    All candidates rotate through the same station once so yes you each get asked the same questions. The format is MMI, not group discussion. All the info you need is on their website:

    The MMI, in addition to forming an overall impression of the student, will assess in particular the following areas:
     Broad awareness of health and social issues
     Caring
     Clinical communication
     Clinical data handling
     Empathy & insight
     Ethical awareness
     Motivation / experiences informing your decision to pursue a medical career
     Responsibilities of a doctor
     Resilience
     Understanding of professionalism

    They have told you what they will be looking for so I would spend time thinking about these areas and how you might demonstrate these attributes - good luck.
    For the "clinical data handling", does that mean the half an hour maths test? Or is it another separate station where there is data handling

    They didn't in my interview last year, if so it's just on your work experience. R+R is scored as further process/step in inviting you for interview I believe.

    Oh great! Thank you, and congrats on your offer did you feel that the real thing was harder than the practice one given on the website?

    I didn't know there was a practice one last year, it's reasonable.

    I've rand again and the woman (who is lovely) said that she's been badgering the admissions tutor who still hasn't looked at some applications! She said she's going to speak to him and call me back but she said it's very unfair that we've had to wait so long, it feels as though we were forgotten about really. I hope after all of this trouble they give us interviews!!

    Oh wow! I was not expecting that!!
    But it is too late now anyways, isnt it? I mean, the last interview is on the 23th .. and the 2 weeks prior notice have passed already.
    Dont get me wrong, would be more than happy though to have less time to prepare if that means I get an interview
    Well, fingers crossed!
    For which course have you applied?
    Thank you for calling!

    Unfortunately I haven't been selected for interview. My degree doesn't have enough chemistry content in and I'm gutted as I turned down a job for this. I can't believe after all this waiting it's a rejection 😔

    Thank you means a lot, probably not. I can't take this rejection again to be honest

    Aww I don't remember did you apply as an undergrad as well as grad? Know how awful rejection feels, got straight rejections without interview as an undergrad

    If this was the 1st time you applied and you really were set on medicine, would really recommend taking a year out and getting a job as a health care assistant and applying again! I know how demoralising it can be hence me applying as a grad now having been rejected as an undergrad, and now I've got 2 interviews (fingers crossed for an offer). So if you really do have your heart set on it don't let med school rejection put you off (also you may think completely differently in a couple of weeks when you've had time for it to set in)
