    ive got a friend that got aab but kings accepted her despite not meeting the offer conditions

    in order, your options are:
    1. call and beg on results day
    2. resit and reaplly to the few unis that will allow this
    3. grad entry or applying to undergraduate courses after gettin a 2.1

    I take it that was 2013 intake kolatytler for your friend. I know on results day KCL ended up with a few spare places so some of the accepted offers must have missed their grades I guess to create a shortfall. I know this as my son rang up on results day and found they had a few places. Didn’t get an interview at the time (hadn’t applied to KCL in the 2013 round) but did have an interview on the 18th December this time round and still waiting to hear, fingers crossed. Also had interviews at 3 other universities as well but still waiting for one to issue that crucial offer, but at least has no rejections as of today, March looks like it will be a busy month!
    Aim for those AAA grades MS Miz, suspect KCL will not make the same mistake again and will make sure they have enough offers out so if you don’t get your grades an offer will lapse. Very rare to get a place if you miss the grades so go for it.

    yep it was last year (she's now a first year). And i think they probably wont do it again, the same friend told me that at kings a lot of students fail midsessional (this year around 40% of the cohort got below the passmark of 50) and many also fail the yeat...i think they will try and reduce the number of admitted students that dont get the grades

    Thats not clearing tho! Clearing is when you have declined/been rejected from all your choices on your ucas application, so you apply for another choice. After i got rejected last year i got the option of going into clearing in march, but most people do clearing after results day if they've missed their grades. Your right that some med schools will call people post-rejection and reverse their decision if they haven't filled all of their places but kings don't do clearing, if they did i would have seen it last year!
    They don't officially call it clearing but it is,my sister got into dentistry 2 years ago,had all rejections without any interview called up the Uni they said they'd look at her app and then called her back for an interview next day and she was offered a place.onthe ucas app it has to go through as a place as 'clearing' and I have spoken to 5 people in my year who got called up by kings on results day and when were given the offer it come up as through clearing!

    40% did not fail midsessional!cant rmeber exact number but only a few fail end of year as well if they don't work through out year!

    work hard get the grades and call up kings if you've been rejected.not sure if they will have as many spaces available this year though,Iv met 10 people who got in results day in my year!

    No, because they state millions of times 'if you have a question use the portal'!!!
