    Anyone think there might be more interviews given out over the next few days? Looks unlikely now

    so it seems that those who aren't resits have to have A*A*A minimum and those are resit candidates have to have A*AA. absolutely gutted
    Hey, they say that resitters are treated the same as those with predicted/achieved grades so there will be one cutoff for everybody, not different cutoffs for different people! (Think about it, why would they favour resitters?)

    If what everyone has said is true, if you have A*AA and an average ukcat you should be fine. Just wait and see. A few days ago I was sure that something had changed in the selection process, but then I received one today! The 12th and 15th are still open for sure, and there may be some feb interviews yet! I know it's difficult, but just keep waiting patiently and I'm sure you'll be ok!

    Interview!!! So happy as I honestly didn't expect to get one here because of my low UKCAT:

    GCSEs: 8A* 3A 1B
    Y12 Results: Aaaaa
    Y13 Predicteds: A*A*A*A*a
    UKCAT: 667.5
    Standard UK School Leaver
    Interview is on 12th, Received at 1:10 today

    Good luck to everyone else - it does seem like you need at least one, preferably two A* predicteds this time around, but looking at some of the UKCAT scores that are getting interviews, it's almost as if they've set very little weighting on it this year. Unless they're ranking applicants by UKCAT alongside interview scores post-interview to decide who to make offers to?

    Do not get my hopes up like that I'm 99% sure they'll just do it on interview performance, it seems like most unis have pretty low ukcat scores this time round!

    Congrats on your interview also, your ukcat is not low!! A 2014 667.5 is a 2013 710. #Baller

    I just got my interview email today!
    Its for next Friday (12th) and in Truro- anyone have any idea what that means? (other than a hell of a trainfare!)
    I also didn't go to the open day and though I am trying to find out as much as I can about Exeter as a place to live, and the course etc, i can't see much, any tips?
    Very nervous now, but exciting

    Haha thanks xD It's so tricky to compare this year's figures to last years - I guess they seem far worse than they actually are lol! I know Plymouth only use interview performance when they make offers, but I had a feeling that Exeter used interview performance and UKCAT, but I might be thinking of somewhere else :/
