    Does anyone know if you have to wait till all the interviews are over to hear anything back or do offers (and rejections :/) just come after the interviews, if that makes sense
    They said after the interview that they will be giving out offers before all of the interviews have finished, and aim to have them all done before the deadline (31st march)

    Any advice on how to answer an interview question like "Take us through your personal statement."

    Do you just go through it bit by bit in order or is there a structure to follow?

    They don't have your personal statement and they won't have read it either

    Try to stay positive, you never know! Worst case scenario, you'll have other unis anyway so don't be too disheartened!

    I've been getting a couple of messages from people claiming to have already had the interview and wanting to compare how things went but after a while it becomes pretty obvious that they haven't actually been through it and that they're just fishing for questions. Some people try to make their claims sound realistic by talking about how they "found the ethics difficult" or were asked "why do you want to study medicine?" (when we already knew ethics were going to be involved/certain questions have a high probability of being asked).

    Please could everyone be careful if you're going to talk about how it went (both on here and in PMs) or talking about comparisons with interviews from other unis. Even if you're going to disregard the form we all signed, it's giving other people an unfair advantage and allowing them to prepare for questions that we weren't necessarily expecting. We've all worked hard to even get an interview in the first place - don't ruin your chances now!

    Ah mate, don't worry about it All my preparation for King's was essentially useless, none of what I'd prepared for came up aha xD but even so, I'm glad that none of it did because it helped me to think on my feet and properly respond to what they were saying, instead of giving half rehearsed answers. So don't stress, just go in there and be yourself and you'll be fine
    Ngl, it is super intense. I was practically pissing myself once the briefing had finished :lol:
