Thresholds aren’t determined my applications - they are determined by the medical committee and then they base who fills the spots on grades once threshold is met.We dont know what Conservative means, it depends on who applies, if 500 ppl applied for med with DM score of 650 or beyond, then wouldn't it be obvious that the cutoff for DM be 650 for med?
Have they said if they will release the actual UCAT cut-offs? I.e. so next years people know what to aim for...I mean tbvh no one knows anything ... we're just speculating that dent interview thresholds are higher than med given that most of the people who apply for med will do so for dent as well and that there are less spots to fill in dent so the UCAT threshold will be more strict.
Pretty much I'm telling everyone to just focus on exams and get the grades you guys want since what if the threshold really does lower and you realise that you could have gotten in if yall didn't give up way too soon.
They take from a pool of questions usually. Most people will probably get similar questions with a couple that vary. As long as you’ve read up and have thought about answers to the likely questions they might ask, you’re set.Does anyone know if they ask everyone the same questions for dentistry interviews?
From what I hear, the interview is just pass or fail and it's pretty chill. Don't worry too much since many people think "dang I should've said this or that" but in reality, it's a lot more chill from what I hear. The main contributing factor are your grades so focus on that since it's what you have control over.Do many people fail to get in to dentistry because of the interview?
I am little bit worried
You can get a halfway reasonable idea of HSFY by trawling through all the previous HSFY yearly discussion threads. HSFY is quite different from preclinical medicine (2nd and 3rd year), which is quite different to clinical medicine, which is still a lot different to what you actually do once you're a doctor. Generally, most people seem to find each year better than the previous on the whole.Hi can anyone tell me what HSFY is actually like? In Depth please because I’m feeling a bit conflicted between medicine and law. And does it get better second year of medicine?
HSFY is really a lot like a typical uni science course, where you go to up to 4 x 1hr lectures a day, and twice a week go to 3-hour lab classes. What you do with the rest of that time, like typical university study, is up to you. For the seven core papers (4 in semester 1, and 3 in semester 2) there are no essay/report type assignments, and assessments come in the form of tests of various sizes - small (online quizzes that count towards your final mark), medium ("terms tests"/"mid-semester tests"/whatever they're called now - a Saturday morning test along the way), and large (end-of-semester final exams, one 3-hour exam for each paper).Hi can anyone tell me what HSFY is actually like?
