    Sorry to hear that ... Can I ask when you found out ? And possibly what your UKCAT score is ... I am trying to figure out a pattern - if any :confused: - in order to see what my chances will be like !
    UKCAT was 2570 got email saying Track update at about 3pm ish.

    I am pretty sure it was my interview...it was shockingly bad.

    really sorry to hear about your rejection hope u do get an offer from somewhere else this year though!!!! What time did you find out?
    Unfortunately not...money is tight so moving further afield was not an option. Rejected at Glasgow as did not make the 2610 UKCAT cut off *sigh*

    As I mentioned I applied as an Access Student with 92% overall and an HNC Biosciences which I got an A in.

    Plenty work experience too....plus interview was bad

    [QUOTE=laurenl93;30356144]Right i have a question, my interview is on friday and they've already started handing out rejections, im confused how they can do this if they havent already saw the rest of the people who have yet to have their interview? does that mean that when i get there ive got a bigger chance of getting an offer if there's been a lot of rejections or something? :/

    I've got an interview on friday too and was getting a bit confused aswell. What time are you?

    Yeah I'll be applying again next year just not sure what to do in between....a year and a half to kill. Obviously, try and get more experience etc but just seems like such a long wait. I wanted to go to St Andrews so bad...typical.

    And to who asked about my interview...it was bad. I interview really well...USUALLY ha. I worked in recruitment for a year so I know how to interview and be interviewed if that makes sense. But my nerves, usually steadfast may I add, failed me. I panicked and blanked on simple questions. I wasn't asked anything difficult at all yet I spent 4 weeks covering difficult/ethical/moral dilemmas lol to not be asked any of it! Argh

    Also interviewed in November. I don't know what to think - many others interviewed on the same day have received offers, in fact judging by the stalking page nearly all November interviewees received offers, but official word is still that most offers don't come until March.

    Time can only tell.

    So sorry to hear that From meeting you, I could so imagine you a good doctor if that's any consolation... hope you hear good news from your other choice.
    Thanks nice of you to say that. I don't know what to do. Already spend best part of 2 years in limbo after my degree. I want to reapply but feel so empty right now I just want to sleep for weeks! (I am not holding my breath for Aberdeen sadly )

    Sorry to hear about all those rejections, I hope everything goes well from now on

    Hey, so sorry to hear about your rejection. I got rejected yesterday too. I also thought my interview went well but...

    Apparently you have to ask for feedback via ordinary mail by the way.
    They were pretty fast with us huh! "Ordinary mail, do you mean the [email protected] email address?

    And yes KCosmo this is pure boabby. (Where you fae? )

    Ordinary mail = snail mail

    I asked about feedback when I left and Alice said request it through letter, you'd then get a generic reply which you have to right back again to request detailed feedback.

    I know lol. I think they hope you don't ask for it as I guess it is a LOT of work providing feedback for possibly 500+ applicants
