    Anyone still waiting on interview emails? Got an email from Keele a few days ago saying they're now reviewing my application. Does it seem likely that I can get an interview this late? Is it common?
    I've just been checking out last years thread; on there the last day an interview was given out seems to be the 10th of March so although like me you're probably constantly checking your emails, I wouldn't worry yet. No news is not bad news necessarily!

    The website says they aim to give 2 weeks notice for interview dates and the last one is around the 23rd March so we could be waiting a while yet!

    Do you guys think they could be going through applications in order of submission? I sent mine in just before the deadline and haven't heard anything yet

    2:1 in biomed and 632 UKCAT. My stats aren't great as you can see but I think what got me the interview was probably my work experiences and some of the responsibilities I have had previously. Hope you get yours soon!!

    What did you put on the roles and responsibilities form? That's what they base interviews on, and I think as long as the experience was long term and you didn't pay for a course then it should be fine hopefully we'll hear soon

    I put my current job as a nursing assistant and ChildLine counsellor in 2011. How about yourself? I hope these are sufficient enough. Hope so!

    I think more than what you did it's important what you took from it and how you relate it to the NHS constitution.

    Your nursing assistant job should be totally fine as long as you've done it for a while. I volunteered at a geriatrics ward and i've done some mentoring and was president of society at uni.

    That's great I've done a nursing home for two years and I was a rainbow leader for two years and various volunteering at doctors surgerys and two hospitals, one of which was over a year then I put my circumstances for not getting into medicine first time which was the death of my father. They also check postcodes at Keele to see who comes from deprived areas as well, and I grew up on a council estate in a rough area
