    What do you think you have to do in order for a rejection at interview stage considering a 76% probability of getting an offer?

    I.e. what would happen for a rejection to be given???
    I think it's a 64% chance, anyway in your interview they must see that you have strong motivation to do medicine and a realistic approach to medicine as a career must be strong too as far as I can remember

    An interview, as many people have put it in the past, is a clean slate for the majority of applicants. Regardless of what you got in the BMAT or how many A Levels you are doing, an interview is an opportunity for you to show the interviewers, face-to-face, how much you really want the place and how passionate you can make yourself out to be in the 20 minutes you are in the room. So back to your question, I would say if one displays passion, determination and resilience when answering questions, as well as getting the balance right in their answers, I see no reason why they wouldn't receive an offer. Nervousness is an unavoidable flaw, and the interviewers themselves are aware of it. Ultimately, no other applicant was in the room but yourself and only you will know how well or how much better you could've done. Applicants who have been rejected in the past simply did not display the level of passion, intellect or well-roundness needed for such a course, and not for being too nervous. Worrying about the outcome of an interview is most definitely not going to make a difference to the actual outcome of the interview, so in the meantime, sit tight and watch your emails, because who knows, by next week you could be a medicine offer holder.
    Good luck.

    For the interview this may help

    You definitely need to show a realistic approach to studying medicine as well as having a real motivation to studying medicine as those are the 2 most important factors they look for in the interview as quoted below from the FOI request
    "All aspects of the candidate’s performance are considered and offers made on a case by case basis; however, no candidate who scores Moderate or Weak on the following two criteria are made an offer:
    • Motivation to study medicine
    • Realistic approach to medicine as a career "
    As long as you are genuine and really show your passion for wanting to study Medicine then this should be alright
    Also I was told by a fellow interviewee that the water they offer you is a test to see how anxious you are (as they mark you on this) and one interviewee in particular 'fell' for this test and was so anxious and shaking that they spilt the water all over themselves. I'm not sure how true this is but just as a side note!

    Hello, I don't think whether you ask a question or not would affect the outcome of the interview. The interviewers are really friendly and they try their best to put you at ease. Yes the interview is very similar to the mock interview videos. My advice is to be yourself and don't rehearse answers. Just have a point or two that you want to make in your mind and try to answer on the spot. Good luck
    Hey, can I ask what mock interview videos you're talking about? Need to get as much prep as possible. Thanks.
