    Hi guys! I applied yesterday. It's really hard to say in what tier my academics will be put since I'm doing our national qualifications. I mean, it says on their site that 7777=A*AA=AAA but 6666=AAB (seems like a huge jump to me). They also say that A*=7 and A=6, so it seems a bit odd that for a course that requires AAA you'd still need 7777...? Anyways, I'm a gap year applicant so I've achieved my scores already. I got 7777776 (retook the 6 though and got a 7). Any thoughts about my tier?

    Got 753 and Band 1 on the UKCAT btw best of luck everybody!

    Hey guys I'm confused. On the Exeter website, link-https://medicine.exeter.ac.uk/bmbs/.
    It says interviews for 2016 have been sent out. Is this referring to this year, or outdated info left on site for last year.

    "Interviews will commence the week beginning 5th December through to the 16th December. For those applicants who are unable to attend the interview date which has been offered we will be holding a further round of Interviews in February/March. A valid reason for requesting a reschedule will be required and it is important to note that a rescheduled interview is not guaranteed, a new interview date can only be provided if a place is available." This is what they said in the acknowledgement email I got.

    What UKCAT scores and IB predicts (as well as GCSE scores) would make an international application competitive?

    Thanks

    You should go in tier 3 just hope there not to many applicants in tiers 1 and 2 because they go through each tier then down to tier 4 which is predicted AAA and use UKCAT threshold for each tier ,you have a very high UKCAT,if they interview from tier 3 you stand a good chance.My son too applied at Exeter but not with high UKCAT and his GCSEs are not very good but did very well in A levels all A Stars so keeping fingers crossed.
