Manchester Biomedical Sciences Interview Watch
How common is it to receive an interview for the science courses in particular, are they just handed out based on a decent personal statement?
Additionally, i was wondering if anyone could give me a heads up on how the interviews are as this will be my first interview at a university and i am a generally nervous/ shy person.
I am aware there will be questions based on my personal statement but are there typically any trick questions and will my introverted personality/nerves result in an automatic decline of my offer?

The interview was really chill, one on one with an academic in the lab with a bunch of other people around having their interviews as well. I was asked what had inspired me to choose biomedical sciences, and that was pretty much the only question I was asked. It was more like a chat, we talked about the placement opportunities and module choices, and about antibiotic resistance, since I had mentioned in my PS that I did my Individual project on it. It was very informal and more like a friendly chat than an interview.
Hope this puts you at ease and good luck!
