courses when our applications went in so much earlier!

    Have they rejected the bottom 50% yet or not? When would you find out if you were one of those people? Am dying to know where the cut-off point will be and whether I will even get the chance to have someone even LOOK at my personal statement or not :/

    I heard from another med applicant that Nottingham has been hot on rejections this year, but can't see anything to support that- if so, it's a good sign thus far

    Didn't they get 10% decrease in number of applicants from last year as well?

    realistically though no one is going to get full marks for the UKCAT section so there will be very very few people with 52/52... I'd say cut off would be around 44/52 especially with the drop in UKCAT scores this year
