    If you don't get interviewed don't be upset as Bristol is one of the most competitive I have seen for medicine with approximately 18 applications per place! !
    Probably because, up to this year, Bristol did not require UKCAT. It does now so probably application numbers will slow down a bit.

    Btw, if you get an interview, do you have to pay from your own money to make your way down to Bristol or do they reimburse you or what?

    All interviews (at any Uni) are at your expense - but if you are in financial difficulty : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/fees-fundin...ravel-bursary/

    When do Bristol start giving out interviews and pre interview rejections?
    Once the UKCAT scores are processed I assume. But it will be gradual process with invites not going out all in one lump.
    And unless you simply dont meet the entry requirements, rejections will probably not go out until all interview places are filled, ie. New Year.

    Please can someone tell me how Bristol give offers... is this solely based on interview performance or is the pre-interview score (70/20/10% of PS/academics/UKCAT) combined with the interview score to decide who to offer a place?

    Thanks!

    It's hard to stop checking track even though I know UKCAT results don't get sent until November

    Yeah. Then they start sorting through applications so the EARLIEST you will be contacted for interview etc will be December. Then your interview can be between December and February. Then you got offered/rejected around March.


    Tough life
