    Thanks
    You too!
    Aw and I know what you mean, we've all somehow been through an emotional time, whether ext circumstances, missing our offers, or no offers at all (and still missing the grades required - in my case )
    Hopefully we resitters will get offer(s) somewhere!

    Yeah I promised myself I wouldn't worry about fees until I finished med school
    Studying medicine always = debt anyways

    Haha yeah. Paying off the debt is years in the future anyway

    One of the hardest things for me has been seeing everybody I know going to university

    That was pretty tough for me too..
    Though a few friends of mine said they'd wished they'd done a gap year and applied for the course they wanted to instead of just accept their clearing offer, but couldn't be bothered with the whole stress of ucas again
    Taking a gap year can be so scary because it's so uncertain - when I declined my biochem offer and took a job as a hca, my parents thought I had actually gone mad but hey ho.. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I know a few people who have stuck around, but most of the people I know are miles away. my parents have been supportive of me sticking around. it was pretty difficult getting my head around not actually going to university this year as well. are you planning on doing anything like travelling? I'm hoping to go in the spring.

    No that would be insane :P UEA want an A* in the subject being resat. I'm not to sure about BSMS requirements but it's somthing similar. Keele want you to resit and get the grades before reapplying.

    Well they rejected me last year without interview and there was no way my school would predict me an A* so I also completely avoided them

    I have a 2week "reward holiday" already booked next summer in Florida
    But voluntary work/gap year-wise, I was thinking about volunteering on a obstetrics ward in West Africa in the summer but nothing's set in stone yet
    I'm hoping that by spring/early summer, I'd have an offer and the grades and then I'll start to plan the fun part of my gap year :rolleyes:
