    can people see their predicted grades on ucas track?
    You can't see it on UCAS track. However, if you want to see it, you can request it. It costs £10. Just call UCAS and ask what the process is.

    Or just ask your teachers and they may tell you for free.

    I guess so I just feel anxious because I haven't heard anything yet and I got a score of 9.0. My friend got 8.5 and scored an Interview for Bham. Bham is my first choice and it would mean everything to me to get in. But well done to everyone who has I terviews so far and fingers crossed for the rest of us

    Hey hey no I think you've misinterpreted - it's just good to make sure in these kinds of threads because people do often troll? Like it wasn't supposed to be an offensive thing, I just wanted to check because trolling happens all the time. Sorry if it came over wrongly, I'm not one of those 'there's always one' - I swear
    when do they reply for an interview?? If you don't mind me asking, when did you submit your application?

    Try not to worry, you are obviously in a strong position for an interview here, just be aware that often interviews are handed out randomly to everyone who exceeds the required score for an interview, this ensures the process is fair and has no bias (i.e. people with the maximum score all being interviewed first, when actually everyone with scores above the required score is entitled to a fair chance at an interview).

    Try to keep calm and the best thing is to try and distract yourself. This process is long and honestly these early interviews are just that, early, you have a lot of time where you could get interview offers, you just have to sit tight.

    I wish you all the best.

    medinterview.com is the 'best' apparently, like the owner posts the personal messages she gets saying thanks from those participants who get in (on insta) but thats the opinion of someone i know, and someone else might have found it useless
    But it is quite expensive, so check it out if u wanna

    Well i do know that theyre the most popular, and have sold out for the first 3months, so that clearly speaks volumes, but then thats probs cuz they have the most money to advertise, and candidates who dont put their own effort in decide to go to the most renown course which happens to be that one. your money tho, dont let me influence you, do em all if u wanna. also, if ur applying to imperial, theres one called futuredoctors, ran by imperial college students

    Do you think its acceptable/doesn't cause any disadvantage to wear a burgundy shirt with a tie and a tweed jacket rather than the white shirt and tie combo (don't own a blazer/suit yet)

    For an interview? I think that would be acceptable, as long as it looks smart
