    Did you call Med UG? or general?
    I just think it was sent to everyone who hasn't heard back lol
    I'd rather think that than find out it was just to some people rather than vice versa

    Thanks for calling but more vague and pointless mind games

    Some could mean all that weren't interviewed. Why would they send to all applicants (including those who have actual interviews)

    I wouldn't put it past them to have a loophole in anything they say

    Seeing as they've already given out reserve interviews, why don't they reject us? -_- It would make it a little easier for us!

    Yeah, I'm being I interviewed as a reserved, thought it was because I'm a resitter though.
    (Original post by tarekb123)
    Yeah i got that too, what were your stats if you dont mind me asking?
    (Original post by Sadieh1997)
    I'm not sure I understand the whole reserve thing even though I've got one. They've said we get the same interview as everyone else if we're a reserve applicant and if we are successful we'll go on a reserve list and may get an offer should places become available later.
    Hope this helps anyone confused.

    I'm predicted A*A*A and my ukcat was 672.5 and I've got a reserve interview. They say its because your achidemic stats are lower so that's ukcat too. I guess they put them all on the same playing field and if your predicted OR achieved grades are lower than other applicants but your PS/references were good then they'll put you up for reserve. That's my understanding of it anyway as from what I can see everyone who's achieved or predicted 3A*'s has got a solid interview. They're giving out interviews till the end of this week so don't panic everyone if you've still not heard anything and good luck!
    Can you guys quote the e-mail you got for this reserve interview?
    Some of us have got one saying 'We are currently holding your application in reserve, pending the outcome of current interviews. If after the first interview rounds we still have places available we will reconsider all pending applications and invite more applicants to interview.'

    Hey, I had a reserve interview, it gave me a time and place then said:

    Due to the high demand and competition for places for entry onto our BMBS programme we would like to make you aware that you have initially been selected for a “reserve” interview. This means that whilst your academic qualifications (predicted or achieved) and/or your UKCAT score are not as high as other candidates for this programme, we recognise your potential and that you may be suitable for the BMBS programme. The interview is the same as that undertaken by all other BMBS applicants. If you are successful at interview, you will be placed on our reserve list for the BMBS programme and, should places become available later, you may be contacted in relation to taking up an offer for the BMBS programme at the University of Exeter Medical School.

    To be honest being reserved is better than being rejected. Its also better than hearing nothing at all (meanwhile they've put you on a reserve list but haven't told you). Last year I didn't get the Bmat cut off for Imperial but they didn't reject me until mid January so I think this is much better (I imagine for some reason they put me on some sort of reserve list but then realised after interviewing others they didn't want me) I wouldn't say they're playing mind games, I'd say they're being honest and to be honest I'm quite impressed with that. So take this reserve thing as a positive, being negative about getting into medical school won't help with the stress of A-levels
