    Just got a pre-interview rejection.
    Wtf.
    I thought my application was strong.
    They said
    "Thank you for your application to King's College London. Your application has now been carefully considered. Whilst you meet the entrance requirements for the programme, applications are considered in a competitive environment. We have received many applications this year and due to the competition for places have had to disappoint many candidates. Therefore, I regret to inform you that you have been unsuccessful in obtaining a place on the programme.

    May we take this opportunity to wish you every success with future applications."

    Those are solid stats mate. Maybe the international competition was tough? I'm shocked.

    What about the personal statement ? Do you think they read into that? Cause it's holistic . I haven't heard back but not holding my breath either ... 700 UKCAT , 2:1 degree and an MSc from Oxford .

    Idk I felt that my personal statement was good.
    I had gotten interviews at Exeter and Barts (which is more competitive than King's) so I thought that I had a good chance of getting one from King's. It was really shocking.

    I guess it's your personal statement, I ave an interview and got way lower stats and I'm an international student too. Personal statement is very subjective to opinion though so hopefully you'll have offers elsewhere!

    This is a question to people who have had their interviews. Apologies in advance if these questions have been asked before. Also, if you are not allowed to share this information, please just say so- I am not trying to gain info that is not allowed to be shared!

    - how much prep time is given before an MMI station? Is the prep time outside the room where the interview takes place or in the room?
    - how many interviewers are there?

    thank you in advance!

    There's only 30 places for international students on the A100 course at kings so the standards and competition is a lot higher if you're international

    There's no prep - I think we had 2 mins of rest between stations, and then we went to the next one and they started asking the questions. There are 7 stations with one interviewer in each.

    There are others here who haven't received interview invites or pre-interview rejections but you definitely should've received a confirmation of receiving your application. Are you sure you haven't - did you get an email giving you your King's apply portal password?

    Doesn't make sense as I've had interviews from way more competitive and selective unis for medicine.
