    I think they look at everything and give points to each part. I guess not just ukcat, 690 is a very good score!

    I know right!!! I got 717.5 so whatever they were looking at, it definitely wasn't the UKCAT because I haven't heard from them either.

    Nope!

    how are you feeling about it?, I must say I prefer panel interviews to MMIs but 15 minutes is a bit short to "sell" yourself to them and the interview seems really intense- they could ask us anything

    I've had two MMIs and quite liked them and my Plymouth panel went bad so not sure, think I like the sort of stuff they've mentioned the interview will be about though, but yeah 15 minutes is so short!

    I got like 690, straight As at GCSE and 5 years dental nursing experience so apparently they're not looking for genuine passion or commitment to the field either
    God knows what they're looking for.:dry: Just think of it as they have missed out on something great and not the other way round.

    I got the same in response to an email I sent yesterday.
    Absolutely gutted. Sheffield was my only option as nowhere else regards my nursing as entry.
    I'm unsubscribing from this thread now because I can't deal with the notifications reminding me that I just wasted 2 years and 3k on education!
    Wish everyone best of luck at interview though!

    Why didn't you apply to an undergraduate course for dentistry, I am sure you would have stood a chance?!

    What do you mean?
    I only applied to Sheffield after contacting all dental schools and being told that my dental nursing cannot substitute an A level and the requirement would still be AAA. There was no way I was ever going to get that and I couldn't go back to college full time because I couldn't not work, so I did the 2 A levels Sheffield wanted, wanting me to get BB and I am predicted AB.

    Spoke to Sheffield and they said that when the rejections come onto ucas roughly around March time, it will have general feedback on why u were rejected and you will have the option to write to the uni.

    Well it should appear on UCAS when they change the status to unsuccessful which would send an automated email. I'm not sure if Sheffield will send their own emails out or just update ucas tho

    Has anyone had a rejection yet? I didn't get called for interview so I'm guessing I have been rejected, but haven't yet got an email

    Yeah hate to say it but you will have been rejected, I've been in contact with the admissions office and all successful applicants received email invitations last week, however they don't update UCAS track until sometime in March apparently.
    I do think it's really bad that they don't send a courtesy thanks but no thanks type email if they don't want you
