    They will post you a form after you apply and you send your evidence directly to the uni, not through UCAS

    They will tell you the evidence you need but I think that last one is just an honesty thing.

    Right guys and gals i need an honest opinion about whether i should apply for this programme.

    Stats:
    GCSE's: 3A* 6A and 1B
    Achieved A levels: A*AA(geography,chemistry and maths)
    AS levels: Biology(B), Physics(B) and General Studies(A)
    A2 levels taken this year: A2 Biology and Physics. Predicted both A's

    UKCAT: 565
    VR(510), QR(710), AR(510) and DA(530)
    Band 1(Shame it wont be used)
    Does Southampton use the UKCAT for selection for interview???IS this score any good???thats why i'm applying for liverpool, lancaster and bristol dont hav a choice really!
    Plus does Biology have to be studied in the same year as Chemistry???

    The UKCAT isn't used for pre-interview selection apparently, as mentioned a few posts back, so youre ok. Also your stats are very good! this must be advantageous than someone applying with BBC, but not sure. Ring them up for clarification on your last point.

    Hi Beth,
    Can I ask if better achieved A-levels play a part in the selection for interview. Also how many interviewers are there? and finally (promise last question ) is your personal statement score added to the interview score, or is it a clean slate for everyone post interview.
    Thanks

    I am pretty sure both biology and chemistry have to be studied together but you should call up and ask to be on the safe side, you dont want to waste an application!

    No UKCAT us not used. Chem and bio don't need to have been studied together but you do need to have taken 3 a levels in 1 year (if I remember rightly). Give them a call to double check but I think that may rule you out :sadnod:.

    Hey!

    Nope. Better A levels or even achieved a levels are not preferred over someone predicted BBC. There are 2 interviewers. I think they're added together. But lots of changes in BM5 and BM4 applications may mean this has changed. But not to my knowledge.

    UKCAT not used unless they have 2 students to chose between so don't worry

    They accept scottish highers for BM5 so I assume they do for BM6. Phone when you get back and check.

    They don't have to be together :nah: but you do need to have taken 3 a levels at once I believe to prove you can handle the workload :sadnod:.

    It's how they keep it fair. If they wanted AAA they'd ask for it. And if they wanted grades in hand, they'd ask for that too.

    Not necessarily. Have you ever applied before? Did you reuse your statement? I understand that UCAS will do an investigation and decide if there has been any plagiarism. If they decide there has they will tell your choices, but if they can see that it is reasonable that you haven't plagiarised, they won't.

    I would assume that if they're convinced you have copied then your choices could certainly chose to act on this quite seriously. Especially for something like Medicine.

    Do you think this is because you did the same things or did you borrow from your brothers statement a little?

    I am not quite sure how Southampton deal with it. You could either wait and see or give them a call and ask?

    Then it will be down to the university as to whether this is acceptable and minor or whether this impacts your integrity. I would think it'll be decided on a case by case basis so you'll need to wait and see what they decide I'm afraid.

    Hi Neostigmine,

    I just wanted to know what happens with the application process straight after you apply to this course? Does Southampton send an acknowledgement email or eligibility form or do they wait till everyone has applied?

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure they wait until everyone has applied, which isn't long to wait anyway

    Some people get an acknowledgement but this has been a little inconsistent in the past. It usually comes in the form of a postcard. Then in the next few weeks you can expect to receive your eligibility form :yes:.

    It's a strange process with long periods of waiting so I am afraid that is something you'll have to get used to :sadnod:.
