    Hey!

    I just joined TSR. Does any one know whether its still normal for me to be waiting for an interview invite? I'm an international and I don't know what to expect! I got 735 on the ukcat (I think) and I'm getting a bit worried. My stats otherwise are fine..

    Uncalled for if you have nothing good to say then keep it to yourself.

    People who grew up in a different country/who did not go through the UK education system may not be as familiar with the UKCAT as someone like yourself. What if the rule is you take the median of subset scores rather than the mean? Call me mentally retarded but I don't even really remember my subset scores from a test I took half a year ago.

    Whether the UKCAT is a suitable indicator of aptitude is debatable but if it is, Yes95 is obviously very bright. You, on the other hand...

      Guys! best thing is to ignore this person (Hugby1) and not fuel his ego any longer.
      Or even better, report his stupid posts and get him blocked

      You just called yourself 'mentally retarded'? How politically correct your phraseology is... As an aspiring medic I would have thought you would be less less crass. In future please refer to yourself as just plain handicapped? Just a thought.
      Oh goodness no. That's not what I meant! It was just colloquialism, which I thought was appropriate on an internet forum and obviously not in any professional setting. I am an international applicant just like Yes96, and I found your comment a little belittling, that's all. I apologise.
