    Ok, so far from this thread I haven't heard anyone thats got an offer from Kings, I did my interview 13th Dec morning and I'm very very low key getting stressed out that I haven't heard back yet. How is everyone feeling?!
    Mine was on the 6th December and I haven't either but I'm not that stressed about it because we'll get a decision by March at the latest (whether that be an offer or rejection). There's nothing we can do about it now except wait!

    Other than the usual interview prep my best advice would be to take a water bottle. I'm so glad I did because my mouth felt rather dry between stations

    I had my interview on the 13th as well, and haven't heard back either. It is difficult to be kept in suspense, but I think we're just going to have wait it out because there is a chance that we might not hear back till March

    Yes you can. There's a room that they take you into before the interview starts where you can leave your belongings.

    Do they have your personal statement at the interview? Like is there a station where they talk about your personal statement?

    No, read the interview invitation sheet, it says something along the lines of 'the interviewers will not have seen your UCAS form'.

    Kings look at an application hollistically. So good gcses make up for a below avg ukcat score. Well done on your grades btw they are good enough, and you only need 3 a levels now due to new linear system, an extra AS won't advantage you in any way

    If you look at king's its student satisfaction ranks quite low compared to everyone else. :/

    I went to a talk this summer and the girl there (she had graduated from King's but wasn't there to promote the uni or anything) said it's largely because it's such a big year. You don't get to know everyone and might feel lost and alone and you get quite little individual attention from the staff. I think she also said that the student's union is crap. I've heard from elsewhere that King's is quite disorganized and for example lectures get often cancelled without anyone informing the students beforehand. The girl said that she had the time of her life though and while these things can be annoying they matter relatively little in everyday life.
