    Is your interview on 2nd December by any chance? Because thats when i have one... though... no one else appears to. January... that's just luxury!!
    Nope, it's on the 15th. I do have quite a bit of time, I suppose.
    And I haven't seen anybody on TSR with one on the same day as me either, it would be nice to kind of know someone before the interview.
    Manchester's my first choice so I really need to do my best at this interview.
    Best of luck with your interview!
    Let me know how it goes. ^_^

    It seems that this week they've pretty much filled the interview slots for December and January. Do Manchester send out all the interview invites before Christmas?...because it looks like they won't stop sending anytime soon!

    Ah I'm 2.00pm. I guess unless you are very local you will travel up the day before?

    Manch are awesome for putting my mind at ease by giving me an interview so far in advance.

    Congrats to everyone with interviews - I'm very envious!

    Has any of the foundation course applicants heard back yet? I'm getting impatient but I expect they'll deal with us after the standard course applicants...

    I'm applying to pre-med course aswell, what did you get in your ukcat? I saw on Medicine stalking page someone going for access to medicine has an interview but not too sure if thats the same as foundation/pre-med. I'm hoping we're after, because im so nowhere near ready for an interview!

    It's okay, any interviews given now will be in Feb at the earliest so you have plenty of time to prepare

    Hello there, I got 655 in my UKCAT. I think it should be high enough but could still fail to pass the personal statement part of the selection process. What did you get?

    Yeah I think access to medicine is just a course you do before the standard 5 year course (instead of sciencey A levels) so as far as the stalking page knows, none of the foundation people have heard back yet...

    Aah cool, well apparently last year the cut-off for the premed year was 607.5, so as long as we get through the early stages we should get an interview! Good luck!

    I'm applying to UEA, Dundee and Warwick (I am/will be a grad). What about you?

    Have my interview in 4 days! Luckily got the ACEmedicine interview course just before it as well, which will hopefully help. Trying to keep calm but it is easier said then done (plus just posted this on a 2011 thread...oh dear).

    I know they have a group evaluation session where they give a problem, but does anyone know if the problem is always ethically related or something else?
