    Truthfully, you may struggle as your UKCAT is below average, you do have great GCSEs and academic qualifications which may give u a shot with the sliding scale but kings do put a lot of weight on the UKCAT and yours isn't as competitive as others. Hopefully I'm wrong and you'll be fine but I'm just talking from seeing friends apply here and last years thread.

    Why does it feel like all the medical schools are starting to hand out interviews EXCEPT the ones I applied to?!?!

    I know the feeling, the wait is nothing short of torture. My BMAT went really bad and all my hopes are pinned on KCL. I hope they start interviewing soon.

    Woah you applied to 3 BMAT unis?
    At this point, I'm more pissed off/frustrated than anxious/nervous that King's is taking their own sweet time processing our applications. Arghhh

    Hi, I've applied to Kings with 737.5 on the UKCAT, 9A*s and 1A and GCSE and 4A's at AS. Does anyone know whether Kings looks at individual scores on the UKCAT as my abstract reasoning was pretty bad.

    I'm not too fussed about the lack of reply - even if Kings' first interviews are right at the start of December, the first round of replies probably still wouldn't be for another week or so. I haven't had responses from any unis yet, but I wish they'd just hurry up!

    I thought the first batch of interviews start in late November all the way until the 19th of December until they break for Christmas? If that's the case (and if they are sticking to the 2 weeks notification period), invites should start going out late this week/next week at the latest.

    Theory: Ridiculously high UKCAT:GCSE scorers were invited to interview first. We don't know this because they don't procrastinate on TSR. XP

    hahaha true that! I know a few people with 12A* and above 800 UKCAT, who never use TSR! Thankfully they didn't apply to King's though

    Hi
    I got 6A* 4A B at gcse
    Predicted A* A* A A at a2
    780 in UKCat
    Will the fact that I came from a state school be considered for the lack of all A*s at gcse? or do they not even care where you come from just the grades?
    also I took maths early which is one of my A* is this going to hold me back?

    Thanks
