Do we know for sure that Ulster only take degrees and GAMSAT into consideration?

I only say that because some unis like KCL are holistic so they don't set cut-off's, they look at each applicant individually.

This is a good point, they very well might. I was also maybe thinking like Swansea or ScotGEM that maybe they prioritise nation domiciled students first?

I feel the same! Sorry to hear you're having the same issue. I emailed [email protected]. Can I ask what your individual section scores were? I'm wondering if that could be the issue?
It’s horrible isn’t it! I got 67/58/57 in March, overall 60, and 61/74/51 in September, overall 59. How about yourself? I’m glad I’m not on my own with this anyway, thank you for your reply

Yeah, you might as well. the only thing I can think of is that they've started following higher cut offs for each individual section rather than it just being a case of having a certain score overall and at least 50 in each section?
That’s true! My section scores were 54/59/57, so yeah I guess it could be a case of them considering individual section scores as they might have more applications than expected potentially?

Yeah that could be true as well. Or they could be like Swansea and have different cut-off's for those in NI and those outside.

Rejected too. Thinking it might be the 2:2 degree.

I got 61 overall with 50 above all GAMSAT sections, so not sure what’s going on.

Also have a MSc merit graded which I thought compensated based on their brochure :/

That’s a solid profile. Really weird. Not sure what’s going on with them. This was meant to be somewhat of a safe choice from what I had heard lol

That’s rough :/ I’m sorry about that, I might be completely wrong but could it be you must hold a degree to be considered?

They must be using additional criteria on top of what's said on the website and just not being transparent about it? I really don't see how it can be fair to reject people that meet/exceed the requirements they specify on their website or that exceed their GAMSAT cut off.

Congrats! I got an invite as well I googled MMI prep and there are so many resources it's difficult to know where to begin! Hopefully the webinar on Monday will point us in the right direction.

I know it’s not particularly fair to not be transparent about entry requirements but unfortunately a lot of the time they are minimum requirements that you have to meet to be considered, not set criteria that guarantee interview.

Take KCL for example, they are notorious for their incredibly confusing selection criteria. I don’t think anyone knows how they choose who they interview.

No, humanities! But they say that they accept any degree. I’m so confused!

It’s looking like people from Northern Ireland may have a lower cut off maybe
