    Sorry to hear, when did you get rejected? Have you called them up and asked why?

    What is the assumed cut off for graduates as we don't have any UCAS points?

    Also gave any other UK graduates been rejected yet?

    I don't really get your question but I didn't pass AS since I'm not in UK.
    There we go. The requirements are AAAb and you do not have a fourth subject so that's probably where you didn't meet the requirements

    There have been some graduates that have been rejected. I've not heard anything yet. Eeek, it's Monday and now the rejections/invitations waiting game starts! Good luck!!

    I just spoke to admissions and asked them what it meant 'due to increased competition' and they said that means that you haven't achieved the required UKCAT. Grrrrrr

    So I just rang...

    They said that they have no way of telling me what my tariff score was or what qualifications were included in the calculation (helpful). They did say though, that the UKCAT cut-off, which changes every year, was above my UKCAT score of 710. They said that they have an algorithm that makes it a 50/50 split between UKCAT and UCAS tariff, but that my 710 UCAS tariff was unable to make up for my UKCAT.

    Although they couldn't actually confirm whether or not they'd counted all of my qualifications, which is all I wanted them to do. Sigh. Hopefully they'll be more helpful via email.

    I'm bound to be rejected as a graduate who got rejected had a UKCAT of 700 - 30 less than mine

    I am confused... so did they say you got rejected with 710 tariffs and 710 UKCAT?

    Well they assured me it was impossible for them to make a mistake on my tariff, so it must be 710. So yeah, I guess that's what they're saying.

    There's a UKCAT cut-off now, that's what's happened.

    But 710 tariffs and 710 UKCAT is an extremely good combination. They said they took in account both 50:50... how can the cut-off combination be higher than yours??? (( I really do not understand at all.... Not so many people could get 710 UKCAT AND 710 tariffs.... this is sooo insane! I AM SO ANGRY ON YOUR BEHALF....

    I honestly don't know. I've emailed them too, but I just don't understand why they can't just tell me the qualifications they included in my tariff calculation. It's stupid. But like I said, the woman said there was a cut-off, so I'm speculating a cut-off of at least 710+ in the UKCAT, then they proceed normally for everyone else?

    Well what I understood is that theres a UKCAT cutoff but if your tariff is high enough to compensate for a low ukcat then youre ok .. ?? So its not just the 50:50 ratio they look at ?!

    I don't know. Anything beyond what I've told you would just be speculation.

    Anyway, I'm done with Barts. Good luck guys!
