    Hi guys! Does anyone know roughly how many of the interviews have been given out now? And have any rejections been given out?

    The student BMJ is good but I doubt your need to know anything in that much detail. I think most people just use the BBC's health section.

    How many interviews have they given out? I haven't heard anything and I'm getting quite worried... I haven't had any rejections but on the other hand I haven't had any interviews either yet (applied to Leeds Bristol and Sheffield as well). Any thoughts?

    GCSEs: 6A*s 4As
    ASs: AAAB
    A2 Predictions: A*A*A A

    Thanks

    Hey guys, this is aimed towards anyone who's already had their interviews. Did you feel rushed during your brief 15 minutes? I had mine recently and I felt like the interviewers were cutting me off at every corner to move onto the next question... They seemed really adamant at trying to get to know more about everything I wrote in my PS but at the same time I'd barely get to get 2 sentences out before them asking the next question. (Thinking back, I can really only remember being cut off only once or twice but I think the tenseness of the situation made me feel like it was more often?)

    I know generally speaking, 15 minutes is really short for an interview, especially of the medical school variety. Did anyone else feel like they had too many questions and not enough time planned? Or was it just my answers being too long?
    Don't worry about it, I'm a resit applicant and I had a Glasgow interview last year and it was way shorter than expected, shorter than 15 mins anyway, and I was cut off a few times too. I came out feeling so aggregated because I had so much more to say, but I think they rush so they can cover a lot and tick all the boxes, and more importantly, to get a general feel for what type of person you are. I ended up getting an offer but didn't get the grades. If you think you we're calm and showed good vibes you should do better than you expect.
