    Worried here as well. Does anyone have a feel for whether high stats people are interviewed first or is it just random?
    I don't think that's it necessarily; I've seen a lot of people with higher stats than those mentioned by invite holders who haven't had an invite to interview yet. Also, tsr posters tend to have higher ukcats and results than the national average.

    I wouldn't worry if you haven't had an invite yet; although it sucks, just sit tight and don't jump to conclusions!

    Random, don’t try looking for trends that are most likely coincidental. Until you hear from them, you still have a chance

    UCL and Imperial obviously only after the BMAT is out. Last year Imperial started to send invites around Dec 8. UCL is supposed to be a bit late in sending it generally.

    Kings interview only between Jan- Mar so probably they might start sending invites some time in Dec (just a guess no proof as I havent checked last years thread)

    No idea abt QMUL - check last years thread to see when invites were send out.

    Nah, King's have interviewed in December for the past 2 years, and start giving out invitations in the second/third week of November, but AFAIK, they haven't started yet, so no need to worry lol.

    I dont know abt last year. But I got the info from here :-

    https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergra...cine-mbbs.aspx

    Relevant excerpt :- 'Interviews are held between January and March and you must be available for interview in order to be considered for admission. Interviews for international applicants are held in late January or early February'
