    It varies from year to year and from university to university. They have minimums such as 50 in each section (which, for example would be 50 overall) and then they later set a cut off for the overall mark which varies as ive said. Even if you achieve the minimum, if you are below the cut off (say they set that at 59) you don't get an interview.

    We are currently waiting to hear what the cut offs are. You get your exam results after yourbUCAS application has been submitted so you sort of apply in blind faith.

    It's not "marks" per se as the GAMSAT is marked in a very complicated way whereby each question is worth a different amount of marks to the next. I.e a score of 50 doesn't mean you got 50 questions right. When you start practicing and doing a little bit more research about the GAMSAT, you'll see what I mean.

    Hi, I might apply for 2018 entry and was wondering whether Warwick provides a separate work experience form or do we have to mention everything in our personal statement.

    Hi, I did an MSci before graduate Medicine. I got a letter from the medical school saying that it is likely that I will be called for interview on 30th November 2015 and I got my official inivitation from the college on the 6th December 2015. My BMAT was not great, because I failed to prepare for it. I got 6 for part 1, 6 for part 2 and 3 for part 3. I don't think the BMAT is too important, you just need to pass a certain minimum.

    I got an interview at the 5 year one, but I'm a grad and an international. My UKCAT was 833 but if you check the King's thread, people ranging from about 650/700 upwards have gotten an interview so far. I

    I've also applied to the 4 year course, but no one has heard back from them yet regarding an interview yet (couple rejections though).

    Oh cool, how did the interview go? Do you think your MSci helped with your application?

    Yep also recieved the WE questionnaire email for Warwick.

    Hopefully means we're in the first batch to be selected and therefore the highest bracket?

    Think I'm being a bit too optimistic though 😂
