    Does anyone know approximately how many interviews were given out?
    And have they started to reject people pre-interview?
    About 900 get interviewed and 550+ get offers

    Yes, they have started rejecting people! My friend got rejected last week because his academic background was not competitive enough in the cohort (I'm guessing either his UKCAT or GCSEs were probably not good enough?)

    Got an interview today with 667 UKCAT
    Congratulations! When is your interview? This is giving me hope as I have similar UKCAT. Do you mind sharing your other stats?

    Hey :-) on the website they said that it's approx. 1200-1400 people who get interviewed with for around 410 places (idk the actual number of offers they give out though) - did they tell you 900 interviews at an open day ??
    Also, did uour friend get rejected pre interview or post?

    The website is probably combining the applicant numbers for the A100 course with the A102 and EMPD courses. There are freedom of information pages released by King's which state the numbers!

    My friend was rejected pre-interview. I don't think post-interview rejections have come out yet? Could be wrong

    I assume you mean a100?

    They say they will keep interviewing until feb or march. They do it on a rolling basis so we still have a chance until then.

    I haven't heard anything back from King's so far.

    I'm an American applying for undergrad med. So far have interviews for Bham and Liverpool.

    According to this site, there were 1200-1400 interviews and 500 offers in 2015. That is only for the 5 year program.

    I would take that with a pinch of salt. They interview about 500-600 UK Applicants with 300 offers each year. Seems like they've made that statistic based on what was said on the website than any actual digging.

    EDIT - Got beaten to it 😂

    Yes there is somewhere! It's on that freedom of information site if you search in King's. I think UKCAT is only slightly higher and interview performance tend to be a bit lower than for UK Applicants (meaning you don't need as high to get an offer).
