    Had my interview today. The group task was difficult and unfortunately I think I made myself look very mediocre. I think it's a difficult environment to make an impact but I guess that's the point of it. The panel interview of course is something that you can plan for more and I did feel more comfortable and confident there.

    Question though - apparently there are barely any lectures in the (very nice looking) Life Sciences building and they usually take place in Southampton General Hospital from 1st year. Does this work out well? I ask because I don't like the idea of medical students being segregrated from the others who'll have lectures on campus from the start. I like the universities like Leicester which have their medical school on campus, and just wondered if the fact you learn off campus means you don't really interact with non medical students right from first year.

    We never have lectures in Life Sciences. In year 1 and 2 half of your time will be spent at SGH and the other half will be at Highfield in the nurses building.

    Being "on" or "off" campus for lectures makes no difference. You don't meet people by just being in a lecture on campus :nah:. You meet them through halls, societies and events etc. When you're at Highfield Campus, you're in lectures anyway so it's not like you're going to be waiting in the cafe to meet people!

    There are plenty of opportunities to get to know non medics if you want to :yes:.

    Why do you think the group task didn't go well? Is it does difficult to get your point across or to speak or was it just the nature of the scenario given?

    Please be careful not to go into too m uch detail of the task. Some people haven't had it yet and it is unfair to give some people an advantage that others didn't have. This is also against TSR rules.

    Ok fair enough, I just had the perception that you'd kind of make friends travelling to and from campus by walking/taking the bus etc. from halls

    Well medics are in most of the time, lots of other courses are in rarely. It's not like everyone leaves and returns together. :sadnod: Start times vary, locations vary. Walking to campus is not where people meet people usually. :nah:

    You can do, but they'll probably stop you. Remember your interview is only 20 minutes so you'll want to answer more than 5 questions in that time!!!

    Would it be correct to say that southampton use an integrated format of teaching and not traditional? Or do they use both

    Hi, just wondering but if you're a graduate applicant who has not received an invitation yet for the 24th Feb interview, does it pretty much mean its the end of the road for the application? They normally send out the interview invites two weeks in advance isn't it?
