Hey!

I haven't seen any thread for the University of East Anglia foundation medicine course for 2019 entry so thought I'd start one.

I have applied for this course and my stats are as follows:

GCSE: (equivalent to) 7A* 2A
A2 predicted: BBB
UKCAT: 2550 (637.5)
SJT Band: 2
Interview?

Feel free to post your stats everyone and any other relevant info/questions and best of luck to everyone who has applied!

I believe most applicants applying through this route (including me) won't be applying with very high ukcat scores, so your stats are competitive! and I don't think UEA even take the SJT bands into consideration? so you should be fine.

I've applied to Leicester and Nottingham too! Also Southampton.

Goodluck!

Hey guys!

I know it's a worrying time for you because Medical schools can (and will!) take ages to get back to you haha. But don't worry too much make sure you take this time to focus on your A Levels because at the end of the day this is the most important hurdle to getting into med school!!

I'm currently part of the 2018/2019 cohort for foundation year medicine so if you have any questions about the course or the admissions process to help ease your mind please let me know! Also if you do make a group chat let me know as well if you want, when I applied I was in a whatsapp gc with two people who were already on the course and I think it helped loads because I got a better idea of what to expect from the course and it helped me prepare loads.

Good luck with your exams!

Hey!

Thanks a lot for the reassuring words, it’s definitely a tough time waiting for decisions!

I had a few questions..
I was wondering when you received your interview, if you remember? Just to get an idea of when to expect it if I’m lucky enough to get one. And how much time did you have to prepare for it after the invitation?
Also could you please share your stats if you don’t mind? To get a rough idea whether or not to expect an interview. Share as little or as much as you are comfortable with

Thanks a lot for your help and I will definitely let you know if there’s anything else I want to ask.

So yeah I dug through my emails and I got my interview email on 29/01 and my interview was on 26/02 at like 3pm. I think UEA and Southampton took the longest to get back to me to be fair.

After my interview I received my offer on 21/03 so it took about a month which is quite good for Medicine I think (I had my interview at Exeter on the 11th of December and got my offer on the 16th of March to give you a bit of perspective!).

And Stats are as follows

GCSEs/BTECs: 1A* 4As 5Bs and a Distinction*

A Levels predicted: AAA (After some serious begging haha)

UKCAT: 657.5 Band 2

A Levels achieved: BBB

With those stats, I got 4 interviews at UEA, King’s College and Southampton for Foundation Year Medicine and an interview at Exeter for 5 Year Medicine

Wow, your stats are great, especially your Ukcat. Must have had a very strong application for 4 interviews, that’s amazing!

Ahh, I have applied to Southampton as well so I guess I am gonna have to wait for some time for decisions from these two unis. Atleast they give you a good amount of time between the invite and actual interview date to finish preparation

nope not heard anything yet. Have you?

it looks like UEA sends invites for interviews quite late, if I'm not wrong? see Tayonnaise got theirs late January.
it's going to be a long wait

Thank you so much! I was quite shocked at how quickly they have responded tbh. 17th December gives me a month to prep for it so hopefully I should be okay
Where else have you applied?

I've applied to Leicester, Nottingham and Southampton, and it looks like 2 of them are definitely late senders
I applied to Newcastle for MPharm as 5th choice - just received provisional acceptance, no offer yet
ooh also congrats on your offer from Newcastle!

Thank you
Hopefully

I applied through partners programme for pharmacy - so the provisional acceptance means my application has been given the partners status I guess, now they will review my application to give offer or not. :confused:

You've applied for Med through partners right? I think you will get the provisional acceptance email as well before an interview offer
Should've applied for Partner's Med instead

Anyway, keep us posted if you hear any other good news!
