    Already rejected by Oxford and Manchester, but i do have a conditional offer at KCL biomedical science.
    I also applied to KCL for Biomedical Sciences but haven't heard anything and I submitted my app on 2nd October My Personal statement is very medicine orientated and why i want to be a doctor etc. so could that be the reason i haven't heard back?

    Mine was also pretty medicine oriented, so I don't think that was the problem. I wouldn't worry about it though. If they haven't sent you anything, that probably means you are still being considered. They said on the application portal that they aim to give answers within 60 days, but they may take longer. So I would say sit tight a little more. I think your grades are way better than mine and they will have no problem accepting you

    Biomedical. The thought process behind it was that the minimum grades were lower for the subject than elsewhere, and I could apply for a scholarship at KCL here in Macau.

    Hey, I'm not sure when interviews will be given out, but if you go to their website the overseas applicants interview date is February 10th. Given that typically 3 weeks before is the latest they give out interviews, it could still be a long wait!

    Got an interview for Oxford . Does anyone know why despite the 14 available places, only 3 are usually offered a place?
    Not to scare you or anything, but the year I applied to oxford, only 1 international student got a place.
    I think they are not very open to international students, but if you do well, there shouldn't be a reason they shouldn't accept you.

    Ahhhh that's not a really nice number to look at but hopefully so, interview prep seems to be going decently well (i think at least...)
