My score is 6.003 but I self-taught my iGSCEs and had a family member pass away from Stage IV breast cancer. I really want to apply ;/

Hi, I've applied to Birmingham for medicine and just received an email saying that they aim to reply in 15 working days. Does anyone know if this is right as I did not expect to hear anything until December?

I got this too, I think they'll probably get back to us in 15 days to say they're still reviewing the application

I got mine about a day later, I wouldn't worry they'll probably send it tomorrow

I'm thinking Leicester is going to be my first choice. It was nothing amazing (2000) so you're 2 points ahead on Leicester's scoring

Oh wow, we're applying to exactly the same unis, although I'm not a gap-year student Cardiff or Birmingham will most likely be my top choice should I be lucky enough to receive offers from both...

Do you think they'll let us know within the 15 days if they want to invite us to interview ? As I read on there website somewhere that they start interviewing from November which is pretty early.

People won't be getting any offers/rejections for a loonnnngg time. No one has been interviewed yet so don't worry. It may be until April before you here back from a few unis so be prepared to stick it out for a long time. Not much you can do, I'm afraid. We're all in the same boat here though

When applicants receive the same pre-interview score (out of 10), which academic and non-academic factors do Birmingham give the most consideration to when deciding who to interview?

Do they produce a ranking of all candidates and interview the top 1000, for example? ie can it be assumed that every applicant with a very high score, say 9 and above will be interviewed? Or is it possible that an applicant with a 10 score isn't invited to interview as their other features weren't good enough?

ps my score is 8 and I'm trying to decide if I have the best chances of an interview here... I saw that 73% of those interviewed had a score of 8 AND ABOVE :/

Thanks!
