    I got the same email, they probably just sent it in case people hadn't seen the initial confirmation email

    Exactly the same. I got the initial one and then the 2nd one a few days later. They were otherwise identical

    Just said your applicAtion will be considered by the admissions tutor, keep checking your emails and Ontrak and how the time they take will vary. It wasn't a medicine specifc email just for all Newcastle uni applicants

    Yeah, they seem to be doing it in descending order, with those who have the highest UKCAT getting one first. I saw someone on here say they've got an interview at Newcastle on the 20th of this month!!!

    In your opinion is my score of 767.5 likely to be easily above the ukcat threshold

    I wouldn't say "easily", but I'd be very surprised if it wasn't. The thing I'd be worried about if I were you is the fact that they appear to be interviewing in order of UKCAT score (rather than randomly like they used to), as they might be giving out offers 'first come first served' until they run out of places (like Southampton are doing this year) rather than waiting until they've seen everyone. Then again, they said nothing to indicate that they were planning on doing this at the open day, so you should be fine.

    Thanks, I'm not taking anything for granted because the ukcat average went up by around 35 this year, but seeing as newcastle's cut off was 695 last year I should be fine

    newcastle said once at the interview stage ukcat score is ignored so no extra advantage there but I see your point about the offers, But as long as I get an interview I have a chance, my ukcat score is clearly in the top 10% nationally so if be suprised too

    have you applied to newcastle

    I haven't heard about anyone getting interviews from any of those, the best thing to do is check their websites, it'll always tell you on there

    Perhaps the case of the girl whose parents disagreed about whether to give her the MMR vaccine?

    Or the case where a mother refused to consent to intervention for her son's brain tumour and the Court overruled her...?
