    Southampton said on the phone that all the interviews have been sent out by now; they have a list and if people don't reply to interview then they will work down it (based on UKCAT score, I guess). Just thought I'd let anyone know who is still patiently waiting lol....
    Did you happen to ring Newcastle? I may call tomorrow

    Just arrange to get it now? Keep a folder of signed references on headed paper along with their up to date contact details and/or a disk of digital references. Even if you don't get interviews this year you might want to reapply next year, in which case it's all sorted.

    Like Warwick say- get the reference and permission to forward contact details at the time of placement to avoid this kind of last minute anxiety.
    Just for reference, how many slips are you going to get? I've got three so far but they're my long term voluntary positions. Are you planning on getting references for your shadowing placements?

    I have a certificate for shadowing, a time sheet for ward volunteering and a letter with hours stated for hospice volunteering- hope they work

    Is it possible to use wage slips then as proof? That'll save me getting a reference/contact for work.

    So... I haven't received an email from Kings but just checked my Kings apply account and I had an interview. So people might want to check there if they haven't.

    Aaahhhh thank you so much for saying this!! I checked too and I got an interview. I wish I could kiss you. I was so upset after hearing Southampton weren't sending anymore interviews. my ukcat is 717.5, band 1 for those who haven't heard yet

    Congrats to everyone getting interviews! Makes me wish I applied to more UKCAT unis with my 740. I'm still waiting for my unis to get back to me :')

    Anyone else still waiting on Notts or SGUL?

    Received an interview from King's today Not feeling very confident having just seen that only 42 offers are made for 28 places. Anyone know the number of people invited to interview or have stats for previous years?

    just seen newcastle were handing out interviews about a week ago this time last year! So may be soon! Pretty sure I'll get rejection anyway with UKCAT 710. Just waiting for Warwick is only real go.

    Quite a few people have heard back this year. There were a bunch of people who got interviews on the 19th and another bunch a few days ago. There's an a101 Newcastle thread. I don't have a link because I'm on my mobile but search and you'll find it

    I have my main employment which is largely clinical in MDTs and then then I have my placement reviews going back over the three previous years at the big teaching hospitals I rotated through. But I also wanted to get brief letters from the docs I have been shadowing outside of my day job too. I have the wound care team, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery & ENT surgery done but I also have Derm, pathology and cardiology yet to do. I don't have any solid time in GP but I have done GP recruitment and support work for junior doctors so maybe that's enough, it's definitely an unusual take on getting insight.
