    Well yeah seeing as theres only 45 offers! D:
    I see what you mean, but I was more getting at the point of it's the strength of the people being interviewed (i.e. if you can excel at interview then there should be no worry as to the number of people being interviewed)

    Is that makes sense?

    This is something you're supposed to check way before you apply. No you can't be overqualified. There's no might about it.
    Ok you numpty, the reason why I said "might" and "not completely" is because I know that you either get rejected or put onto the normal 5 year course in 2 out of the four universities in the UK that offer foundation courses for medicine. So I would be right to assume that there might be a chance that he/she has overqualified. The whole point of these foundation courses is to wider access to those who haven't been able to achieve the grades, and who fulfill the right criteria. In essence, whats the point of applying if you can achieve straight As and apply for the normal course?

    Yes you can be overqualified. But it depends on the universities guidelines as to how they respond to such an applicant.

    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.
    To be honest with you, four months down the line after submitting an application you should know whether you are eligible or not. Blindly or not, you should have made sure, or else you simply wasted a application on ucas that you could have made to a different university.

    I know and it's not even like you said anything controversial all you said is it's your first choice.
    I gave you a plus rep to try and even it out.

    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.
    Excuse me, my point wasn't made out of stupidity but unawareness :mad:

    My first point is that you shouldn't have assumed this was the case at soton. Secondly if this is truly what you meant then you should've been clearer as it's not what it sounds like when you read your post. Also you're wrong in this case. That doesn't exist in Sotons case.


    And you shouldn't be so hostile. Needless to say a short temper is not a very good character trait for a doctor.


    LMAO this is funny. This thread is the total opposite of last years.

    I was initially shocked that you had been so oblivious to, what I felt, was a rude response and thats why I gave you full explanation as to why I used the word "Might". I'm not going to bother answering to your second reply, because everything you say turns into some dumb debate that quite frankly, I can't be arsed to retaliate to. It was a one sentence answer, that I had quickly posted to the guy, and it was blown way out of proportion. I'm not short-tempered nor hostile, and I can't quite understand the amount of negativity i've been recieving on this thread.

    Thanks for apologising. Good bye.
