    Can anyone remember the question about treating someone and its effect on society (the one most people did)

    It would help a lot if you could post the title, and the main points you made for each side of the argument

    If anyone could help, it's appreciated firstly.
    Are the interviews very scientific based? Or are they more of a generic panel based interview?

    I know people aren't inclined to be helpful, but since there isn't competition between places [if you get an interview, there is a place for you] I'd appreciate any guidance....

    I would say that mine was rather balanced, i had some science and a fair bit about my ps but then again i had only two interviewers. Nothing v hard science wise though, simple GCSE/AS knowledge in my case

    The interviews at UCL have no repeating structure. The interviewers can ask you whatever they like. It'd be a good idea to be familiar with all the stuff you have written down though as a first.

    How do you know that though?
    Because I've had an interview and we all spoke about our interviews before and after I went in.

    I dont know, it was going fine, although a bit waffly and i tripped over my words once or twice because i was so nervous, but then i got asked to name a moment in the book i mentioned in my PS that affected me. I have read it, and I really enjoyed it, but I was so nervous I had a mind blank and ended up saying something that sounded very made up, even though it may kindoff be true. The book was 'Do No Harm' by Henry Marsh and I said that it was good to see him go to Poland (its actually Ukraine) and helped develop surgery, then came back 10 years later and saw how much progress had been made.

    Im kicking myself because the moment I came out and the nerves were gone I could think of so many specific moments from the book I said. Now they will think I lied about reading the book on my PS...

    Nerves is just one of those things - it's human and they will expect and hope you are somewhat nervous. They will try and look past this, I'm sure. It would be harsh to mark you down for it unless it significantly impacted upon your performance, which by your summary I don't think it did.

    That's only one part of the interview - they might not even have read the book haha. And everyone is bound to be a little nervous at least.

    Stay hopeful. Good luck
