    Didn't get any Medicine offers this year, but today got all the grades I needed (2 A*s, 2 As). Phoned all the medical schools and as you can imagine was mostly told to apply next year, however, King's college have taken all my details and put me into some sort of holding pool. They have said they will get back to me soon!
    Was wondering if anyone else has found themselves in this situation?

    Can you provide some more details? Did they ask you to email them? I'm intrigued. Did they say they would reconsider your application?

    Well I applied to them in October, but was rejected. Then after getting my results today I called them and asked if any places had become available. They took down all my info (ucas id, Maths and English GCSE grades, A Level results) and then said that I'd be put on a list and that they would get back to me.
    Haven't had a call yet, but keeping everything crossed, haha

    Oh well done! At least that's some good news Did they say when they would be getting back to you? It sounds like a positive though. They wouldnt ask just to get your hopes up would they? Hang in there

    Is this quite a common thing they do? Or would they only put your name down if they were really serious? I understand what you mean about not getting hopes up, but surely theres some chance?

    Well that's why I was wondering whether the OP got rejected post interview because then it would make more sense than pooling someone who was rejected pre-interview. There's a chance that the OP might get in but I'm just a little skeptical about that actually happening.
