    I agree, they did a good job of keeping things as relaxed as possible. The school seems nice and the town has a few nice cafe's from what I could see (along with the giant ASDA!

    Was that you DrPhil strolling out the room about 2:30 ? I may have saw you but didn't want to interrupt the chat with Dr. Boyd. I was told the same thing about the references as was a couple other members recently interviewed. I'm fairly confident they say that to everyone regardless of the outcome. WAITING SUCKS!!!!! Don't want to get my hopes up either but here's to hoping!

    Good luck everyone <3

    Yeah that was me, leaving at about 2.30-ish... was chatting to Dr Boyd about my journey home, and that I had about 40 mins to get from the college to the station!

    Normally you can get a hint of how things are going and what they're thinking during the interview, but I found it quite tricky with this one. They really gave nothing away.

    Fingers crossed!

    Sorry to hear DrPhil. Make sure you get in contact with them for some feedback! If you are dedicated to the education and career, establish and rectify the shortcomings and apply again. Perseverance will triumph!

    I haven't received anything as of yet. The anticipation is ruining my life haha! I am trying to keep a my thoughts fairly neutral as whatever will be, will be.

    Best of luck on your future endeavours mate =)

    Frangelico, as mentioned in previous posts there is not a tonne you can do for the interview. It's really based around your personal experiences, experience and reflection (take note of that word heh). The best advice I could give you is to know your personal statement very well, be honest, open and reflect on your past. After all, this is an access program designed for mature students most likely looking to change direction. There has to be a reason for that and the college likes to hear those reasons. Also, I would recommend getting to know as much as possible of both the Perth and St Andrews programs.

    Now although I have not yet been successful, I have also not been unsuccessful. I had my interview 2 weeks ago and since have not received a rejection. The Intl' office has been in touch with me so I am hoping for the best but trying not to get my hopes up.

    I hope that helps a bit and good luck!

    Hey, Fellow forum users, as a fore mentioned, I'm looking for flat mates in perth, I was wondering if anyone was also attending perth college, or if they knew of a forum I could look for flat mates. it's alot cheaper this way.

    Hey Guys,
    thanks for this thread and all the good advice on the course and the interview, good on you - followed it for quite a while until I felt brave enough to attend an interview, too.
    I've just received an offer yesterday.

    Hi guys!
    Quick few questions, what happened at your interview for the pathways course?
    Is it just like a medical school interview?

    Thanks :)

    Hi Addy,

    Sorry, I don't spend much time on the forum anymore as I'm busy with finals. The course has changed slightly since I completed it, and although I'm in regular contact with a course lecturer, I'd consult Kathleen as she will be up to date.

    Best of luck, I was in your position once and it's worth it in the end :)

    Hi Folks,

    I just wanted to wish good luck to everyone applying for the PtM course this year! I applied last summer and I was one of the lucky ones chosen for the 2012/13 intake. Myself and Kathleen know exactly what you must be going through.. if you have any questions at all, feel free to ask!

    Hi there, I have been told that I have an interview for the course this year and I'm delighted! However, I am extremely nervous about the interview stage and I would be so grateful if anyone could perhaps give me an indication of the kind of questions that are asked so that I keep my cool on the day? :)
    Moreover, can anyone give me an indication of how difficult it actually is to be one of the top 5? Is the chemistry extremely advanced? I'm worried because I'm good at science, but I'm not so good at mathematics!
    Good luck to everyone applying and congratulations to those who have had their offers already!
    Best Wishes,
    Nick :)
