    Pretty much like everything else being said on the thread, they were really vague i have no idea what they thought of my tbh! im so worried but all we can do is wait now
    The essay was not what I expected it to be, I felt really rushed but I managed to get something down in time, it was the first side and a few lines on the second side not too long... really dno what to expect anymore
    Do they specify how long the essay is meant t be?

    Why do you think they hated you? And how was it vague?

    I'm even more nervous now:-(

    To be honest i dont know, i think it was more me going wrong than them being cruel. I think if you know your stuff and convey it well they cant ask for more. I just kept talking about random unrelated things and one of them goes 'but thats unrelated'

    I'm so sorry. But you know what, you never know what they are looking for, and they may have found that in you. Hope for the best.

    Where else did you apply?

    I think I can relate haha the questions were really vague and I'm pretty sure a lot of the time I was waffling as vaguely as the questions posed to me! No point worrying about it now though!

    UCL, Nottingham (nothing so far from both these) And Durham! (Interviewed in November) Kings interview is coming up next week.

    Too bad they didn't offer you your choice at Newcastle. Did you accept Durham? What happens if you reject Durham, will they offer an interview at Newcastle?

    What is your UKCAT score?

    after your interview does kings only look at how well you performed in your interview to decide whether or not to give an offer or do they look at the whole application including the interview?

    I asked a med student this at a campus tour in summer and she seemed to think they just look at interview performance but she wasn't 100% sure
