    What makes you think that??
    The questions and interviewers were quite nice but I panicked and let myself down. I could have done so much better

    Fair enough. Would you have said it was a fairly relaxed interview?

    Mines tomorrow, reading the comments on here doesn't fill me with any confidence ahaha
    Nah, trust me, the uni staff and interviewers made it very pleasant and straightforward.

    I back this! They're all smiles and try and give prompts wherever they can if you look like you're struggling

    When say prompts, I don't mean clues to the answer I'm afraid, but they're encouraging!

    Were the questions difficult? & were they all on ethics? Hope you did well
    You're putting people in an uncomfortable position where they want to help you but they aren't really allowed to provide the details you're asking for, especially when Plymouth use the same questions for everyone.

    Nah, I was talking about the bit where you asked if the questions were all about ethics or if something else gets asked. A bit too specific, there, IMO.

    Agreed, i've had a few PMs asking me about specific questions and as much as I want to help, it's not fair to anyone who had their interview early. Good luck to everyone who still has their interview! Im sure you will do well without knowing specifics! I personally wouldnt want to be treated by a doctor who got in to medical school through dishonesty 😂

    Everyone who had theirs today, I hope it went well (hopefully those of you who felt it went badly did better than you think ) and good luck to everyone having theirs tomorrow! Might have crossed paths with some of you, arrived in Plymouth earlier and I'm staying overnight.

    Glad to hear the interviewers are friendly, makes the whole thing a lot easier than if it's all very formal IMO.

    Quick question - is there anywhere you can leave your stuff before/while you're doing the interview? Just asking as I'll have to check out a few hours before the actual interview and didn't want to be lugging all my stuff around in between if I could avoid it haha

    There is a reception on the first floor where there is room to leave stuff behind, provided you're comfortable leaving it there. Perhaps you could ask one of the ladies at the reception tables (who check your identity etc.) if they could look over your bags when you're in the interview.

    I didn't see anyone actually bringing their stuff into the interview floor, though. Could you not have booked a room at Jury's Inn?

    You will definitely be able to leave bags on the interview floor when you go into the interview.
    Also, if you spent the night before at the Jury's Inn then I'm sure they will be happy to look after your bags during the day for you downstairs if you ask at reception.
    Good luck!

    Thank you! Just wanted to make sure that was something I could do, thanks for the reassurance

    I'm actually in a room there tonight haha, but it is just for the one night and my interview isn't until fairly late in the afternoon tomorrow. (I'm aware my booking arrangements could have been better but I'm working the day after and wanted to avoid having to take the day off.)
    Thanks for the help!
