    first time applicant
    GCSE: 4A* 5A
    AS: AAAB
    A2 predictions: AAA*
    no interview, i knew it was risky applying here because of the number of applicants to place, oh well:P
    what about you?
    Omg rejected before interview? That's harsh! Your stats are good, as well. are you going to request feedback?

    Me too, got two rejections so far, just waiting to be rejected from the other two!

    Like you I couldn't afford the fees either, so doesn't really matter, but makes me feel less confident about my graduate entry application.
    Oh yeah definitely. My other 2 are grad entry and they are difficult enough to get an interview for anyway so I doubt this is actually going to happen for me.

    It's not a great way to end the year but I guess you've gotta stay a little positive-just frustrating that there's nothing you can do about it, and even more annoying that I thought my PS was stronger this year. :rolleyes:

    Pre-interview, they didn't tell exactly what let me down but they did tell me my overall scores from the two assessors. The cut off score is 25.5 for interview. Other than that the rest of the email was pretty standard.
    did u actually email them for the feedback or they sent it themselves?

    Do you need 25.5 from both, or just one assessor?

    You need a mean average of 25.5 from both of the assessors.
