    Could the questions for the general science section be anything from any of the specialism choices I.e genetics, ethical questions on IVF some medical physics etc?

    I'm going for the cardiology interview on Tuesday anyone else going to be there? I'm absolutely bricking it! I'm dreading the general science section. What's everyone revising for that?
    I spoke to someone who took the interview and she said that it's really hard to 'revise' for the general science interview, but the most important thing to do is even if you have no clue to the answer of the question, you offer a few ideas and if possible say how you would go about testing an idea.
    I'm bricking it too, but trying to stay positive!
    Good luck!

    Hi, did you get 'interview complete' for histo?
    Yes I did! If it means I passed the interview which is what people are saying then I can't quite believe it! Don't want to get my hopes up though!
    How about you?

    I assume 4 per group, so 12? That's a guess though

    Just wondering if anyone knows what the average interview score is to be on reserve/offer i.e. previous years? I'm guessing it has to be pretty high? Thanks!

    I believe the consensus last year was that around 40/50 upwards got an offer, though it varied between specialisms obviously. I think for some that had loads of places e.g. med phys that people managed to get offers with ~35.

    4 stations, 2 interviewers per station, each scores you out of 5 = max of 40 from the stations.
    Then again for communication, each person scores you out of 5 = max 40, this gets divided by 4 to give you average communication mark out of 10.

    I thought it was max score of 80 - 40 for the four stations and 40 for communication?
