    Thanks. I'll constantly be on my phone from now on

    I hope they are not going to increase the UKCAT cut-off, but I will probabaly get 0/15% for the UKCAT which is quite a lot.

    Let's wait and see who else gets interviews tomorrow.

    You must be quite chuffed- interview, high UKCAT, amazing grades. (I'm jealous)
    10:30 ma bad. read the email wrong

    Meh. I was really excited, but now I'm bricking about the amount of prep I should have done.

    mind, 15% is a somewhat small percentage out of the total so don't despair AND STOP WORRYING!

    I forgive you for your mistake
    Honestly, don't worry. You have 2 weeks for preparation. Just relax tonight, and start interview prep tomorrow. I am sure that if you do 45mins-1hour everyday, u will be absolutely fine!

    Ooh, there's a thread for this!

    I'm applying to Medicine at St Andrews and am growing more and more paranoid each day that nowhere wants me.
    Oh well.

    For your interview, just make sure you know why you want to do medicine (sounds silly but can be difficult to answer when put on the spot). Also very important - know in quite a bit of detail about the st andrews course and why you think it would suit you. They like to know that you have made a considered application and didn't just pick st andrews out of a hat. Maybe find out about some of the research conducted in st andrews etc. Be able to talk about your PS. You can't really practise for the science part of the interview. If you're ok with all of that then you should be fine. Good luck in your interview!

    I don't think you get an interview just based on your UKCAT result cause I got 710 for my UKCAT but was not offered an interview... I guess my grades were not good enough..

    When did you find out today?

    The isc Medical Interview is fantastic! And I'd recommend reading over previous interview threads, etc.

    Will you be coming down to Scotland for your interview then? Or are you an American applicant living in Scotland? :confused:

    Why do yoy say so?
    I am quite sure it isn't a wasted choice and it's early days yet. Afaik, from online forums, only 3 people have had interview invites so far. Obviously many more will also have invites.

    You UKCAT and grades seem excellent so I don't understand why you are worrying.

    Yup, found out today :banana: when I was checking my email for the millionth time this morning (this process has made me check my email like every 5 seconds )
    Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to do that!
    I'll be staying in London for all of December so I'm just going to take a train or a bus up there for the interview

    I am a first year Medical student in St Andrews, and believe me that you will have no regrets studying medicine at St Andrews. The facilities in the new medical building are second to none, and the teaching staff are excellent, as they make an effort to ensure that you understand what is being taught. After all, Medicine has been taught in St Andrews for exactly 600 years, and is the 3rd oldest university in the English speaking world. Good luck with your applications!

    I loved St Andrews when I attended the open day but my UKCAT might put a downer on things.
    Interviews seem to have started coming out...

    Hello guys!
    I'm new on the forum... I am an EU applicant and I've applied to St. Andrews but no sign yet... I'm pretty worried... I'm starting to think my PS is not good enough. Does anyone know any site where I could post my personal statement (and be sure i also get some ratings)? thanks

    No I'm a re-applicant. Also applied to Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. Applied to St. Andrews last year and didn't get an interview so I must have done something better this time round!
