    I worked it out at around 150 - could be more, but doubt it would be less bearing in mind that there were 800+ applicants.
    No I meant how many interviews have gone out so far not total they will interview? Surely it will be more than 150 applicants if last year they interviewed 200 out of 700?

    Of course, they interview into mid march. Early offers are given out mid feb with the rest being at the end of march.

    There haven't been any offers yet! Not for BM6 anyway.
    Oh right! Just made the assumption Thanks for clearing that up, was expecting a rejection

    I read somewhere on this thread that they hand out offers dependent on how highly you score, so the top 45 get offers. Wouldn't that be unfair to those interviewed late march, since they would have already given out half the offers by then, and there'd be more pressure / expectation for these applicants to impress?

    Well from last year I was told that they only gave out early offers to like 3/5 people (these people would have scored near full marks on all areas I would have thought). The majority however will be scored, then ranked at the end of the interview process with the top 45 getting offers.

    That make sense?

    Just a query, can you over qualify for the bm6 course?

    I know that for the 6yr medicine course in Nottingham if you meet any of the requirements for the 5yr you cannot apply for the 6yr, but I wasn't sure about in Southampton?

    Good question, i'm not completely sure myself :confused:, but the offer they give is perhaps an indicator that you might not be eligible if you do overqualify...

    This is something you're supposed to check way before you apply. No you can't be overqualified. There's no might about it.

    You cannot be over qualified for BM6, though they may ask you why you're applying for it if you're suitable for BM5. They will sometimes even ask BM6ers if they want to go straight into BM5 if they've got the grades and there is space.


    Stop negging each other. Eventually you might be class mates and you need to support each other or you will never make it through medicine. You are supposed to be empathic and patient people! Be nice You'll be bm6 besties eventually.


    Never attribute to malice that which can be equally explained by stupidity.

    I don't know what you're trying to imply, but I did look into the courses i chose and didn't just blindly apply for medicine. I was asking that question because I got the correct entry requirements however my teachers have predicted me higher grades due to the other courses I have applied for.

    But thanks for answering my question.

    Mine did the same (AAA), but I got rejected from both my A100 courses!

    I don't think it matters if you have been predicted the highest grades or the grades required (BCC), but I think for the foundation courses at Nottingham and East Anglia it plays some part in whether you are rejected or not.

    Hope this helps!
