    Hi BD

    Caponester is in the same position at the mo. Maybe, my age but what the hell does "the haps" mean?
    Haha! No it's probably now your age and just the fact I'm an idiot. It means what's happening? Any ideas? Were both applying as graduates - think that has anything to do with it?

    Hi BD

    Hmm...I doubt anything to do with being graduates tbh. I think that maybe they are waiting to see if they have good enough candidates with the newest cut-off of 652.5 and if not then it will be lowered again rather than give offers to those with higher ukcat's that they don't feel are good enough in other areas. I'd sit tight and cross everything that an interview will be forthcoming. Hope is still there until the fat lady sings!

    Thank you! I got 630 so I'm quite a bit lower than the cut off but I know people who have been rejected with higher UKCAT than me. It's all very strange...

    So that's like two waves of rejections now, yeah? One for grades, you could say, and one for UKCAT.

    Had a dream last night that I've got an interview at Glasgow on the 3rd of March. Was so disappointed to wake up and find it wasn't real.

    680 and predicted AAAAA for my highers. But I'm a strange candidate and they might think of me as a bit of a risk. (24, no previous degree except half an english literature degree at Glasgow, single mum, resitting highers at college etc etc)

    No rejection just yet though, that's got to count for something right?

    Aw wow congrats on the UKCAT, highers and raising a kid at the same time! I'm guessing there must be a reason why we haven't been rejected yet - not sure what that reason is though :/ maybe as sweet chilli says we are on a reserve list if they don't fill the places. I bet if you were to apply next year with your 5As you'd get a place though!

    I'm sorry - I clicked the thumbs down instead of quote by accident cause I'm on my iPhone I'll thumbs up a couple of your other posts to even if out though lol!

    Yup both. During many of my dissections in the anatomy course I've been told "sorry, the medics have been at the body first" Lots of prosected material too, in the anatomy building there is a whole room with floor to ceiling prosections which are brought out for viewing at the appropriate points in the course for anatomy and medicine.

    I think that its frowned upon to mention any specific questions on here and they would be deleted, but my advice would be to practice the generic ones as they come up more often than not, I read ISC medical for my prep. Look up PBL!! And lastly watch/read the news to find any ethical/research issues floating about at the moment.

    Good Luck

    ISC medical website has great specifics on all med courses.

    Got the actual rejection letter today as opposed to just on track. The cut off is 2610, they said that if you have the proper academics and have 2610 or above you should get interviewed. It's annoying cos they said in the letter that I had all the academics and stuff, it was only the UKCAT that let me down....******* ukcat! Anyways good luck!
