    I know some medical schools will still let you in if you get AAB and are only a few UMS off.

    Hey, i've been rejected and am taking a gap year and reapplying. I'm thinking about Plymouth for next year. Anyone who was invited for interview or received an offer please could you tell me what your stats were? Also will Plymouth be sticking with panel interviews or switching to MMI next year? And well done everyone who got in

    I can't help with regards to next years interviews, as I've no idea. I had the panel interview and thought it wasn't too bad! I was originally wait listed, then offered a place in February. I'm a graduate, so my stats might not be helpful for you. I had a 2:2 with a 66 in my Gamsat. In regards to A Levels, I imagine it's 3 A's minimum!

    Hi
    I was interviewed in November, put on hold, and then given an offer (AAA) in February.
    Stats:
    GCSE: 6A* 5A
    Achieved A2: AAB (resitting the B, predicted A*)
    UKCAT: 727.5 Band 2 (790 740 740 640)

    Plymouth don't seem to indicate any future changes to their admissions process on their website, so AFAIK the interview will be panel like it was this year. Things might have changed by October though, so check again nearer the time of applying or contact admissions if you're worried.
    Good luck with everything!

    Was interviewed in November and got an offer in December!
    Stars:
    GCSEs: 3A*8A
    A2 predicted: AAA (Chem, bio & econ)
    UKCAT: 690 band 1

    Hope this helps, and good luck!

    Interviewed in November, Offer in December (Declined since I'm going to Leicester)

    GCSEs: 7A*, 2A, 2B

    A2 Predicted Grades: 3A* (Chem, Bio, Maths)

    UKCAT: 675 Band 2

    I had really good work experience in a hospital for a week so that might have helped.

    Thanks everyone for all the replies! So helpful do plymouth make offers just based on interview performance or does it count for 50% or something? I've tried their website but i haven't found much on their selection process..

    If I remember correctly, if you meet the ukcat cut off and minimum entry requirements, you will be invited to interview and then when they give out offers, it's based solely on interview performance. Good luck applying! It seems like a great place to study and everyone is really friendly, unfortunately defined my offer and went for Newcastle but it was a tough decision!

    I think decisions are heavily weighted on the interview.

    They definitely took at least one student on AAB this year but, as with all med schools, a powerful interview performance combined with a fantastic application and a great deal of luck will be necessary to pull this off…

    Good luck!

    After interview, as far as we know, they draw a line in the sand based solely on your interview score and you find yourself on one side of it. If your toes are almost touching it then you get onto the waiting list and hope that things go wrong for someone else
    best of luck!

    I like the look of Astor House and Radnor. Also is there anyway to get an idea of room size without actually going down to visit?

    Morning!

    Glad to hear that you're considering living with us at Astor House. Is there a specific room you were interested in the size?
