    Does anybody know what proportion of applicants get interviews?
    And how likely you are to get a place if you get an interview?

    All the details are in that link for every uni.

    Got my interview tomorrow at 11am, kinda worried because I had a mock interview the other day. The guy said I was quite good but that my answer for why medicine makes it seems quite weak and the fact that I have never shadowed a doctor puts it at a disadvantage.

    I know how to answer any questions about King's being a 3rd year biomed at King's and ethical questions don't scare me much, it's just trying to justify why I still want to do medicine despite not shadowing a doctor that scares me so much.

    I just hope I can stay confident throughout the interview.

    hurry up kings, i sent my application on the 12th september 10A*s gcse AAAAA stunning ps but lower ukcat (725)
    I'm sure with those stats you'll hear in good time. Is that a typo? In the Barts thread I thought I remembered you getting over 800 in your UKCAT? But either way with 10 A*s I'm sure anything over 710-ish is safe. How's prep for your Bart's interview going?

    Hello all, good luck to everyone! I was just wondering what my chances are of a King's interview: 13A*s GCSE, AAAA at AS, I was quite happy with my PS, the only thing I am worried about is my UKCAT- 710. I know it's above average but tbh I think King's seem to put a lot of emphasis on it as every interview offer I have seen so far is people getting 750+. Any ideas?

    I've got an interview at King's with 740. I have two friends who also have interviews and one has 720 and the other 700. Don't worry bro, you'll hopefully be part of one of the interview cycles.

    Thanks guys. At least by being early I could be a bit more helpful for those who still have yet to be interviewed and explain what to expect without giving too many details.

    Thanks man, that makes me feel a bit better. Do you think it's just random selection then? There seems to be no real order to the offers e.g., some people still have no interview invitations with 800+ UKCAT or 10A*+ GCSEs etc.

    9 A* 2 As. 800 UKCAT Band 2 and the same a levels as you :-)

    I think they MAY be inviting lower UKCATs first. High GCSEs + Low UKCATS first, then in jan maybe we'll get our interviews (fingers crossed)
