    What are they looking at when they ask for AS grades? Will they judge you heavily on your average UMS, becasue mine wasnt great compared to others (about 86), or will they be more interested in something like even though I got a B in chemistry last year, it was very very close to an A?
    I wouldn't worry too much, I have an interview and my ums was probably around 85-86.
    They are probably more looking at whether you'll be able to reach the entry requirements in the summer.

    My UMS was 95% so a case in point of UMS not making a drastic difference - I still have not received an interview from UCL

    Thanks for the reassurance. Do you know how many interviews and subsequent offers have been given already? I'm under the impression that a majority have passed, which is why I'm mostly worried. I just hope I get a shot

    If we look at the dates UCL emailed us a while back, if I remember correctly the latest interview date shows they are around halfway through the dates so at least half the interviews are yet to be given out.

    Keep your hopes up, you'll be fine 😊

    Do UCL tend to ask Oxbridge style questions ?

    I really hope not, I think it's mainly based around your PS and the BMAT essay.

    Keep telling myself need to chill and stop worrying but I do remember the email they sent a while back stated majority of the interviews for gap year applicants are around January-ish, so haven't heard anything and didn't get asked about UMS or work experience at all... Got rejected from two other unis already with 3A*s and an A and BMAT 5.7 6.2 2.5A, really don't know what to do anymore, i think hope is perhaps running out for UCL, just hope they know secretly that I love medicine so much and love the university too😂

    I've got an interview on 27th Jan. Got 12A*s at GCSE, BMAT was 5.4, 6.9, 3A, 95% UMS average and predicted A*A*A*A*.

    Does anyone have any advice for the interview? I just got rejected post-interview from Imperial. I don't know what on earth went wrong and I am really nervous about UCL.
    I am really sorry to hear that, how did you feel that your Imperial interview went?

    I honestly thought it was fine. I could have been a little less nervous and more outgoing, but it wasn't a poor performance. I mean I have to move on because there's nothing I can do about it, I'm trying to ask for feedback but it really didn't add up when I got the news

    Oh thanks for the comforting news, they did say most gap years will be interviewed in January and they emailed saying all the January interviews are full😂don't know what to do and they've started giving out late February ones already, I just wonder if there's anybody in the same boat, the wait is killing me slowly
