    Any idea when Cambridge starts giving out interviews?
    In 2014 (for 2015 entry), invitations went out on November 7th, for interviews on the 25th/26th.

    Last year, invitations went out on 12th Nov, and interviews were held on the 24th and 25th. I think they went out quite late last year, hopefully it won't be as bad this year!

    Nope, UKCAT results don't go out to the universities until sometime in November. And ofcourse the GAMSAT results will be mid-November. Nothing will be dished out until after the unis have seen and sorted through these results.
    Ah ok i thought I was going crazy.

    The lack of sunlight the past few days has made me crazy depressed so I've literally been spending the last two days permanently in front of my sun lamp

    But at least I've now found out I will be starting work next week so that'll keep me distracted from university applications!

    I know. I'm going to the gym tomorrow and cleaning my bedroom.

    And I've started writing stories again which I haven't really done since I was a teen because I can't find many interesting books to read and there's not enough TV to occupy me. Sucks that most of my friends from uni have now moved back home.

    How are you filling your time?

    If it's any help, it does seem to go faster when interviews start coming out! Feels awful when you're right at the beginning and all you can do is wait. Hang in there!

    I'm not gonna lie but I've had 0 motivation to do anything, just forced myself.

    Maybe pick babysitting up again, look for bank/agency jobs or even pick up a new hobby??

    Does Cambridge accept A Level resits for GEM? I'm currently a second year student at Bristol studying Computer Science, and I'd like to aim for 2018 entry but I think I'd need to resit my A levels to stand any chance. I think I could do it alongside my current work load...

    Hi all!

    Maybe I've missed it somewhere here already, but does anyone have more details about what the interview/MMI process involves for GEM at the different universities?

    So far I could only find the following info for the courses I've applied to:

    Kings A102: MMI Early Jan
    Newcastle A101: MMI 12-16 Dec / 9-12 Jan / 10-14 Feb
    Queen Mary A101: Group based task / structured interview
    Southampton A101: Selection day Mon 9 / Wed 11 Jan

    Also any recommendations for books / courses for preparation gratefully received!

    (To be clear, I haven't received any invites for interview from any of these so far!)

    I used Medical School Interviews by Lee and Picard to prep for interviews and found it really useful!

    I've picked up Spanish again since I wrote in my Personal Statement that I'm studying spanish and portuguese so I figured I should probably improve haha

    I'm so anxious about results now.
