Well done that’s great stats! I honestly don’t know what liverpool really go off when choosing people for interview, I think it’s a combination of lots of things (i also applied last year and I’ve been a student here for four years and I’m still pretty clueless 😂) fingers crossed for you though!

How did you find starting straight away with the second year medics in terms of learning the first year of content by yourself? Would you recommend doing any pre reading beforehand?

Joining the people on the second year "undergrad" path has been great! It's definitely a bit nerve-wracking to go from a small summer school to a cohort of 300, but they're enthusiastic and bring a lot of energy to small group and clinical skills sessions. The grad-only teaching means that you're just about able to keep up with them, but it does sometimes feel like they've had a head-start (which is true!)

There's a summer school reading list that gets sent out ahead of starting in August, I did some reading out of pure excitement, but in all honesty, I don't think it's worth it. Until you get on the course and start to understand the shape of what you need to know, it's easy to waste your time studying something irrelevant! I'd recommend that if you wanted to do pre-reading, to have a look at the GMC stuff on what is expected of a student doctor!

What resources did you use to prepare for the interview?!

Lee and Picard's book of medical school interview questions is the "gold standard" for good reason. I'd recommend having a read of this, not to rote-learn the answers but to understand the thought process you're expected to have. You want to come across as considerate, knowledgeable and understanding of the pressures on doctors today.

I sound like a broken record, but read the stuff from the GMC and medical schools council on what selection criteria medical schools should use! Liverpool base their questions on this advice, so you won't go far wrong from understanding them!

Had my interview today, hope everyone else’s went ok! Does anyone know exactly how many people they interview? And am I right in thinking there are ~30 places for grads?

135 people were interviewed for 2019 entry (339 applications) but I'm not sure how many offers were made

Thanks. Not great odds then if there are only around 30 places!

Did anyone else get a random “you got an interview so here’s a link to accommodation” email? Nearly jumped out of my skin as I assumed it would be radio silence until they start sending offers...

Hi Chilledice

I wondered if you would mind sharing a rough idea of the A101 timetable over the first year? And if you know how that changes through the course?

Thanks
