    Not many people have 6 interviews for med school in their lives... you must have something golden in your personal statement ) better luck for this year.

    don't know my score. ukcat was 682.5. think I did ok but my brain was all over the place o possibly was terrible! wish I'd spent longer on the q they put on website. I had 3 interviews in one week so spread myself too thin.
    So do they actually ask some of the questions published on the website? Also does the sample questions actually help a lot? I've been through them, but just want to make sure it is actually worth it. Thanks!

    Hey. To answer your question, as far as I know they don't ask the exact questions published on the site (they didn't on my interview day, but this may depend on what they choose on the day). But I definitely thought the questions on the site were useful and worth having a quick look at. Best of luck!

    I had my interview on the first interview date and haven't heard anything but they said we wouldn't until the end of February so i'm guessing they will let everyone know about offers / rejections around then

    they score our personal statement out of 50 our ukcat out of 10 then give interviews to the top 600 scorers. they then score our interview out of 50 to give us all a score out of 110, then order us in order of best to worst and make offers to the 290 top scorers....because of this method they can't announce who has got in until they have interviewed all 600 interviewees and the last interview date is 29th january.
    they promised to have replied to everyone by end of feb at the latest so any time between 30th jan and 28th feb is a possibility, but defo not before

    Hey,

    I was just looking through their sample questions and one of them is

    A friend tells you he feels bad because his family has always cheated to obtain extra benefits. How would you respond?
    Benefit scams are obviously illegal but would the interviewers expect you to say you'd report them if you'd exhausted all alternatives? Because I really can't imagine doing that... What if it was a friend stealing supplies from a hospital, obviously you'd have to report them then but in this situation?

    Could do with some help, thanks!

    I'd tell friend that he is not to blame for what his family do and that he should encourage them to stop. think you could also talk about confidentiality but say you would have to report it if they/he didn't as drs can't ignore people breaking the law. though you aren't a dr, you're meant to behave as if you are.
    My grandad was a policeman and he refused to go to any parties as every time he went to one he either saw people taking drugs or with pirate dvds/ booze. he had to report it o r he could lose his job but he'd warn them he was about to and then leave. he lost a lot of friends!
