    'Please note that there is no advantage to attending an interview early. We will analyse the interview scores soon after the first set of interviews in the autumn term. Applicants with a mean score in the top 50% (approximately) will receive an offer. Those with mean scores in the bottom 20% (approximately) will be advised that their applications are unsuccessful. The remainder of the interview candidates will be informed of our decision in mid to late March following analysis of all interview data when the precise threshold overall score can be defined.'

    This is from the Birmingham medicine website

    Hope this helps.

    If you meet the criteria are you guaranteed an interview? What are the interview offers based on?

    Do you get entered onto the same course just with lower entry requirements+ the extra a2b module? Or does the course contain a foundation year?

    Lastly, on the website it says they give two offers; one with the usual offer and another with the A2B offer. Does this count as 2 separate applications to medicine on UCAS. So would this be 2 of the 4 medical schools we would be allowed to apply for?

    no your not guaranteed an interview, yes you get entered on the same course and lastly no it only takes up 1/4 places in which u can apply for so you can still apply to 3 other medical schools as well as UoB

    Thank you! Does anyone know if theres a document stating how they process each application? I understand you have to meet criteria but i mean beyond this...

    Also are there a certain number of "places" on the a2b scheme. If so, do you know how many applicants there are per place overall or for medicine in particular?
