    Thats a distraction technique for interviews
    Cambridge do it all the time
    Tests that you can remain focussed under pressure
    Oh fair enough then, just seemed a bit rude to me! I didn't think it distracted me too much just don't think it went to well overall.

    Yeah one interviewer fell asleep after asking his question, and before that he was on his tablet... I think he was on facebook

    Hey I have my interview coming up on Wednesday and I am fretting over all these offers handed out, I am worried that the interviewers won't take me seriously as they will have handed out their offers. Is this true or am I just worrying too much?
    You better pray that the interviewers are City fans.

    No, they sent an email to apologise for the delay. It appears that there was an issue with the application which can't be sorted in time for the UCAS deadline and so the offer was made due to "the quality of the interview" to avoid having to go through everything again.

    As he was already considering a year off, he will accept this, as Imperial was really the only place that he wanted (only did 2 interviews as he wasn't sure about things- if it happened, then great).

    As I said before, I am still not happy about the IC procedure when you see all of the stress that people are under when they haven't had feedback after a week!
    You should be glad at least he has received an offer! There are many people that haven't got one either pre or post interview that would be so happy to be in his position! He's got what he wanted and you should be celebrating. He also has a year to get work experience to get some ideas of specialties he might be interested in and to do other things like travelling and enjoying a relaxing year!

    He/we is/are now (very!); it was the 8 weeks wait while others were being notified after a week or so that caused extreme stress and no one seemed to know what was going on when they were contacted.

    As for the year off, I agree, it is a great position to be in. I also feel sorry for the people who have not got interviews or who have been rejected; it's a damn horrible situation when the majority of people are so capable.
    Even though I am pleased he has an offer, the concept of waiting 8 weeks is off putting. And is the offer deferred because of an error not on his behalf? That is the point that frustrates me.

    I don't think he should be grateful of the fact that he has an offer because other people havnt - he did work hard for it and the offer justifies the effort he put in.

    That being said, Congrats on the offer!
