Called admissions and they said they’re still expecting to give out more batches of interviews so don’t lose hope if you’ve not heard yet!
Do you have the number for admissions you called? I can't find contact information anywhere. Assuming by now if I haven't heard it's a solid no.

Kmur If you call the main switchboard and ask for the admissions office they can put you through 0121 414 3344 - please let us know what they say! And if you could ask for the cutoff score that would be good to know as well

Just received an faq email about the maths test. It was in my junk folder, so just letting everyone know just in case.

I'll try today, though I imagine they'll tell me they can't comment on specific cases. In theory my score should have been 18.9 but I wonder if they are more specific this year ie on UCAT score which mine was very average..

Hi guys,
In my speedwell system, I have an ‘exams not taken’ labelled with ‘Medicine Admissions Calculation Station Candidate Test 2021-2022’ .
Is this the test version that I could access now and as many times as I wish?

Yes it is, but i was only able to access it for 30 minutes and it only contains 2 questions so it's not very representative of what we'll be given in the real one

Yeh just did the maths section, it was basic tbh but apparently real thing will be different. I don’t expect it to be that different I think maybe it’ll be harder because this didn’t require too much thinking or a calculator. Good Luck everyone🤙

Is everyone has the same calculation test time?
Mine was 11am just now.
I did not submit until the times up, because I know the system will save my answers when time is up. Correct?

"What will happen if I have used up all my time and have not submitted my answers? Will all my work be lost?
- The system will automatically submit the questions you have answered if time runs out."

This was written in the PDF document sent to us in the email, so your answers would have been saved

Did anyone notice how the second section of the calculation test specified to answer in whole numbers at the bottom of the text but also said one decimal place above the answer box? I wasn't sure which text to follow so I'm worried I've gotten the answers wrong now.

yes, I don't know how much we're allowed / should say on here, but I certainly found that (and a couple of other things) confusing. good luck with it all - time to put it behind us and focus on prep for the interview now!

Yeah I saw that. It had a question in the text as well. It looks like they copied the information for a previous exam question and forgot to edit it to remove the question and answer instructions.

It threw me off as well, but I just went through the questions and saw it was on each on so ignored it and just answered the ABCD questions in red.
