When Do Medical Schools Send Interview Invites?

by Ash Mandavia October 26, 2018 2 min read

The months of September and October are tough times for all of you applying to medical school. Some of you would have spent what seems like an age drafting and then redrafting your personal statements. Others would have been revising for the UCAT (UKCAT) hoping that the shapes in the Abstract Reasoning section somehow formed a pattern. But one universal truth is that all of you navigated the labyrinth that is the UCAS primary application form. Congrats on surviving the application process! So, now what? The medical school admissions process is not over yet - now you’ve entered the medical school interview time frame. Do you get the feeling that you’ve entered the calm before the storm? Any moment now your phone could buzz or your laptop could ping when that email appears. We appreciate that the stress and anxiety can be tough.


Here at the MSAG, we don’t like it when prospective medical students are stressed! If you’re worrying that you haven’t received your invite yet, keep reading.
