    I called them and asked this morning!
    And I don't know but for me I'm not holding out much hope! She said that there is an interview date in February but that is only if they don't manage to give out around 160 offers to the 250 people been invited for interview

    Hey guys!

    I know someone has already posted about this but I am a first year at Plymouth. If you have any questions about anything I will try and answer them for you. On grades/ UKCAT/ resits students in my year/ gap year students/ uni transfer students now/ clearing/ PBL! Anything!

    I can try and give advice about interviews because i'm pretty sure they're coming up. (They were in November last year)..

    Just saying Plymouth is amazing! I love it so much!

    Good luck
    Hi,

    I know you have already answered questions about the interview process and I know you get a choice of 3 ethical scenarios.

    -I was wondering how long is each ethical scenarios? (like a page of A4, a paragraph etc.)
    -And for the questions before the interview - how many questions are there?
    - how much would you reccomend writing for each question?

    Thankyou!!

    Could you tell me about the interview? I know there are the 3 scenarios but is that all you talk about in the half an hour interview or do they ask general questions too? Also we're there for 5 hours or so. What do you spend the time before the interview doing other than preparing?

    Could anyone clear this up: Will this be their only interview 'wave'. If not how many will be invited to the next?

    Don't freak out if you haven't got an interview yet, I have friends who interviewed in February and got a place.

    Re the interview, the ethical scenario is about half a page long which you read just before the interview and they will then ask you some questions on it. They won't ask you why you want to become a doctor. Instead it will be questions such as what your proudest achievement is, discuss a difficult decision you had to make, talk about a time you worked as part of a team etc. They will be looking for mature, coherent and relatively concise answers. You don't need to prepare too far in advance and try to find a way to get past the nerves so you can be yourself (this is a lot harder than it sounds so should be the main focus of your interview prep!).

    If it is the same as when I did it (which it sounds like it is), you will also be given a questionnaire to answer. For this it would be helpful to read up on current health and NHS issues. The BBC news website and the Guardian are good for this. Rather than the nitty gritty, it would be helpful to have a broad and general view of this.

    Good luck and enjoy it I really enjoyed my interview and made friends that day with fellow interviewees who are now F1s! As an Irish student from a school where no one else was applying through UCAS never mind to UK medical schools, I relied heavily on these forums and newmediamedicine so am happy to help anyone who has any further questions.
