    Surely they'd probably select on UKCAT in the same way they did before? In reality, who not working in Warwick admissions knows
    Well I was thinking that they've ranked us on UKCAT and academics and some people were tied for score so they sent out the work experience forms, 1) for confirmation and 2) to eliminate some people that were tied. And now loads of people have the work experience, so people are still tied and now they need to chose using different criteria?

    They seem to be using a scoring system out of 30 at least in years past https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque..._a101_medicine so it's conceivable there could be a lot of tied applicants. Why would they not just use raw UKCAT or UKCAT VR scores as a tie-break? Otherwise they're going to have to dig through work experience forms, references and personal statements.

    This wait is becoming terrifying. Not only is Warwick not giving any sign of life, Cambridge promised to get back to us this week!

    Sort of happy that we are all in the same boat, feel hugged guys!

    You will have received an email at the time of application from Barts with the subject line "Your Applicant Portal - Queen Mary University of London"
    There are log in details to the candidate portal within that email that should work?
    Thank you so much! I completely forgot about the email they sent us back in October. Interview booked for 19th January

    Cambridge had a "processing error" so decisions are now going out early next week. The wait is torturous and my hope is fading pretty fast...!

    Well if they leave it to Friday and their IT system for reserving dates glitches all hell could break loose so I reckon they have to do it tomorrow.

    Who else think we should be compensated by being given an interview?

    So Southampton interviewed this week and considering I haven't heard anything at all from them, it's safe to assume my application was unsuccessful?

    The year before last they put on an extra interview date for BM4 as they didn't get enough high caliber applicants on the first round of interviews. Seeing as I don't think I did very well, there may still be hope if others fell below the offer mark. Fingers crossed for you!!
