    But I didnt apply to nottingham because I was so worried my section 3 would be rubbish well an interview is an interview and a med school is a med school right just thinking that it appears my most unrealistic choice is southampton 5 year which i chose for my back up rather than choosing 3 GAMSAT unis so now I feel like a foool!
    hahaha my bad I miss read your post in my sleepy haze. But 63 will put you in good standing for any of the GAMSAT unis you applied to so I would say you should feel rather confident at the very least for an interview.

    Yeah the medicine application game is really a trade off between playing it safe and playing it risky.

    Isn't swansea usually below the others? Or is that just a fact I've made up in my head? :P

    I thought that too! Though I guess if more people think that and have applied it may have pushed it up

    Usually bellow the others looking at previous years but I am making it a policy not to be excessively hopeful until I see either a confirmed cut off or a rejection/interview email haha. Don't think I could take all that emotional pain!

    Does anyone know if Swansea usually announce their cutoffs before giving interviews? I had a quick look at the 2014 entry thread but no one seemed to mention anything until the interviews were given.

    Said in the other thread that they'd release the cut off today/tomorrow

    They stated in a previous email not to expect anything prior to the week beginning 24th Nov.

    Swansea has had over 1000 applicants this year for their A101 course too so I assume the GAMSAT cut off score would be higher? This may not be the case though

    Well seeing Nottingham just sent out the email saying the cut off is 61 this year think you have a chance. I got bang on 61 so your more competitive than me if that helps any?

    I have applied to Nottingham and havent had any e-mail regarding cut off scores?

    I'm expecting Swansea's cutoff to hit about 59/60.

    Notts emails have taken a while to be delivered, I think their mail server it taking a hammering.

    That's what I'm thinking, which means more than likely no medicine for me. There's always next year.

    Swansea seem to view the application more as a whole. I seem to remember that although the cut off shot up last year, they also had more people interviewed below the cut off score than before. All is not lost

    I got a score of 60 from last year with all my scores in each section above 50... I'm really hoping it's enough. I had an interview at SGUL last year with that score to which i didnt get in.. and this year was hoping to get a interview from nottingham and swansea (I didn't apply to them last year). It's very demoralising, this is my last shot, especially me being 25+ already.
