    Hi,
    I am in Year 11 and want to go into Dentistry. Would 9A's possibly get me in, in terms of GCSE grades.
    This is a thread for medicine at Barts 😂 search the dentistry threads?

    Don't worry! Which panel were you in?

    B... it really was frightful though one interviewer was literally laughing while I was talking and I don't think I said anything so outrageously wrong for every question I felt like he was trying to corner me and make me crack or something it was weird

    I was on Panel B at 9:25 today. Everyone was really nice! There were 3 people on my panel and they were all really nice to me, there was lots of smiling and nodding so I think that's a good sign.

    For anyone worrying, don't be. Just get there in good time and have a chat with the students beforehand to calm your nerves.

    They didn't ask any really difficult abstract questions so don't worry too much about that, I can guarantee you'll always be able to find something to say.

    Good luck!

    It's a good thing that Bart's is your first, it's pretty standard as interviews go. They don't try to catch you out, its pretty much what you'd expect.

    The first interview is always the most nerve-racking, but once you know the drill the next ones come more naturally.

    You'll be fine, deep breaths!

    Panels change everyday and also halfway through the day so there is no 'panel blah is always nicer than panel blah'

    Oh I was in the 9:25am slot, are you okay? (((
    Yeah I'm fine! I woke up at 2 am this morning and was on a coach to get to London so I was super exhausted + I felt sick during the interview so I didn't give the answers I wanted to! My silly crying was just all my frustration and tiredness coming out :P How did your interview go?

    interviews are incredibly stressful, don't beat yourself up about it! I hope you feel better; have you got other interviews?
    I once did an interview at Keele, travelling from abroad, my flight was delayed 4 hours and then I left my documents on the bus in England. I had to wait till the next bus trip to pick them up again so I ended up going to bed at 5am, up at 7 for my morning interview. Safe to say, I know how you feel!

    Yep.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know why they ask about your ethnicity at the interview?

    What I understand is that at the interview stage, everyone is at the same level and the decision is made solely based on interview scores.

    It could be to monitor the range of applicants and make sure they are not discriminating against a certain group of people.
