    Hey Shazia,

    As long as you met the entry requirements, you've got a chance. But remember that it doesn't matter what grades you get above the entry requirements. Past that, the uni only looks at non-academic criteria. Your motivation to study medicine, your understanding of the career and course, etc. For the BM6 program, your personal statement and interview performance are really the keys, so focusing on nailing those and you could definitely do it!

    Perhaps don't say "old people" in your personal statement but as long as you meet the social requirements there is no reason why not!

    It all comes down to your personal statement. Look into their non academic entry requirements and get started on your PS asap x

    No. UKCAT is only used to compare very similar applicants for BM6 after interviews.

    It isn't used for BM5 either but they do use the UKCAT for applicants then.

    Does Southampton have group interviews? If so, if you're allowed to say, are these tasks just a discussion or a building exercise etc...?

    You're not allowed to know much but you can know that it's a discussion.
