    Hi everyone,

    After some unsavoury behaviour on the old thread I’ve created this new thread so I can continue answering your queries about Birmingham as a city, uni, med school, offers and interviews etc. I’m a first year med student (as is a_aron) and my stats when I applied were:

    GCSEs: 7A*’s, 3A’s
    AS: AA (maths and music)
    Predicted A level grades: A*A*A*A
    Birmingham offer: AAAB (4 subject offer)
    UKCAT: 713 average band 1
    Achieved A level grades: A*ABB (and was still accepted with a B in chem....)

    Hope you will all keep asking questions and hopefully will see you at the med school next year

    Hey, I applied to Birmingham and haven't heard from anything since- getting a bit worried. My stats are:

    9A*s, 2As, 1B at GCSE
    A in AS Maths
    Predicted A*A*A (Che, Bio, Maths)
    UKCAT 710 average, band 1
    Score on offer calculator was 7.8 ish, cant remember exactly!

    I think my stats are decent but perhaps this year overall people have much higher starts. Do you know when they stop interviewing by?

    Has anyone had the terms of their offer confirmed? Got told I’d have an offer made to me 3 weeks ago but haven’t heard anything back, no letters or updates to Track. Should I phone them??

    That was exactly how I got my offer as well. Don't worry about it being confirmed by Track, that often takes a while. They probably are going to wait until they can make offers to everyone else before they update Track. Congrats on your offer! Just hang tight

    I haven't heard from them for more than a month. They said on their website that many will be sent in March (before the end of March) so I think you should wait till then before contacting them. Up to you though!
