    I was wondering if anyone knows if the interviewers have access to the personal statement?

    Yes, they even ask questions based on what you've said in your personal statement.

    Hey, I'm a first year at glasgow and last year the interviewers had no access to any personal statement, so I dont see why it would have changed this year. They don't ask you questions on it because its a completely blind process, the interviewers don't know anything about you and haven't seen your portfolio either, its up to you to tell them as much as you can good luck xx

    thanks, so will they ask questions like 'what have u done to show this' etc or is it only the portfolio they care about what you have done and the interview is just to see that you are confidant etc?

    It's likely you'll be asked things like why dentistry, what skills does every dentist need, who makes up the dental team etc. Some people got asked about the various components of teeth and to identify some teeth.
    They'll ask about manual dexterity almost definately, how you can show teamwork, how you can show your independant, stuff like that.
    Also, know about plaque! That came up last year and a few people didn't know. x

    no they dont see the statement or portfolio, so consider all the stuff you wrote in both. Be up to date on major political things especially funding - they want to see you have a general knowledge.

    Understand how scottish dentistry is funded, know if the water supplies in scotland and England are fluoridated.

    Bring evidence or photos of things confirming your manual dexterity.
