Are there medical schools that don't base their offer entirely on interview scores? Watch

    Other than edinburgh (of course). And I don't really mean they use ukcat as tiebreaker, I mean like 50% interview score 50% something else. I ask because I'm not that great at interviews (especially compared to my academics). Thanks!

    I think Aberdeen. Not sure what other med schools do, though. Sorry

    edit: quite a few med schools combine your SJT band with interview score, if that's something you mean?

    Aberdeen and edinburgh i think are the only ones....

    For medicine being good at interviews really isnt going to work to well, can i ask why you dont think your good at interviews? Getting a lot of practice and prep in will really help you!

    I'm a reapplicant and after my three interview's last year I was so close to the cutoff and I just don't want that to happen again.

    Not as of last year. UKCAT is used as a tiebreaker but that's it.
