    They actually inform you in the day that you are 'unsuitable'? That's brutal.
    No, you get an information sheet explaining how they group people after interviews, not whether you're accepted or not.

    Haha. Just a yes or no would suffice. Rather than being told you were so near but so far!
    Thanks

    Thanks. Any books u would like to recommend for gamsat. Next year going to be my 5th year applying :/ I got everything else in terms of requirement, but the entry tests always puts me down.

    hi just noticed your post and i just wanted to offer some friendly advice if you don't mind.

    If you have been unsuccessful 5 times because of entry tests, why don't you apply to med schools which don't rely so heavily on them

    Bristol doesn't use them at all with 80% Personal statement and 20% academics.

    keele university uses roles and responsibilities form after a very low ukcat cut off

    and universities like Belfast pretty much guarantee graduates an interview.

    hope you are successful on your next attempt!

    Hi All, very late to the party but my interview is tomorrow and I can't for the life of me find any email or page in the pack about physically where the interview is and where we arrive, etc.

    Can anyone help?

    Very nervous about this as it's only my second interview but also my last chance to get in on this cycle (3 rejections from 4... yay).

    The interviews take place at the medical school in Royal Derby Hospital. I think car park 4 is the closest to the medical school.

    And all the best for your interview!

    Thank you, I think I remember the building from an open day last year. It's all in there then?

    The medical school is right at the back of the hospital. It was (or felt like!) about a ten minute walk around the building. In the pack there should be a little map of the hospital that shows it.

    Hi, I've my interview later this week and was just wondering about timing. I know it's MMI, I've had them at SGUL and Exeter so I'm not freaking out. But how long is it per station? Exeter was only 3 minutes which meant I got cut off a lot, while SGUL was 5 meaning there were some stations that ended in silence haha!

    Final interview so kinda wanting to nail it, muchas Gracias!

    I believe it's 6 minutes, according to the letter we received in the post at least. I'm yet to have my interview though (it's on Wednesday) - absolutely bricking it.

    6? Damn that's a long time to talk haha! I've no idea where my letter has gone, guess I'd better look around for it :P

    All I can say is don't panic too much, you always do better than you think you've done! Just be yourself and you'll do well

    I hope so! Thanks though man I think once I'm there I'll be fine - I am generally a very level-headed person, it's just this damn build up! Good luck for yours anyway too

    It is indeed 6 minutes (think it said that in the pack?) but I found it actually went pretty quickly. I was cut off in all but one, but I'd already made the main points and got into a dialogue with the interviewer(s), so it was OK. They're very friendly

    So Sarb told me post only, and that's what they did last year. Someone here did mention emails but I don't dare to dream

    She told our group that she may send out emails but I agree I think i would expect a letter as that's what they've always done other years by the looks of it! Good luck everyone!
