    It wasn't my intention to prove anyone right or wrong, just wanted to help you guys as much as I could.

    I would also like to add that I emailed barts before applying specifically asking if they count
    General studies, OCR nationals and FSMQ to which they responded that if its in the tariff tables they will award points for it.

    Probably trolling. It's pathetic when they take it that far!

    my best guess would be that they started looking at Personal statement/reference due to the UKCAT screw up this year

    I somehow think that they have started looking at personal statements too! But how did the UKCAT screw up this year?

    Out of interest, do you know that they have definitely given you the points for the OCR National after that email?

    I personally doubt it's the PS/reference, I just think their 'cut-off' will go up!

    The extra time given for DA (for confidence ratings) which meant very high scores in DA, which thus meant very high averages.

    Guys, It's non of my business to interfere here but guys, stay calm. Just simply call them to ask tomorrow about anything you might want to. Honestly, arguing on tsr wouldnt solve anything

    No, my OCR nationals was level 2 and did not give any UCAS points, which I told them. They replied saying:

    Dear X,

    Thank you for your reply.
    We now proceed on the assessment of your UCAS application.

    Best wishes

    I was thinking the exact same thing- there's no point trying to work out on what basis people are getting rejected. And i'm pretty sure QM are not going to explain the admissions process.

    Yeah that would explain why they've taken longer this year to start sending interviews/rejections too

    Look up fair admissions principles. Transparency is key to a good admissions policy.
    What do they mean by transparency?

    I think this is the most reasonable explanation, I really hope it's true, it would explains loads...Not been rejected yet but expecting it.

    UCAS tariff: 660
    UCKAT: 660

    On UCAS they merely state you have been rejected 'due to increased competition' which is wholly ambiguous. Does this mean that my application was fine and normally I would have been given an interview just they had too many applicants or I'm not even sure what else? I shall be on to them first thing in the morning to find out!

    I'm a graduate but my UKCAT was 685 which although I realise not ridiculously high it would have got me an interview last year
