    Let us wallow in our own self pity.

    What are your other choices? I've applied to Leciester (had an interview), Notts (1#) and Sheffield.
    Lol i agree
    Kcl 5 yea ... barts n barts ( 4+ 5 yea but not looking likely ... Soton - they have interviewed 1/3 of candidates all ova 800 so unlikely....
    There i was in july thinking my uckat was good and i am being conservative with my choices... ... Ohh how did Leicester interview go ? For 4 yea or 5 ?

      I applied for the 5 year course
      Let's just say that it wasn't incredible but it wasn't a total disaster either. I think I tend to over-focus on the negatives and forget the positives? But yeah, it was okay, but the verbal reasoning was hellish.

      I get what you mean by feeling really good about the UKCAT! I was so proud to get that result but I suppose they've got to set a boundary somewhere and there are so many brilliant applicants.

      How are you feeling in general about your application for all 4 Unis this year? I'm counting on Notts and Shef to pull through for me because their interviews are much more traditional, whereas Leicester was MMI.

        Congrats to all you guys,, but can i be honest some of the stats aren't even as high as those who have been rejected ?

        Well kcl i spoke like a cave man literally they were a litlle frustrated ;-(
        No hope for 4 year programs ;
        Only QM LEFT. Which is jus ridiculous 2 be honest .. I agree with them having to set a cut off but i would choose the leicester and Warwick approaches for selecting candidates ... I don like tem having a cut off because then it creates borderline candidates ( which will aleays be the case)... U can reject them coz thr fell 1 point below the borderline... What warwick and leicester do means that 1 bordelrline candidates are viewed equally an second coz of their overall scoring... So if ur overall total was 1 less than the cut off means generally its a lot more than 1 because there are many factors being accounted for .... Though small cases of true borderline will always exist

        I am sure u have done well for MMI
        ... Did u apply 4 yea at nots ? Bristol ... I am sure u will get an interview...

          I guess you've got a point there. But Leicester uses a points system for offering interviews - a mark out of 60. I got 56 last year and was one of the last to be invited, but I got 59 this year and was one of the first. It's tough

          I've applied for the 5 year courses (undergrad). I didn't get in last year mainly because of my UKCAT. But I'm much more hopeful for this year barring QM of course...

          Let's keep positive, yeah? Not getting into med school isn't the end of the universe - I know from experience let's just get through this hell ride...

          Hardly any invites have been given out mate, it's still early days. I don't understand why you're worried…with your 720 tariff points and UKCAT it's a no brainer. I assume you're a Home UK student for A100.
          Thanks for the reassurance just cuz they sent an email like a week b4 saying they r starting to give out invitations but I still hvnt heard anything. Besides I don't really know wt they are looking for the pages b4 r saying ppl with reasonable UKCAT scores r rejected so depressing..

          Yep you r right UK home student, A100, just that I'm from a Chinese family so I'm taking a level Chinese lul

          Anyone knows if Bart will work during the next week? I suppose there are still a few days (27-29) to receive an invitation. And did they already fill up all the international slots?
          I'm international and haven't heard from them yet. My stats are as followed:

          UKCAT 745
          UCAS: A*AB
          Expecting 2.1 Biomed at UCL

          They said for graduate applicants, A levels will not be used so I'm still hoping ...
