    Southampton interview selected Mature non-grads and selected international students only. Home undergrads and grads do not have interviews at Soton as far as I am aware...

    But thats besides the point because the OP has already stated that she has an interview. She wants to know how they interview not if/who!;)

    And there are a small number of BM5 applicants interviewed every year who are home students.

    From my memory the interviews will be based in part on your personal statement, some questions about the course, your interests etc. Nothing that is too theoretical and they should be friendly. If someone else has had a more recent interview than me they will be able to give you a better idea.

    you may find that you are asked about a recent media story, but mostly it is personal to you so know your ps...

    Thanks for the help Clarkey and latestarter :) I'm bit curious now though..I mean if you get called for an interview for BM5 does it mean you have passed the academic part of the application already? or they still look into it after the interview- in decision making process for the offer?

    Your academic skills are firstly assessed by your UCAS form and what your predicted grades/referee says. Then they look at your PS and will either interview you or not depending on the course.

    If you get an offer it will be conditional on you meeting the grades they ask you to get. And that is the last stage.

    Hope that helps

    For me, it's difficult to say if BM5 and 6 are different as my interview was for both at the same time, same for my friend just before me from the same college...
