    [QUOTE=Pantego;69177934]Do you think it's valid enough for me to ask to be rescheduled later in the day? My interview is at 11 but I live in Devon so I would have to leave at 5 in the morning? I don't think it's good enough reason and should probably suck it up>.<

    Just book a hotel and stay there the night before

    This article goes through a week in the life of a first year - found it quite helpful.

    So a typical 1st year timetable (2nd year timetables are similar, just with the days swapped around) looks like this:

    Monday:
    9am - 11am Lectures
    Afternoon: Anatomy/Physiology practical / Clinical Skills / Microanatomy

    Tuesday:
    9am - 11am (OR 3pm-5pm) PBL
    11am - 3pm Lectures (with an hours lunch break)

    Wednesday:
    11am - 1pm Lectures
    Afternoon off for extra-curricular/sports

    Thursday:
    Either MedSoc (full day) or Anatomy/Physiology practical / Clinical Skills / Microanatomy

    Friday:
    Similar to Tuesday

    Although you'd be timetabled for 2 hours of PBL each session, they rarely ever take more than an hour and a half. MedSoc is your GP placement and takes place once a fortnight. In your first 9 weeks, you'll only have PBLs on a Tuesday; after that, you'll have it on Friday too

    Will they ask questions about personal statement in the interview? I.e will the interviewers have the personal statement with them?

    If I remember correctly, they have your personal statement in front of them and could ask you questions from it. Although I think it varies between interviewers whether or not they actually use your PS

    It's cool. They've still got two tranches (out of three) of interviews to send out. No need to worry quite yet.

    If you've applied to both grad and undergrad courses, do you get one or two interviews? (Or none but you get me)
