    haha ... Well the UKCAT is only part of the criteria they use to assess applicants ! And yes, I would think so ... 70 % chance of an offer after interview ( 500 interviewed - 350 offers given out ! ) I even went on UCAS to add the option of sending me a text as it is getting so close to March !
    I can imagine you getting a text in class and just going crazy infront of everyone cos you got an offer! The 70% thing is keeping the hope alive, would probably do a lap of my street naked if I got an offer!

    I thought they only give out 300 offers... that's what st. andrews current students told me. Did you guys find out that information by email the university? Sorry for being suspicious but it's too good to be true!

    Are the people in the know 100% sure that it is 500 interviewed and 350 offers? Or is this based on previous years?

    Thanks

    interview on wednesday, so nervous :|

    i have hardly prepared at all....i keep trying to but i give up!
    i've got some structured answers to a few of the obvious questions to give me an idea of what to say (obviously ill not make it sound too rehearsed), and i've read up on some medical terms and about the nhs but thats about it!

    this is so stressful and its only the interview to get in...

    oh i'm so sorry :| do you have any more choices left ? maybe you'll have better luck with those
    (Original post by KCosmo)
    Ooft sorry man! Did they send it as a reply to your enquiry about your application, or was it just by chance that it came straight after? Have your other choices got back to you yet?
    I've yet to hear back from Aberdeen, and I've had an interview from dundee (which wasn't great)... Looks like I'll be taking a gap year.

    I think they had maybe overlooked my application when handing out the rejections, so me emailing them reminded them they had to dish one out.

    well, at least you have one interview, at dundee ... and who knows, even if you think it wasn't that great, they might think otherwise and give you an offer i hope so, at least and you still have aberdeen, and they have around 100 more interviews to give, so there's still hope

    omg im so sorry guys, I thought this was the Aberdeen thread for some reason, i feel like such an idiot. I guess this admissions stress must be really getting to my

    really sorry!

    Anyway, I was rejected pre-interview but what I can say is from what I have heard ur chances of an offer post-interview at St Andrews are very good!

    Yeah i did... I think I described it for SRK. in a previous post. it was on th 9th of february. Quite average... I finished first, but then again i'm not a native english speaker ad this may be a reason. I know it was average but i just hope it's going to be good enough to earn me a place
    Oh yea haha, thats not a bad thing though!
    I finished last :/
    Well hopefully it will work out!

    wud u say the stats for aberdeen posted above r alryt?


    anyway, now i feel obliged 2 help out! According to this site, they do indeed interview 500! and this site says for 2009 entry they made 318 offers, and it cant have changed that much so id say 320-350 offers and 500 interviews!

    Mhmm, I'd be tempted to say 600 interviews and 250-300 offers sounds more likely. It's a pretty small intake at Aberdeen after all! Only approximately 169 in a year now.
