    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!
    Yeah I believe that too! But this is my third and final time applying to Med so here's hoping this is the year! Sorry to hear about your rejections. Where else did you apply to?

    Yep, I'm international..im assuming we're the only two on this thread?? Interview was alright, they asked me 12-13 questions too, but similar to all of you my answers were long! They did try to challenge my opinions at times, but I stuck by what I said! The interview wasn't too difficult in particular, just long and they did ask me loads about my work experience and what I had learnt! Some stuff about NHS, hope my answers were convincing because I am not too familiar with the NHS having never lived in UK!

    yeah the person that asked me the NHS question, didnt know I was international I think it was the student..but the other two interviewers asked me stuff abt working in an entirely private healthcare setting like in my country and I believed I tackled that pretty well!

    Yeah I got asked where I would fund in the NHS as they said I've been promoted to the position of Health Minister. Move aside Andrew Lainsley.

    yeah it's a good question if you know what you're talking about but I am not that familiar with the NHS, since I am intl applicant. I tried to learn as much as I could but unfortunately, during the stress of interview, you can only remember so much. thankfully they only asked me about my country's system and I answered those well (hopefully).

    Yeah I understand...its hard to learn something under pressure especially a healthcare system you aren't familiar with! I met a southafrican student who got an offer, she got some NHS questions but she simply said my knowledge of the NHS is quite limited but this is what I know..so I am guessing they understand that we haven't been exposed to such a system! Atleast in canada, you guys have some sort of public healthcare system, in Tanzania we don't have nothing! If you are poor you die, its as cruel as that!
