    to put it in context though, this is the first time nearly all of the applicants have applied for something, so they arent really fine tuned for applying for things yet. Also, a good deal of the applicants are at least for now untested incompetents for whom cooking breakfast is an impossible notion. Its small wonder that so many fail at the first hurdle in a proper formal application.

    With experience you'd all be capable of landing straight offers,and without batting your eyes.

    put another way, some of you guys will be soooo much better at 25 than at 17.

    This is true, the % of people getting 4 rejections is even higher for dentistry!
    Yet you still manage to get 4 offers. I think you're just showing off.

    Using the figures from the Applicants & Applicants accepted, 37.9% got an offer for '10 entry. Admittedly, that's combined with dentistry, but it is roughly the quote figure.
    I might be being exceptionally stupid here, but doesn't that table say that the were fewer applications for combined arts than there were acceptances?!?

    Could just be another blonde moment for the thread...

    I just did a stat check on the 2010 applicants from the UCAS site. 54% of applicants got zero offers.
