Wonder what the cut off will be...I didn't apply with 2900 and instead applied to A100.....I really hope I made the right decision. I think more people sat the UCAT this year though the mean is about the same.....

Good luck to everyone that applied.

It’s just luck on what of those scores are grads applying to a101. To be honest if you can afford the undergrad course it’s not a bad option, lots of grads do it and i think I’d really value going at the slower pace (Newcastle GEM is one of the fastest paced courses)

Interview 12th December!!! UCAT 2930. Any prep tip for MMI? Absolutely bricking it. Haven’t had an interview for about 4 years!! (I cant update the spreadsheet myself for someone reason but I can see someone added me, I also have a 2:1 degree but have been working in medical devices for a number of years so my degree may not have been considered in the same way as a recent graduate)

Rejection via UCAS this afternoon. No explanation given, just a notification on my dashboard, but I knew my UCAT, 2730, was much too low for them (I had no other options to put down, so thought I might as well try my luck).

Update: there's now a letter linked to the update, where it says "Failed to meet UCAT threshold".
I got 2740. I should expect my rejection soon.😁

Just got a Track notification saying my UCAT was too low: I kind of knew that anyway with 2790, but like blackagnes had a spare option and thought I'd try my luck seeing as I really liked the look of the course and the city when I visited a few months back. Holding out for some better news from Warwick next week; best of luck to everyone who's got interviews!

Ah my UCAT is 2890, so I’m probably below the threshold too.

Good luck with your other options!

Hi all,I got a UCAT of 3030 band 1 so quite confident of getting an interview but haven't heard anything yet. i rang up last month to ask when they would be - was told the december batch of interviews were between the 9th and the 20th - is this what others have heard? is it also correct that we get 2 weeks notice? also people who have got interviews , do they give you a specific date or is there a range of dates to choose? and do they reimburse travel expenses ? if i am not given much notice the train ticket will be pretty expensive ..

Hi hello, like you said - i wouldn't worry, you seem well over the threshold. I had an interview with 2930. As per Newcastle's emails and websites the interviews are sent in batches so I wouldn't fret. To answer your question, there were a list of dates and we could pick from that.

I didn't call up, but I have stalked last years threads to confirm, as thebiomedblonde mentioned, that the interviews are sent out in seemingly random batches. The space in between the first and last invites were weeks apart.

I doubt they reimburse travel expenses.

Had an email sitting in my spam mail since 15:30. Woops.
Kind of rubbish that all the later times are taken despite receiving a later invite.
