    No - they look at other things too. I know people who had 7s in their BMAT but were rejected pre-interview.

    Am i the only one who felt like the interviewers were slightly harsh and pushing me to finish and cutting me off before i could wrap my answer up, making it seem disjointed?

    I felt like that in my interview too. I don't think that it's an indicator of what they think of you. When I went they may just have been wary of the time as they were already over running before I went in. Well done for getting through it!
    well done to you too, its a waiting game now

    Hi everyone! I'm Lydia (2nd year) and had the privilege of showing some of you lot round campus today. Hope those who had their interview today and those with one coming up can stay chill. Enjoy your interview day!!!! (I can confirm, this is possible) and make the most of the experience, whether you had a tough interview or it was a breeze. Student room is helpful but don't get too obsessed with checking how other people found the interview etc. Any questions just message me!!

    No one knows - we have no idea how your interview went.

    This might be a stupid question but is it bad to make a joke in the interview? Let's say if they ask you a question and you start the answer with a bit of humour but answer it seriously after. Is that bad?

    I'd avoid it personally, in case they don't laugh as that'd end up being very awkward. If you're sure the joke will make them laugh though and it's not inappropriate, then you could gamble it I guess although I wouldn't recommend it.

    I guess I'll avoid it 😂 Does imperial have whole body dissection?

    We do have some dissection, although we don't dissect the full body. For things like anatomy of the thorax/abdomen/pelvis, there tended to be quite a bit of dissection to do but then for things like head, neck and spine and limbs, there seems to be more prosection rather than dissection. There still is some but most of it is done for you. Even then, I managed to mess it up and cut into the brain when I wasn't meant to, making me decide instantly that I'd probably be a terrible neurosurgeon.

    I made them laugh and after they laughed it calmed me down a bit!
