    Plus around 350 offers going out, which is the number that counts really, not the number of places.

    Thanks guys! That sounds very good then if you make it to the interview stage, 350 out of the 500 get offers 70% chance then I guess Has anyone received a conditional yet, as opposed to an unconditional? I'd be interested to know what kind of conditions they set? Or even if anyone got a conditional from a previous year?

    I can help you with the basic structure etc...

    When the time starts you get taken to a small room with the other people in your group to read the given article. You get about 10 minutes or so (which is ample time).

    Then you get taken into the interview rooms where they ask you questions for about 15-20 minutes. The time flies btw. The questions are pretty much what the website says: The St Andrews course, Previous experience (so pretty general average questions), and Ability to communicate tested on with the article. The article questions themselves are more of a problem-solving nature, and that's the area where you are allowed to shine (or fail dramatically ) because it allows the biggest scope in terms of you gearing the topics to suit your own interests.

    Afterwards you get a choice to ask questions and then a tour of the new medical shiny school :teeth: (which is awesome). Though, if like me you'd be too busy crying/shaking to really pay attention.

    Thanks! Not to panic anyone but some people in my school got the email a couple of days ago for an interview for the 2nd of march. So I'm guessing there's two more batches of interviews to be given?

    Edit: Just looked back at some of the posts where people have been told about interviews for the 9th of march, so I'm guessing 1 more batch to be given out?

    They seem to be giving out dates in a random manner, perhaps to gear the article we get given to each group (ie. graduates and school-leavers) perhaps? Although I think theres still a chance of getting an interview up until the 4th March as they normally give at least 2 weeks notice.

    on the medical stalking thread i remember seeing a couple of offers, but that'll probably just be the reeeally outstanding people who were definately going to get an offer. you'll probably hear once theyve interviewed everyone else i guess?

    Lets hope we all hear some good news then ! 70 % chance of an offer which is very good when comparing to other unis ( 500 applicant for 350 offers) .

    hey.... I don't wanna sound suspicious or something, but how do you guys know for sure they give out 350 offers? Is there any official information or did anyone find this out from a reliable source? Sorry but it really seems too good to be true !
