    No problem! Best of luck with your application(s)!

    They have an assessment form that they have to fill out, where they rate things such as written and oral communication skills. I haven't seen the form, so I am not sure what is on it, but I know they have an open-ended part as well. Hopefully someone who has completed or seen the reference forms can answer your question! The NOSM website has some advice for selecting references: https://www.nosm.ca/education/md-program/admissions/admission-requirements/ I hope this helps!

    Interviiew invite before the 8 march

    That is certainly a tough choice to make. To add to what was said above, would it be too late to switch classes after March 8th? If not, you may want to wait until then in case you do get offered an interview. Also, depending on how biochemistry is going, if you do not think you will get a minimum grade of B in it, you may want to switch classes as a minimum of a B is required to be admitted. Try to consider how staying in the class and switching classes may affect your application(s) next year to try to arrive at the best decision. Perhaps meet with an academic advisor for additional advice? Regardless, try to reflect on what part(s) of your application may have been weak so you can improve for next year if necessary. I wish you the best of luck!
