    Ohh so what do they do?? that seems strange!
    It sounded to me like each station tests a different skill, the girl I spoke to said one was maths, problem solving. Then a scenario and your response, I think she said hers was how would she deal with a patient that exceeded the chair weight limit? Also manual dexterity is tested, she had to thread floss through a needle using tweezers. This is 2nd hand info though so I cant confirm the accuracy lol x

    No, nothing from them yet

    How did you guys find today? I thought it was horrific and unfair. I thought we'd at least get some one to one time with someone. Not just stations :dontknow:

    Careful they might be reading your posts and not offer you a place now!

    I thought the Bristol interview was much the same as the Cardiff one I went to last year. No one seems to do interviews anymore, I think most Dental Schools do stations. My friend went to do Dentistry at Cardiff and they had 10 stations to go round. I suppose it is fair if everyone gets exactley he same experience and time.

    I thought mine was difficult as I found the maths test hard, but I suppose you never know how everyone else has done.

    Lets all keep our fingers crossed until we hear back.
