As with your application, once your interview has been completed, feedback on your interview assessment and application status will be available. The ways in which feedback will be given include:

  • Appointabililty status and ranking - you will be informed whether or not your application can be considered for appointment and, if so, what is your ranking out of all those found appointable; candidates found not appointable are not given a ranking.
  • Interview scores -  your interview scores will be released to your Oriel account. This will include the scores at each of the interview stations, your 'raw' interview score, and your final, overall score. A graph detailing the distribution of scores across all interviews in the round will be published to the document library on this website. This will include average scores and the ratio of appointable candidates.
  • Detailed feedback -   interviewer comments from your interview will be emailed to you. Interviewers will be using tablets to score candidates and make notes and so this will be a word for word transcription of the comments written by each one.

The intention is to release appointability status and ranking before candidates start choosing their programme preferences to help inform them how many they need to consider. The date by which detailed feedback will be released is available in the timeline section of the website.


Once all scores have been verified and compiled and the programme preferences deadline has passed, appointable candidates will be informed whether:

  • they have been made an offer in accordance with their rank and preferences
  • they cannot be offered one of their programme preferences at that stage, due to them being offered to more highly ranked candidates, and so have been placed on the reserve list for future iterations of offers.

The offers section of the website has more information on this part of the process.

In some cases you may be asked to provide some documentation to allow your application to progress. This can either be because:

  • You did not bring it to interview - in which case you will be told on the day what is required and when you must return it. In many cases there will be a form given to you clarifying this information.
  • It is an additional requirement not requested at interview - in which case you will be contacted to inform what it is, when it is required and where to send it. In most cases this will not apply prior to offer.

Regardless of why you are being asked to supply the document, it is very important that you meet the deadline required; failure to do so could result in your withdrawal or you being unable to take up a post.

You may be eligible to claim reasonable expenses for your travel to IMT interviews. Candidates must ensure that they travel to their interview in the most cost effective manner and claims must be submitted no later than 28 calendar days after the interview.

There is a policy regarding candidate expenses detailing the principles of reimbursing expenses and the limits on claims. This is a national policy which covers all specialty recruitment across the UK; the policy and details about how to register and make a claim via the expenses system are located in the resource bank of the MDRS website.
