    Applied to Cambridge, UCL, Exeter and Plymouth. Have received an anknowledgement from all of them. I'm an international student btw. Do international students get interviews later than home students ?
    I don't think they would, I do know most unis try and give you at least 2weeks notice rather than 2 days xD

    Bristol is pretty standard MMI; not really much to say other than that. UCL is a traditional medical interview and actually pretty fun - had a good debate with one of the interviewers

    In the context of the question it was - he was challenging something I said - trying to provoke me - they were trying to test me under pressure so it was necessary

    I know, I'm ridiculously lucky. It'd be basically impossible for me to afford uni if I was English, so I feel really sorry for all of you!

    It was a combination of my family living fairly close to Edinburgh and wanting to get away, along with them having a preference for advanced higher biology (the bio teachers at our school aren't great, and the other 4 unis absolutely didn't mind).

    Also, I think the less traditional styles of trading appealed to me more? So after going to the open days it didn't seem like a massive sacrifice not to put Edinburgh.

    I can't actually remember I'm sorry - if you get an interview then they give you your BMAT essay before you head in so you can recap what you wrote

    I know someone rejected from Bristol but sadly no-one with an interview.
