    When you say people that are in Band 3 are unlikely to get interviews, do you have any quantifiable evidence for this?
    I know some people from the year before who JUST made the cutoff and were invited for an interview. Two of them from the lowest band also got offers!

    What is the possibility of getting an offer after interview? Do they weigh in everything else ie Personal Statment & BMAT results or do they just use interviews?

    BMAT results just determine the order of interview and the facts support the idea that very few Band 3 applicants get offers. Your anecdotal evidence although true paints a misleading picture of the general admissions process.

    At interview they can see all your "stats" and based on your interview performance (mainly) and your stats (less so) offers are allocated.

    Oh I see, I guess that the people I knew must have had a good academic background / personal statement to be able to be called up for interview!

    Thanks a lot for the insight, I better start on the interview practice very quickly after the BMAT!

    My wildest guess is something above 4.5 4.5 2.5C, but it's difficult to tell cause this year more people are taking the BMAT and this might affect the overall scores.

    Hopefully not too high. I think it will be something like 4.6, 4.4 and 2.5B. I'm really stressed out cause my S1 was always around 5... I think I'll die if stupid S1 prevents me from getting interview. Cause I think I scored more than 7 in S2... :/

    Well I'm hoping 3, 3, 1C but probably same as last year? Maybe a bit higher in some sections and lower in others, eg 4.7, 4.4, 2B?
