    Has anyone got their article sent yet?
    I have a link to an article at the bottom of my interview offer on the portal, and I assume it's the one I'll be interviewed on. I didn't receive an email telling me it was there, so maybe it's worth checking? My interview's on the 26th and it's been there for at least a couple of days if not longer.

    I just checked mine, and I had an article attached too but received no email. Kinda annoying as I could've known and had a look a bit earlier!

    Yea I do agree with you. Before Christmas the admission did say that there are more to be sent off but I guess they didn't send it out! Even until now!

    I'm confused as to why we are all receiving articles. My interview is over a month away, not two weeks! Do you think it's best someone rings the admissions when they open again Monday to see if this is correct? We don't want to prepare for an article that may not be the one we are meant to have. It's likely the articles we got are the ones we are going to be using but if so why did Bart's say they would get sent two weeks before if that isn't true?

    You should probably delete your later post just in case 😬

    I'm beginning to wonder if the office may be a bit chaotic. ;p people have also received widely different info about how many interviews there are left still to go out. The one thing that does seem to be consistent is that the person mostly responsible for interviews is away until next week - could be that no-one else really knows the score, and that's also why the PDFs have been sent out with no regard for date (someone else, who doesn't know the system, may have made a mistake). I would definitely call next week and ask to talk to the person responsible for arranging interviews/sending out documents.

    I received the article yesterday, so I was wondering if everyone was getting the same one or not.
    do you check the mysis portal on a regular basis? so r u sure that it was sent out yesterday? so I haven't missed many days of potential preparation have I?

    I don't think anyone should worry about preparation time at all. If you spend a good hour or two looking over the article and researching the topic, then spending a bit of time on it everyday between then and your interview I'm sure you will be fine. I have spoken to a Bart's applicant and they said you just have to show you have gone away, thought about the article and the issues that may surround the topic and then be able to talk about it at interview. I Wouldn't worry you will be fine!!!

    I haven't started preparing for my Bart's interview but I have for my others. All my other 3 uni's are MMI so it's slightly different but I'm just reading articles, learning ethical principles and having an idea about what I'd say to certain questions. I would never write them out and rehearse them but I just think to myself 'Well how would I answer that' so if it did come up I wouldn't go blank as I know I have thought about it before. This way answers will come across more spontaneous yet still will seem thought out Hope this helped
