    Hi no you don't need them. There will be about 140 people taking the exam so they don't have time to check them. You get asked to bring them on the day of the interview if you get one.
    Hi, do you know if everyone is given the chance to sit the exam? or have they narrowed it down?

    Thanks! I'm not too sure I think they invite everyone who meets their basic requirements.

    hey does anyone know if the whole interview for Aberdeen is completley MMI style, is there not a point which you will sit down infront of a panel and get asked questions like 'why do you want to study dentistry' etc...

    I've also got my interview on that day. Done an MMI interview at Cardiff a few years back and I found it really intense. Although Aberdeen do have some guidance at what you're likely to be asked on there website, Cardiff didn't so I felt like I was thrown into the unknown.

    As for the Cardiff MMI there were about 12 stations testing different things (manual dexterity, empathy, problem solving, creativity etc)

    Didn't she say after that rejections would appear on track in a couple weeks, and interviews some time after that?

    Aberdeen is in the UK, and it's an NHS programme so isn't it the funding the same? (Fund first 3500 and eligible for student loan for the rest of tuition fees?)

    I hope this is the case
    Hey

    you get the same as if you were doing a graduate dental degree anywhere else in the uk so don't worry about that. You are also eligible for SAAS funding meaning you can get another £1600 of your tuition paid for in the first year and you can get £4000 per year on top of that.

    Coming from the UK you also get a bursary form the uni towards your accommodation around christmas of £2000, so don't worry too much about funding


    good luck in your interview Its a great school to be part of
