Hey,

the interview lasted 15 mins although it seemed more like 2 mins. They asked questions closely related to the personal statement + some ethical issues.

Only badish one was "pretend you are a doctor and i'm a patient, tell me i've got cancer."


The questions were really specific to my personal statement so I can't really be much more help..

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

I honestly can't remember, although they did say it was a good answer.

To update the status of my medical application:

Cambridge - offer - 3As at AH
Glasgow - offer - BC at AH, B in H Biology
Edinburgh - offer - B in H Biology
Aberdeen - Had interview although said if they gave me an offer it would be unconditional.

Werlop don't you have to do another exam in Cambridge before they let you in, even though you have the required grades?

No, for Cambridge I only need to make the 3A offer which will be a lot of work sad.gif

I did have to sit an exam in November called the BMAT http://www.bmat.org.uk/ which was part of the selection procedure.

Yep. Are you taking a year before you go to uni? Have you thought of St Andrews?

Doesn't St Andrews have a different system? That's what put me off from there.

I think they do a medical sciences degree for the first three years and then they do clinical at Manchester for three years.

lol... it's not Manchester that put me off. It's the idea of transferring to a different city and also that you're studying a medical sciences degree. blink.gif

I don't know how well founded these opinions are but almost all the doctors I spoke to before applying warned me to avoid St Andrews. I'm afraid I don't know enough about it to make a valid judgement myself.

Emmanuel for me. I know someone there so i maybe biased. The accomodations are expernsive. I'm thinking of buying an apartment there rather then renting. I think it's cheaper. What are you deciding to do?

If i said i was you won't get any funny ideas of me stalking right?

I have a house there so it's an option. It's got a great night life. The professors there are really good and the hospitals there definitely keep you busy.
