    These videos are amazing ! Please do a video on graduate Medicine (even though it’s MMI). There’s not really much information about it

  2. Yael Y

    If possible, could you please do one for law

    Do you know if the interview differ in any way for Graduate entry students? Is there a heavier focus on experience etc. I am applying for entry into the 2019/20 academic year (I will be a graduate of Software Engineering by then). I have an A* in biology so I was very knowledgeable before, but it has been over 3 years. I am worried for the scientific part, as a lot of my memories of biology surfaced a little late or only in part when I heard these questions. I am currently doing a Chemistry A-level in prep for applying so that knowledge will be fresh, but I’m worried I’m a little rusty with the Biology. I’ll be brushing up a bit before the interview of course, but any tips on how to handle it if something comes up I can’t quite remember? Would interviewers disapprove of I was to almost work through my vague memories aloud? (for example, I could not remember the shape of a bacterial cell, but I thought ‘Right OK, what do I remember being inside it? Mitochondria… Etc.’
