    This is really awkward. I made this account today because I've never needed to post before? My bad, I just assumed you guys wanted to know? Anyway, I put my name as DrLabia because I really want to be a gynaecologist! Was just playing with words... Good luck to you all

    Hey all!

    Thought I would contact Dundee Medicine via fb to see what they had to say about sending out offers.

    So the 11th is Friday, meaning we should all hear by Friday about offers! Good luck x

    Yep! It suggests they'll start sending them out before the 11th with the aim to have them all out by the 11th. Since it has to be done manually I'm expecting it to come in dribs and drabs over the next five days. Maybe they'll start today

    Aberdeen has a totally different system to Dundee...at Dundee your interview is a clean slate so hopefully you'll have done just fine...got my fingers crossed for all of us

    Aw no I'm so sorry, is Dundee your last option now? I got wait listed too and I got rejected from Glasgow and Edinburgh.
    Let's just hold on to the hope that these guys won't disappoint us too...

    I have queens and Liverpool as well but the queens interview was way worse than Aberdeen. Dundee was my first interview tho so I'm thinking I'll get rejected from it too! (ps I've no idea how to reply to individual messages)

    It's good to hear that you've still got others left.
    Dundee was my first interview too and I think it went slightly better than my Aberdeen one.

    As mentioned before, Aberdeen still use your UKCAT score after the interview and I think this is probably where I went wrong as mine was 665. Dundee, on the other hand, completely forget about UKCAT after the interview so I'm hoping that I have a bit more of a chance.

    The weighting of the UKCAT after interview is 20%(still pretty high Id say
    I also got wait-listed by Aberdeen and I'm slightly annoyed how Aberdeen simply puts the majority of applicants in the waiting list while giving out offers to the creme de la creme... The waiting list email was very ambiguous and they didn't even say that we are rejected/unsuccessful, just saying that we can't have offers atm.
    I have no idea how many offers they are giving out atm but it might be easier/better to tell us that we are rejected full stop!
    I'm not too optimistic about Dundee either :/

    Urgh I know, I wish they would just decide my fate now.
    Quite frankly, I'm fed up with the way medical schools select students and I hate how they treat the UKCAT like it's the holy grail.

    And Cmc97, I feel ya. If I don't get anything this year then I will have to take a gap year. But well done to you for having the strength and determination to carry on, I'm certainly going to have a struggle to go through all this again.

    I know what you mean, UKCAT, unlike exams, is pointless and if you get really poor UKCAT, then no matter how many As you get in highers and nat 5, no matter how much WE you've done, no matter how many instruments/sports you play, you are not gonna even get an interview... which I think is quite absurd. A bulls*** 2hr test can change your fate lmao...
    Plus you can't take it again..
    But then I guess there is no other way to separate the applicants... only the entrance exam- UKCAT/BMAT. The medical schools probably know that the UKCAT score is not a clear indication of a student's ability and potential, but would they care? Probably not... They just want the best out of the best
