Lucy did your interviewers push you really hard to answer qs?
I think so - I ended at the correct answer (through pushing and hinting) to pretty much every question they asked minus the 'logical thinking' one (where they said that all my ideas were wrong but it didn't matter because they just wanted to see the way I think - I love those type of questions !). I think in two cases they outright told me the answer and even when I said "Sorry, I don't know." they were always "No reason for you to say sorry, you may not have come across it yet in biology/chemistry." - So nice !

All my interviewers were really lovely (although some were very scary) and were patient if I got it wrong/helped me if I was going round in circles.

I was so pissed off after the **** I was asked in my interviews. I knew so much biology, but for some reason I was only asked on my weakest areas. I was asked how to do a microarray, about southen blotting, hybrid DNA strands, links between genetics and intelligence, differing action between steroids and hormones, how many genes are on Y, will Y ever become extinct, how chromosomes pair in prophase 1, communication between cells, how female hormones play an important role in regulation of sperm cell development in the male, and a bunch of other stuff....
All you medical students are making me feel dumb

The euthanasia one was really good coz he just asked me to argue out both sides as a barrister..no need to give opinion
Yeah, I really enjoyed that question because I had a lot to say. Strangely, I spent so much time arguing for it (which isn't what I personally believe in), and not against it. He cut me off before I could say anymore, but it was a good kind of cutting off "that's good, discussing patient's rights... mm hmm... [scribbling on his pad]".

That sounds strange. I would have thought it would change if it was folded such that the faces touched.

Well, I'm afraid I can't beat that one But what really matter is whether you were at ease with the whole thing. If you could laugh it off, it shows you're not afraid to make mistakes so it's a good thing still.
lol, didn't think you'd be able to ! I think it's really important for applicants to remain as calm as possible - I was verging on carelessness/jumping to the wrong conclusions too quickly when I was nervous. It's pretty much how Oxford describe it in this booklet they sent me - that applicants need to find a balance between hardly daring to say anything (for fear of saying something silly) and answering questions without thinking carefully. The latter is what happened with respect to that blood question !

Really, because I wonder who else thinks so.
Having said that I have faith in the Royal Mail, that they'll deliver post promptly tomorrow morning.

Perhaps it's to do with the globular nature of an enzyme.
