    Don't worry, it should be fine. The essay will most likely be something to do with you as it is only used when the interview was not good enough. Just make sure that they can read it though lol.

    If you think about it though, isn't writing an essay less stressful than doing an actual interview as when you are writing an essay it's just you, a piece of paper and a pen, nothing else. No one judging you while writing it.

    Just get yourself relaxed before the interview, maybe get a hot drink. There's a starbucks just outside the London Bridge station, towards kings. It's opposite the McDonald's.

    Funnily enough when I got to my interview I realised I had to go to the toilet for a pee but the toilets near the admissions office were locked. Had to run to the other side of the building.

    Running around calmed me down though, or that could of just been because I was able to go to the toilet.

    One thing though, the taps are kinda crazy, took me awhile to realise how they worked...ended up getting water on my suit. Thank god for waterproof trousers.

    Yay! I still need to go through more NHS stuff and history of medicine in case they ask! PS questions are generally quite straight forward (usually anyway!)
    Ahh good luck! Oxbridge interviews are... an experience haha, I had one at Oxford last year - 4 interviews in 24 hours D:
    I have a SGUL interview three days after KCL and it's MMI so I'm scaredddd!

    It depends on your college, I had oxford interviews and I was asked to analyse graphs on oxygen dissociation, talk about lots of data and my favourite was given a skull and was asked, 'tell me about this animal'.
