    I received my interview invitation a month ago yet just got the same exact email this morning. Logged onto my portal and it says I have already responded (as I had done last month). Should I ring Barts up and see what they say? Just seems weird

    Haha! I don't think the email means anything, probably just an accident by admission! I'd rather not have 2 interviews, 1 interview is hard enough 😂

    I think Barts take quite a while to give out decisions. I had my interview towards the end of January but received my offer mid-March. Don't worry about it, there's nothing more to be done now apart from to wait

    They told me not to worry if I don't hear from them for a while because they said they can take up till February to March to give out their decisions. Don't worry. There is really no point in being anxious once the interview is over.

    How do you think it's the best way to answer "why medicine?"
    I know it's a personal question... but I just can't say anything without waffling and I don't really have any "life-changing" events that lead me to pursue this career.. any advice?

    Tbh they're very friendly and responsive. And there are students in the waiting area who talk to you so it really helps you calm down. Idk how much I'm allowed to say about the interview but I think they focus more on you as a person.

    My advice would be to sit down by yourself with a piece of paper and just write down, even in bullet points, the first things that come to mind when you ask yourself what made you want to do medicine. Don't overthink, don't worry about your points sounding "cliche" or "generic", just clear your mind and get it down. After you do get it down, you can make your points juicier by adding your own experiences. You don't have to have had a life changing experience to be passionate about pursuing a career in medicine; just think about the things that make YOU want medicine so badly. I think you're right in that it's quite a personal answer, so really nobody else can tell you what to say or it just won't sound genuine! After you've figured out your own reasons you can then practice and structure your answer with others

    Hope this helped
