Yeah I was just looking at last years medicine applicants stalking thread and saw some people with UKCAT scores similar to mine get an offer. I've got a good PS and reference so hopefully that will get me through.

How much does southampton care about the ukcat for the BM6 is there a cut off score? i did really badly got 565... should i bother applying? I got ABBB for AS and im predicted A*AAb

Oh darn. But that's not too bad. I mean, it could have been worser.

I had a friend of mine who applied to Soton BM6 with a UKCAT of 550 odd last year and got an offer. So all is not lost, yet.

The UKCAT isn't used for BM6, you just have to take it. So don't worry

I do as I've done one! But I wouldn't be worrying about that just yet because it's based a lot on your personal statement (so don't lie lol) so until that's done....

...It also depends who you get. It could be students/lecturers/local head of VI forms/members of the public.


On a side note, I START BM5 TODAY! ^_^ The BM6 year goes so fast :x

Congratulations for getting a place on BM6 course last year How was it ? Great, I hope ?

Also, if you don't mind, could you please list me a few questions which they asked on the Interview ? I'm really worried about the Interview ( if I get one ), and would find it mighty helpful if I could get an idea on the types of questions you were asked.

Thank you.

It was amazing Seriously don't worry about it, they're not until January - March so you've got at least 4 months. They're just standard medicine questions anyway.

If anything they're increased. Loads of resit students in my year.You'll show maturity and life experience etc. It definitely doesn't lower them
Apparently, you're only allowed to resit one a level......Is this true?:confused:

Admissions told me resits are fine as long as they're within the 2 A-level years

do your gcses matter for BM6? 'cause i got 5a's and 5a*'s, and for nottingham I'm not allowed to apply for the medicine with a foundation year because I meet the gcse grade requirements of the 5 year course, but i'm only predicted ABC so I can't apply because my predicted grades aren't high enough.

Well, for the BM5 Medicine course, which is 5-years, you are only allowed one A-Level re-sit. So I'm assuming that it'll be the same for the BM6 course too.

Haha well said! I don't think my tutor really understands the idea behind BM6.

Anyway, on a lighter note, how's everyone getting on with their applications? (only 3 weeks till the deadline! )
Almost done. My PS is finished, which ive given to my tutor, but I doubt its going to need editing. I did almost 7 drafts of it! You?

It's my reference I'm worried about. I've got no idea what school policy is on them, and I really dont want the school's "UCAS person" (I don't know her title lol) to do it. She sort of knows me, but I wouldn't want to put my future in my hands...which sounds weird, I know.

If you don't mind me asking, did they ask you why you chose the BM6 course and not the BM5 course, and also, what reason did you provide ?

Thanks in advance for your response.

You can redo 1 subject usually without question. Any more and they'll want to know why.

A minimum of five GCSEs at grades C or above, including mathematics, English and double award science (or equivalent). You may offer qualifications which are equivalent to GCSE.

There is no "maximum grades".

I don't mean to sound rude, or come across harshly but I am not going to answer these and I hope no one else does. I didn't have these answers when I applied but I managed. The answer to "why BM6?" is a hugely personal, and you should already know your own answer. You don't (despite what your college tells you) need practice for interviews in the way you'll think. Make sure you're comfortable talking about yourself and you know your personal statement, be sure of your own reasons to apply, read up about the uni and have a list of things about you that you want the interviewers to know before you leave. That is it.

The way I practised was:

List A - Write a list of things they need to know about me before I leave


List B - Internet search of "Medical School Questions"

Take 1st question on list B and answer incorporating the 1st point on list A. Then go to the 2nd point on list A, and answer the same question. Repeat until list A is finished. Move onto question 2.

Also you don't want to hear someone else's answers. They'll cloud your own and it will be obvious when they question you more. And SERIOUSLY stop worrying about the interview until you get one!!!!

;D ;D ;D

They don't look at the UKCAT for BM6!!! Just make sure you have a good reason to apply for the BM6 and not BM5

Seriously they don't use it A guy with 565 may have got in, but so would a 700 and a 500. You need to make sure that your grades aren't the only reasons to apply though as they don't look too kindly on that as that isn't quite the point. But still, good luck with the application!
