    Birmingham emailed me today saying interview offers should start to go out in the next 3-4 weeks if not already for December interview round. Anybody else apply to Birmingham and get a lot of emails from them? I swear every time I get my hopes up just to find info about residence and the campus lol

    You have good enough stats so I would expect you to hear during December. I would concentrate on studies and interview prep, invitations will take care of themselves. Lots of luck to us 😊

    I know there's already a very similar thread, however I've also found it very difficult to find medicine applicant posts... so I've made a dedicated feed.

    UKCAT: 692.5 Band 2

    The View Results poll regarding interviews is not very accurate though, it says BMAT interviews have given out offers but the results haven't even been sent to them I don't think.
