    do they accept band 3.
    from reading previous forums, they have interviewed band 3 but on their website it says that it's unfavourable I believe. I think people who did get interviews with a band 3 were all above 740 ukcat though from the people I saw in the forums, doesn't mean they don't offer interviews for band3 with lower than 740, I just haven't seen that in forums.

    A*?? I thought the offers would be AAA
    Based on what I read, the average entering marks of the class were A*AA, but offers could definitely have been made based on getting AAA.

    If you're a home student, a high UKCAT score may help you there. But if you're international, it's highly unlikely that they'll look at your application further.

    I sent them a message through the portal. They said that the dates hadn't been decided yet but they'd let us know as soon as possible.

    Last year rejections and interview invites were sent out at the same time. I'm not sure what they're doing this year.

    Thank you,

    TSR curse that you compare yourself to interview receivers on this thread - really doubting my chances and just want to know when I'll know if it's a no!

    I feel you but you have to remember that you've worked very hard for your achievements and they're not to be taken lightly. And everybody has a different background so there's a lot of factors to consider.

    From my time in the rabbit hole that was those FOIs, as long as you meet the academic requirements, there's a chance

    Totally agreed. If not for the reason of having a chance to go to medical school, but for the reason of being able to drop organic chemistry II+lab if I have UK interviews that might pan out.

    I already graduated but medical schools in the US have specific courses that they require like organic chemistry, general chemistry, bio, physics, etc. So I'm taking an extra year to do some more courses and fulfill those requirements - but if I don't get any interviews from the schools that require the second organic chemistry course, I'm not in the mood to suffer through more organic chemistry.

    Yeah that's fair enough. Best of luck to you!

    thx
    Yes they do, I got an offer last year from Kings with Band 3 and 680 average UKCAT so don't worry! The people on these TSR forums are known to be...let's say the creme de la creme of applicants which is why I hate myself for reading up because it can get stressful to compare yourself to people here! But don't worry, Band 3 and above definitely have a chance

    Does anyone know how long KCL takes to make a decision? So if you had a Dec interview for example, how long could you expect to wait to hear back afterwards?
