    Do they use personal statement during interview? For my other two unis I got interviews at they don't look at personal statements at all.

    Yes. In the individual interview they will have a copy to refer to.

    Hi

    I was just reading the article about medicine interviews, and I realised that Southampton interviews require a written task, a group interview and an individual interview!!

    Could I have a bit more information on these please

    It doesn't require a written task.

    Interview is a 2 interviewer interview based on your PS

    Group task you cannot prepare until the day (when they'll give you time) and they don't like people knowing what it is :nah:.

    Hi does anybody know if the 2 person panel interview is 100% based on your personal statement or if they also ask anything outside the PS? Also is there anything I should do to prepare for the group task?

    This is from the website:
    In addition to academic entry requirements, during the selection process, the selectors will look at your UCAS personal statement and reference for evidence of non-academic criteria.
    You will be asked to demonstrate that you:

    • are self-motivated and have initiative
    • are literate and articulate
    • are able to interact successfully with others
    • have learnt from your experiences of interacting with people in health or social care settings - this may draw on what you have learnt from your own life experiences (e.g. friends and family), or more formalised activity (e.g. paid or voluntary work, or work shadowing)

    In addition you will need to show you understand and respect the NHS values. The NHS constitution outlines the values of those working in the NHS and our selection methods aim to identify people who have those values of compassion, team working and treating others with respect and dignity.

    Nothing to do for the group task.

    The interviewers can really ask whatever they like. They have your PS for reference but everyone will have a slightly different experience of what gets asked.

    Hi, I just read somewhere that last year Southampton interviewed all applicants for medicine? Is this true? Surely there were some not invited to interview? I'm quite confused. Thanks x

    Of course they didn't interview everyone. Southampton only started interviewing last year which is what might have confused you.
