    Edinburgh. Rejected from Aberdeen post interview and Glasgow pre-interview.[/QUOTE

    I am nearly the same, rejected from Glasgow pre-interview, Waiting list for Aberdeen and offer from Edinburgh ☺️



    UKCAT let me down for Glasgow (cut off was around 2700 and I got 2680) 😔
    I was really surprised by getting an offer as I thought I would lose quite a few points on edinburgh's scoring system.
    I got waitlisted for Aberdeen too and I was seriously surprised about Edinburgh because I only got 2630 for UKCAT.

    We're exactly the same! I got offered the waiting list but as I have an offer I asked them to remove me . And we have the same UKCAT.

    How did you get an offer from Edinburgh but not Glasgow PRE interview?

    Just curious because surely Edinburgh is way harder?
    Glasgow rank by UKCAT to interview, whereas Edinburgh use personal statement etc. Also I'm leaps eligible so that helps at Edinburgh

    anybody had any offers elsewhere?
    Offer from Glasgow last night and rejection from Edinburgh last week
    UKCAT was 2670
    Thinking it was my interview for Gladgow cause they really got to see what I'm like and you can talk about loads more than you can fit in 4000 characters for PS

    thank you tho!
    wbu?
    I found dundee super hard tbh. I walked out feeling like I was blown any chance of being there. I forgot who I was meant to be half way through the role play.

    "so why have you come to see me... "
    actor "no... you asked me to come see you"
    me: "oh yes... thats right, why did I ask you again?" haha

    Know exactly how you feel.

    I don't want to say too much about the interview because of the NDA, but I thought it was a poorly thought out exercise and, more importantly, a missed opportunity to withdraw useful information from interviewees.

    They give you the big spiel before your interviews start about how they were the first UK medical school to bring the MMI to the country; yet, the environment they create is, IMO, not conducive to optimal interviewee performance and borderline hostile. By comparison, Aberdeen had a much better grasp of 1) the optimal interview environment, and 2) the structure of the MMI.

    I suspect though, the environment they make is deliberate and to test other aspects of your performance, such as how to remain calm in uncertainty and manage immediate and demanding information.

    on reflection as well there were discrepancies in some of the info giving by the actors in the role play, which again I suspect they wanted you to try and pick up on. at the time I didn't I was to busy trying to remember what station I was at :P

    Aberdeen was a lot nicer. I know what you mean by the interview environment
