    I'm the one that got that email. I applied for the Gateway programme though, so that's probably why you haven't got it.

    We all know what you're going through. But don't worry too much cutie!
    Thank you , do you know roughly how long before interview dates they actually let you know if you've got one?

    I was told I had an interview invitation in late December and was asked to select one of the dates in February -- so more than a month.

    But I have a feeling Bristol are going to do it slightly differently this year tho. The website tells that you will hear within 2 weeks of your interview about your outcome this year but last year most people had to wait until April to hear back.

    This isnt actually true. Most people were told Yes/No about 3 weeks after their interview last year, but a few people with borderline scores were instead kept on hold until April before a final decision was made.

    Oh really? I thought only the top and bottom 20% were given offer/rejection immediately. While the rest us had to wait until everyone else was interviewed and ranked.

    What do you mean?

    edit: pretty sure that's what I was told by them before my interview too.

    I got that email a week ago. Submitted my application at the end of September. It made me worried that I had not linked UKCAT to UCAS on the UKCAT website but I had. I actually rang them but they said email had been sent to folk by mistake - weird I thought.

    Last year today, some people heard back from Bristol: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...3637779&page=4

    If only UKCAT would send their results a little quicker... maybe some of us will start hearing back starting next week.
