I think it's really specific depending on the course, for medicine look online at their documents etc and they will have the month not sure about date tho

You reckon they’ll get back to us by next week? Seeing as they said they’ll let us know in 2 weeks??

I have no idea! Judging from last years thread it was the end of November when they found out, but hopefully it doesn’t take that long

Birmingham interviews are structured like this:First round - done in December (so you’ll hear from them in November)They then have a second round of interviews in Janurary - and you usuallyHear about those in December. Hope this helps!

they don't send our UKCAT to the unis until the first week of December, so they still have to consider that with our application, so I'm guessing anytime from late Nov

Birmingham don’t look at UKCAT - so that’s why they respond earlier than other universities

No chance, they usually take way over the 15 days they mention in the email.

The UKCAT is not considered for graduate entry medicine at Birmingham additionally, the low 2.1 might make it a little bit difficult. above 65% seems more realistic but, it depends if they consider the post graduate qualification. If there is someone who goes there in your position it may might be motivating but you probably have to ask around.

I received an email saying " interview dates are spread
over the coming months starting in December and ending in February 2018 " and also "Applicants who will be
invited to interview in December will hear from us within the next three to four weeks (if they haven't already)". Some people may have interviews already but i'm sure some one would have said if they did by now so i reckon by the end of November a few people will be invited.

I personally went to see the admissions guy as I do my PhD at their med school atm about this and he said a phd or masters will not factor into the admissions process at all and cannot be in place of something else they require I know it sucks as I had 63% too so chose not to apply
