    Thank you!!

    The interview was really good. In the MMI's it goes really fast and you'll probably experience the quickest set of 5 minutes ever haha. Most is related to NHS, so make sure you know about that, as well as have a good knowledge on being a physiotherapist! Also just keep calm, the interviewers put you at ease and are very friendly. Good luck!

    I applied to Kings (wasn't suprised to be rejected from them), Brunel, Hertfordshire, Oxford Brookes and Southampton. I'm still waiting on a reply from Southampton but I'm not hopeful!

    I haven't mentioned Sport at all in my personal statement other than I volunteer to coach at a youth football team. I work full time as a Physio Assistant in MSK Outpatients in the NHS. I also work on an Orthopaedic Ward at the same hospital at weekends and have shadowed Physios on Neuro and Respiratory wards.

    I spoke to the general admissions department again today at Brunel because I've sent one of the Physio tutors countless emails which she hasn't bothered replying to and they just told me that it's a University requirement that all applicants have 7 GSCE's at grade B or above plus a B in A Level Biology. I have qualifications which are equivalent to what they're asking for, although this doesn't seem to be good enough. My main issue I think is my lack of GCSE at grade B in both Maths and Science (I have a C in both English Language and Lit) and my lack of A Level Biology. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up and gain the qualifications I need!

    I did consider the MSc but I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place because I got a 2:2 in my first degree. I doubt I'd be considered what with both courses being as competitive as each other and I'd still need A Level Biology to gain entry to the MSc.

    So frustrating! I'll get there eventually...
    You can apply to Essex for the MSc with a 2:2 I am currently on the course and I got a 2:2

    Ive got an interview at hertfordshire on wednesday as well!
    By NHS what do you mean? Are you taking about stuff like the NHS values or just keeping up with current issues relating to the NHS? Also how were the tests in the morning?
    Oh and Congrats on your offer btw!
    How long after your interview did it take to come through?

    Hi, well done on your offers from last year! I love Leeds Beckett, it's going to be my first choice and I really hope to get an interview! What did you include in your personal statement and how was the interview if you don't mind me asking?
    Hi there, thank you! In my personal statement I included why I wanted to be a Physiotherapist, a lot of work experience/voluntary work, evidence of team work, and why the three main areas of Physio interest me! They love seeing key words in personal statements such as 'multidisciplinary team, autonomous practitioner, holistic approach, patient centred care...' these will make you stand out.

    The interview is a group interview and then a single one. All the interviews I had were very similar. Expect questions like 'why Physio/what area of Physio/hobbies and interests/work experience/why would you be a good Physio/what would you bring to our univerity/what do you like about our university'.

    I'm calling uni of liverpool tomorrow:

    2 X NHS placements
    8 weeks COPD CVD rehab
    15 months at a premier league club
    5 months as a volunteer

    Response was: not enough experience
    Have you heard from Liverpool as to what they class as enough experience? There's my current work in a rehabilitation unit for where I'll be till next August, 12 months volunteering at the hospital, several years of coaching rowing and other voluntary work with riding for the disabled and another similar charity.

    I was wondering if they select from all the people who meet the minimum requirements randomly?

    No reply as of yet, I'll keep you updated but I think you need all the core areas which I do have. Baffling cause I know someone who has an interview and they've done the exact same if not less than me

    Ok, I'll make sure I read up on the NHS. By any chance in the MMIs, do they give you scenarios to respond to? (I know they do it for medicine applicants but not sure for physio)

    Thanks for your help

    Regarding reading up on NHS issues, the main story at the moment is the doctors strike. Should we be expected to be asked about this and how it will affect the NHS? Also, I was told by a physio not to say which specialism you want to work in because we're too inexperienced to make that judgement?

    The things junior doctors are striking about will undoubtedly be discussed in the future for all other health professions. Making services more 7 days a week for example. So we could be asked about what the future of Physio services is likely to be or how changes to other health care professions have effects on Physios.

    Recently there have been MSK physios based in GP practices and instead of patients being referred from a GP to a physio they are going directly to them. This changes and theoretically speeds up the flow of patients allowing people to get the treatment they need more quickly.

    Yes they do small scenarios, something that you can't really revise for but the scenarios are still very related to the NHS!

    Good luck with the interview! Yes more NHS values, I can't think of any issues that really got mentioned. I thought the tests were fairly easy, the maths bit was my favourite, the writing not so much but was still ok! I don't think many people will slip up on the tests!

    Thank you! It was 9 days after my interview. A nerve-racking 9 days haha.

    Thank you! Good luck with your interview! They weren't too hard really, with the maths you had paper to write down your working, and the english was just writing about a passage of writing you got. Make sure it is legible and makes sense and you should be fine

    Nothing wrong with saying what you are interested in, just don't say you definitely want to work in a specific area yet. As someone said above, the issue of self referral to NHS physio is a bit thing at the moment. Also in Essex there is a big fuss because they are considering dismantling an MSK outpatients clinic completely and just doing things by phone which would obviously be very detrimental to patients, but it's all because of cuts.

    Thanks for your reply. It's quite shocking what you say about Essex - it's bad all round really. I was reading today that the NHS is in it's worst financial crisis ever and some trusts are worried that they won't be able to pay wages. It makes me wonder how they can fund so many students to train up if they're struggling to pay wages for their current employees.
