This course is so competitive. 500/600 applications for 32 places :eek:
Don’t worry too much about the numbers


I know they are intimidating but the flip side is, someone has to get an interview, why not you?

I wouldn’t regard myself as anything special but I’m here and medicine is a degree just like any other. There are really good points about it and I wouldn’t do anything else aside from it, but I’ve seen you’re not expected to be perfect just show you’d be a competent med student/ doctor.

No worries! Just make it specific to you e.g. I liked the fact the Year zero required you to complete presentations because I really wanted to develop my confidence during that year in a small group setting completing the rest of the degree, in the future.

And it wasn’t a lie. The year definitely helped me in presentations in subsequent years, including my masters that I’m completing
What sort of presentations did you give?

The interviews will not be sent until mid-febuary. I am reapplying for BM6 and last year they sent two batches of the interview which were on 14th Feb 2019 and 21st Feb 2019.

Did anyone receive a confirmation email to say that that your eligibility forms were received. When I applied last year I remember getting one 2 weeks after the submission deadline but I still haven’t received anything.
just checked my spam and found an automated email saying that the file didn’t send because it was too big so slightly worried

I received 1 confirmation email when I sent my eligibility criteria form. I also received 1 email one day before the deadline as a reminder to send all documents etc. I didn’t receive any email after the deadline.

I think you should call BM6 ad confirm whether they received your eligibility criteria or not.

I got an email stating that they have received my forms. It also states they will not be chasing around people for forms. Best you call them.

The selection days are composed of a panel interview (usually drs, academics and medical students) and a group interview (with other applicants)

There’s nothing jazzy so just prepare using free online resources and you’ll be absolutely fine. You just need to show you are able to tick the non academic criteria soton care about
