    Hi! I also found this station particularly difficult.
    I had my interview on Tuesday and I just felt the pressure on this station was more so than any other other station.

    Overall, I think I mucked up the interview but hey, you gotta have some hope right :-D
    Hey, I 100% agree, for some reason I felt so much more under pressure in this one! And I misread the instructions so put myself at a disadvantage Oh well :/

    I'm sure you did better than you thought I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Not too long now

    The one where you do something for 3 mins and then do something else for the rest.
    Guess I'm not the only one who struggled at that station then!

    Me 3! I felt quite rushed at this station This might just be me but I felt this interview as a whole seemed way more of a 'ticking boxes' kind of interview, compared to my others where it seemed as though they really did want to get a good idea of your personality and qualities.

    Did anyone else get a PM from a guy who said he had the Leicester interview already?

    At first he was generally asking how I found the interview. Then he wanted me to tell him the questions I got to so he could compare them with what he supposedly had in his interview.

    He was extremely persistent, sent me around 6 PM's. Why would someone want to know anyone else's Q's, I tell you some people on TSR are so sneaky. I can't believe the lengths some people would go to in order to get information.

    Please be aware of people asking for info and please do not disclose any information about the different stations, after all you are reducing your own chances of getting a place.

    Perhaps naming and shaming would stop this sort of behaviour

    I had a message from someone saying they had their interview in December for 5 year course, they then listed all the stations they had and asked if it was similar for the grad course... I was curious but they listed all the stations I basically had anyway!

    This is what Perfectchoice wrote in another thread, it makes a lot of sense.

    "anybody who discloses information of their interview are actually reducing their chances of an offer, if it means recipients of that information can prepare better for their interview and score higher than the person who discloses the information. Why give somebody else an advantage to take your place? Not everybody interviewed gets an offer so you are in competition still.

    To be fair, everybody being interviewed needs to start from the same position of only knowing the information the Uni sends you with the invite."

    This was from medapp123

    Hey, seen you post on the leicester medicine 2014 forum. Leicester's my only chance now When do you think leicester will get back? Also how did your interview go there?! Which station did you find the hardest? I felt like I messed it up, completely unexpected, especially the station with the actors. Also only managed to finish like half of the maths ones

    I said I'd found the maths hard and that I slipped up (at this point I thought it was legit) and that was all, so nothing specific only things that we knew would be in the interview, but then they emailed me back saying they'd had questions on the staffs hospital scandal and asked me which questions I had, so I just didn't reply.

    Yeah, he emailed me back also asking questions about the different stations. As I said please don't fall for this. Its alright giving general advice to some people that are genuinely worried about the interview. I certainly wouldn't want to jeopardise my chances, you never know who has access to the PM's.

    I had the same PM a few days ago!!!

    I was the same as you. I naively replied back, but said something vague like 'I found a few stations quite unnerving' and then the next PM went on to ask how I found the questions about mid staffs scandal, why medicine opposed to nursing and why the high drop out rates in medicine. He also asked me what questions I was asked.

    I knew something was fishy then so I ignored the PMs

    Exactly! I know not to discuss it anyway as I want to get in over someone else, as we all do! I just didn't realise people were that dishonest about it really, and I hope no one gives away anything! It was a very sly trick. It's all well and good at the interview helping with confidence, but not telling them the questions and giving them an unfair advantage.

    Doubt it very much. This is just some really clever, really sly person trying to elicit info for their own benefit, It's not any different to cheating. I can't believe this person wants to become a professional respectable Dr. Shame on you medapp123, please have a look at GMC website to see the rules on cheating and on this type of behaviour.
