  1. Hi, you probably won't reply to this, but just in case you do, can I ask you what subjects you got your Bs in your GCSEs? It's just that I got a B in my GCSE maths, I don't know if I should re-sit the maths to bring it up to an A (I'm in Year 13), what do you think?
  2. DISLIKE :rant:

    I'm already a first year medical student
  3. I had no idea you studied at Barts! :gasp:

    Why is everyone there? :cry:
  4. I am trying to join the the Labour Party but for some reason I can't! (the leader says he's accepting my request but I don't see it)
  5. hi there, i have made a poll and would like to alter it can you help?
    many thanks
  6. Your list of loves and likes in your About Me is so positive that it cheered me up.

    Here's a hug for you :hugs:

    Hope you'd have a good day.
  7. How do I change the title of a thread I created?
  8. Sent you a PM about some Ideas I have.
  9. Just wondering if you've seen my message. I hate to be a pain but I'd rather not cause any trouble.
  10. Oh LOL.

    Highly probable. I dont think too much speculation is healthy mind you. :erm:

    I think its ideal. More so than being with
    Another 2 or more parties.

    How is Barts?

    I guess with all the work at Barts.... You won't be able to mod but I can take over.

About Me

  • About Wilzman

    Where I study
    Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry
    Star Sign
    Don't believe in it
    About me
    I was a medicine applicant for 2010 entry, but was unsuccessful. My UKCAT for 2010 was 687.5 (mean).

    I applied to:

    Bristol University: Rejected without interview
    Cardiff University: Rejected without interview
    University of Leeds: Rejected without interview
    University of Oxford (Balliol and Keble Colleges): Rejected after interview

    I took a gap year, and worked as a HCA (Healthcare Assistant) in a nursing home for several months, alongside gaining work experience through GP placements and charity work.

    In conjunction with this, I applied to medical school for 2011 entry (with a UKCAT mean of 700), applying to:

    Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry: Offer after interview
    Brighton and Sussex Medical School: Rejection without interview
    Keele University: Offer after interview
    University of Manchester: Offer after interview
    University of Manchester (Biochemistry): Offer after interview

    I accepted Barts and the London as my firm and, after saving up enough money, I went travelling for a few months before starting university.

    Feel free to ask me anything about my application, or about the unis I applied to (weirdly I still remember a lot about the admissions processes of each).
    Academic Info
    A Levels: A*AA (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)
    AS Levels: AAAA (Biology, Chemistry, Physics and History)
    GCSEs: 3A*s, 6As, 2Bs
    UKCAT Mean Scores: 687.5 (2010 entry), 700 (2011 entry)

    Love politics - I'm a card carrying member of the Lib Dems (cue people googling my posts and negging me for this bit ).
    Love medically related things - particularly interested in stem cell research right now (therapeutic uses for embryonic stem cells to be exact).
    Like helping people - cliché I know, but it's true. Helping people with medical admissions stuff is something I like doing too. I remember how hard it was for me, so helping others to avoid my mistakes gives me a fair amount of satisfaction.
    Like reading - a lot. If you know of a good book, PM the title to me. I'm slowly building up a bucket list of books which I intend to plow though over the next few years.
    Like drinking - especially ales and whiskey (yes I'm an old man already at 19, I know, I don't care ).
    Like life - because, life is good.

    Oh, and poetry is also cool. Here's some poetry:

    With beat of systole and of diastole
    One grand great life throbs through earth's giant heart,
    And mighty waves of single Being roll
    From nerveless germ to man, for we are part
    Of every rock and bird and beast and hill,
    One with the things that prey on us, and one with what we kill.
