    You'll be surprised. I mean, UCL give out interviews and stop until they have filled up all of their places so really, there's a chance that some candidates don't even get considered because of that.
    That is true but they have already started interviewing people below 19, and they are interviewing more then 750 - slightly over 800 I believe

    I was told it was slightly over 800 but I cant be sure, they may be waiting to see how the early people turn out or something else. I dont know everything unfortunately!

    I dont know; maybe you dont meet the other criteria or they have just been slow of the mark for the interview letters. I really dont know - check your other information maybe?

    I think they just interview the 19 people earlier but they take everything into account so it may or may not be true.

    Lots of people wh interview with me thought it went badly

    No, in fact the BMAT scores are irrelevant now. I think they were only used to shortlist candidates who met the 5.0, 5.0, 9.0 threshold while now everything else is being considered from scratch to fill up the rest of places.

    I feel sorry for ppl who barely missed that. Longer waiting.

    Hmm, I hope the rest of my application saves my day (gap year).

    I'm guessing that's pretty much the situation now.

    Looking at your academic record !MEna, you've got a pretty good chance of getting an interview!

    To be honest, I feel it all comes down to everyone's personal statement, reference and BMAT essay if they even have it?
