    So just to clarify, you don't know if they use it, or they definitely don't use it.

    1226 sorry typo..

    (Original post by VARRRDAQ)
    It also says applicants per offer was 4. And there were 60 offers...so roughly 240 applicants
    So... I misstyped 1226 as 226. Someone pmed me saying that my applicants per offer was wrong (using the 226 as the correct number) and so I updated it in a moment of stupidity from 20 to 4 applicants per offer instead of checking the other numbers!


    Just to clarify:

    20 applicants per offer.
    1226 applicants this year.

    Hi,

    Where did you get this information?
    I work at the open days and this was the data we were given by admissions.
    Also - there were some typos and confusion. It's now all correct.

    Not a clue. Depends entirely on who applies and how the UKCAT goes. No odds on anything unfortunately, not been doing it like this long enough and it varies so much.


    Yeah bm4 applicants smash the UKCAT
