    3 of my friends had interviews for medicine at birmingham and they said the interviewers pretty much ignored everything about medicine and focused mainly on extra-curricular stuff. If you get invited to an interview there, it pretty much means they want you, but they want to make sure you're socially able as well hence the interview. Of course this is for medicine, but im assuming their med and dentistry criteria are pretty much similar

    thank you for replying and I hope your friends get in to medical school and that you also get a place where you desire.
    So basically they want to check that my personality is suited to the course and that I'm normal?

    well thats a relief. how did your birmingham interview go? ive heard they give you some scenarios and see how you react to them. did they not even ask you "why dentistry?", "why dentistry and not medicine?" or "what do you think makes a good dentist?"?

    hey! I have an interview at Bristol on the 20th, i was wondering if you had the MMI format of an interview last year at Bristol? If so, could you tell me what kind of questions they ask? Or what each station focuses on? Cheers

    Neither.

    But if I had to choose one, the lilac one with light blue flowers.

    As long as you are smart is all that matters.

    I guess with you being Indian, you won't be wanting to fork out the ££$££ for a new one (especially if you're a Gujerati)

    if you have an interview then i think nothing will show on ucas track, i think it will only show if you have an offer or rejection. well done and good luck for the dundee interview, i have mine on the 06/02/11
