Yo guys I'm going to call Leeds today to find out how many dentistry applicants there are this year. I'll inform everyone when I get a response.
EDIT:
I was told there was no one from admission there, so she couldn't find out the information. She also told me to call back next week perhaps......awkward.....

Hey have you heard back yet??

Lol I hope fewer people applied cause of the BMAT thing, but more people may have applied due to the lower UKCAT scores :
haha I'm so nervous for the BMAT results though, I know they don't use it for selection but still, don't want to get a really low score. haha

I phoned leeds admission earlier and this year they recieved about 600 applicants. I think the BMAT has deterred applicants from applying then, which I don't understand why seeing as it technically has no weighting due to it being a trial year. Not complaining though . We should hear from them near the end of November.

omg I hope this is true haha :P looool

yeh but some people didn't know it had no weighing and I know some people who didn't apply cause they were like, why would leeds make us do the BMAT and not use it, lol leeds only use the BMAT after selection for interview then they look at BMAT scores, if you got a low BMAT is doesn't matter, if you got a high BMAT but didn't get an interview, they will look at your application again and give you an interview.

but that has made me a happy person!!

im sure it was 3000+ and that they interviewed fewer people around 250 and gave around 140 offers. Apparently they gave fewer interviews than the year before (gave fewer interviews for 2014 entry than 2013 entry) because too many people firmed them or something in 2013 so they reduced it.

hope I helped,

in an e-mail they sent out to those rejected, they said the applicant to offer ratio was 20:1
