    Haha it's driving me crazy too. They reopened today after the Christmas break so It might be within the next week or so. Fingers crossed

    Has anyone who hadn't heard before, heard at all about more interviews/rejections? I've still not heard anything.

    I've just withdrawn from my interview at Birmingham on account of being given another offer which I intend to accept (and I thought this would be fairer on everybody involved). Hope someone gets the opportunity instead. Good luck for next week everyone!

    Thanks! I've heard lots of good things about the medical school at Birmingham - it is a great place to study, no doubt about that. Best of luck for your interview!

    Hi, I have not heard anything either. Trying to be patient, debating whether I should call them and ask so i can know already. The wait is killing me. If they were going to hand out rejections, I wish they would do it early so I plan for what I can do instead! :'(

    so I did call admissions and I was told that the last interviews are end of February, 20something (don't remember precisely). I'm guessing we will find out this week; Universities tend to send out interview invites 4 weeks prior to the actual date. Fingers crossed, either way, i just want to know now. Holding on to the thought that no rejection yet is a good sign
    good luck everyone!

    Hey yeah our interview group had a quick chat to admissions before we went into the interview and Austin spruce said they are Interviewing 7or 8 at the end of February ? I'm not sure why there is a massive gap and couldn't do everyone in January but that's what I heard so good luck and it may be more than that!

    Thank you for confirming this! May i ask how many candidates there are in an interview group?
    And did Austin Spruce say there may be more than 7 or 8?
    Hope your interview went well and you get accepted into your first choice!

    he didn't say more! I think they do some more at the end of feb based on the fact that some people didn't pitch up to interviews and withdrew which opens up some gaps for some lucky people ! Thank you I really want it . It's an amazing school I loved it. And 6 people in a group . My group was lovely and we all got on so well. Hope you get a spot

    Yes, I think you are right, and indeed those few people are lucky! I'm assuming they interview the top few on their waiting list, I don't have high hopes though, I have a 2:1 in Psychology and my A Level grades in science weren't brilliant; Chemistry D, Biology C.
    Just out of interest, do you mind sharing what your A Level grades were (and I would love it if others answered this question too).

    I'm glad you had a nice group and thanks for taking the time out to answer my questions!

    I'm still waiting to hear and I have a 1st in Medical Sciences and A*AAB at A-Level. Trying to be hopeful!

    Thank you so much Catherine for taking the time out to answer my questions, it means a lot to me (i don't know of anyone else applying to Birmingham for A10). Thanks and good luck!
