I wish the medical students spoke to us before, they kinda just sat there and giggled to each other and with the long wait times it was a bit off putting tbh.

(Original post by Stanimirr)Hi everyone,

I hope those of you who have applied have been successful!

I'm not applying until October but wanted to ask how people feel about the fact that you start with a two-week summer school and then go straight into second year of the 5-year programme? My friends who are medics (at other unis) keep telling me that's fine as in first year they cover a lot of the stuff we will have already done in a biomed (or similar) degree but I just wanted to see what y'all thought.

Cheers







I was wondering the same. I went to the open day in Cambridge today and the first two years there are completely tailored towards getting graduates through the first three years of the standard course. They are kept separate and sit all the same exams that everyone sits on the standards course but for 2 years. How does that even work in Liverpool? It kind of looks not like a graduate entry programme but like a year two entry programme with a summer school?!

Anyone any thoughts on the summer school and then streamlining direct into second year? Is that normal? I haven’t heard of any other schools doing this. Does this mean we don’t sit any of the exams which first year students sit? I am pretty sure at Cambridge they sit ALL the exams (first and second and third year standard course) in the first two years. How does that work in Liverpool?

Exactly what my thoughts are! In most places, you merge after 18 months/two years in which the graduates complete what would be the first three years of a 5-year course but completely separately.

From their website, it looks like you only sit the exams that undergrads sit at the end of second year.

From the additional info section, ‘Possible MMI stations might assess your personal statement/values and attitudes, team working, ethics, healthcare awareness and insight, learning from caring contribution or work experience, and numeracy in practice’

In the additional info section I have been sent for this years cycle, that particular sentence ends with work experience. There is no mention of numeracy in practice. Hence my question.

Perhaps they’ve done away with it then, but I’m unsure what they’d replace it with. Either way, if the university haven’t told you then there’s not really any reasonable way of finding out, current applicants can’t divulge info after having the interview.

Can someone tell me what to do if you don’t have your GCSE certificates for the interview? Did they check everyone’s?
Yes, they do check everyones! They said at the end, because some people didn't have them, to contact the university of provide them within 1 week of the interview. I think if you email them, they will advise you better! You can get new ones? Although I think they are quite expensive:confused:

Why do they need 4 copies of our personal statements? I forgot to print out mine and my interview is tomorrow morning. And I am still on a train to Liverpool lol
