    Thanks what I noticed as well, I just really hope that's the reason! Since the mock interview invite I haven't heard anything. Also I think it would take longer than a day to process an A2B application
    I emailed A2B and they said that interviews normally take place after the A2B mock interviews so that you can have a practice. So perhaps they will give out invitations for February interviews instead, because if we got an invitation earlier we could have booked an interview that would be before the A2B mock interview, so there would be no point in having a mock interview.

    Still haven't heard anything!
    Like I said, I emailed and I got a mock interview the same day. It may have prompted them to give me the mock earlier perhaps?

    Ah that makes sense, I really hope that is the reason! I just want to hear off them now!

    Yeah! When do they send actual interview invites? Is it good news that we got a mock?

    I Phoned them last week and they said they had a delay with receiving all the dentistry applications so no interviews will be sent out until December, they also said interviews will most likely be sent out in the latter half of December.

    I think everyone who applied via the A2b scheme for dentistry/medicine receives a mock interview so I wouldn't say its good news or bad

    Do you mind me asking what are your stats? e.g. UKCAT/GCSEs/AS/predicted grades?

    I've just had my mock interview! It was a really good experience, you got to meet lots of undergraduates. Unfortunately I still haven't heard anything about a real interview yet.
