    that sucks, I know how it feels. Do you have any feeling about what it was that caused them to reject you?

    P.S hope you get an offer somewhere else, good luck!
    I don't know at all why i got a rejection i thought it went fairly well and all the questions they asked i answered to a good standard, they even asked me some science question and i got that right.
    Thanks, you too

    Does UCL look at BMAT post-interview? Or are offers/rejections based on interview performance alone?

    Hey guys, not sure if you can answer this, but if you can - great.

    Do the interviewers ask specific science questions or is it like a conversation where they base their questions on what you say - so if you mention something to do with science then they can ask you a question on what you said.

    I think all of us without an interview will 100% be rejected if we don't hear back by Friday. I wish UCL would stop stringing us along each day

    It's can be either/both. Depends who the interviewers are on your panel and what kind of mood they are in.

    Hey, I know this may not sound helpful but the best thing to do is just be as calm as possible and be yourself. There isn't too much point trying to prepare for every kind of question cos it varies so much and those kind of questions you won't be expected to know a definitive answer anyway. They'd just want to make sure you're aware of relevant issues and can think and formulate an opinion. So I know it's really hard but try and relax the night before now, I'm sure you've prepared well and stressing won't help
