    That's weird! I'd be tempted to ring and ask what's going on. I'd also ring UCAS just to check that they haven't sent your applications off to the wrong places.
    There are occasional mix ups where people get rejected from a different course at a university that they applied to etc
    thanks for that. Ive checked on ucas track and nothing changed and Durham is not one of my choices anyway.. ill ring them up tommorow to be sure

    I had an interview with them last year. In terms of the format, it's quite informal. There are two interviewers, both of them were local doctors (although I think they can also be lecturers, med students etc) It lasted for about 20 mins or so.
    Before you go in, you can have a chat with some current medics and ex-BM6ers and they really put you at ease and give you a bit of an idea about the course.
    I'm not sure how much I can say about the interview questions, but I would say cover all bases. All the standard questions like 'why medicine' can be woven into your answers. I did get the impression that they wanted to get to know the real me, rather than the me that they have read about.
