    I think you have to have applied to the uni, been interviewed then rejected, they won't give places out without interview
    Yeahhh that's what they said to my friend so she's going to take a gap year now... but its quite contradictory by the universities to be honest as if you get a post-interview rejection, you're not allowed to reapply there again next year! (This is for imperial and ucl especially)

    Ohh wow that's amazing! Because basically, my sixth form has not predicted me well, but looking at my ums, I can still get 2A* and 2A's (I am doing 4 subjects) in my A2's, so I was hoping that when I have my real results in hand I will be able to still get a place without taking a gap year...
    Yeah its worth a try, work hard for your A2s and then try calling up some unis. Like Futuremedic said above me, it is very rare, but not impossible so its worth a try

    I don't think so. E.g. I heard exactly 2 weeks after my interview date and got an offer (as did a bunch of people from the 6th, from what I understand).

    I haven't heard back yet after an interview on the 13th, there's no way of telling why we didn't hear at the same time as the others, hope I hear by Tuesday

    Same here. I had mine on the 13th and still haven't heard anything. If I don't hear on Tuesday then that will be worrying!

    They don't ask about the BMAT essay.

    With regards to the interview:

    Don't over-prepare. Knowledge about the GMC etc. may come in handy but I wouldn't put too much emphasis on it.

    Know your PS and be able to elaborate on what you've written in there.

    It's very important not to name-drop concepts that you have little knowledge about just to sound flashy. First of all, the interviewers may ask you further questions on the subject, in which case you could be screwed. Secondly, if you're completely comfortable with what you're talking about, you will be more confident.

    Finally, remember that most interviewees get an offer and so, as long as you don't have a panic attack during the interview, you have a very high chance of getting an offer.
