As with your application, once your interview has been completed, feedback on your interview assessment and application status will be available.

Appointability status and ranking

Once all scores for interviews for the region for which you are in contention have been verified and compiled, you will be informed by email in one of three ways:

  • you will be made an offer in accordance with your rank and preferences
  • you will be notified that your application is not appointable and will progress no further in the round
  • you will be notified that you are appointable but cannot be offered one of your programme preferences at that stage and so have been placed on the reserve list should higher ranked candidates reject their offer.

Interview performance (scores)

After all regions have finished interviews and begun making offers, the JRCPTB will release feedback to your Oriel account regarding your interview performance; this is normally either on or just after the first offers deadline. This will include the scores awarded to your application form, scores at each of the interview stations, your 'raw' interview score, and your final, overall score.

At this time, 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.

You will be sent an email when this feedback is released.

Further feedback

It may be possible to obtain feedback on your application and/or interview performance beyond that described above. Once interviews and offers are completed, contact the region at which your interview was held to request further feedback.

Information on gaining further advice and support can be found on the NHS/HEE specialty training website.

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 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 - an example of this could be an essential eligibility requirement not required at time of interview, such as an ALS certificate.

Regardless of why you are being asked to supply the document, it is very important that you meed 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 CT1 interview, based on the cheapest mode of transport available; unreasonable expenses will not be reimbursed.

For more information on the provision of expenses - handled by the interviewing region - please visit their website and/or contact their recruitment helpdesk.
