    I have no idea about the Ukcat but, the high grades shouldn't put you at a dissadvantage. Being a medical student is a lot of hard work, so they also look to see that you're a wellrounded person who has some experience of what to expect and has other interests outside medicine. Those who have interviews have obviously caught the attention of the medical school, but with more interviews still to come there's nothing to say your application hasn't. No news is not necessarily bad news at this stage.

    The only other advice I can really give is medicine is a difficult, competitive course to get on to. Not everyone gets on first time, infact many of the current BM6 and even the others being interviewed have all taken gap years, giving them opportuinites to save some money ready for university and obtain more work/life experience to bolster their applications. If it's something you really want to do then you have to keep at it, the wait will be worth it

    I will also add I didn't find out I had an interview until near the end of February last year.

    I think i saw you today, im not sure,

    but just a quick thank you for all the help.

    If your curious , i was the small indian girl , and i think you were the guy asking about sharwoods curry? haha

    I had the man and woman interviewing me. The man literally said nothing and looked at his sheet of paper the whole way through?! The woman was really friendly and chatty though.

    I had exactly the same treatment, but with two women... the one who didn't say much was really scary!

    Sort of... the guy would sometimes look up, stare intently and look back down.

    Yeh, the lady was really nice and chatty. I didn't undertand a question at one point and she had to prompt me to the answer She was nice about it, but I did feel like an idiot. And the man asked me two questions near the end, but did spend a fair amount of time staring at his paper.

    I think I saw you there... were you wearing a suit, and a purple tie and shirt combo?

    You should have asked the guy to stop staring at the paper all the time especially if it was for long periods. you would have gotten an offer

    Same. Although I'll be dreading starting the whole application process again & there is the waiting, but I guess you gain alot more maturity & you know how to improve. Are you allowed to apply with a similar personal statement btw?
