    Do we need to take our GCSE/AS certificates?

    Plymouth asked to see them but it seems as though Exeter don't?

    Although if the 12th has been given out today... presumably tomorrow will be the next working day... the 15th (and last day of interviewing) which surely must be reserved for graduates as they interview 60?

    I'm not sure anymore. They might tell us on the 12th and give us 2 days to buy tickets. haha,

    haha, but really, I think we have just got to wait and hope

    this is what the email says ''Due to the high demand and competition for places for entry onto our BMBS programme we would like to make you aware that you have initially been selected for a “reserve” interview. This means that whilst your academic qualifications (predicted or achieved) and/or your UKCAT score are not as high as other candidates for this programme, we recognise your potential and that you may be suitable for the BMBS programme.''

    Hmmm if they're onto reserve interviews it seems they're done with handing any more out to applicants holding a-levels :/

    Yeah my UKCAT was 678
    A2 predicted: A*A* A
    AS grades: AAAA
    GCSEs : 7A*s and 4A

    what worries me is that after this interview ill be made to wait for 4 months or so before Exeter can make a decision and as im a 'reserve' i highly doubt it will be a decision for an offer!

    Yeah, hopefully we'll get offers from other places so it won't matter. I'm still not sure I understand why they're doing this though.

    Yeah, I'm being I interviewed as a reserved, thought it was because I'm a resitter though.

    All of this isnt making sense, stats please? GCSE AS UKCAT?

    From what I know about exeter requirements, you meet the minimum academic cut off eg predicted AAA/A*AA and have a UKCAT score above the cut off and you're invited for interview?

    What is going on now, I am **** scared. I'm guessing they're handing out interviews randomly?

    I have GCSE:1A*6As3Bs2Cs 2Dis 1Pass
    AS Level: ABBBBB
    A2 Predictions: A*AAB in Maths Chem Bio Gen Studies
    UKCAT - 690 2760 Total

    Im a resit applicant, resat my AS year though

    yeah actually, the ones who have got a 'reserve interview' have actually got 2A*'s and a decent UKCAT compared to the others so this doesn't make any sense at all..
