    YES ME! I know I shouldn't be stressing but I am! Have you had confirmation from your other choices? I've only heard from 2!

    I've heard back from all of my other choices, and have already been rejected by one of them .

    Don't worry BSMS don't send out acknowledgements by email; it's not a requirement for unis to do so.

    Awhh, good luck potential freshers!!
    I'm a BSMS 1st year, its a truly great great medical and any of you that make it here are very lucky!
    My only advise is NOT to worry too much about grades etc. If you get an interview at BSMS they want to see only a hand full of things: You are a nice, decent, person who can hold a conversation and that you have a true dedication to medicine. Be yourself, smile, be friendly... and good luck

    That's relieving hope I get an interview. Btw what was your offer if you don't mind me asking? And in your interview how many interviewers were there?

    3 interviewers, and I had one lady observing who was learning to interview.
    And AAA/A*AB/A*A*C with As in biology and chemistry... thats the basic that most people will get...

    I really wish to just get an interview, if I don't get an interview from any of my choices I'll have to seriously rethink ways to improve my application next time.

    It's the suspense that kills, and can negatively affect whatever exams you're doing if you let it get on top of you. I'm just going to do my best.

    Got a letter in the post today telling me I've been rejected. I'm really disappointed to be honest as it would have been my 1st choice. I really didn't see why I wasn't even offered an interview as my application wasn't weak ... urgh. Apparently I've been placed on the 'reserves' list. Anyone know the chances of being made an offer from this?

    Wait I dont get it...you're rejected....but you're also on the reserve list? What's the point of rejecting you then?

    Also, can you post your stats if you dont mind. thanks!

    Well considering the number of applicants I'm guessing I will have little luck turning it into an offer ....
    GCSE's: 10 A*s
    AS: AAAB (Maths, Chem, French, Bio)
    Predicted: A*A*A (Chem, French, Bio)
    Did loaaaaads of work experience and wrote what I learnt from it blah blah. Ah well. Good luck to the rest of you.

    Not really. Mentioned that although they like my application because of the number of people that have applied/competitiveness etc they couldn't give me a place or invite me to interview. I guess the reserve thing is better than nothing, and I had what I hope was a good interview the other day, so it really isn't the end of the world.

    Take heart yh. But I think the A level in French made them reject you, what do you think? Good luck with the rest of your choices.

    Hmmm possibly. However they clearly stated two sciences were enough, and the fact that it's not usually considered a 'weak' subject made me not consider dropping it. Plus the fact I would never have got an A overall if I had carried on doing maths. Thanks!

    Really sorry to hear about your rejection. So dd you have an interview at BSMS or was that an interview at another uni? Sorry if it sounds like a stupid question. Good luck with your other choices.

    Hope it wasn't A-level French, another BSMS applicant who studies french right here!
