    Hiya, I've got an interview in January for the A100 course. I was just wondering whether the format of the interview is panel or MMI? It doesn't directly state one or the other in the letter, just that it's 20 minutes long with preliminary tasks.
    I'm pretty certain it's panel

    Was wondering whether anyone who had an interview around the 12th has heard anything? Finding myself checking everything three or four times a day, even though I know the offices are shut - I think it's getting a bit excessive! Hope I'm not the only one!

    I'm also an Irish applicant. I've heard nothing yet; probably due to my "low" UKCAT of 742.5

    I dont think they really care about that ... So you shouldnt worry..... Well technically u can put that down on ucas where they ask what have you done pre university for preparation... But this day and age this is very unlikely to affect your chances ... All Unis know it isnt possible for people to attend these as everyone also have a life / also geographical and other issues lol lol lol i hope i have alleviated any stress you have ;-)

    I had two interviewers (I can't remember for the life of me their names, I was in panic mode/autopilot!) and I found it so hard to tell how it went. I only didn't know the answer to one of the questions so I made an educated guess (I think I told them that). I found that one interviewer enjoyed saying 'I raised an eyebrow when...' and did exactly that all through the interview which was a bit off-putting. The other seemed nicer though and I felt a bit more at ease with them. Anyway, I say all that to basically say that I don't know how it went... And look forward to hearing soon!!

    I had a man and a younger woman as interviewers (I can't remember for the life of me their names, I was in panic mode/autopilot!) and I found it so hard to tell how it went. I only didn't know the answer to one of the questions so I made an educated guess (I think I told them that) but that was mainly because the questions revolved around my PS. I found the man enjoyed saying 'I raised an eyebrow when...' and did exactly that all through the interview which was a bit off-putting. The woman seemed nicer though and I felt a bit more at ease with her. Anyway, I say all that to basically say that I don't know how it went... And look forward to hearing soon - It's reached the point where I don't really mind what the outcome is! How do you feel yours was?
    I think I had the same interviewers, I reaaly don't know how mine went, I think I could have done so much better than I did though! I think ive been over thinking my answers way too much, I just wanna hear back from them asap. I hope they dont make us wait longer than 2nd jan

    I had those interviewers! The man made me feel so uncomfortable.

    Not necessarily ...they have given out offers / rejections/ put u on a waiting list after 3 weeks ... One of my friends heard back after a month and a half first it was waiting list then they called in the middle of exams .. Well the minute it finished to give an offer ... But they do grt back within 3 weeks usually however all December interview decisions are hindered by the holiday period so it can and probably will take longer than 3 weeks .. Best thing to do is not think about it ...relax and kick back .... ( says he who has chewed all his nails off lol ... Not literally ofcourse ).

    Hi, I received an interview date via the portal and was asked to confirm acceptance, but when I pressed the submit button nothing seemed to happen. Should I be able to see a confirmation or update somewhere?

    I know, I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt a bit uneasy with them, we just can't tell what they're thinking though! I did feel like I left the interview without them knowing much more about me than when I went in although I'm sure they could read me like a book... There were so many things that I wanted to say that I didn't get the chance to. I managed to think of some amazing answers... On the train home :/ Oh well, we can only wait now! And yes, it would be nice to start the term again with a clearer idea of where we stand although I haven't heard anything from anywhere else which is a bit worrying. Trying to convince myself that no news is good news... for now.

    I had the same problem, emailed them and they said it had gone through. Did the selecty buttony thing just go grey? If so, it should be fine and should have gone through. If you're still worried just email them and they'll tell you once they're back in the office.

    Thanks, it did go grey and I will email them as you suggest.
