    From what I saw (and my interview) looked like they were all for the 8th/9th/10th December, which is close to the same batch?

    Ohh Yehh true true, so maybe they'll send off interviews for that week first. Then maybe in a few weeks time they'll start sending invites for the week after!

    Hi all! I was in the same position as you this time last year.
    With the help of Tania<3 it was much easier.
    So thought I'll help out this year as well.
    Any questions don't hesitate to message me.
    Good luck!

    Well, if you don't mind sharing... What were your stats? As in A Level results (AS and A2) and UKCAT? Also, did you get any offers other than St Georges? Thanks!!

    A-levels:
    AAAAB

    AS at the time I applied:
    AAAA (had completed an a-level earlier)

    UKCAT:
    717.5

    Offers for medicine:
    Only got St. G but a reserve offer from Imperial depending on if I got any other offers. It was a bit strange.

    Thanks! What were the other unis you applied to and did you get any interviews? I've applied for St George's, UEA, Keele and Barts, so I'm just wondering if you have any experiences with these unis...?

    Hi I didn't apply for the others for medicine so I can't tell you much about them. But from what I know of Barts they have higher standards for UKCAT then St. George's to expect the cut off ukcat for Barts to be higher.

    I got no other interviews, St. G was my only one.

    What was the Interview process like? I heard a lot of people on the waiting list last year got offers (I'm not 100% sure in this though) do you know if it happens for 2013 entry as well?

    Hey, how does SGUL decide who to give offer to after interview? Is it purely dependent on the interview score?

    640 avg. (2560 overall) so im guessing the wait is gonna be a long one since theyre called people in the region of 700 atm
    Wbu?
    I don't think it's done like that. They said that, at this point, they are looking at the academic achievements of those who scored above the cutoff.

    It said on their email that they are looking at our applications.

    On their website it says that the UKCAT is used to make a cut-off and to rank the post-interview waiting list, which is basically madde up of people who don't receives offers or rejections straight away.

    If you look at the UKCAT deciles, less people made the cut off this year compared to last year. So more chances of getting interviews
