    Thank you so much for your help and advice! I wish you all the best, and yes hopefully I will see you in Sept if I get through this ..
    1 last question if you don't mind, you said that I should link the article to stuff in my work experience, the subject of the article they sent me has NOTHING to do with my work experience, I have done an essay (as part of a competition) about a similar topic in the past so could I link it to that instead of strictly linking it to my work experience?
    I have this problem too besides the obvious thing that that could happen!

    What are the girls wearing for the interview?

    Do you think a blazer is a must? Or a cardigan will suffice?

    I wore a pant suit to mine, if in doubt I'd always go with the smarter option, better to look sharper than everyone else than a bum

    *EDIT*... not that a cardigan would make you look like a bum...

    When do people think the next batch of interviews are being sent out? (For A100, still yet to hear anything, UCAS tariff (480, 3 A* at A2 1 A at AS), UKCAT 785). I dont understand how I havent been rejected as people with higher tariffs and UCKATs have been, any ideas?
    I THINK (can only speculate) this is the order of interview offers given out starting from earliest to latest: International, graduates, highest tariff A-Level students to lowest. Just sit tight and wait and stop making assumptions that you will get rejected.

    The internationals with interviews in early January reside in Asia so they had theirs in Malaysia. I secretly hope your theory isn't correct because I'm international and I'm still waiting to hear back! :P

    P.S Good luck to all those with interviews this week!! Rock them.

    just think as an international student yr r lucky to be competing for the 200 + places instead of the approx 26+ places. mathematical odds favour your all so have more belief that u can get in.

    if u dont believe u r good enough, others will not be convinced that you r good enough.

    without trying, success cannot be achieved, so u must have confidence n try.
