    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
    You could get a train to London Euston then take the Northern (not too sure if it's the Northern) to Tooting Broadway which is near SGUL...the journey will probably be just over 2 hours (maybe 2 and a half?) so you can plan accordingly. As for buying the tickets, you can get cheaper tickets through trainline and you should also try to buy the tickets well in advance. In terms of parking if you use Parkopedia you can find out about parking nearby SGUL including prices, distance from uni etc.

    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 there, could you PM me please? This would be much appreciated! Thank you!

    I'm from nearby Birmingham and I went down to London a couple days earlier! Make sure you give yourself ample time to get to George's, the uni isn't too hard to find from the train station. I took the tube, found it to be alright I suppose if your parents do drive you then parking may not be that big of an issue...? Cause the hospital's next door so there will be parking...

    Hi- congratulations! What documents exactly do they need? I got an invite a while back and they said to collect headed letters from your work experiences. But now I have an email saying to fill in a form with 5 contacts of your most recent work experiences? Is this instead of the headed letters?
