    If everyone does really well in the interviews in December, and they want to give offers to them - then there would be a limited number of places left and they will interview less people in jan feb and march. but if not, there would be more places.
    I hope everyone does well though, not being jealous. hopefully I will hear back soon

    Anyone still not heard from them? I got 767 on ukcat and nothing so far
    Me... I have achieved A2 equivalent grades that exceed their requirements by far as well as 753 band 1 on ukcat plus I'm European so even though I don't live in the UK they should invite me at the same time as home applicants

    As an international and a grad, my interviews are not until January anyway. Early January for grad and late January for international A100 but I feel all of you who are getting antsy. Hopefully they send out the next batch soon!

    I'm curious though, how much does the UKCAT compensate for grades or carry you through to the interview stage? I applied to Kings because I did extremely well on my UKCAT (833) and everyone told me that it was a good place to apply with that score. I have a 2:1 equivalent and 36 IB, decent PS/reference.

    I cannot say for certain as I am pretty sure they do not release data about how much the UKCAT can compensate for, but that score is so very high that I presume you would be very likely to receive an interview (if not definitely in my opinion!). As long as you meet the other requirements which it looks like you do, I think the Kings application system will work in your benefit.Congrats on such an amazing score!

    That's not necessarily true. Pretty sure they wait until February/March till they start handing out offers. They compare the interview score of the applicant to the average score for that cycle, and then they weigh it up with all the other stats the applicant has. At least, that's what I've heard. But either way, King's will still interview the same number of applicants this year as long as the total number of people who applied is a similar figure to last cycle's one.

    They take in the scores after the interviews and anyone who performs really well (high scores) get an offer about a few weeks/ a month after (people were getting offers/rejections in early January last year) and anyone who got very low will also get a rejection quite quickly. Most people tend to fall in between and won't hear until March when interview sessions start coming to a close. And actually the amount they interview sways from year to year as does the number of offers given out as it's done on a rolling basis.

    Predictions mean squat for Kings. It's predominantly GCSE/UKCAT scores for the academic side and then the PS/Reference. I have a friend who's gotten an interview with AAA predicted grades, a UKCAT of 680ish but GCSEs that are like 11A*s
