    Yesterday (26th October)
    I received an email from UCAS titled "Your application to The University of Nottingham", this is a week after Nottingham sent a "Welcome" email towards my current application.
    Now this email says;

    "We are delighted that you have applied to study A101, Graduate Entry Medicine here at The University of Nottingham. We've received a large number of applications for this programme from highly qualified candidates. We are still actively considering your application but it will take us a bit longer to give you our decision as we want to give equal consideration to all the applications we receive before the UCAS deadline. We realise that you will want to be notified of our decision as soon as possible, and we will not hold your application unnecessarily. We aim to make a decision as soon as we can and you should expect to hear from us by 31 March at the very latest. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your interest in The University of Nottingham. In the meantime, why not keep up to date with the latest activities, events and news from across our campuses. Join our dedicated applicant social channels and get connected at –"



    Sorry, but what the hell does this mean?? LOL
    Who else applied to the GEMS course at Nottingham, Did you receive this email?
    I haven't been rejected or received any changes to my UCAS application. Wouldn't they be considering every applicant ..AFTER the GAMSAT results are out?
    Or is this email sent to every applicant? if so then its a bit strange for Nottingham to start sending ambiguous emails like this so early.

    I'll be so relieved to know if it's sent to every applicant, because this is the only University that has sent me another message after the Welcome email.

    I was nervous for a second, but its the most POINTLESS email I've ever read, obviously its a competitive course and it could take time, we don't need reminding. :afraid:
    But what concerns me is that they could've ncluded it in the welcome email. Unless this email is sent to the "Less" competitive applicants??? I've sent them an email for further explanation.

    I think you’re overreacting a bit. They don’t have our ukcat yet so they can’t score or rank is yet. They just wanted to let you know they are starting to look at applications now

    basically just a conformation email to say they have your UCAS application and are currently looking at it! Fingers crossed for you!

    I may be overreacting, I've re-read the email several times and it's clearer that it's not that serious, I'm a little tripped off with a Second "Welcome" email from Nottingham.
    Btw Graduate entry requires GAMSAT results not ukcat, Some applicants already have their results from January and it's not only the scores, but along with our previous degrees and PS that weighs heavy.

    Honestly don't worry! I freaked out when I got these emails when I was applying to Uni! You'll receive an email like this. Which will prompt you to login to UCAS to see their decision..
