    You won't hear until 2 weeks before the interview.


    They mark the personal statements out of 15. 5 points for each of the "non-academic entry requirements" that are in the prospectus.

    Hope that helps!

    have motivation and initiative (so study work experience self study adult education does that cover this)
    are literate and articulate (good english)
    have the ability to demonstrate a commitment to becoming a doctor (self educating travellung 4 hours a day to an access course)

    Work experiences isn't a specific criteria. It is the three you've listed above.


    I can't tell you if it is enough. Only admissions can do that. :yes:.

    If they're choosing 96 out of about 600, then I'm assuming it'll be mostly the 15/15's that'll get the interviews, which is a very subjective point system :/

    This is very true. I think they have a lot more guidance on how to score those things, it's just that I don't know about it though, it its less arbitrary than it seems :yes:.

    And do you need a lot of work.experience on your personal.statement
    Its about the quality of the experience what you have learnt and picked up along the way and how those experiences have benefited you.
    Its quality over quantity but you should gain as much experience as possible

    That means that interviews will be informed in like 2-3 weeks. That's nerve wracking.

    Question: are parents allowed to take you to the interview and can they wait? Do you get any financial help for funding travel to an interview?

    They probably cant wait with you but they can wait on campus. Students will be there to keep you calm.

    Travel costs up to £100 can be reimbursed.
