    No - that's the norm. Anyone who scores full marks at interview (rare) or is terrible gets a decision within around a week. For everyone else they make decisions at the end of March.
    Thanks Fluffy! I was getting worried for a sec.

    My interview was somewhat weird actually: two people on the panel, one pharmacologist and one 3rd year medic (I was expecting 3 people!).

    We chatted about the ancient video for a bit, then got asked some questions pertaining to that which I wrote on my PS.

    Then the pharamocologist goes, "Right, you're a doctor/consultant in a room with a patient and some medical students. One medical student says something that upsets the patient. What would you do?"

    That question was alright, then I got asked tell me a time when you worked as part of a team (something along those lines). I cited my time in YMCA Day Camps.

    Come to think of it, both people on the panel were unimaginably nice. A bit too nice actually!

    I just recently had the wierdest interview at Barts,

    Firstly i was intervied by two not three (one pharmacologist, the other a medic student) and they asked me some very basic questions i.e why barts, what qualities do you have? (is that a gud sign) I am really baffed, i was expecting more challenging questions, oh yeh one scenario:

    you're a consultant, and u are taking sum medical students on a ward round. and then One of the medical students says something that upsets the patient. What would you do?

    Did any1 feel that they had a wierd interview? That it was suprisingly easy (no medical ethics, no current issues, nothing realted to science) just plain personality question?

    For those of you who do not read admissions forum (and why not???!!! ):

    (Original post by admissions assistant @ BL)
    I have explained this in a previous thread but here we go again. If you were interviewed ages ago and have not heard anything, you will only hear in March. Offers are made to those candidates who score top marks at interview so someone could have been interviewed 2 weeks ago may have an offer and that's because they scored top marks. Everyone else who does not hear within a few weeks will only hear in March. It will not be the beginning of March but nearer the end.

    I apologise for the answerphone being on and emails not answered, we are currently only 2 staff at the moment and are out at interviews a few days out of the week.

    If you have specific questions that are not answered above, please feel free to pm me.

    No - BL seems to always be the standard offer.

    I know a handful of people who were accepted after getting less than their offer but with mitigating circumstances, but I do not know anyone who got less than the standard initially.

    Hey Sayed - not necessarily. The head of admissions is new for this year (as Hannah left to do a Speech and Language masters at City Uni). Therefore, they're just playing it cautiously. They do not want to end up in a position where they over offer, so are making a lot of their decisions at the end of the interview period.

    Keep your chin up.
