    Can you think of any possibility why? Did you put anything dodgy on your personal statement? I know a boy who was rejected from everywhere without interview because he talked about previously had epilepsy in his personal statement. He hasn't had a fit in a really long time, but apparently, all his grades, everything was spot on, so that's the only reason why he could have been rejected. you're an international applicant- where are you from?
    If they did reject him for that reason, then they broke the law.

    It's very unlikely this was not the reason for the rejection. Admissions tutors realise that seizures can be controlled for many people with epilepsy (especially if he was using the past tense in his PS) and it wouldn't have affected work or study significantly. Even if there was the potential for it affecting him, then that's exactly what Occupational Health are there for. To discuss whether a person is fit enough for the role and to provide any appropriate support.

    So even if he still has seizures I don't think it would have been an issue. I know several people who are medical students or current doctors who have epilepsy.

    Hello! I was offered an interview in Singapore (I'm an international student) and I'm very very excited indeed.

    I was wondering: How much will the interview revolve around my personal statement? I know Imperial and Cardiff kick things off with the personal statement and have the entire interview structured around what you've written. Will Barts do the same?

    Thanks!

    Surely there must be an answer for this? Help a brother out!
    Hey! I don't think they have certain interview dates...got this off the website: 'All our interviews take place in January and February. We start inviting selected candidates to interview at the beginning of January through to February each year. GEP MB BS 4-year programme runs the assessment centre in February of each year.' Hope this helps!

    ahh congrats!! when is your interview? did they send you an ethical article with the interview invite? I think its primarily based on the personal statement and article...but it may be different this year! didn't they mention the format and stuff of the interview with the invite?

    Hey guys. Last year Barts started interviewing around early Feb. All graduates were interviewed on the first couple of days. I had two weeks notice and I am pretty sure everyone else did too. Good luck!
