    I also called today. Bit worried about not getting a letter. The lady there told me that they'd be sending interview offers until February and that they will probably start sending some more only after New Year.


    (I know most of you guys already have an interview but for those with high UKCAT scores still waiting... I hope I've been useful )
    so start bricking it when its late jan

    Calm it! You're guarnteed an interview. They take you alphabetical order of surname. Source: interview man.
    OMG THANK YOU!!!!

    I'm "S"...so this does calm the ol' nerves a fair bit......

    do you mind PM'ing me about the sort of stuff to expect at interview/what they like as I really wanna get in

    It's not alphabetical, it's selected randomly from the data base of the top 800 names. That's what I was told by the nice lady at admissions.

    I have an average of 650... Meaning I am 10 marks off the assumed cutoff.

    10 marks... That is like one bloody question in the UKCAT exam and they are probably going to sack me off for one bloody mark!!!

    Peeps with 655 have been called for interview. I've not heard of anything lower but maybe there are some with less. Stay hopeful.

    They've given you everything in the information packet about the course. Learn that and go on guardian.com and read some health stories. I won't tell you what exactly they asked me because:
    a) not very fair.
    b) they'll ask you something else anyway.
    c) admissions tutors prawl these pages, and I want an offer.

    Be confident and the interview will be fine.

    Good luck and hopefully meet you next year. I'll be 18 so we can explore the pubs together

    Well she did assure me that they will keep sending interview until February... I suppose it just happened that most of people on TSR were called early without any particular reason. We must be called soon... It would be just silly not being interviewed with a fairly high ukcat

    i think it's bad for anyone with a score higher than the cutoff. It's just as stressing for all of us...
