    I mean you already have an eligible degree under your belt, what if you quit biomed after this year and apply ?
    Then again having two degrees and a strong UKCAT/BMAT would benefit

    Would anyone recommend going on an interview prep course?
    I don't know whether to go on one or not...not sure if it'll be worth it really.
    If anyone has been on one could you let us know your experience and whether you'd recommend it or not.
    Thanks!

    I highly recommend Medic Portal. Either the group session where you get a mock as well, or the 1 on 1 interview tutoring. They have pretty decent insight into all of the med school selection processes including grad entry. It can't replace your own study and prep but it gives you confidence and a chance to practice answering questions.

    Don't bother spending the money... You get as good a practice just finding a willing friend to practice with or just ask someone if you can just talk through your answers for the standard questions you think might come up.
    I actually found a friend through this forum and we would Skype and talk through everything we could think of. Then on the day it was really natural and not rehearsed/sounded like everyone else's answers.
    As long as you can talk to another human being well you'll be fine

    On here, lots of googling. Thinking of the obvious stuff they will ask you, i wouldn't read too may books etc as you'll end up using their answers if you're not careful!

    Hi! Has anyone who has applied to both grad and undergrad courses at the same uni (for example Barts) receive 2 separate interviews? Or do they interview you once for the grad program and then decide where to put you?

    Any advice appreciated, thanks!

    I was wondering wether it would be worth applying for both, I heard people who apply for the graduate get offers for the undergrad if they meet the requirements

    I am a GEM applicant, and Exeter/Plymouth do only look at your GAMSAT results to decide whether to offer you an interview or not. I've spoken to the admission offices as well. This is a copy and paste from their FAQ (Exeter)


    On the other hand, if you have completed a degree programme or it has been more than two years since you completed your full A levels, you will be considered as a non-direct school leaver. In this instance you will be required to take the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) in order to be considered. Your performance in GAMSAT will be the only necessary information on your application. Your performance in a prior degree or past secondary school will not be taken into consideration. Applicants who achieve less than 59 overall are unlikely to be invited to attend an interview. Threshold scores in each section will need to be met.
    Thanks alot for your reply. My apologies for the late reply.
    That is very assuring! That means the GAMSAT plays a big role here.
    This is not a surprise to be frank as the GAMSAT is certainly not an easy exam to do well in.
    I am not much happier after hearing this Thank you.

    Does anyone who's interviewed previously at SGUL know if it's usually a single question per station? Been practising and my interview books recommend a maximum of 2.5-3 mins per answer but I don't want overrun trying to use the 5 minutes appropriately, especially if unbeknownst to me they are planning asking a second question that I don't leave time for.

    Anyone any experience with this? I know each station is essentially 'themed' but unsure if it's a single question/task or multiple.

    They're wrong. Leicester, Newcastle, Exeter, and Plymouth were all happy to accept my application when I was in my first year of biomed.

    Did you sit the same MMI we did? Graduates didn't need a pen and paper, was all spoken or acted out
