    Hey,
    A few people have been saying that King's now looks at the entire application after the interview and not just the interview performance anymore, however when I had my interview (early December) they specified to us that after interview they only look at our interview performance. Is that no the case?

    Does anyone have the screenshot of the message where King's answers this questions, as I haven't been able to find it in this thread.
    Thank you!!

    You received an email whereas someone else was told directly after the interview that it was based solely on interview performance. I think it might be worth someone calling them to ask?

    I'm also really confused by this. How are they going to score other areas? How are grads gonna be compared to a level students?

    When it means holistic you're going to be awarded on your own merit rather than how you compare to others.

    Well then you're going to have to take this at face value.

    "If A-level's are easier, why isn't everyone doing them?"
    Weak argument mate. Way more people do A levels than IB. One exam board doesn't not have to be completely subscribed to by the entire population for a pattern to be seen. You could ask the same question of IB - "If IB is easier, why isn't everyone doing them?". See? This doesn't do anything.
    More people do A levels than IB. This difference is in a completely different order of magnitude. In May 2016 there were 150k IB students of the graduating cohort in the world (http://www.ibo.org/contentassets/bc8...ay-2016-en.pdf). The graduating cohort of a level students for 2014 IN THE UK was 260k candidates (https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...ct_take-up.pdf).
    I'm sorry I just had to after seeing this photo

    Oh i'm sorry for your friend, but at least we didn't get rejected yet haha

    I read on their website that they interview as late as april sometimes, especially international/non uk students, so I guess there's still hope for us!

    Ah I had mine at 15.45. How did you find it? I'm not really sure how mine went but at least the stations weren't as bad as I had expected them to be based on what some people said here

    Did you have that one guy who just asked the question and stared at you the rest of the time?

    Uhhh maybe? He asked multiple questions during the station but a couple of times when I finished he just stared at me and smiled until I continued lol.

    I didn't think my answers were too bad except for one or two stations. But a lot of things I prepared for never came up. Annoyed at that.
