    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.
    Hey is it true 2nd year and 5th year are the only year where ranking deciles are used?

    Had my interview today. Initially thought it went well even if I did get a bit nervous halfway through. But thinking about it now, I think I really messed up on some important questions.
    Really hope it works out.
    Good luck everyone.

    Also thanks to Ashy99 who was sooo helpful before the interview 😘 thank you ❤️

    They're not used in either 1st or 2nd years (well, they do rank you, but they're rather pointless as they're not the exams that are used for FPAS rankings). They start using it fro year 3, however, but I don't know how much each exam counts towards your ranking

    Oh right. So only the clinical years? Do you know if that's only specific to Imperial?

    All the best! I'm sure you've done fine. Many people who are given offers walk out of there thinking it was an utter shambles.

    When you apply for your first job as a doctor, you basically get points based on what your ranking was at at med school. Each med school decides which exams count towards that ranking. You can see more information here if you're interested, but I wouldn't worry about it yet tbh (I'm in second year and I don't know what most of it's about yet!): http://www.foundationprogramme.nhs.uk/pages/home

    Ah ok thanks! Wasn't there talk of them introducing a common USMLE style exam that all medical students would take which the foundation schools would have the results of instead?
