About 2780, but unclear if that was a Soton grad (as they get lower cut off, I think)

Anyone know how Southampton give out offers? I read somewhere that offers depend on interview performance aswell as UCAT score? does that mean they use sjt to give out offers or just your total score? thanks

Just interview performance. UCAT is used as a tiebreaker

On their website it says that offers are given out to people based on a rank of their interview and UCAT score so I'm assuming UCAT is also used post interview as extra guidance on ranking students.

They have said this for years, but previously clarified it is used as a tiebreaker. Cannot 100% verify they have not changed it this year, but the website has said that for as long as I can remember (granted, that feels like about 3 minutes, now, but this does come up every year and people have checked in previous years)

Does anyone know for Southampton whether you have to have your resit grades achieved before applying, all I can see is that A level resits are considered, I've emailed admissions and called but no response :/

On their website they say:
"AAA to include A level Biology and one additional science (with a pass in the practical element where it is separately endorsed)
Acceptable science subjects are Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, Environmental Studies or Geography."

So biology and sociology plus any 3rd A level would be fine Havinhelin1

No, they will consider predicted grades for resits

Unsure what I should put as my 4th option, ARU or Southampton, I meet the minimum requirements for both and a UCAT score of 2790, what do you guys think?

I mean ARU would probably be safer for interview because they have a far lower ucat cut off than Southampton. But it really depends with the course too because you’d also be likely for Southampton to get an interview. Maybe check how they score post interview?

I think Southampton add your ucat score to your interview score, whereas ARU use just the interview score, I will only apply for Southampton as my 4th if you think I'm pretty much guaranteed to get an interview or else go for ARU

It’s really hard to say you are ever truly guaranteed an interview since weird things happen in application. If you really want a safe option I’d do ARU because it is safer since it’s ucat has historically been lower than Southampton, but if you prefer Southampton’s course I’d apply there because you still have a good shot at Southampton

Can I just clarify that Southampton use your interview score + your UCAT score post interview? This is what the posts above seem to imply?

https://www.southampton.ac.uk/medici...8UKCAT%29.page

They say "The UCAT score is reviewed again alongside performance at Selection Days to determine who will receive an offer.", whereas the likes of ARU determine who gets an offer based solely on interview performance
