    Dw, not just you i think they're basically starting with highest GCSE's and people who are applying after a gap year. Soon it'll be our turn just don't lose hope
    I know, I thought I had pretty good GCSEs though!
    I think I'll relax when I've just had one interview- I want to know I have a chance of going to uni!!

    I'm sure we'll hear back before new year- the wait is long but we can't do much.

    Does anyone have any idea what order they're giving out interviews? I only have 9A*s so i thought maybe it was highest GCSEs first but people with less/the same have started getting interviews I know i should be patient but as re-applicant its hard not to worry! any ideas?
    It looks like highest number of A*s first with a ukcat cut off in the order applications were received. The last batch seem to have put in late applications.

    Just working as a HCA, volunteering at a primary school and singing and piano lessons and having a life in my spare time. Got a trip to Europe planned next year - backpacking with two of my best friends! What've you got planned for your gap year?
    Oh so quite northern-y unis! (I'm as far down south as you can go so anything above London is north for me haha!)
    Omg I saw that after all the giddy happiness and then it hit me that I'm going to have to prepare really hard for this! Stupid essays!

    Backpacking sounds amazing! I'm volunteering at a medical museum (lol I basically just do arts and crafts with kids) and I start soon at a care home, part of a programme where I run campaigns about issues affecting young people and then I do a little bit of tutoring. Good for you getting a HCA job, must be such hard work. I'm so hopelessly unemployed...genuinely failed the online assessment to work at Gregg's I'm going to try getting temp work in offices...I want to go to Spain!
    Birmingham isn't north! Haha I'm from Yorkshire so I'm a little wary of the south lol.
    Ooh I wish I could sing, because I love to act but I can never be in musicals *sigh* unless there's one about dying cats...
    I know right! And we only have 15 mins to write an essay?!

    Congrats on your interview :-) I just wanted to ask, have they given you like an extra-curricular form you need to fill out, with the contact details of your work experience etc required?

    Also, what is this essay thing, are they making people right essays this year?

    What will happen on the day

    You should report for your interview at least 40 minutes before it starts. When you arrive you will be registered and given two preliminary tasks

    Task 1: You will be handed a brief ethical case study to read and consider, you will be asked about this as part of the interview and selection process

    Task 2: You will be given an essay question to answer, this essay will not be marked on the day but may be taken into consideration later to differentiate candidates who score very similarly in the interview. The essay question will be about the values and attributes of doctors, you will not need any advanced knowledge or preparation.

    You will have 15 minutes to complete each of these tasks. As it is important that interviews run to time, late arrival may reduce the time available for completion of the preliminary tasks. Your interview will be with members of clinical and academic staff and will last around 15-20 minutes.

    Sorry, this may have been asked before but I've just joined this thread - do you know if this is the same for GEM or are you just referring to school leavers?

    Thanks
