    I feel your pain yo.

    literally the worst thing just knowing they will reject you. I have an A*AA prediction and aaab grades but I didn't think I could add a music grade as the board had been liquidated, so I didn't put it in case I wasn't allowed. Turns out it's been liquidated into another board and I could have. Kicking myself! I sent emails and called but they said they can't consider it, so I am gutted I wasted something like this! Barts was my first choice too

    Sitting here on a tariff of 460 wondering how on Earth I haven't been rejected yet. As a school leaver, I'm hoping that the General studies I'm going to sit this year has had its prediction added to my tariff score. If so, then I'd be on 600 tariff and 830 UKCAT, which would actually explain why I'm somehow clinging on.

      If your first theory is right, I am also sitting here with 460 UCAS points so you're not alone, clearly they saw something else in our application (i think)

      Sorry if I'm being stupid and I admit I haven't read the whole thread but is the tariff based on predicted A2 or already achieved A/S

      RE: Rejection before interview

      I appreciate that you are disappointed for not being shortlisted for interview. You will be aware that competition for places on the MB BS programme in Medicine is intense and the quality of the applicant pool extremely high.In order to select an appropriate number of candidates for interview, we rank applicants according to their UKCAT scores. Those who achieve the most competitive UKCAT scores are considered for interview. The cut-off UKCAT score is determined each year by the performance of candidates and the number of applicants we would like to invite to interview. This year we have considered for interview those applicants for A100 who have achieved UKCAT scores of 2890. For A101 we have interviewed those applicants who have achieved UKCAT scores of 3010.*

      Ooh does that mean anyone above 3010 is getting an interview for A101?

          They normally won't release scores til the cycle is over. Also a lot of grads were rejected in December. Just seems very odd they have given scores before cycle is over pinch of salt

            In order to select an appropriate number of candidates for interview on our main scheme. Those who achieve the most competitive UKCAT* and UCAS* tariff scores are considered for interview. The cut-off for the combined UKCAT* and UCAS tariff score is determined each year by the performance of candidates and the number of applicants we would like to invite to interview. This year we have considered for interview those applicants for A100 who have achieved UKCAT scores of*3520-2400*and Tariff scores of*1080-465. When combined using our algorithm, which gives each candidate a score based on their position in the rank in both domains which are equally weighted.

            For example some mid-range scores this year were 600 tariff and 2900 UKCAT and 736 tariff and 2520 UKCAT.* At either end of the scoring domains were scores of 770 tariff and 3520 UKCAT and 465 tariff and 3280 UKCAT
