    So far the lowest score they've invited is 690-693 so applicants above this can breathe. (Home applicants)
    Where did you hear this and are you sure that these people were normal undergraduates??(not PARTNERS)

    Don't worry, if your UKCAT score is similar to the ones being invited to interview and you've not made a massive mistake in applying by not meeting the minimum entry requirements (which are fairly reasonable) you'll get an interview. Newcastle are very transparent with their applications process so there's no smoke and mirrors when it comes to deciding if you're likely to get an interview or not - especially now they've started inviting UKCAT scores similar to yours.
    Do you think the next people called for interview will be for 12-16 december batch or the january batch?

    Quoted from the Newcastle Medicine Admissions Policy:

    "The Widening Access routes of entry may attract a different UKCAT threshold to the standard application route of entry."

    The threads from previous years support this view ie; applicants applying through this route have been offered interviews with a lower UKCAT threshold than through the standard route.

    I'm reapplying to Newcastle via partners- I got an interview last year with 607 ave. Must have been the lowest one (oops!). This year I brought it up to 638, soo, a bit better. Hoping for an interview but I don't want to jinx things!! Also hope MMI is a bit better. I'm an access to Leeds applicant too if anyone else is!

    Technically it does if they lower the UKCAT cutoff for partners applicants, but I get where you're coming from

    there's a seperate thread on tsr for partners if you'd like to talk about this there as it's more relevant

    Hey, i applied thinking every school permitted AS resits as I need to resit C1 and C2. Problem is i put those grades as pending with my overall AS grade as a B. Will they instantly reject me based on this? Or since I havent resat yet will they inform me of this? Or do i need to call them up?
    Only asking because Sheffield say u need to do A levels on the 'first attempt' but they allow modular resits. Newcastle say the same thing so i assumed they allowed it as well

    Thank you so much!

    Last time i checked (earlier today), the last date i.e. friday 16th december is all boked up - i understand everyone was desperate to get the latest slot possible so they have more time to prepare unfortunately i'm working on that day otherwise i'd totally have done the same......

    The monday (12th) slots are still available, as are tuesdays and wdnesdays. Thursday afternoon is booked but am is still available.
