Dear Roche, Jade,

No, sorry I have asked the figures for candidates that have been *wait listed* who eventually received an offer for the last 3 admissions cycles.
Hope this clarifies things.

Dear Roche, Jade,

Sorry I have personally been wait listed for medicine and I got his email on king's apply :

We aim to make decisions on the majority of our applications by the end of March. Your application was strong but due to competition for places, unfortunately we have not been able to make a final decision on your application at this stage. For this reason we have chosen to waitlist your application, as it may be that other places are made available for us to offer between now and 2nd May 2019, though please be aware that there is no guarantee that an offer can be made.

Please could you provide me with the information I've asked before regarding the waiting list, and also update me on the number of offers given out so far for the current admissions cycle, you mentioned a few weeks ago it was 567, please could you update me on this.

Yours sincerely,

Steven Dempsey

Roche, Jade, King's College London

Dear Steven,

I have been informed we do not hold a waitlist. While not every student may have received a decision on their application to their programme yet, the admissions team are aiming to respond to these students as soon as possible. To discuss your individual application you should contact the admissions team.

Kind regards
