    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.
    Totally this.

    Does anyone know if the BMAT unis (applied to Leeds and BSMS) tend to offer interviews later than non BMAT unis considering we only sat the exam less than a week ago? The waiting game is killing me!!

    I think they start offering interviews sometime after you get results, so most likely in early December, if they offer any December interviews

    Hey, I'm a hijabi as well! I bought 5 new scarves to match my interview outfit lol x
    (Original post by nomophobia)
    Hey! It's a relief to finally find someone lol, I don't know anyone in real life who's a hijabi going for interviews (sad I know) Haha, what are you wearing and are you gonna wear a black scarf or a different colour?

    Would you guys actually wear a hijab to interview? That's really good of you!

    I will wear a shirt and trousers. Would it be too much to wear a watch? I know you are girls but thought i'd ask as you seem like you know what you're on about.

    HAHA, I lol-ed, some employers think it's tacky my friend got into trouble by her boss because it looked disgusting - ikr what an ******* but anyway I think it's pretty but I wouldn't wear it just so I'm not being defiant lmao. xxx
    Just out of interest, do you wear it because of being a good Muslim or because your parents make you?

    Like do you wear it to school as well?

    Most of the Muslim girls in Aberdeen don't wear hijabs for that kinda thing. Tbh unless it's like prayer then hardly ever

    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?

    I wear it to school as well and it's purely for religious reasons. I like wearing it and only take it off at home. I know a lot of girls who take it off at times but that's purely their decision - I don't show my hair on social media either. It's a personal choice (my mum doesn't wear it) but my dad definitely encouraged it lol but his sisters don't really wear it either.
    I'm sure there must be some full-time hijabis in Aberdeen tho XD

    Plus the time I save not worrying about how my hair looks is worth it... LOL

    Also I wouldn't be being myself if I took it off, I'm proud of who I am and my religious identity. If I took it off it would be for other people and I don't work like that lol.

    Of course, I never take it off (besides at home) so I wouldn't be myself if I didn't wear it to the interview and you're meant to be yourself at interview.

    And nah, it definitely wouldn't be too much but don't wear an extremely flashy one of course

    Hahahah, and thanks although it's all in my head, nothings actually materialised yet lol. Hmm good idea, I'm thinking it'll be too cold for ballet type flats so probably lace up shoes.

    You can always figure it out when you get an interview lol. Aww, that's a shame. But are you from Scotland? Just asking cuz you've applied to only Scottish unis and I was gonna apply to Glasgow but my UKCAT wasn't good enough

    Ah right. That's really good of you though! Not many girls have the confidence to pull off something like that so nice one tbh.
    Plus it means I probably am more anxious about my hair as a guy than you are as a girl!!! XD

    Would an Armani watch be too flashy? I bought two of them in the Summer (Dad said they would look nice) but now I am thinking it may be over the top a wee bit.

    Tbh, that's the only questions I have about what to wear to interview. You girls really do obsess over fashion!!!

    Really? Most girls that I know who don't wear just don't want to wear it tbh, I've seen many girls at my college start wearing the hijab and others who stop wearing it, but I do see what you mean because a lot of them just want to fit in.
    And haha, dw, I stress about the fact that the point on my scarf isn't perfect XD

    Idk, depends on colour, size and whether you genuinely think it's too flashy - if you're leaning more towards the side of it being too flashy, it probably is. But also, wear it if you want to because interviewers aren't gonna look at your watch and be like "show off" haha.

    Haha, of course we do, i'd feel weird not stressing about what to wear haha
