    Congrats, do you mind me asking your GCSEs and UKCAT?

    I haven't got one from kings yet but have from Manchester and Leicester. Just reading the isc interview book and going forward from there. What preparation are you doing

    Ah congrats on those interviews, that's great! Good luck :-) I got 11.5A*s GCSE and 693UKCAT av band 2.

    Yeah same as you and looking online at MMI practise questions too.

    Btw I know someone that had a much better UKCAT than me and 3A*predictions (I'm predicted A*A*A) that hasn't got an interview yet so I think maybe we're incorrectly thinking as a thread that they choose the best candidates first! Whatever it is, don't worry

    Well I have 9a*s and 2as GCSE / predicted 3a*
    Soo much work experience-8weeks worth
    And I volunteer at 3 places for almost 2 yrs (hospice/carehome/hospital shop) so since my ukcat isn't as strong ive made up for it in other areas. That's what I love about kings is they look at you 'holistically' so if you are average in one area they won't discredit you

    Thank you! Hopefully kings is my dream! But don't worry it's only early December, they have sooo many more interviews to give. Some advice for myself and other medics is to not lose sight of whats most important - getting the a level grades! good luck!

    Get a 700+ (or there abouts) average on your UKCAT and you should be fine in getting an interview
    Even though this post is old it's wrong! I have sub 700 and have an interview, so no one be put off due to a 600-700ukcat

    Thanks, have you heard from anywhere else?
    Wow you're so much smarter than me, my gcses were 5A*s 3As and 1B with 713/band1.

    Yep I'm really going to start solid interview prep after next week I think, have an awful chemistry test coming up 😭

    Yeah I don't think kings are doing it in a systematic order, just have to be patient

    Patience is key. Most will hear in Marh anyways so as you said, an early interview doesn't mean much.

    I've been told that King's interviews tend to be much nicer than others (e.g Notts and Sheffield) and they don't even have our PS beforehand so they can judge everyone entirely on the day. The interview score total is 85

    Ah thank you but I honestly doubt that- GCSEs are very different to A levels and you have a great UKCAT most people would dream of! And good luck with the chemistry, it's so difficult trying to fit everything right 😂

    I've got an interview at Oxford but still waiting on Notts and UCL. I'm just taking each interview as it comes and trying to not worry too much 😬

    Will Kings have our personal statement during the interview? I get the feeling not, but I am not 100% sure

    According to the information sheet, they will have no prior knowledge of the applicant at the interview station. Take that as you will.
