    I just called up admissions but I don't know how reliable the information is but the guy said that they'd started giving them out, however he didn't sound sure at all! has anyone else called them up?
    I emailed them. But they haven't answered yet

    Just phoned. The November interviews will be for graduates. School leavers will be interviewed from the beginning of December and invitations for interview will go out roughly two weeks before each interview date.

    Going on last year's thread - it looks like strongest first.

    Theory: Ridiculously high UKCAT:GCSE scorers were invited to interview first. We don't know this because they don't procrastinate on TSR. XP

    Any graduates (hell, any human being for that matter) heard anything from kings????

    Even if grads are being interviewed end of Nov, they should bloody well have heard from kings by now...

    UGHHHH. Patience running low.

    Hmm... someone mentioned in a few posts earlier that they called up Kings and was told that grads get interviewed in Nov and the rest Dec onwards. Someone else mentioned earlier that they called up and was told Kings only start interviewing in Dec all together...

    Why is there such inconsistency from Kings?!?!?!

    I swear Kings is just trying to mess with us... :mad: It's hard to believe they are actually this uncoordinated and disorganized.

    Here is the letter PWC posted:

    Dear Applicant

    Thank you for applying for the Graduate Entry Medicine Programme at King’s College London.

    We are currently in the process of assessing all applications for our Medicine programmes, we receive thousands of applications and it does take some time to assess the eligibility of them all. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know if you are to be invited to an interview. In the meantime we may need to contact you if we require further information via MyApplication so please ensure you check your messages regularly.

    For the graduate programme we run multiple mini interviews, these are scheduled over two days in January. Due to the nature of the interviews it is not possible to interview applicants at any other time. The interviews will take place on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th January 2014, please make a note of these dates in case you are invited to interview.

    If you have any questions about the admissions process you can always contact us via MyApplication.

    The Medicine Admissions Team
    Ah I see the misunderstanding here. You were talking about grad interviews only. I was talking about interviews in general I'm not a grad. Anyway, I hope you helped the grads on here!

    Hi guys, I'm just going into 2nd year doing medicine at King's. If you've got any questions about applying or the course, feel free to ask.
    Hi, I hope you can help, but understand if you can't because I know the workload you have! But, if you could, could you shed some light on what the interview process is like and out of the ordinary questions I should be aware of? Thanks!
