    In same position! Got an interview from Birmingham but Bristol is my second choice (well technically first as Cambridge is basically out unless a miracle occurs when they mark my BMAT). Havnt heard anything back from Bristol yet (no email since the we have started considering your application one) and am really worried

    My other choice is Edinburgh which I really love too but I know I won't hear back from them until next year
    Maybe they're just saving the best till last? 😉

    Hey no worries, this is a big deal and panicking is normal. Just try to think straight, the people interviewing you are people as well, they are not going to reject you for wearing a coat to the interview.

    Its true though! Throughout this process you will worry about silly little things, and the fact is unless you epically screw up at interview then you will be absolutely fine. Im 100% sure the admissions tutor will not be looking at everyones shoe colour and rejecting everyone wearing brown shoes...

    Its all about logic, just go dressed smart, give it your best shot and make sure you explain everything you say. if you are stuck or confused ask for the question to be repeated or simply say you dont know and try to divert the topic in your favour somehow.

    That is very true - especially as I was contemplating which colour headscarf to wear which is silly, I'll just match it to the dress.

    Thank you for the tips, you've been really helpful I'll keep all that in mind for my interview (when I get one)

    Hahaha 'sabr fam' Mate, that had me on the ground!!!

    Where did you end up applying? Was it Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glesga if I am right?

    I don't know if I ended up telling you but mine was Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Bristol. Bristol I applied to for some interview practice. Will reject it even if I do get the offer. Also heard that Scottish universities look really highly on you if you did well in S6 and are a gap year applicant!

    But I would be happy to go to Aberdeen, Dundee or Edinburgh!

    Hope the catching up is going well btw
    Yeah I applied to those unis and catching up is goin alright, wby? Chemistry is my hardest subject!

    Doesn't bother me, but apparently you're not allowed to wear it even at McDonalds for hygiene reasons. So I guess if you're wanting to be a dentist/doctor then you need to have a strong hygiene game... I could be wrong x

    BUT YES FINALLY someone who gets it haha

    Me neither (and same lol). Oooh, that sounds really stylish haha. Hmm, maroon or lilac I would go with, but depends on whichever one you either feel more comfortable wearing or whichever one suits you more. I haven't even bought anything yet lmao, I've been looking around but I'm super short and petite sections don't really sell smart clothes (sigh) but I imagined a black skirt/dress with a blazer and I might dare to wear a brightly coloured scarf but idk. What kind of shoes are you wearing?

    No nail varnish as a doctor so no nail varnish to interviews is probably the best way. especially if its not a clear or neutral colour.

    I also think the same about makeup, a bit of mascara, some concealer etc. like make yourself look more awake and enhance your outfit, but eyeshadow, contouring, crazy winged eyeliner is a bit OTT for a medical school interview, your not in a fashion parade.
