    Hey everyone waiting for Leicester interviews! As a post-interviewee and offer holder...I honestly wouldn't worry - easier said than done! You will of course be nervous. However the interviewers were lovely and stations were very fair and to be honest the Q's were pretty standard amongst other uni medical school interviews. Just concentrate on the stuff you would concentrate on for any medical school interview and you'll be fine. The couple of stations where it's something more specific can't be prepared for anyway - so I wouldnt worry - you also have plenty of time at each station. Just read through the usual interview stuff and dont worry too much - I think most people I met were surprised by how much better it was in realitty than in their head!
    As a post interview but as-yet-have-heard-nothing applicant, I agree with this (for what it's worth!).

    VMDMD, are you a GEM applicant (offer holder then? When did you hear back?

    Just wondering what to do about the immunisations and tests we're supposed to have? Are we supposed to be getting this sorted now or waiting for offers and the uni will sort it?

    I don't think you're expected to get them until you receive an offer. The longest course will be Hep B which takes six months, but you're unlikely to be spending much time in hospital for the first few months of the course anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. Also, if you get it before you are made an offer you might have to pay for it!

    Just received an offer for the GEP course. Email from the admissions office. However, it was rather unexpected cos I withdrew my application last week.

    Hope others hear soon.

    It went up on the leicester admissions update today that they will be starting to hand out offers/rejections as of now. This was the exact post :
    "Posted 12/03/2012

    We have now conducted a large number of interviews and we are now in a position to start making offers for A100 Home/EU students.

    A101 graduates and A100 international applicants are already receiving decisions and this will be ongoing.

    Please be patient if you have not heard from us and please do not contact the Medical School at this busy time."

    on their website it says that we won't hear until after everyone's been interviewed? i.e. we wont hear until april?

    I hope they reply sooner though! I'm dying to hear!


    edit: no wait, I think you're right! good luck everyone!
