    Congrats to all you guys with offers.

    Can I ask how many times you've applied before getting offers? I'll be going into my third application, but only been interviewed this year as my first go was more of a trial run...

    Although actually I don't think I can firm it until BSMS have made a decision on my application... should I email them and ask them to reject me?

    This is my first application for postgrad but I did also apply to undergrad four years ago. I didn't get any interviews for my first application. This time I had three interviews (although I was guaranteed my interview at BSMS) and got one waiting list, one offer. Don't give up hope!

    This was my second time applying - last year had three interviews, no offers, no waiting list; this year had four interviews, one offer, one waiting list, and waiting on the other two.

    First time, 4 interviews, 4 offers, and a whole lot of issues with my academic background (2:2 degree, poor GCSES and A Levels) but I applied to where I met the minimum requirements and the entry exams got me to interview.

      First time applying: 3 interviews, 1 rejections, 1 offer and 1 waiting list.

      I thought you could withdraw the choices on UCAS you don't want so you are just left with the option you do want - even if you don't have decisions from them...if you click view, you then get the option to permanently withdraw. Then you can firm the one you have left...

      My UCAS still hasn't updated, but I do have the letter - should I contact them or give it a couple of days?

      Ooh, that would be handy. I might give UCAS a call later and check how would be best to do that. Don't want to accidentally reject all of them which is a big worry of mine.

      I just had my parents read out my results, I got 1,2,1,1,1,1

      That SGUL rejection doesn't hurt so much now!

      I got the same. Although found it rather amusing that my 2 was for work experience - I've worked as a HCA for nearly three years in Outpatients, Wards, Theatre, X-ray and also administration... Doesn't matter though as got the offer anyways!

      Yup, I'll never understand it - last year, I got a *4* for my work experience - I've worked in hospitals for over 10 years, and a *4* for enthusiasm... why would I bother applying at all if I wasn't enthusiastic about the job!!!

      Wow much better than mine! I got 3,2,1,2,2,2 - I wonder how close to being wait listed I was!

      I'm pretty certain the scores mean little when it comes to interview bands; A, B and C. There's certainly an element of the process which Nottingham haven't thoroughly explained, though I can understand why they don't give us completely unrestricted access to their process.
      I say this because there's no way I should have an offer with my score on it's own.

      I reckon you're just being modest! What was your score? I suppose your score could have been the lowest of the band you were in and then your GAMSAT score brought you up to the top of that band. Well done anyway!

      Zorg, what did you get for your GAMSAT? That's supposed to push it up?

      I'm really not. There are wait listers with much higher scores than me.

      63, even so you have to make the bands first. If there isn't something they are not telling us, either there were a lot of people scoring towards the extremes and I managed to sneak in or there has been an admin error...
