Hi! I applied few days before deadline, and my application got validated a week ago. How long does it take to hear back for your interview typically? Also if you don't mind me asking what were your grades? I am aiming for the 5 year program.

Hey. I heard back regarding the interview about 15 days after my application was validated. I applied with AAB predicted grades.

What were your subjects? I have (A in arts, A in Biology, A in AS psychology and B in Chemistry) I applied with Predicted A* in my Psychology A-level. Did they give you a reason as to why you didn't get into the 5 year program? Since requirements show ABB for eligibility into 5 year program. Also what extra curriculars did you mention? I really appreciate the response btw! Lastly how long did it take after interview to get your offer?

I knew I was getting into the 6 year program because I have 2 out of the three required A-level subjects. I have a lot of extra curriculars but the main one is volunteering in a medical center which I wrote a lot about in my personal statement. I had my interview towards the end of Feb and got the acceptance email on 4 April.

Hey! I'm applying from Dubai. I have a couple of questions if you don't mind? Firstly when did you apply and when did you get your results? Also what were the grades you applied with and extra curriculars? How did the interview go? Also how many days did you have to wait to hear back for interview date?

Ofc x
I applied in March I think. I received an offer only a week or 2 ago x
I applied with AAA in bio chem and maths. Extra curricular were not much but a few work experiences. The interview was good it's quite informal as they do mention. I heard back 2 to 3 weeks after the interview.
Oh alright! I applied like few days before the deadline around 29th. I'm waiting back for the interview date. Little nervous as I heard the 5 year program is quite competitive this year.

I've heard the universities in Qatar are really good as well, if you don't mind can I ask what made you choose RCSI?

Well there are only two universities in Qatar that have medicine, one is Qatar University which rarely accepts non-Qataris to study medicine, the other is Weill Cornell which is really competitive and expensive. So if you want to study medicine you’ll have to most likely go abroad
