    Hey guys, applied to Southampton, Aberdeen, UCLan, Exeter Medicine...and also Exeter Medical Science as a fifth option since my main goal is Medicine.

    Applied on Oct. 15, heard back from UCLan asking for things so that was a good sign, but heard literally nothing back from others (except for the acknowledgement of receipt of application which seems like an automated thing so doesn't seem to mean anything). Any ideas? Starting to get worried. Also, I'm taking A-levels at an open college to better my chances and my predicted grades will be out in like a couple weeks max, so I didn't add them to the application since I didn't have them. But only one (UCLan) asked me for them, no one else asked at all and I don't know how to send them without a request Should I be worried that they just cut me due to some part of my application? I checked UCAS and that had no notifications either. I thought maybe medicine takes time to receive replies from but nothing from Exeter Med Science when people are already getting offers?!

    I'm also applying for medicine at Exeter. Don't sweat it, I don't even think they've started sending out interview invitations and most med schools won't until early December aha

    It's honestly nothing to be concerned about. I know the waiting sucks and it's easy to drive yourself crazy thinking about it, but at this stage it's perfectly normal to have heard little or nothing at all. We're not even a month into the admissions cycle yet

    You sent out your application just 3 weeks ago; it's way too early to be expecting anything.

    Alright fair enough. Thanks guys! Guess I was just a little worried considering all those posts of people getting offers already. (To programmes other than Medicine but still)

    when i got Southampton medicine they took ages to reply. Chase them up if you don't receive a reply at least by mid January. As far as i can recall they have until march/april to let you know whether you will be offered an interview. I got my Bristol Interview in mid April :L
