    Do you know when Nottingham/QUB will start sending out interviews? Thanks
    Hi there,

    QUB haven't sent out any yet, as they are still processing applications. They will be sending out invitations around Christmas time.

    Nottingham also haven't out any yet, but are going to start sending out invitations to interview by the end of this week. However, they aren't sending them all out in one go, so students will receive invitations in batches. So, don't worry if you aren't invited by the end of this week!

    In the mean time, why not check out our free blogs for general interview tips?

    Good luck,

    Hi there,

    So we've heard back from Exeter Medical School. They say that ideally everyone should hear back by the end of today! However, they have had a system fault, so the last invitations to interview may get sent out tomorrow.

    Also, it makes no difference if you are an international student. You'll either hear back by the end of today, or tomorrow latest.

    In the mean time, in preparation for any interviews you may have been invited to, why not check out our free blogs? They are written by doctors and medical students, and cover how to tackle interviews! We've also got weekly medical news summary blogs, to help you stay up to date with NHS hot topics, and the latest medical developments.

    Good luck,

    TMP
    Thanks a lot!

    If it's to anyone's comfort, I just spoke with Nottingham university and HYMS, they said they have not released any invitations yet as of the moment. They might start sending the first batch starting Friday of this week.

    Oh tell me about it. They said they haven't finished assessing the UCAS applications. I don't know if they will have to wait for the completion of them all, which is a bit fair. Then that's the time they will send the invites. She hasn't mention though is the invitation are in a particular order or not, but she said if we don't receive one this or next week, it doesn't necessarily mean we are not getting any.
