    I'm nervous about what they would ask about my personal statement.
    if i said i volunteered at a dementia care home, will they ask me about dementia facts or at a special needs school- will ask me about different diseases. i'm nervous that at the time I'll have a mind blank. Or an oncology clinic: will they ask me about different types of cancers?
    i did a course and wrote about it on my ps: will they ask me scientific questions on the topics from the course: should I revise?
    i think i'm just having last minute nerves but I'm nervous that I won't be completely prepared or they'll come out with something I won't know how to answer.
    what sort of questions do they ask regarding your personal statement?

    Id say theyre more like, what did you learn from this or difficulties of medicine etc. They dont have very long to grill you to the bone so don't panic! Its good to read up on all your subjects though, you won't be expected to know everything but a decent understanding is good. Good luck, you'll do great!!

    So I had my interview today. Thought it went pretty well, however many people got rejected after thinking that so still quite nervous. I have a St Georges' interview next Tuesday, any chance I can get a reply in 6 days? lol

    I wouldn't worry about it too much - the interview is short and they just want to get to know you as a person, not necessarily how much specific detail you know about medicine.

    I heard back after 7 days, so there's a chance you may hear back before your next interview, but unlikely I'm afraid, as most people hear back within 1-2 weeks.

    How did your interview go?

    Lol hopefully.
    The interview went better than expected - a few unexpected questions but even those went well. Hopefully it becomes an offer, let's hope I didn't unknowingly say anything stupid

    I would get it for before you begin. They'll make an official freshers page for you guys soon, and you'll get useful information posted there by the SU reps throughout your time at med school. Oh, and they upload past paper questions and useful notes there too for exams when you get there.
