    Do you think Bristol have already started looking at and scoring the PS, then? That's a bit scary! :eek:

    It's weird how we could start hearing back next month, but also as late as march...
    That is scary, but I hate how medicines takes so long, so many people at my school have offers already it's crazy. March! Don't think I can wait that long!

    They have started scoring them. I got an email from them:
    "Thank you for your application to study at the University of Bristol. We have begun assessing your application, and are now awaiting your UK Clinical Aptitude test (UKCAT) results before we can progress further with our assessment. You do not need to send us these yourself, as we should receive your UKCAT results directly from their team in the coming weeks."I applied for Gateway to Medicine though, so I'm not sure if applicants to A100 will receive this email too.

    I'm not sure why, but I kind of had the thought that the universities were just leaving our applications alone until they received our admission test scores :lol:

    I guess that's because I'm applying to universities that don't really use the UKCAT

    Bristol has some interview dates at the end of November (they have published all the dates on the website) so assuming they will send out some interviews as soon as they get UKCAT results which is scary Do you know anything about when Birmingham start sending interview invites? Can't seem to find it anywhere.
    According to the last year's thread (University of Birmingham Medicine 2016 Entry), interview invites were sent out from Nov 10th. First interviews were around Nov 29th. Hope this helps

    You need to apply tactically and focus on your strengths. I'm in a similar situation to you where I achieved 630 average Band 2. Because of this, I only applied to unis which don't focus much on the UKCAT - Keele, Cardiff, Birmingham and Leicester. I too have good GCSEs (8A*s 2As) so I used this to my advantage.

    I know Barts rank candidates on a combination of UKCAT and predictions (not sure about GCSEs) so you're 50/50 depending on other applicants and whether or not your GCSEs and Predictions can pull up your UKCAT

    Good luck with your application

    will King's College give me an interview with 645 and band 3 in ukcat???????? kinda worried
    I just applied because I loved the open day and it is like my dream uni. My other choices are realistic though like UEA, Barts and UCL(BMAT).
    I got 8A* 3A 2B - B in english language
    AAAB Maths, Bio, Chem I got A and then B in Economics
    I am carrying on all four A levels
    Predicted A*A*AB
    Predicted A in EPQ

    My personal statement is really good according to my teachers - work experiences, volunteering etc.

    Am I going to get rejection before interview just because of my poor ukcat

    Remember that it will take all Unis time to process these results, they wont be making instant decisions - and also that decision could be to put you on Hold until the New Year while they rank and assess results from early interviews etc.
