    On the position by location table on the main STP website, what does the Travel column mean? For St George's it also states Barts etc. Can anyone explain?
    The wait is killing me haha
    I took that to mean that there is rotation/placement between those hospitals. It mentions Imperial Charring Cross as well etc doesn't it?

    That's for biochem right? St George's holds the purse strings but those 4 trusts are the 4 London locations for trainees (St George's, King's, Imperial and Barts).

    Yep for Biochem. Thats what I thought it meant but wanted to double check! Hopefully the fact that location choices have opened again won't delay any answers

    I was counting the awkwardness, and interviewers prompting me was making feel like everything I was saying was just wrong I think the specialism one was my worst, not what I was expecting at all. Oh well it was my first attempt, I'm not optimistic

    Just got the 'interview completed' update

    Uhm no actually I thought 'Interview complete' just means we didn't fail any stations but might still not have scored high enough for an offer. "Interview unsuccessful' would have meant no hope left

    Interview complete for cardiac science. Not too optimistic though 😁. Did anyone get unsuccessful ones? Also any respiratory people heard back? Mine still says interview booked for that

    I just spoke with them and it seems that interview complete at this stage just means that we attented the interview - if it doesn't change after the offers are made, then it means to wait- the lady said that irrespective of the rankings, everyone should have this status unless they failed one stations-

    Ah right. I never knew that.

    It does seem like there seems to be drives to get girls interested in subjects like physics and maths, rightly so if they tend to be dominated by boys. But I kind of feel the same should be done for boys with Biology if that is the case. Anyway, this is all pretty irrelevant for us at the moment!!
    Even the biological sciences (I'm an academic neuroscience researcher) are dominated by men in the upper echelons. The drop off of female scientists as you progress up the pay scales is astonishing.

    Wow, was just looking at last years thread (as you can see I'm really starting to obsess over this now!!!!!). It looks like you needed an interview score of at least 40 to get on, I think some with more places went a little lower, but they were definitely up near the 40 mark! That is like every interviewer giving you a 4 at each station, I mean I just can't see how that is possible, at least not for me anyway!!! Will try and remain positive until I get results, but just made me realise just how difficult it is to get on!!!
    I think you,'re forgetting about the communication score. The overall score is out of 80 so a 40 is like every interviewer giving you 2.5 for every aspect of scoring (i think).

    Someone said they add up the communication and divide it by 4, so the communication bit is worth 10 marks not 40 :/

    I thought last year was by far the worst interview I've ever had in my life and still scraped a 34 so 40 isn't unachievable!

    No, every interviewer gives a communication score out of 5. With 8 interviewers (2 for each station) you would get a total of 40 marks for communication

    You get this as total score but then it is divided by 4 so that communication is a max of 10 marks, giving 50 in total. I had an interview last year and that is the way it worked then, I requested the feedback so got the notes/total etc. It might have been that communication was worth more in the past.

    Either way it doesn't make much difference to us at the moment, just got to sit back and wait out the last few days the best we can! I am not coping well with the wait!

    This guys has it right. They all score you on communication but that then gets averaged to give you a maximum of 10 then 10 from each station, so max score is 50!
