    Exactly its weird. People with 48 and 47 have been rejected as well. I wonder what the post personal statement score could be

    Yeah, most of the people I know who have got interviews have a pre-PS score of 50 or above. I had my interview back in December with a pre-PS score of 52.

    They've rejected a lot of people though

    So as standard they have invited the best candidates first as they don't need to look at PS as much and they now have rejected the people who are second best. I can understand them rejecting someone like me on 43 but I don't get why they rejected 47/48?

    Potentially the people who have been rejected with 47/48 didn't have a very good PS score? Because I know a few people who have 47/48 who have interviews, so I assume those who got 48 and were rejected had a low PS score :/

    Yes, but the cut-off last year was about 45 after PS grading (/16) so unless they got 0 I don't see how they would of failed

    No, the cut-off last year was 45 BEFORE PS grading. We had a whole debate about this a while back which ended with somebody phoning up Nottingham to confirm, I'm pretty sure. I assume the cut-off this year is higher because there are more applicants

    Not a clue, I guess it's intentionally misleading to encourage more people to apply?

    Yeah, ikr? I really hope that I'm wrong and that's not the case because it is a really horrible thing to do XD
