I'm so unsure of to if to apply or not. If im honest im not that interested in research but If it would significantly improve my application fo speciality training I'd be keen (i want to do paediatrics). It seems like ALOT of extra hassel, bsically like applying for med school all over again which not sure i have the energy for. I've also heard it makes it harder to have a good time in junior doctor years and you can become very bogged down in research hours. My issue is that with the new KSS changes we dont know how many paediatric posts there will be in the normal FP until after applying to the denary...

It means you have passed the first part of the application. For most deaneries they longlist then shortlist (usually means offered interview). Longlisting is usually based on deciles or other points. Congratulations!

which AUoA did you apply to? (if you don't mind sharing)
