    There's an option when booking your interview to say you can't attend these dates. They'll eventually give you another one, don't worry. I did this and have mine in January

    That makes sense - people whose applications were assessed after the UKCAT release would have only gotten the initial acknowledgment email then.

    At least those of us who got that email know that our applications have been viewed or are currently being viewed.

    I don't think anybody's gotten rejections though?
    Yeah that's the last email I got - nothing else since. Not even the still considering one.

    A quick question that I'm sure must have been already answered, but does anyone know how many interviews they give out compared to how many offers they give out? Thanks!

    It varies each year and Bristol don't have records, but someone said there was about 1/3 chance of getting an offer taking into account people that don't attend interviews towards the end of the cycle etc

    They have a date 19th Nov, £10 more, but that's really not too much extra

    I believe they're implementing a new syllabus for next year so it's hard to find stuff

    From their page I understood that it will be integrated with early patient contact. But there is not much else on the website.

    To all those who like me have only had an acknowledgment email from Bristol, please see this

    Yes. I was THAT paranoid person who emailed to confirm they had definitely received my ukcat - I did ring ukcat and they weren't helpful...

    Helloooo
    I've heard of people receiving interview offers for Bristol. I haven't heard back yet so I'm feeling very nervous; any opinions?
    GCSEs 5A*6A
    AS AAAA
    A2 AAB- B in chemistry, which I am repeating and informed the uni, they accept resits.
    UKCAT avg 670
    I work as a care assistant in a nursing home, and have voluntary experiences in India and will be volunteering in Africa next month. I worked v hard on my personal statement and can only hope I've done enough
