    I think we are just sent a letter to confirm which of the eligibility criteria we meet.

    Soton will send out a letter in Nov asking for proof of eligibility.

    Ahhh the golden question! Reflect reflect reflect. You need to show that you've got promise, and that you're eloquent. Tone and writing style is important. but there isn't one single thing that makes you stand out unfortunately!

    I applied to this course in 2 years ago, got an interview then didnt get in. so i went of and did a premed course and got a distinction (soton accepts it and some other med schools). but im currently taking a gap year and retaking my a levels (which where pooorrr). but basically I am going to apply to the 5 year course..question can you apply to both bm6 and the 5 year course, and do they accept retake students?

    I believe they accept one GCSE retake or one A-level retake...

    I don't think they accept someone who is retaking all their A-levels..

    You can apply to both no problem. They may want to know why you've taken so long to do your A levels though and that might not work in your favour. Phone admissions and ask them.

    Hi ya,

    I'am an A2 student and wants to go for medicine. But unfortunately my AS grades turned out as ABBC and the predicted grades for this year is ABB. I really want to do medicine, and i heard about this foundation course. So do have any suggestions.
    Hey! sorry I haven't replied sooner!

    ask your teachers why they've predicted you ABB - with AS grades like yours, retakes could really get them up to A's so just check and see - a prediction of AAB will be looked at by 5 year courses

    As for applying to the foundation course, are you just looking at it as a way of 'getting in easily' or do you have genuine reasons/meet all the criteria? It's worth looking at

    If the answer to above is yes then why not, but don't rule out any other course, you never know until you try! x

    Depends why you're applying.... if it's just a grades/UKCAT thing then no. If you have other reasons and meet the criteria, yep.

    What's wrong with your UKCAT? Why the sad faces? there are a few uni's who don't even use it, Southampton BM5 only use it as a cut off of the bottom 25%.

    There are only 30 places on BM6, and there is an interview and more applicants per place. It's harder to get in!
