So clear, so detailed. what else could you have asked for.

Could you have ever thought (in your wildest dreams) that one of the reasons for you not getting shortlisted could be that you did not meet their standards.

Bravo. Excellent stuff from Oxford deanery.

Beats Royal college's feedback by a mile.

:lol: :lol:

what feedback would be helpful?

'other people were better than you'

'you should have applied for surgery'

'you were good but we didn't have enough jobs to offer you one'

'you were crap'

'although your name began with an F we were only looking for people who's name ended in a G'

'cheese.  it's alright when it's melted, but raw?  wtf?!'

'you clearly demonstrated that you were aware of the audit cycle and had participated in an audit that sounded like it may have been ok.  unfortunately we had applications from 13 other doctors working at your hospital who all described an identical audit and all 14 of you said that you 'singlehandedly and without the help of anyone else generated the seed of an idea for an audit project that would end all audit projects by wIthouT the hlep of neaone else.....'

'yeah ok.  there were more applicants than jobs.  we had 2 people we wanted to employ but they both got jobs elsewhere, so we offered the next 38 people jobs.  you were number 39.'

'the PCT has withdrawn funding for this post'

'when asked the question 'what did you learn in situation x?' you said 'i learnt y.'  we were looking for people who said 'i learnt z.'  sorry.'

'you scored X.  the average score of people who were offered posts was Y'

I agree....but they are creating the false hope that one might find out what could be improved....!

is it not the same in the college exams...?

then they should stop giving feedback out... in both occasions...!
