    Had an interview at BSMS on 4th Feb. Emailed admissions people and they said no one from that day will hear before March 14th because they have an admissions day where they decide. Nice to know won't be till then so don't keep checking all the time. I have an offer from Bristol and King's already and an interview at Peninsula next week. Good luck to everyone!
    Woow!! great, i got an offer at bristol aswell...

    This surprises me! I got the why med and why here questions, along with many other expected questions.

    well 7 different teams so opportunity for 7 different sets of questions. also, they dont have set questions to ask so its highly variable between candidates and days.

    Yeah, I'd expect some variability, but you'd think they'd generally use the same technique in their interviewing to make it fairer to all candidates. This would suggest similar questions.

    perhaps, but I am a graduate applicant and everyone else in my group was also a graduate applicant (although I was the only intl) so I guess they have a specialized team interviewing graduates. I think it might be pretty evident from a graduate applicant why they want to do medicine (at least from mine it is pretty clear) so they decided to go straight to business instead of wasting time on the questions people often give 100% prepared answers to anyways.

    hey guys, Here I am in a dilema. I had an C in English Language, I realise that a lot of med school, even BSMS require a min of a B at eng GCSE. However in thei website and I had also emailed them, they have stated that "a B in English or equivalent", and luckily I had an A in Eng Lit. (1) Will is that A in eng lit an equivalent for that requirement? Also I did email them and they have said that eng lit is 'Fine to meet their requirement'. (2) I am also planning to do english IGCSE course this year and sit the exam in June 2013 where I will get my result in august time. So I will not have done the course when I apply this year. So is there a 'Space' on the form where i can tell them that i am also doing the IGCSE?, will that help in my application. My other GCSEs were 5A* 5A 1B. doing heaps of Work xp and Volunteering. Sorry for my Long issue. please help me out. thanks

    Its always hard to tell if some of the answers were what they were looking for. I suppose its never going to be perfect, there's a few things I could have added when I think about it now but I hope I've done enough! The waiting is the toughest part, I dont have replies from anywhere I've applied to yet. I just want to now either way now!

    Don't worry! I believe in fate and I say that whatever happens, it will happen for a reason..so dont worry! I have 3 rejections, 2 pre-interview and 1 post so this is basically my only hope! I'm not worried though, if its meant to be it will be!
