    Maybe it's because you were more confident this time? But I hope it all goes well for you come March x

    Thanks,

    Welcome!

    Do feel free to go back and read some of the pages before. There are a lot of answers in there to questions you might not have thought of yet

    Are you thinking of applying? I've completed the BM6 and gone onto BM5 so do feel free to ask any questions you can't find the answers to and I'll see if I/we can help.

    And yes. I am currently in a health related degree (first year) and I've been planning on entering a post grad medicine course afterwards but something tells me I may be 'burnt-out' on the completion of my degree. I've been contemplating applying to BM6 (would have to be for 13-14 year?), but again, I remain unsure. I am also wary of my age (19) and time's ticking by.

    You won't be eligible I am afraid. Graduate applicants are not accepted into BM6 as it is widening access. Time is not ticking by at all. I am 23 and in my first year of BM5. There are 30/40 year olds in the class.

    You can apply to BM4 which is Soton's post-grad programme and more info can be found here. You'll need an upper 2nd class honours in any subject, a pass in A level chemistry or in chemistry and biology/human biology at AS level and C's at the core GCSE subjects.

    Good luck with your studies and I hope you find your route into medicine and I am sorry that it unfortunately isn't here!

    I wouldn't have thought so, seeing as they continue through until mid-March

    The interviews are still going ahead the last ones i'm aware of are on the 28th of March. I had about 2 weeks notice for mine, I would assume this is similar for all candidates.

    Ah, my apologies if I wasn't clear but I meant that I was considering leaving my current course.

    And thanks again for your detailed post!

    Okay. I'd still check with BM6. And you will probably be questioned on it at interview as Medicine is a long course. If you do bm6 as well it's 6 years. In fact:


    Stay on your course
    graduate in 13/14
    apply to graduate courses
    4 year grad course
    qualify in 17/18

    Vs

    switch
    Leave current course
    apply for entry to 13/14 BM6
    over 20 applicants per place so it's tough
    get a place
    6 years of med school
    qualify in 19/20


    The BM6 year is nice. Quite a heavy coursework load (ie there is always something to do) but as there are only lessons at most 3 days in a week it doesn't feel overwhelming but that changes in BM5 so it's not always straight going.

    Not trying to put you off just making things clear about life inside! If someone really wants to do medicine I don't see why they shouldn't get to do it.

    Hello guys, thought i'd say hello.
    Been lurking for some time.

    I have an interview on thr 29th of Feb. Trying not to get too excited about it! I'm feeling pretty good about it though, I had a bm6 interview last year so I know its pretty laid back.

    Also Ascendansy you can apply for the BM5 as a graduate, some of the interviews I help out at are for postgraduates and mature non graduates who have been to university before. Its 5 years as opposed to the 4 years that the BM4 would be but it is another option. The students opting for the route told me that personally they prefered it especially with the competitiveness of the BM4 programs to get a place.

    And also congratulations Carl_senior

    I was a pretty dedicated member of last years thread. I remember you too, but you were lucky (jammy) enough to get an unconditional! haha

    I haven't had the confirmation email yet so no idea what time-ish the interview will be. Would be nice to put a face to the name!

    They did indeed. The lady on the phone said they would also confirm via email.
