    Hi Lizzie, I'm applying this year for the 6yr foundation programme with relatively modest GCSE and strong AS's and A level predictions. I just wanted to ask how you find the PBL style teaching at UEA as I heard there is quite a strong focus on it. Also, is there any extra support if you feel like youre struggling with your studies? Thank you!
    I'm really hoping for an interview from UEA soon; it looks like an amazing university.

    Hey! I got in with ABBb as my A levels and that seems to be the normal on the course. PBL is really fun. At first it can be quite daunting but it's good being independent in your learning. I've gained some really good organisational and revision skills.

    There's tonnes of support. You have your personal adviser, the senior adviser team and there's the student support service where you can go if you're struggling. They provide loads of support. Whether you need financial advice, or pastoral and they also run tutoring sessions if you're struggling with maths skills or something. The uni's really supportive.

    Hi, not sure on the exact date but, we were given a very short notice before the interview. It was around mid February - March time. My interview invitation was given around mid feb which took place on the 1st of March. There are still interviews going on for the A100 cohort as I walked by yesterday so be patient and Good luck !

    We have finished semester one which included the maths biology and chemistry. Chemistry was basic AS and GCSE while Biology was quite different. So it did include AS knowledge along with some new topics. Maths was higher end gcse going all the way to AS but it was not to difficult as 50% was coursework. However, in semester 2 there is no chemistry and maths, it's just med and further bio. But the biology is at A2-level. Along side PBL, we also do get training and shifts in semester 2 as healthcare assistants and we also do get clinical exposure which I find amazing for a foundation year. Hope that helped you in some sort of ways :P

    Not heavily, there are people in my course who got fairly low ukcat score but that didnt stop them from getting an interview and an offer at the end!
