    From previous years, they've always given out offers to the top 10% of interview scores very quickly. Most people in the middle end up waiting until mid march until the cut-off is made and then there is a mass rejection day. I'm assuming that the scores may be currently too sporadic for them to be completely confident in where the cut-off is so they're now waiting for all the interviews to be finished before giving out the rest of the decisions.
    Do you know how many interviews/offers there are?

    Ah ok thanks! Do you think there are many offers to be given out or will the vast majority be rejections?

    But we also have to think about the fact that Kings might actually be taking a completely holistic approach so even if they set a cut off for the interview score they still have to compare our personal statements and grades and predicted grades and UKCAt

    I'm sure in my interview they said offers are given solely based on interview score.

    It's a bit weird that we are all being told different things? I remember we were definitely told that it was holistic. I also had my interview in Jan.

    Maybe the system also has your academic and personal scores on board already.

    I had my interview in March and was told 2 separate things. The admissions tutor pre-interview told us that they'd only use the interview from now on, whereas afterwards at the de-brief another guy told us they'd look at our application too!
