    is it true that the kcl system has broken down again?? rumours have been going on.
    did you see KCL on the news? - they are giving counselling to KCL staff after the data loss on their systems. hope none of our data is lost. I swear all this happens w our year. new specs, new tariff point system, new ukcat, omg this is insane lol
    No I don't think King's network is down as I am a current student at King's. I haven't noticed or heard any faults with our IT system. I can access the portal with no problem so I assume they are still processing our applications. If they lost any of our data I believe they'd contact us

    well I don't think the 6 week rule applies to courses with interviews like medicine dentistry physio and nursing? I sent my application out on the 6th of September and still haven't heard anything back

    Hahaha, don't worry about it. I'm kinda surprised that the date is so late though, they said it would be the end of January/beginning of February on their website.

    Hey, I'm currently doing As level and want to study medicine in the UK. I have 10A* 1A at GCSE and 1000+ hours of volunteer work at medical institutions and 3 clinical research publications in International Medical Journals. My first preference is Oxford. (do I have a chance?) second is kings.
    Can someone tell me when I have to give the UKCAT and BMAT?
    Also
    Do we apply to university in the same year we finish our AS level? Like before we start A2?
    What volunteer work did you do exactly and how did you get it especially in a clinical research institute?

    Hello King's applicants!
    I have recently been offered an interview at King's- much to my surprise!
    If anyone is interested in my application stats;
    GCSES: 4A*, 8A, 2B, and A in FSMQ additional maths
    A level predictions: A*A*A*A (chem, bio, maths, psych)- also achieved a C in further maths AS.
    UKCAT: 753
    In the end i think its down to the personal statement.. Ill likely mess up this interview, but best of luck to all 2017 entry applicants!

    Take your UKCAT in the summer and BMAT will be in November.

    Honestly 1000+ hours or 20+ hours makes very little difference as it's all about reflection in your PS than quantity so focus on this when you are writing it.

    With Oxford you have the GCSEs so it's now down to the BMAT. People say it has some elements of the UKCAT but I don't see it.

    Your UKCAT makes up for your GCSEs so it's not surprising that you got *an* interview. I agree that you must've gotten it this early because they loved your PS. Well Done! Is it in December?

    Yes, 13th December.. I am the least confident person so i strongly doubt the interview will go anywhere. Where are you applying?

    She's from Malaysia, but we both are doing our A-levels in the UK (still considered as international students). What are your stats if you don't mind me asking?
