    Just called admissions and they were unbelievably vague its so annoying. They just said 'be patient' and didn't tell me my position annoyingly.
    Ah, that's so frustrating! Good luck!

    That's annoying and it's kind of hard to be patient months after an interview. I have offfers elsewhere and it's pretty frustrating not being able to firm a choice and apply for accommodation etc due to being on the waiting list at kings.
    exactly, i know how you feel. i have 2 offers thankfully but i am waiting for kings to give me a offer/rejection to make my final decision. incredibly frustrating. good luck

    It certainly is, but I suppose we should be thankful and happy that we didn't get outright rejections and we're still in contention. Anyhow likewise good luck to you!

    I asked them if they could tell me how far up the waiting list I am but they said they couldn't because this would give away their ranking procedure.

    Have any of you still not had any sort of update on portal or track? Should I just assume I'm on the waiting list

    That's odd... I'm on the waiting list but the state of my application still says "submitted", they just sent me a message via portal. Any chance you've missed that?

    I don't think so, nothing's changed since I was invited for interview, no updates or messages.

    On the waiting list as well:/ Out of interest - if let's say on results day, us on the waiting list after having been rejected, meet the grades, do we get the place? Cos essentially we're on the waiting list until someone who has an offer rejects it and on the 5th May, we'll be rejected cos offer holders haven't declined their offers - but say if on results day a lot of people kept it as their insurance and they met their firms instead, that would open a few seats that we could potentially take right?

    There is also a 25% increase in medical school places from next year so it levels out.

    I have decided to put Barts as my insurance instead of King's. So I'm going to decline the offer and hopefully, someone from here that is on the waiting list can receive an offer. Good luck to everyone

    I think I was one of the first people to get rejected and it is heartbreaking since I wanted an offer so badly. Do any of you guys think it is worth calling them up on results day if I get good grades? Because I know people who have done that but don't think they did for kings. Also because I know most people put Kings as their insurance so hopefully theres a chance right?

    @bee264 I would definitely recommend calling up schools and being in constant contact emailing them showing them that you truly want to attend their university. People decline offers all the time and you never know. You have nothing to lose!! I know people who missed both their offers and then emailed 4 other schools and kept pushing and trying and were eventually offered a place! It is definitely possible
