    I'm not too sure if that's a very valid reason... cause everyone else will also be busy with classes and exam prep. All the best nonetheless!
    To clarify, they asked me for preference of Feb or Mar. I choose Mar for said reasons but did not tell them reasons as none were asked for. I guess my question was would it have been beneficial to have just said either was fine rather than appear picky. Maybe I should stop being paranoid about this and just prep for the interview. just ordered 2 prep books
    Thanks for reply

    Provided u meet both academic and UKCAT criteria you'll have an interview. Non academic stuff isn't looked at to determine who comes for interview!
    I'm still waiting and thy told me the last day is in March I think

    Nah, I think you shouldn't worry too much. I don't think it really matters. Good luck for your interview!

    MMI's are bliss Because you can mess up in one station but still pull it back in the others, plus most of interviewers know nothing about your grades or PS so that allows everyone to be judged fairly.

    These competences?

    Academic ability and intellect
    Empathy
    Initiative and resilience
    Communication skills
    Organisation and problem solving
    Team work
    Insight and integrity
    Effective learning style

    Hmmmm they assessed most of them informally, in the sense that they didn't have a specific station for most of them. For example communication skills is tested in every single station but on the other hand Empathy does have it's own station (Role play).

    I just wrote this long email about the interview and prep, I'll PM you that and anyone else who wants it.

    Hey ! Could you PM me the email too please
    Thank you very much

    Hello to the people who have already done their interview.

    I got my invite to interview a while ago at the end of November, but I've only just begun to research travel journeys.
    My interview is on the 10th of Feb and my parents have a car, so they could drive us, but we've already assumed that parking will be a nightmare.
    I've checked train tickets and they're around £352 for two adults.
    Unfortunately I was told to be at St G's by 10.40 and I live right by Birmingham, so I'm making quite a journey to get there.

    Can anyone who's been to the interview let me know what they did for travel, especially if they traveled from afar like me? Also any advice on car parking would be especially helpful, as this is unfortunately looking to be my best best for travel options.

    Thank you

    I'm from just outside birmingham too best option is to get the flexible London ticket from chiltern railways (means you have to get there after half 10ish and leave before 4:30 or after 7) which is about £30 including return and tube travel and then you get 2 tubes from marylebone to tooting broadway. From marylebone to elephant and castle (poss jubilee can't remember) to tooting broadway via Northern line.

    Edit: sorry just saw u have morning interview - if possible it might be worth doing this still but stopping the night before instead of travelling down the morning of. Might work out cheaper if you're able to.

    I wonder what proportion of offers have already been given out - if there's any science to it or it depends on the batch.

    how do train tickets cost that much, unless you mean £35 but if you get 7am train you should make it to Euston by 9am and then tube to St George's costs like £4
