    do you think I would have ruined my chances because I did not mention half the things I wanted to at the interview?
    I forgot to mention several things that would have helped to sell myself, and only gave standard mediocre answers instead of showing my real potential
    Cannot stop thinking abt it now
    Me too!
    Plus my 'bad cop' interviewer got up to get me some water which really threw me and then they asked me a question and my mind went blank and I froze for so long!
    Hopefully I will get a place elsewhere as it seems as though I won't be going to Glasgow

    They mentioned on Tuesday's interview that the interviews hold in Feb will be for those can't make their December interview and international student only. I could be wrong though.
    That's what I was told by them too. The vast majority of interviews are done this week, with only internationals and those with extenuating circumstances having theirs in the new year.

    Had my interview today and I must be the lucky one, both my panels of interviewers were the nicest people! They were very enthusiastic and seemed genuinely interested in what I was saying, straying off from the 'usual' interview questions by asking me how I had managed to get such unique work experience placements... I'm trying not to get excited but I'm honestly so happy with how it went!! Roll on the next one!!!

    both of my panels were lovely, so smiley and friendly, they really put me at ease!
    i actually started to enjoy myself when i was in there, the man on my second panel (the ethics one) was friendly, but did try and trip me up with a few questions.

    One of my interviewers was talking too quietly and I didn't understand what she was saying even after I'd asked her to repeat the question, so I just gave a random answer that probably had no relevance to the question lol oh dear

    They asked me the same question on both stations, on one of them (ethics one) I felt like I bored them and I left stuff out which they addressed. Then in the second one i spiced it up and they seemed to love it. The 1st one was somewhat like a warm up to me! Thankfully it was ethics and my ethics was correct so hopefully that will go in my favour!

    Actually, I found the interviewers at the ethical scenario not too bad, one smiled more and seemed more friendly than the other but the other guy didn't always have a blank face. Hopefully that was becuase I gave good answers. That sounds nasty, MMI was better in that, they asked everyone pretty much the same I think and didn't follow up. I'm sure you did fine, they may have just been tired as it's the last chunk of interviews. At least your other pannel was alright!
    That's good, I'm sure you did fine on the ethical panel. All the best with the other universities you've applied to!

    If you're a UK based student and you haven't heard yet for an interview, from what I was told, that means you don't have an interview. Sorry guys.

    Feb is for over seas students and people who had good reason not to make their original appointment in December.

    Lol no. I said a few dumb things. The important thing is that you laugh at yourself and take the piss a bit when you know you came across as a ****.

    I even left my folder at one of the stations and had to go back in to get it, I looked like a proper idiot infront of all the other people/interviewers

    Just talked crap basically. I rambled at a few stations.

    I think it's pretty easy to tell if you have got an offer or not

    We didn't start thinking about any of that stuff last year until we actually got accepted. Not that I think you wont get in or anything I'm sure you will, but there's plenty of time to choose accommodation etc once you've got your offers through, no point building up your hopes for one particular uni
