    I submitted my application for Medicine on 6th October and I just wanted to know a rough idea of when we will be receiving offers for interviews/ rejections?
    I applied to;
    St Georges
    Bristol
    Kings
    Cardiff
    QMUL (Chemistry)

    I'm a bit worried about everything

    Universities don't even have your UKCAT score yet. End of next month at the earliest but could easily be start of next year. Settle in for a long wait.

    Realistically speaking you probably won't get an offer before Christmas. December is the very earliest from what I remember, but most offers are send off around March time.

    Waited 5 months for my first one. You could be waiting a while. Best forget about it and focus on your A-levels in the meantime.

    Honestly, it can be hard when your friends who have been applying for other courses are getting offers but UKCAT isn't sent off until November and even then it will take a few months. Stop refreshing track!

    Can anyone tell me why it takes them until November to send the UKCAT results to the universities? I mean everyone's already taken the exam and received their results by the time the UCAS deadline for Medicine passes. Surely it can't be that hard to create a software that automatically contacts UCAS, finds out which universities each applicant has applied to, and sends them the results? I assume some sort of software like this is already used, but then why does it take them 2-3 weeks just to send the results?

    I had a friend who received an offer (as in a place offer) on Christmas, someone on my course didn't hear of an interview until April I think. It can really vary. Some people don't get offers until results day, or even until one day into the course if someone drops out. Medicine is hilariously fun in their timings.
