    So did they give you an inreview? I've done the exact same subjects and am predicted the same grades as you. I was hoping they didn't interview me!!
    No, I didn't get an interview, just a straight offer of BBB.


    I have heard that the interview ain't that bad tho.

    ohh man! what would i say about not doing maths after GCSE ? i don't think i want Kings anymore, sounds very maths orientated!!
    "Maths orientated" - couldn't agree with you more. Kings are taking their time replying I only sent off my UCAS today aaah!

    Best of luck

    Its really good kings are doing this to be quite honest, i mean at my university, there are people who haven't done A-level maths, which for people like me who have done it, is rather frustrating. As now Brighton have to spend a lot of valuable time getting them all to the same standard, in the end it just allows king students to a better chance at aceing the pharmaceutical calculations required in pharmacy, which you need to pass by 70%.

    I've been called on the 11th but I'm going to Bath on that day so I'll need to ask Kings to change it. They do formal interviews, apparently.

    p.s. Got email response in junk box :mad: . Everyone do keep an eye on what you get in junk email; be careful! :cool:

    lol king's just changed their offers to only ABB the BBB/b has gone :O
    3 A levels & 1 AS level
    ABB
    also the thing about the interview has gone but in the 2009 prospectus it does state(after checking it) that if you study Maths bio and chem then you don't need an interview however it's disappeared from the website.. -_- dunno what's up...

    however on UCAS website...
    GCE A/AS level grade range ABB-BBBb
    Yes
    Applicants are interviewed where they offer non-standard qualifications.
    A proportion of candidates is interviewed.
    Only applicants who do not study the preferred combination of A-Levels or may be from a non-traditional educational background may be called for interview.

    so if you do study maths bio and chem you have the best chance i would say then others who do say chem bio and history of not having an interview
    i do chem, bio and maths and have traditional qualifications...does that mean i wont be interviewed? (if they consider me ofcoarse)
