    Glasgow don't use SJT though so it's not quite the same - having a good or bad SJT applying to SA could decide your fate with them.

    Good point but many people will have the same SJT score so it can't be a huge factor can't it? Since there are only four possible SJT scores !

    Well I can't really conclude without stats, but that's just my conclusion from ukcat pages/friends. Could be wrong :P

    "- Your interview score (including SJT) is what decides whether you get an offer - they will only use the UKCAT if you have the same interview score as someone else!" Hmm this part is slightly worrying, I applied thinking they somehow rank people with ukcat after interview. So this is basically the exact same as Glasgow selection process now :P
    "Decisions to make offers will be based on the interview score and the global UKCAT score."

    The website kind of leads you to believe that but it's vagueness allows it imo. My question is that have they changed this recently, I could have sworn it said 50:50 around october?

    Yeah I agree its quite vague but oh well, and yes I think they have changed it to 100% ukcat weighing

    Here is a cached version of their website from June 2015
    https://web.archive.org/web/20150614...k/prospectus/#
    They said " Following assessment of personal statement and reference, suitable applicants will be ranked for interview on the basis of their academic performance and their UKCAT global score. Those ranked in the top 400 or so will be given an interview."
    But now its:
    "Applicants meeting these requirements will be ranked on the basis of their UKCAT global score"
    Very subtle indeed.

    SJT just counts as one station. You're obviously off to a bad start from that point of view but it's not the end of the world - there are 6 other stations.

    I m going to attend the interview maybe mid feb at st andrews cuz they wont have skype interviews until early march, thats what they told me, and i cant do it in march. The sjt part is quite worrying and i'd really like to know if it has huge influence on the interview score or not, and whether they still consider academic when giving offers...
