Hiya!

I was wondering if you can reminisce back to your interview :eek3: Those stressful days.

What were you asked? Did you stutter and ooh and ahh once or twice throughout the interview before you settled? What UNI were you being interviewed for? How nice were the interviewers?


Thanks

i heard a story about a UCL applicant putting his feet up on the table once at interview, and answering only what he wanted to what an idiot!

In all seriousness, there's a wiki page on what MIGHT be asked, us telling you isn't going to help you

Glasgow were really scary-like being interviewed in a prison. I remember feeling well awkward in my shoes but really keen to get to uni after them. They asked me ALL the standard ones (why medicine etc) and I remember having to really fake thinking about them before I boshed out my canned answers. Also asked me on my new scientist reading where I *********** an answer to a stem cell question.

BL interview, much nicer, turned up 15 mins late but they still interviewed me! I was much more chilled out, I had an offer from Glasgow and I applied thinking I wouldn't get any. Remember this 3rd year (now qualified) stretched out, head resting on cocked arm looking tremendously bored asking me what I would add to the union.

Yeah like everyone says, Barts was the most relaxed interview with 2 guys, 1 who seemed to think his own experiences were more conversation-worthy than my answers . But I do remember not being asked "why medicine?" but they did ask "why Barts?" which is slightly similar but not very.

Kings: I remember how everyone told me I'd be fine because "there's a coffee table between you and the interviewers that's how relaxed it is!" but that coffee table makes no difference when there's 3 stern face looking at you and some interview standards person sitting at the side! That one was full of stuttering, they ask about w/e and one particular patient you remember from your w/e.

St. Georges: Panel of 3, one nice guy, one guy who looks like his family just died and one student. They asked everything they told me they'd ask in the pack they sent prior to the interview.

Barts Was definatly the best one. They even started asking about what Medical Dramas did I watch.
Stuttered and stammered so much through that interview.. Maybe they thought I had a speech impediment Haha

Sorry to be asking this, but your signature says you're doing Mechanical Engineering, change of heart?

Curiosity gets the better of me sometimes :o:
