    got 50/60, bang on 25 in each of the scoring systems. should i even bother?
    If you've had mitigating circumstances then they might add points on. Otherwise though, the probability of getting an interview is really unlikely I'm afraid

    Anyone have a better understanding of the interview? I know it's MMI, but what happens at each station, what questions are asked/what scenarios are played through? Thanks!

    They change what happens at the stations each year. All you can do is your best. I think that knowing what stations came up the year before would hinder you as you would rely too much on that knowledge such that when faced with completely different scenarios, you'll be thrown off. Plus it'd be totally unfair on the other candidates!
    They'll assess:
    Verbal communication
    Written communication
    Listening
    Problem solving
    Motivation and suitability

    Would you say 59/60 guarantees an interview too?
    I'd say so

    Wow! That is extremely quick! I feel nervous for you! Are you getting any help/advice with regard to the interview? It is now getting to the very serious stage which is just stomach churning. Well done. You must be one of the first to have an acknowledgement,:thumbsup:

    I got an acknowledgement from Leicester today an hour after the application was sent to UCAS, didn't think it would be so quick!
    Same here - Leicester are really efficient, but haven't had any other responses from other unis...

    Ohh right. Erm no I have NOT contacted Liverpool but like you say I have not seen anything like that for Liverpool and if it were the case I'm sure they would have clearly mentioned it like Lancaster did. You haven't applied to Lancaster before so you're fine and you say you've changed your statement a lot so it is probably a lot better than the old one so honestly I wouldn't worry about it.



    Hey it just applies to people that have applied to Lancaster before...hmm not sure why it would apply to people resitting the year unless one applied before but is also resitting the year in which case it would also apply to them. If one is resitting the year but hasn't applied before it wouldn't apply to them as it would be the first statement they have submitted to Lancaster so it would be fine

    Can an I just ask why my Lancaster thread has been merged into the Leicester thread? They are two separate medical schools as far as I'm aware

    I'm not sure.. Report the OP or something and ask them to separate the threads

    I literally have no idea, when I initially commented it was just the Lancaster 2014 thread and it only had two pages.I think one of the mods might have accidentally merged them but I don't see why they would do that

    Yeah you're right the completley separate medical schools

    Apparently last year you needed atleast 57/60 to have a chance of interview based on your academics and ukcat, and then after that your personal statement is looked at. I have 56/60 for these both. Does anyone know if this 57 point system is true or not =/
