    Does Biology A , chemistry A, psychology A & Spanish A, make strong application as it's without Physics or Maths ?

    Hey guys, hope interviews have been going well. I had my interview / offer for 2015 but I decided to defer my entry until 2016.

    Just to give you an idea of time scales - my interview invitation came on the 10th Dec, my interview date was 22nd Jan and I got my offer on 10th Feb. I have a friend who didn't have his interview until the end of February. Hope this helps

    The fact that you have As in both Biology and Chemistry is a pretty awesome; i'd be confident about my application. But then again, you'd need a first of a very high 2:1, i think 67% and above, to apply.Not sure what different physics and maths would make, it's worth emailing admissions.Good luck with your application

    birmingham have strong academic focus so you need to meet their minumum grades on the website and show that you push yourself. you have great experience though even though its not volunteering. maybe try get a few days in other areas or do a short volunteer thing and you will make a good candidate for GEM. the bulk of my experience was paid work

    haha, i didn't get the survey, but i always get a mini heart attack when i get a notification about an email from UCAS. So, you aren't along.

    The wait is killing me, I was sure they would have responded by now!

    Has anyone not heard anything since the generic "we are still considering you" email from the 18th of November?
    And has anyone been rejected for any other reason than not already having finished their degree?

    Makes me feel better that I'm not alone...

    I haven't lost hope yet- Birmingham do multiple interview batches and the inactivity on this forum makes the think a lot of people still haven't heard and there may still be interviews coming.

    Looks like Bham is finalising their 2016 GEM applicants. I think if no one has heard back at this point it's most likely that you were unsuccessful....

    But maybe, just maybe..... there is still some chance for a late Feb interview!

    Goof luck all!

    Just got a rejection

    Going to ask why tomorrow. Hopefully i will get an answer that isn't generic.

    Pretty heartbroken, but might as well put energy into preparing for my 2017 application. This was my 2nd year in a row as well. Need to start job hunting.

    Medicine for me, is the dream and cannot imaging doing anything else. I for one, am not giving up just yet.

    Good luck to everyone for next year.

    Do you have significant clinical experience? Just a thought - might be worth building that area of your application if not.
