    Can you possibly find out what's gone on there and if they're still giving out grad interviews? I'm a grad waiting for a bm5 interview. Thank you!!

    They're still doing the BM5 Grad interview day as we've had an email recruiting students to help during the day :yes:. I am not sure why some have been invited to the earlier date. it may be that there is space on that day or that there isn't space on the right interview date and so they've had to move people around.

    I can try to find out but I am not sure how easy this info will be to get!

    It's really relaxed. Read your PS, read up on the university and the course. You'll be fine :yes:.

    On my way home now, never knew I'd actually have to use that number they put on the email. They were very nice about it though and have said I can get another date for interview. They said it may be 13th of Feb though which is of course a grad day? And I'm just a little old year 13 😳 but still happy they seem flexible with the situation

    Don't be. It's really relaxed and you'll have time to prepare on the day. Lots of people enjoy it and everyone says it wasn't worth worrying about :yes:.

    Ah okay fair enough, not gonna ask for anything else then!
    Was it generally a good interview? Like were they quite nice and not too pushy?

    Did they say you couldn't speak about the panel section too?

    It's against TSR rules to ask for details of an interview. it's not fair for you know things that your competition didn't get to know :no:.

    The panel is a standard panel interview. No surprises there :nah:

    There are so many options for SSU that I don't think I can remember them all.

    In semester 1 you make an academic poster on a public health issue intervention as part of a group. There are lots of issues to choose from like teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, COPD and smoking etc etc
    In semester 2 it is humanities so you can do life drawing, videography, photography, writing

    In semester 3 you do a literature review and a presentation of evidence on a topic of your choosing
    In semester 4 you teach a class of 1st years.

    These may have switched around a little now, but it was how we did it. I think the teaching has been moved to final year instead of semester 4 and I think they spend time preparing you for your project in 3rd year.


    Then during your clinical years you can chose a load of different stuff. Languages, dissection, emergency medicine, renal medicine, communication skills.... each module is different in how it is run so there is a variety of skills taught.




    As for pros and cons, I think that sounds a lot like a standard medicine interview question and while I am happy to answer questions on specifics, feel like it is a bit unfair to just give a list!!
