    Do you think when they ask about work experience do you think two well developed examples are sufficient
    I've also seen that one of the interview check boxes is "Ability to multitask" how does one show this

    Yeah that makes sense. Can't believe I've made it this far with my AS grades and my BMAT was very average if not below.Maybe my personal statement made up for that.

    Anyways that for reassuring me I think I have a better idea as to what to expect now
    Yh ikr!!! my bmat was quite bad... (4.6 5.4 3A lol...) surprised i got an interview! but i guess it shows that bmat isnt their primary factor this yr otherwise im pretty sure i wouldv been the first to be rejected haha.

    No worries

    Depends on the context imo. ill explain, since the more examples u hav, the more possible examples u have to back up wt u say in many different situations. So lets say u had 2 examples, one about how a doctor dealt with stress and one about how a doctor spoke gave bad news to a patient. But the interview q is based around ethical then from those 2 examples u hav there isnt much u can refer to with regards to ethical. So imo, try to recall as many different examples as u can and expand on them a lot. this way ur ready for any type of qs they throw at u and u can back up with examples (well explained and thought throo) which makes sure they know u were paying attention in ur work exp and u learnt stuff from it. If ur unlucky enough to hav the 2 examples and they ask u about something completely different that u cant relate the examples to then it just makes u sound a bit boring, but if u can expand the 2 examples to a lot of different contexts then it may show them uve thought a lot. So rlly just depends the breadth of the examples.

    about the multitasking, take in a pen and spin it in ur fingers while simultaneously listening and then simultaneously answering and giving eye contact - alot of multitasking there imo. or try to breath in and out while u r speaking without stopping speaking...:cool:

    I know of course I meant if they ask the "tell us about your work experience" two detailed examples would be enough

    What was your bmat if you don't mind my asking? It's just because mine wasn't too great either and I'm hearing that other people with below average BMAT's got interviews so idk maybe there's still hope! 😃

    Can't seem to find this email, do you know what date it was sent?
    Last email I received from them was on the 26th November (unless you count the email on bursaries on the 17th Dec.)

    Do you mind sending me what the email said please?
