    I feel the same!! UKCAT of 674 and a 1st in biomed so feel more confident with barts due to the weighting. What about you?
    1st in human physiology, distinction in biomedicine (MSc), 730 UKCAT. only thing that worries me is the band 3 I got in SJ.

    I see, that's better stats than mine. Still hopeful I can get an interview at barts though, as far as I remember they only look at SJ at interview not before. Fingers crossed for us!

    Hi guys I've got an invitation to interview from St.George's but I can't find the "respond to interview invitation" button on the portal? Am I just being dumb and not seeing it or is anyone else having this problem?

    Yes, fingers crossed! I'm really hoping that this is my last application cycle - for good reasons not rejection type ones!

    Oh wow I thought 3 was bad enough! You must be emotionally drained! Wish you so much luck, you deserve it for the determination alone! My UKCAT hasn't changed much at all over the years which sucks despite more revision over the years. I'm willing to give it another go at least, that'll be 2 years after actually graduating and then I will see where I am. It's what I've always wanted to be (since I was 11) but I don't know if I can out myself through 5,6 or even 10 cycles. Comes a time where you go it's not meant to be.

    Good luck again!

    I thought about calling it a day, but after getting a decent UCKAT this year I decided to give it a shot. This year I feel like I have ducks in a row, rather than squirrels at a rave. Hopefully the fates (and the interviewers) will be kind!

    Won't it just! We applied to the same places. I don't think I'm going to get anywhere with Newcastle (we can't all get a stellar UKCAT like yours!), but I'm hopeful for Barts.

    I know what you mean about finances. Have had to come up with ingenious ways of making sure I would have enough to live on. And after 6 cycles, anywhere would be fine with me!

    None, as far as I know! Unless you mean interviews?
