    Applicants with contextual data are assessed separately so I will explain it as if you did not have any contextual flags. If you do, tell me and I'll explain it too.


    You are put into tiers. With predicted grades the highest tier you can get put into is tier 2 with A*A*A*. Then they go down the tiers until they filled their places for interview. This meant that last year the cutoff fell into tier 2, they then ranked the applicants in tier 2 by UKCAT score and invited x number of candidates with the highest scores. For illustration purposes let's assume they had 100 places left to fill from tier 2. This essentially lead to a UKCAT cut-off as candidates with a UKCAT score of less than the 100th person on the ranked list will have been rejected.

    Assuming this information is correct last years interview offers for non-contextual candidates would have looked like this:
    Tier 1: Everyone is invited for interview
    Tier 2: Everyone who has a UKCAT score above the cutoff (check the 2017 thread, I believe it's on there) is invited for interview, the rest rejected
    Tier 3: Everyone is rejected
    Tier 4: Everyone is rejected

    If you check last years thread there were quite a few people claiming inconsistencies with the admissions policy so just look at this as a rough guideline from what I understood from the admissions policy on their website and explanations in rejection emails people seemed to have received last year.
    Hi, could you please explain the contextual data offer? Thank you!!

    I’ve applied with:
    GCSE- 4A* 1A 4B
    Predictions- A* A A
    UKCAT- 637.5 Band 1

    Exeter is my favourite and most risky choice, do I have any chance to be interviewed?

    P.S. my A* GCSEs were in the sciences and maths, don’t know if that makes them any better.

    I've applied but seems massively risky. Didn't know that when I applied. It does seem that it's not a popular choice this year (on TSR anyway).

    I haven't received any email of acknowledgement from Exeter. Does this mean anything? Have I put in my email address wrong? Been rejected?

    No if they had made a decision (which they haven't), it would have appeared on UCAS track and you may have got an email from UCAS. Check your spam folder for the acknowledgement email. If it is not there, I'd maybe email them to check whether they have received your application.

    Hey guys!
    I've applied to Exeter with the following stats:

    GCSE 7A*s, 2As, B
    AS: AAAA (in sciences and maths)
    A2: A*A*AA (achieved), A* in bio and chem and As in maths and physics
    UKCAT: 667 average, band 2

    Do you think I have good chances of interview? I am quite worried that I will be tier 2 and that my UKCAT will be below the threshold :\

    How do you know?
    Hiya,

    Basically Exeter says that they’ll give about two weeks notice of interviews. Given that interviews for Exeter run 4th-17th December 2017, it makes sense that invitations will start going out soon.
