    Sorry to hear that guys ^, you are obviously amazing applicants and I'm convinced you'll still make excellent doctors!
    I felt my interview went well when I came out, I waffled on some of the questions, but the people were quite nice.

    I wonder when they'll make a Facebook group for medicine offer holders? Other unis seem to have made them already

    Has anyone who received an offer, received an email from them? Because they mention a DBS form but I have no idea what that is and how to complete it and where to get the form from.

    DBS form is basically a criminal record check, you can get one online at disclosure Scotland, but I think the cheapest Is something like £26 (not too sure though)

    They'll send you the DBS form and all occupational health forms soon, so you don't need to worry about that for the time being. It was sent around March time when I applied (iirc).

    Yup as Dan said it's a criminal record check and I had it done for my volunteering (they gave me the form to complete). I haven't got an email from them yet after my offer and since the dbs usually takes like a month to process, I think that we'll hear from them later about it since I'm guessing we'll get a form from them to do it.

    Hi just wondering if someone who is currently a medic at imperial can answer a few questions.

    -I know the first two years are largely based in South Ken but where else do you have lectures/tutorials etc?

    - where do most students live after 1st year?

    - I know which hospitals are part of imperial but which ones are you actually at in years 3, 5 & 6. Are you every sent outside of Greater London?

    - in year 4 are you back in South Ken?

    - the term dates for the whole uni are up til end of June in practise do you finish earlier in medicine or does it run right up til end of June?

    Thanks

    Do they ask questions on the NHS? I don't think they do but I'm not sure. Any other interview tips would be very much appreciated 👏🏻

    What vaccines are required for the occupational health form? Are there any other questions asked?

    I can't remember them all but a fair few. Don't worry if you can't get them on time either - just as long as you fill in the form saying which ones you've had and which ones are outstanding and submit it on time, you'll be fine and OH will sort out any outstanding vaccinations to be had.

    They will also ask you questions about your general health.

    -I know the first two years are largely based in South Ken but where else do you have lectures/tutorials etc?
    You spend fair bit of time at Charing Cross Hospital too (which is actually in Hammersmith and not Charing Cross), and anatomy teaching/dissection happens there too. You may have some teaching at St Mary's but that's literally about 2 or 3 sessions in the entire two years. You might, although it's unlikely, have some tutorials in Hammersmith Hospital too (which is in Acton and not Hammersmith).

    - where do most students live after 1st year?
    Most I know tend to live around the Hammersmith area, near Charing Cross hospital.

    - I know which hospitals are part of imperial but which ones are you actually at in years 3, 5 & 6. Are you every sent outside of Greater London?
    Yes, you can be, and the allocation seems to be random. My first placement was in St Peters (which is also shared with St George's Med School) which is in Surrey so it was a fair trek every day.

    - in year 4 are you back in South Ken?
    Depends on your BSc as to wher you'd mostly be tbh.

    - the term dates for the whole uni are up til end of June in practise do you finish earlier in medicine or does it run right up til end of June?

    Thanks
    Tends to be a little earlier, except in the final years where you get hardly any time off.

    Would you say most placements over the 6 years are in or out of London? Also do you pay your own travel? Are the placement hours in times you'd be able to get public transport? Thanks
