    They say the interview lasts for 15-20 minutes but it felt more like 5 to me. When I went in the clock said 11.00 and when I left it said 11:20ish so 20 minutes. But quickest 20 minutes of my life. But that's what has me worried. Was it quick because I enjoyed it? Or was it quick because I wasted time? I guess I'll find out in a few weeks time hopefully.
    I really hope that they liked you. Yeah you'll find out soon enough

    I don't know whether to focus my preparation more on my own qualities or the medical profession (duties of a doctor, nhs, ethics).

    For this interview I prepares both. One can help answer questions about how you would fit in medicine whilst the other is quite good for ethical questions. One thing that I felt hard when preparing was creating a structure to my answers, i had the knowledge but it is nothing without structure and I feel that is the main reason I am currently worried.

    Ahh I see. Would you suggest that in our preparation, we write down answers on paper and memorise them? Or do you mean like having a framework in your head for different type of questions?

    Has anyone had the thought
    That kings give out interviews based on the UCAS applications they receive first? Ie. The earlier the you submitted your application, the earlier they receive it, and the earlier you possibly get a reply!

    I checked MyApplication today and saw a message from Kings asking that I send them my UKCAT reference number to allow them to match UKCAT scores with applicants.

    They need this info by Dec 2nd

    Thought I would mention it as it appeared on the portal but I did not get an email.

    Some people here talking about lower UKCAT people being first make me sick. Is that the kind of logic you use to explain why you don't have an interview? There are people who have worked incredibly hard to get an interview and there is no need to undermine their academic ability to make yourself feel better.
    from everyone that has interviews at my college I would definitely say they're doing ukcat+gcse to rank applicants! around 8 people at my school have interviews and the first ones all have ukcats above 800 and 10A*+ and last week everyone with 9-10 A* and 750ish ukcats were called!

    I have very similar stats and also don't have an interview I don't think it's as simple as GCSEs+ukcat

    I do think that the SJT banding has a part to play too, the majority of the people on the stalking page seemed to have band 1

    Yeah maybe, but I thought there were some with band 2/3? Then again they might have loads of a*s to make up for it

    Probably :L, I haven't looked that closely but that seems logical , I don't think that anyone knows to be honest, I just feel now that we won't hear anything just now, so am hoping we hear something in the new year :P
