    Be yourself, don't try and overthink the questions.
    Smile and keep talking (but not gibberish).
    Normal sort of interview stuff.

    Hey, so with the preferences form we didn't have to actively submit it or anything did we, just put them in order and then leave them?

    EDIT: Also, does anyone know how it works if you have interviews for 2 specialisms. If (and it's a BIG if) you do well enough in both do you actually get offers from both, or do you just get an offer from what you put down as your first preference? Not sure how it will work - though as I say, it is probably pretty unlikely I'll have to worry about it!!!

    wow the interviews are not that bad, I found the interviewers quite friendly. I wasted too much time revising the cardiac physiology (just a hint). good luck

    Hello everyone!

    I have become slightly obsessed with checking the status of my oriel interview and every single time it says "interview (booked)" (I AM LOSING MY MIND). I was just wondering, for those who have received an "interview (complete)" or "interview unsuccessful", how long did it take for it to change after your interview?

    Thank you and good luck everyone awaiting offers or still to have an interview!

    Has anyone actually had the interview unsuccessful status? And it took about 2 weeks after interview to change from interview (booked).

    Although I think they did loads in a big batch I think that when we found out some had been waiting a while, others a couple of days. I think so far, I've only seen one person say interview unsuccessful.

    Hey Nightwing
    Firstly yes with locations you just save and that is it.
    If you do well enough in both interviews you will get 2 offers, the first/second preference you did on application does not affect it. You can only Accept/Hold one of the offers.

    However, I believe if you accept an offer then offers will not come through for the second one. So you may want to "Hold" the first offer whilst you wait to see what the second specialism does.

    I don't think there is any point in us all refreshing oriel until 9th May onwards. Interview complete doesn't indicate you got a good ranking just that you did the minimum required so it's still up in the air as to whether we get offers. Good luck everyone.

    Yeah it would be great if we hear back earlier, last year the earlier interviews heard back first, but this year it seems they are quoting everyone 9th May. I don't want to wait that long

    That interview was complete torture! There is no way you could revise for the general science section. Also the cardiac station was way advance knowledge if I wasn't working as an ECG tech in a cardiology department I wouldn't have been able to answer the questions. Complete disaster! So gutted

    I haven't done it yet! Going today (although, I did do the interview in my dream, hoping it was a dream as it went awful!) - hope yours went well!
