    Congrats on the interview ! Im a gap year student as well and got 2660 so is it safe to assume il get a letter soon ? Also can we say the cut off is around 2600 ? since it must be lower than 2630 !

    Again well done and i hope everything works out well !
    yeah it probably is around 2600, which is an increase from last year. my ukcat was the reason i got rejected last year, so things are def lookin up this year!
    hope you get a letter soon as well, it's so exciting

    I also got 680 and haven't got an interview either so I would imagine that there isn't a particular order. They send their interviews by post so I hope mine doesn't get lost

    And actually I'm kinda happy that I haven't got an interview coming up soon because I'm nowhere near prepared...so the later the better

    Well the acknowledgement email from Glasgow did say that interviews weren't given out in any particular order.

    If they don't have an order what if after sending the 800th interview they realise that some of the people left towards the end had huge UKCATs? They must put all the candidates in the order of their UKCAT or else they can not have a cut off...

    Hmm.. Could it be when they said " Interviews are not allocated to applicants in order of preference, so many applicants will not hear from us until March.", they meant "more likely to get an offer" by "preference"? That'll explain it.

    But how would they rank international applicants? =[ With only 18 places available, how many interviews for international applicants do you think they give out?

    Btw, ur an international student too right?

    Im in the UE so I'm tehnically a Home student. As i see it internationals are a lot more lucky with 18 places all for themselves... for UE applicants is harder because they basically share those 220 places with scottish/english applicants and, as I see it, the university has all interest to offer places to their students first! I hope I'm not right but I personally believe there still is a bit of discrimination out there.

    International applicants must be ranked separately i guess... as they have separate places and separate competition

    Congratulations and good luck to all those with interviews!

    I don't think they're doing interviews in order of UKCAT score because I have 740 and I have another two friends with 700+ who don't have interviews, so it could be a random selection from the top 800 scores :confused:

    Just for the general interest of the thread: I have a UKCAT average of 720 and haven't heard anything.

    I don't think anyone needs to worry, it's still early days and the snow in the UK is probably holding some of the letters back.

    I would love to come Glasgow as well. So is everyone with a score above the cut off get an interview at some point from now to march, then? Blooody snow. I reckon they'll do it randomly because they arent doing it in order of score. So... 800 interviewees... how many offer are made, if anyone knows? x

    it's something like:

    800 interviews
    400 offers
    223 places

    so 1 in 2 chance if you get interviewed :cool:
