    Questions tricky and nerves not helping - haha. But different people have different strengths so don't be too disheartened by our pessimism.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    There is a holiday inn near Colliers Wood tube station which is only 2 stops from Tooting Broadway station which is a five to ten minute walk to the hospital. Don't really think Tooting itself has any hotels so you are probably best staying a short tube ride away.

    Anyone who's had their interview already, did you take any other documents apart from the ones emailed to us e.g. DBS, student entry and work experience forms. I've got work experience letters also. Is that it? I'm under the impression it's just your passport for identification? They haven't made it very clear.

    One of the correspondences has a table of exactly what you need in each envelope."Information for candidates invited to interview 2015" is the one.I'm not sure how much clearer they could be.

    You also need photocopies of work experience letters if you want to keep the originals, photocopy of your passport and also original exam certificates and statement of results from uni. (And photocopies - not very eco friendly are they!)

    they now have 3 sets of my certificates etc, one for my BSc, one for my MRes and now GEP too. They also refuse to just look at my transcripts, I had to ask them for copies and gave them straight back.

    Did they tell you they monitor the message boards as well? Unashamedly sucking up is not going to win you a place

    I spent the weekend following my interview over analysing every aspect, even though I knew it wouldn't help. Just try to look at the next step in your application, which is hopefully the next interview

    We were told that if you don't have any references by now for whatever reason then you are essentially ****ed!
    It's completely different from what all the forms say but I don't know what to do now!

    You were told this on the day? I think they want to avoid people snowballing them with references to be attached at the end. Get all the references you can asap, I don't think they need to be significant in any way other than to describe your duties. Then beg SGUL to take the letters or consider contacting the referees directly

    They said today the references are assessed and goes towards our offer
    Something I've also never been told as well :/

    The guide definitely says the reference need only include the duties undertaken... My work reference is **** as my manager had little time to do it, it's quite literally 4 lines.

    I've just been investigating my old emails from last year, and last year we heard next week. Since everything seems to be on the same timeframe, I'm hoping that this means we'll know soon.

    Not sure if this is good or bad. Less time to hope...I am in a bed and breakfast at Swansea (for me interview) and I still keep checking this thread every two hours. .
