    Yeah i know there's really no point in trying to figure out how they're deciding but I just can't stop thinking about it Fingers crossed for after christmas though!
    Believe me, I know exactly how you feel, it's definitely easier said than done :L

    It COULD be just random.

    I know this opinion has been criticised, but there is a possibility that they are inviting highest UKCAT scorers last. I know people with really high UKCAT scores (800+) have interviews but that may be because they also happen to have 10A*+ at GCSE.

    I will put this theory to bed immediately if someone with greater than 800 ukcat and less than 10 a* has an interview

    I'm afraid I know someone in my year with 8A* 4A and 810 ukcat who has a December interview, so it isn't that straightforward.

    Hmm that's strange. In my year, there's a guy with 840 UKCAT and 9 A* who hasn't got an interview. I've also seen his PS and I remember being very impressed when I read it.

    As horrible as it sounds we will only know what the cutoffs are when the rejections roll out. Best we can do is check portal and hope, if you have other interviews focus on them because they may be your only shot!

    Hey guys. My interview is tomorrow. Just like to ask anyone who's done the interview already whether you actually do have to write an essay? None of the documents I was sent through the portal mention an essay. Only a questionnaire and ethical case study.
