    Hi there,

    As far as we know, the largest difference occurs for undergraduate, and graduate entry applicants. Often universities go through one set (either undergrad OR grad entry) of applicants first, then process the second one afterwards.

    If you are an undergraduate applicant, many other undergrad applicants will be in their final year of school, so lots of students will be 17 still.

    We'd recommend you try giving the admissions offices of the medical schools you applied to a call, to double check.

    We hope this helps, and good luck!

    GUYS, has anyone applied to both Oxford and King's and just got a King's interview?
    I'm freaking out bc I don't know what to do?!?!

    King's want a response in one week, even though the interview reply deadline is 8/12/15???
    But do you think they will reschedule for a possible Oxford interview?? Will it lower my chances? King's is an absolute dream and I'd love to go, but I don't want to risk Oxford?? :/ (after the BMAT an interview seems highly unlikely, but still)

    Oxford give out dates on 2nd/ 3rd Dec for either 13-14th Dec or 14-15th, and you can't reschedule theirs.

    But my King's interview is 15th Dec morning? And I really don't want it rescheduled for mock time, or like March or something. Or even worse, NOT RESCHEDULED AT ALL, which is possible apparently?!

    BMAT results are not out til the 25th I think. So don't expect anything from Oxford. Don't stress yourself out about that. Go for that first one, like how they test first come, first serve basis. Then wait till u hear from
    Oxford.

    King's whoop. Only problem is that all my interviews are in December :/
    Birmingham- 2nd of December
    King's- 14th of December
    Nottingham- 18th of December
    (and if I get Oxford it will be between 13-15th of December)

    That seems like too many interviews in such a short space of time, what should I do? :/

    Hello everyone,

    I have two simple interview questions regarding empathy.

    Firstly, how important is empathy in doctor-patient interaction?

    Secondly, how should empathy best acquired?

    Thank you!
