    hi guys, i got rejected from barts but i wanted to know the reason they gave you?
    my friend didn't get a reason but mine was increase in competition? was it like this for anyone else?
    I haven't even had an email from them; I only saw the rejection on track, so I've no reason either.

    I get where you're coming from but from my experience as a graduate applicant and having met others at interview days etc. A vast majority of applicants to medicine at any university have a first prediction or achieved. Anyone I spoke to, from university tutors, other students and other forums the general consensus is that to be a competitive applicant you need that first. I get that the weighting is 50:50 with ukcat but you shouldn't underestimate the competition. Not all unis put that much focus on it though (e.g. Kcl).

    Completely disagree I received a 2.1 and received an interview (not at barts) a 1st is not an essential requirement

    I was rejected late last night, achieved 1st, 640 ukcat. Same reason as others 'increased competition' I thought the selection was supposed to be based 50:50 ukcat and degree? Didn't someone on here get an interview with less?

    Im just waiting for my rejection to come through. I called admissions and they said all decisions have been made just contacting candidates slowly. I think someone with ukcak lower than 640 did get an interview

    Why did they say there's only rejections left?
    they didn't say anything, the lady on the phone seemed super busy and exhausted all she said was that theyre still processing things

    So they are still giving out interview offers to some people? That doesn't mean that the rest of the people who still haven't heard are officially rejected right?
    No idea, all they said was that theyre still processing the applications

    The lady i spoke to did say its rejections that are now going out as interviews for the A100 have been given out mostly. Dont take my word tho as you will have realised with all the inaccurate previous info supplied by admissions

    For those who don't know if they have interview or not- I received my interview invitation a month ago with 690 UKCAT and 3A* prediction (with A in EPQ and A in AS maths). Not sure if that's of any indication for anyone- my UKCAT isn't super duper high so if your other grades are high enough you should be alright!

    I've just had to request for an alternative date as I just received my Southampton Interview invitation today for the same day and they definitely cannot offer another date
    I'm so nervous ://
    Anyone else had to do this?
