Hey Sarah,

Im on the waiting list for Aberdeen. Getting on two lists surely means you’ll get one. You must be so close!

Good thread idea.

Waiting list for:
University of Aberdeen

They say on their website that they sometimes SJT scores to rank applicants that are close, I imagine that my B3 wont help me get in :/

Here's my stats
Highers: AAAAB
Adv Predicted: AAB
^I'm hoping Ill get AAA at AH for next year though.

UKCAT: 697.5 + SJT Band 3

So I am a graduate, what do I do now cause I've already got my results. I think I'll give them a ring.

I'm so confused with my whole application process. Eventhough I'm a graduate. I'm classified as RUK. and to be honest My UKCat is as low as it can get 625.
Looking at everyone else who has applied with similar degree and better ukcat(RUK). I shouldn't even get a interview.
This just made me wonder. Was I invited so the university can met their ethics minority quota ?!
Being a uk graduate and placed on waiting list is pretty much a rejection. Ain't no graduates gonna turn down a offer. Looking at last year statistics. 100+ offer for graduates and only 60 intakes. You probably have to be the top 3 waiting list to get a offer. 😂

On Aberdeen waiting list.

I met a 4th year student last week. She was a waiting list person. Think she heard late April/early May.

Thanks! Does anyone know if we would be told what number are we on the waiting list?
And does anyone know historically how many people have been able to get an offer through waiting list in the last few years?

Not unless there is a FOI on it. Hasn’t come up in any searches so far.

I've only heard of a few stories about people getting in after being on the waiting list, it's highly unlikely at this point but still possible. I imagine all applicants are positioned on the waiting depending on their overall score, and if any potential offers come through then those at the top will get them. Also if the scores are extremely close then SJT scores will be used to decide at that point.

How about requesting information under FOI for the past years waiting lists? Everyone here can send their own request so we may be able to get a good picture before the end of April as they have 20 business days to respond to such requests.

Thank you. Its important to know what is ones position on the waiting list in order to have a better insight.

On Edinburgh and Aberdeen’s waiting list. Quick question though- if I firm my non medical choice do you think this will lessen my chances of getting a place for medicine? *still need to make this choice before I’m officially on Edinburgh’s waiting list right enough x

I don’t know but on the Kings waitlist email it says that once we firm another offer we can no longer be considered! But I guess in Kings case in order to firm another offer you must withdraw from Kings as they have not officially replied to a waitlist applicant. Sorry I can’t be of more help

No, for Edinburgh they said as long as it’s not an offer for medicine you can be added to their list so I firmed my back up course & they’ve confirmed I am now on the wait list
