    Ahh go, go for it! It's a great course (as I'm sure you know), ridiculously hard work to get into, but when you make it, it's so worth it.

    Did you apply last year? Where have you applied this time? I'm a fresher medic at Soton by the way.

    Congrats. Nice of you to say that about my username I remember my only interview was at SGUL - it was painful. If you get one there, expect to be put under pressure and you'll make it. Oh and don't get there sweating and 30mins late like me... so awkward.

    One thing that I realised when I got here though, is that it's just a university course. Granted, it's very different to everything else. But it's still just a degree, and when I look around at the other freshers, I think everybody's pretty normal. The level of competition, and the no. of hurdles makes medicine seem as though you have to be some sort of genius with amazing social skills to get in. Really, most of us are pretty normal kids (many lucky to be from private schools as you'd expect), who jumped the hurdles, but also tbh struck lucky to just get the offer they needed. I really think the hurdles are there mainly because it's so over-subscribed, not b/c med students have to be amazing.

    Hey fellow Nigerians, I'm emmanuel from cross river. Im planning on applying to med school. Im doing a levels now. The problem is i don't know if my o level results will be good enough for the schools. i did both IGCSE and WAEC and got 1A* 3As 1B and 3A1s 5Bs respectively. Do you think these are good enough to get me an admission. Im planning on applying to Kings, Leeds and Nottingham.
    Thanks

    Haha I don't mind the monologue tbh.
    OMG you were 30 mins late? And they still let you do the interview? That's kind of them. Did you get an offer from them in the end?
    Yeah I've heard so many stories abt SGUL interviews . Someone even said it was the worst day of their life haha.
    Haha yeah I totally get what you mean. Medicine is just another degree but the whole admissions process makes it difficult for people to understand that. The only thing is to try and get in and then everything else becomes normal.

    It all depends on what the university wants. I strongly advice you check their websites and find out abt their equivalent GCSE requirements for international students. Or you could just email the universities and ask directly.

    Read the info they have on the universities' websites. Then phone the specific faculties if you need clarification: they're used to answering questions like this.

    Yea honestly. I think it may have been a little later than 30mins. It wasn't a 'fashionably late' thing, there was a train delay, and then I didn't have a map so I got lost and couldn't find the med school from the station. Then when I finally got there, the staff gave me the wrong directions so I couldn't find the specific room I was meant to be. I eventually found a med student who took me to the right room. I was so frustrated that day, and sweating in my suit, my goodness I was so angry. And I couldn't give them a load of excuses, because that would have made me come across as argumentative, so I just apologised and kept quiet.

    They sent us in batches, I was joined to next one b/c I was late. Seemed to take it well lol...

    Didn't get an offer though. It really was a horrible interview, but if I was expecting it to be 'talk for 2 minutes. Go' sort of thing, then I think it would have gone better. I'd been rehearsing conversations...

    OMG haha oh wow that sounds like my first day at college except for the fact that i didn't take the train there
    Oh yeah I probably would have done the same thing yeah rather than trying to give all those excuses. But the most important thing is they let you do the interview.
    OMG yeah one question is asked at each station except the first station and you are required to talk for abt 5 mins. The interviewer says nothing else apart from repeating the question if you want him/her to. Haha so i'm guessing you didn't use up all the mins and then you just stayed there not talking till the time was up? That must have been really awkward haha. Imagine you going through all that trouble and then getting a horrible interview.
    So you got an offer from Southampton instead? Oh yeah coz they didn't do interviews then. Urgh lucky you. Was that your first time applying?

    Oh you've done a SGUL interview also? How'd that go? It was so awkward sometimes, some of the facial expressions they gave were so robotic and unemotional, it didn't feel like a natural conversation. Actually there were two friendly ladies, and one normal medical student. All the others were high-pressure.
    yep, at the time, Soton's main focus was personal statements, after a UKCAT cutoff (around 625? I think). That was why I applied really, luckily that decision paid off. And I've come straight from school.
