So so glad it’s over 😂 I definitely spoke too much I think and found the questions very specific but I managed to answer them all thankfully. How did yours go? Yeah I’d asked about when we hear back, seems so long away!
Yeah it was ok wasn't great, I thought there wasn't enough time to talk about everything with interviews only being 25 minutes this year! Fingers crossed we all get positive news :D
I felt the same, not enough time to go into great detail about anything. I know!! The waiting game is worse than waiting for the interview I think

The waiting game is 100% worse, I am so anxious. I am really hoping we hear back on Monday, good luck either way! What health board were you interviewing for if you don't mind me asking?

Me too. I can’t gauge how well I done either so I really don’t know what the outcome will be. My pretences were Orkney, borders and Tayside! What about you?

Me either, the further away from the interview the worse I am starting to think it went. My preferences were Fife, for valley and the borders.

I think it might take more time this year due to it all being remote but that’s what I’m telling myself 😁 I’d be happy to go anywhere to be honest!

How many health boards were you guys interviewed by? I still don't know if we're simply being considered for one choice or for all of them.

I was only interviewed by one health board, alongside the academic representative. I did expect it to be two health boards.

My interview panel had one lady representing Orkney and another lady but I’m sure she said she was one of the organisers of the course or something along those lines.. I think 😅

I had the clinical leads of Glasgow and Lanarkshire plus the course lead. The wait is torture! The questions were really good whether I answered them well I can never tell hah I think I spoke too much about covid 🙈

Ah okay, I was interviewed by one health board and a uni representative as well. It's been a very long week! Hopefully not too much longer to wait. Good luck!

My understanding is that people who score highest get their choice preferences and that’s how it works. So if you scored relatively high but your preferred HB is full you will be offered somewhere else ? Whether that’s 100% true or not though I’m unsure.

I was only interviewed by one health board too, I think most people that I’ve spoken to were this year!

I really hope that is the case this year so we have more of a chance, rather than only being considered for one health board. Good luck to everyone! The wait has been horrible lol
