    Has anyone who has been asked for interview called up King's and asked them whether it is a questionnaire or an essay? I think all the people in the new bacth say that their letter says it is a questionnaire (as with mine) and this could be because essay questions were leaked.
    Yeah they really need to clear this up.

    I feel it went ok, my ethical scenario analysis was not too great but I was hoping it was good enough... how about yourself?
    Yeah same I guess, hard to tell because whenever you look back at the interview you always think of loads of better stuff you could have said haha! I dunno, some parts were ok, but some I think I was just babbling on! What time was yours?!

    Also getting confused by this, if they said its a questionnaire it should be, they can't give us an essay when we haven't been told about it

      Yeah I hope they do, I feel my work over a few years is equally, if not more, reflective of myself then one 15min chat Ohh I didn't even notice! I know there were holidays, but they said we would hear back within 2-3 weeks! So taking away the holiday period, we should be hearing back real soon (this week I assume) :eek:

      I have had a look at their 6 year course but that says that you should have not attended a selective sixth form and not school. I currently do attend a selective sixth form.

      Are you sure about the selective school thing?

      aaah bummer... When I looked at it when I was looking at my options last yr it said you can't have taken your GCSE's at a selective school. Maybe they changed it since. I'm really sorry to hear that BUT Do you go to a non grammer, (soz scuse the spelling, little dyslexic) non private school? Because St Georges love that! and more if your not an Asian girl. Before anyone has a go at that comment it IS true. I was told by a Heart surgeon at UCL Heart hospital who is a part of the UCL selection process that Georges had a seperate interview day for asian girls to compete between themselves because they are the majority group receiving offers. Hope that rant helps

      Woah that's shocking! It might be true but there should be equal competition between applicants, regardless of their ethnicities.
