Hi,

just got rejected from biochem at Bristol with triple A star and an EPQ.
Anyone else rejected with good grades exceeding their typical offer?
Why is it so competitive this year, is there anyway I can appeal it or at least find out specifically why I was rejected?

Thank you

Just because you have good grades doesn't mean you are automatically entitled to an offer...

Did you apply with a Medicine personal statement or something like that?

Appeal because...? You can only appeal if you think there is a procedural error or a mistake. Do you think one happened here?

Have you asked for feedback about why you were rejected?

Not yet, I was also asking how I would even get feedback.
Do I email student admissions?

Yes, the Biochem department admissions department would be a start.

Who knows, it could be a mistake so you may not even need to "appeal".

Bro I'm be straight. Uni is literally a gamble and the admissions team is so subjective. Like some guy can get rejected from Bath University but get accepted to Imperial. It is so hit or miss.

It's very competitive this year because there are less spaces due to people deferring as well as in correspondence to inflation from last year.

Hiya! You should definitely appeal. Don't listen to the comments, try to appeal and see what they say!!! Good luck, you're super great!

I got predicted 4A* and had what I like to think was a good personal statement. The predictions were in maths, chemistry, physics and further maths, so pretty ideal for aeronautical engineering. Not overly bothered because I’ve got an offer from Imperial, but it really does make you wonder. As to appealing, I’m not really sure it’s worth wasting your time with them as you’ll more than likely get a repeat of the (in my case) rather patronising rejection reasoning. But if you really have got your head around going there, then it’s worth a shot. Best of luck with your future plans and I’m sure Bristol will regret rejecting you.
