    To all those on hold including myself, I called up admissions and they told me last year there were about 15-20 people on hold. He then said that all of them ended getting offers. So don't give up hope!

    Hey I'm a graduate who's on hold too. There's still hope! It's just annoying that we'll need to wait even longer for a decision... Are you holding offers anywhere else?

    Ignore my previous post, I must of misunderstood the admissions over the phone. There were 200 people on hold last year and 30 got offers, so that's a 1 in 7 chance. However I'm really confused as I emailed BSMS and they said I "interviewed very, very well". Well give me an offer !!

    I've had another 2 interviews but haven't had a reply yet. I phoned admissions too to ask about this hold list and was told that 15-20 people are on the hold list...where did you get 200 from? I was also told that if places become available then the assessors re-evaluate the applications to decide who will be offered a place. Doesn't seem like people have a specific position on the list.

    wait no, that can't be right. BSMS ranks wait listed people based on their UKCAT.

    It says so on their website so there is no re-evaluation of your application...you're just ranked based on ukcat and that's how they decide offers.

    here is the exact quote:
    We only use the UKCAT once you have been interviewed, either if you are on borderline with other candidates to being offered a place here, or if you are already on our waiting list and a space has become available.

    Hi guys

    Im on the Hold list too.. 15-20 people on the hold list seems a small number of people but 200 people in the hold list is also strange. If 500 interviews were given out it seems half did really well and got offers the other half (200 or so) also did really well but placed on hold list and so only about 50 people were rejected. That doesn't seem right. Anyway, Best of Luck everyone.

    Maybe admissions mean that there are CURRENTLY 15-20 people on hold? They sent me an email saying that, last year, they held 200 people over the 'entire cycle'...
