    Had my cardiac science interview on the 25th still waiting.......
    I'm sure it doesn't mean anything other than they're still making their way through everyone!

    You fill in a form and send a check for £10. You can email the nshcs and ask them for the link to the form.

    I actually didn't. They told me to send my request to the London Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education office. I sent off about a week before the end of March and got an email back to say that they 'do not believe that the Operations Department of Health Education South London holds the data that you have requested.'

    I'm not sure whether that was because it had been destroyed as it was almost a year since my interview (I think I read somewhere that they keep it for a year?) or because it never made it to the London office from the NSHCS in Birmingham for some reason.

    Sorry to hear that! You still did so well to even get to interview!

    Do you think you're going to try again next year?

    Oh no what was that for? Such a shame after all the effort put in, but it is so competitive to get to this stage so you've done really well by just doing that. Must have some great chunks of text to use in future applications too.

    I emailed the National School and they gave me further details on how to get my feedback last year.I sent them a cheque and they posted it out to me within a couple of weeks.

    It wasn't the most detailed of feedback last year but might be better this year as it was all submitted on iPads. In my opinion, it was very useful to have anyway - just in case there is something you can definitely work on, especially if you are determined to apply again the next year. You might even be surprised at how well you've scored in some areas.

    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
    Hey lavi, it's BME sarah!!

    Well done on getting interview (complete), I got one too, yeay!

    No I probably won't try again next year, I think I'll find a masters to do instead.

    I'm a Londoner! I prioritised my locations by CQC report scores for the hospitals, then by location depending on whether it's a big-ish city (I don't want to be somwhere really quiet!) and where I think I could see myself living. My top locations are nearly all Southern with London my top choices unless a Northern hospital has scored better! Cardiac: my top choices are London (G&T, Royal Brompton), Papworth and Liverpool. Vascular my top choices are London (Imperial, Kings), Bristol and Oxford.

    How about you?

    Sounds good! I'm northern, so I have Sheffield, Leeds and Yorkshire as my top ones (cardiac). I think I would be open to anywhere if I got a southern place, I'd be chuffed if I even got a place anywhere to be honest.
