    Would you mind helping me calculate mine? I think it's between 50-52 but I'm not entirely sure.

    My top 8 GCSEs were A*s
    My UKCAT-
    VR- 720
    QR- 880
    AR- 860
    DA- 740
    SJT- band 2
    What score does that give me?
    Yeah sure

    So basically you would get 16/16 for academics since you got A*'s
    VR- 8
    QR- 9
    AR - 9
    DA- 8
    BAND 2 - 2

    So adding all that up would be

    16+8+9+9+8+2 = 52

    So yeah, you got 52/55

    (On a side note, can I just say that I am so jealous of you right now.)

    I got 835 band 1 but 2 sections were 890 the other 2 were 770 and 790 so they just fall short of the top points for that sections. So we have the same UKCAT score but I got 1 more point for SJT. You got 2 more points for GCSEs.

    Ah right. Funny how the scoring system works- you're clearly the better candidate yet you have one less point than me. Weird XD
    Where else have you applied?

    They should have provided you with a link on to the mynottingham page in the acknowledgement email, which lets you enter your own password and log in. I don't think we've been told to upload anything on there unless they send an email telling us to. I'm pretty sure they will send out an email telling us to upload references or evidence of our work experience placements on there at some point this month. 😄

    I've just checked on the mynottingham page, and although they've got my correct date of birth, the actual age it gives me is a year older than I actually am. Is this normal (ie they're doing how old I will be on entry) or something I need to worry about (although since they've got the correct DOB so it doesn't seem like too big a deal?)?
    Also, a bit more worryingly, they've got my country of birth wrong (ie it says GBR when I was born in South Africa) and it hasn't given me a birth location (England has been my place of permanent residence for about 16 years though). Do I need to contact them about this or does it not matter? Thanks

    I also read mine and it also had me a year older so I think that they are doing age at entry or something like that. But I think regarding your country of birth you should just phone up or email them, just in case it does somehow matter, at least then you wouldn't have to feel so worried

    I'm assuming you haven't logged onto your"mynottingham" account yet? Have you checked your junk/spam folder? If so, you may want to ring them up to let them know just to be on the safe side, although it should probably indicate whether your application is being dealt with on track. Don't worry too much about it!
