BMTV (Biomedical technology ventures) course interview

For anyone who had an interview for the BMTV course (or anyone who has a view on what the 'or' and 'and's' suggest): Did they ask you maths/chemistry/physics questions? or were the questions just on entrepreneurship, why you want to study the course and your personal statement?

This is what it says online:
A 20 minute interview with you and a member of our academic staff. The questions they ask will be informed by your application. Your interview will likely begin with simple questions to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Further questions may be about your Personal Statement, your motivation for applying for the course, and/or testing of your Maths and Physics/Chemistry skills or your entrepreneurship if you have applied for BSc Biomedical Technology Ventures. There will also be time for you to ask your interviewer a question at the end.

Thank you!

Have you had your interview? I am thinking of applying and wanted to know how hard the interview questions are.

Yeah, I have. My interview questions were very physics based despite me not studying a level physics but I was honestly happy with it. I think you can do the physics based questions just with physics gcse level knowledge. Tbf some questions you could understand from the mechanics modules in a level maths.

I also wasn’t asked any questions on entrepreneurship but I was asked for like 5 minutes to talk about what I want so I just talked about me and a bit of my personal statement and stuff I am interested in within biomedical engineering.

However, it is very dependent upon which interviewer you get because I have heard that other people got questions just on their personal statement and other people got questions on entrepreneurship.

Thank you for your response, if you don’t mind me asking what grades you applied with/ what other people applied with and got an offer. I’ve done my mocks so wanted to see if I have a shot of applying .
