Thank you so much!! I was just wondering how scientific the question would be, and whether they use our references during the interview?

Thanks again

By reference you mean your teachers reference? I'm not too sure on that, many unis interview you having not looked at personal statement, and won't use it in the process. As it is MMI every student will have the same questions and such personal questions on reference are unlikely to come up. Though I may be wrong.

By scientific, I expect that the uni won't want much above that of ALvel knowledge, let's be honest, if you knew as much as a medical student before going why you going?

No worries

Have any of you guys received confirmation when exactly the interview will be and at what time or has it just been a verbal confirmation so far?

Did you do any MMI interviews when applying originally? My daughter applied for dentistry and her second MMI interview went way better than her first. All unis have their own version but common consensus seems to be keep calm, don't give up on a task and just do your best. At Cardiff a student told us he got in and a friend didn't even though his friend did better on some tasks because he talked more and was more reassuring. Good luck .

Monday was the last interview slot I believe so I think that you would be too late, if you want to reapply UEA took 2 people from my school with AAB

WHAT!?!? I phoned sheffield and they told me unless the medical admissions team called you (assuming it's students on the waiting list), then there were no places left. OMG so I was lied to?... They DID go into clearing?

As far as I know, going through clearing is a sh*t show and you should just phone up as many unis doing your course as you can. Even if they didn't officially didn't go through clearing (like Sheffield this year) they might still have space on the course.

For medicine I think it's pretty much over now (sorry ), but you could always try an alternative route through clearing if you don't want to wait a year.

No, not at all. The people from my school got in to UEA for 2017 entry with AAB they aren't repeating it. It seems like medical schools advertise certain grades but in reality, after interview, they will accept you with lower than AAA.

I don't think it was clearing. I didn't get an interview from phoning up and I hadn't applied there in the first place so was never on any wait list. It was a shock to be offered an interview to be honest considering I'd emailed all the other medical schools and they'd all told me there were no spaces in the A100 course. Really odd situation to be honest. Especially seeing as in clearing loads of unis (Liverpool, Bristol, St. George's) seemed to be advertising medicine spaces but when I phoned up admissions staff appeared to know nothing about it. All very strange, very much seemed to be all about luck.
