    You are probably best off contacting kings admissions directly for information regarding this x

    Lol dude... c'mon. We're all competing. Why do you say you won't be competing against me? And if you're applying to KCL, chances are your stats are good enough to be competitive

    I can't say too much in order to protect my anonymity but trust me when I tell you that with your stats you are in a damn strong position to apply to King's GEM not just the undergrad, and I'm not just saying that to be nice.

    Honestly! We did so much worse than last year, that could be because the tests were harder this year? Or people maybe were not as prepared?

    Well then you know what you need to focus on. Have you had mock interviews? What do you think went wrong? I'm not really worried about interviews. The main hurdle for me is getting invited to interviews.

    honestly, i am low-key hoping that my ukcat will just carry me. i am not sure what i can do to improve my interview skills, i read books, internet, went to a course etc. nothing seemed to have helped. i am gonna try contacting more doctors this year and get them to do more mocks with me

    Can i give you some unsolicited advice? Books will only get you so far. And the course? Meh I'd probably skip that. I found mock interviews to be the single most helpful thing. Also preparing your answers but not preparing them too much. e.g. Write down some possible interview questions and then answer them with bullet points. I only focus on remembering the bullet points for interview because that allows me to speak more naturally so it's not a rehearsed answer and then your passion is able to come across
