    You'd definitely know it if there were. Either they're sending them out late in the day again, or they didn't quite manage to stick to schedule (and we'll just have to wait until January!).

    Well, a couple of people who contacted them were told that it was just entirely random (presumably picked from those that had been put forward thus far by the admissions selectors)... so probably not!

    can someone pls reply to this:
    band 1 gets 2 extra points at interview
    band 2 gets 1 extra point
    band 3/4 no extra points

    I got an interview with a band 3, will I be at disadvantage? If I impress the interviewers a lot, it doesn't actually matter right, or do they not like you for it. I reckon I was pretty close to getting a band 2 and that ukcat test was a rush tbh

    You should be fine if you do well at the interview. Don't quote me, but i believe its scored out of 45 or something so one or two points won't make a massive difference. I don't think the interviewers will look down on you or anythig because of it either, I wouldn't worry and just focus on preparing for interview, you can't change your band now

    Score is out of 50. Last year you needed something like 42 to get an offer. People with band 1 will have to get 40/50 because two extra points, you'd have to do a bit better and get 42, that's all.

    Nope, don't think so.

    I have an 817 avg on the UKCAT and a high predict for IB (43), 10A*s and 3As at GCSE.

    I don't want to sound arrogant, but I'm confident in my chances of getting an interview, and considering the stats of other internationals (I'm international btw) who have been getting interviews, I believe I have a good chance of doing so.

    Don't know about the scoring but that really isn't important I guess

    Barts does panel interviews, so you'll (usually) have two clinicians/lecturers/etc. and a medical student. They'll start by talking about your article - make sure you know about your given article inside out and have your own opinion on it. Then they'll ask more general questions about you. It's more of a conversation than an interview - they just want to get to know how you are as a person tbh.

    I'm currently a 2nd year at Barts - let me know if any of you have any questions

    It's Christmas! Nothing is going to happen over the next few days. Go and enjoy the festive season and take your mind off it, we're all anxious but there's not much we can do but wait. Hope you get to take your mind off it!

    Not a lot to be done tbh - know each bit of your article properly, pros/cons/etc. and for the rest of the interview, just be yourself. They don't really want people who can rehearse answers to their questions, they're looking more for a natural conversation to see that you're actually a decent person


    Relax guys, the earliest you'll probably hear something is around the 3rd of Jan which is when we go back - enjoy your holidays for now
