    that's true when I was applying I used my university's careers centre and they were great. But medic friends might actually be even better in giving you practical support and advice
    Definitely a resource I'll be using for interview prep (hopefully if I get any!) unfortunately they didn't provide a one to one service for personal statement s

    According to last year´s from it was around the 26th of November so be prepared to wait

    rejections don´t seem to come out until march/april when uni´s need to meet their UCAS deadlines which i find quite harsh on the ones that don´t get interview invitations.

    Hi there.
    Just want to ask if anyone has received some sort of welcoming email...
    I didn't apply for Glasgow when I submitted my application, and I replaced one of my choices with Glasgow, but I haven't received any message from them about my application---is this normal or there is something wrong?

    I think we're told around a week before the interviews, so most likely the beginning of December.

    Any idea if Glasgow lets you choose what date or change it if you get an interview?

    Yeah I reckon they'll start sending interview invites over the next few days

    Anyone know from previous years of Glasgow give out early rejections? Or do they tend to wait until March time?

    Last year, they sent interviews and waited until january/february before sending rejections. I think they aren't rejected early, cuz they're on the waiting list.

    Do you mind sharing your UKCAT and grades 😂

    They used to select the top 600-700 highest UKCAT students for an interview, but i think they changed that now.

    Yeah I've been told they now look at your application as a whole and score your PS before etc before they add on your UKCAT? I think in previous cycles they were more ukcat heavy but I could be wrong there.

    Yeah, i guess it's better for most students this way.
    What is your UKCAT score, if you don't mind me asking?

    It really has not changed. I went to their open day and spoken to admissions there, if your grades pass their minimum requirements and your personal statement is decent, they just rank your ukcat. Probably not the best for everyone but it's what they do
