    By competitiveness, I meant in terms of applicants per place, as quoted by this doc -

    http://www.medschools.ac.uk/SiteColl...al-schools.pdf

    As quoted by that doc ^, King's has fewer applicants per spot (4 for internationals) than the other med schools do (Barts has 22 international applicants per spot and Exeter has 18.9 international applicants per spot.)

    I apologise if I came across as arrogant or rude; I should've clarified why I felt other med schools were more competitive.
    And yes, I understand that it is nearly impossible to compare UK med schools as they vary greatly and each have their own strengths and weaknesses.
    In 2015/2016 there were 666 international applicants and 37 offers given out so it's actually 18, so that site definitely has a couple of mistakes on it to say the least. Also you can see that barts give out way more interviews than actual offers for internationals on that site if it is accurate. Good luck though

    I wanna stay positive but can't help but agree with you tbh :/
    Lol I think we shud just stay positive I made it sound more dead than it is because I'm a dead ting. Those who got offers right now must've just done really well in their interviews to get an automatic offer and most of us lie in between the two ends of the spectrum. There have been a few rejections post interview so far (?); they must've been at the very bottom of interview performance. Most of us will just have to wait it out and it will probably take even longer for overall responses this year than last year considering they started so late. I find it interesting though that they gave offers so quick. Maybe they just have an interview spreadsheet will all the scores on it? It might only be holistic when choosing between candidates with very similar interview scores. Just my thoughts anyway allow it

    Yep same here. I also had my interview on 24th Jan too. There's a separate grad thread if you're interested (don't think I've seen you post in it before, but I may be mistaken? :P) https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4424452
