    Hi guys, just look for some advice. I will be applying for 2013 entry to Liverpool and would like a realistic estimation of my chances.

    I study biology, chemistry, English Literature and also do general studies. I am going to take up AS history in year 13 because my school's option blocks wouldn't permit it this year. I'm working on a secure A in both bio and chem and will most probably come out with a B in English Lit at the end of AS.

    I have done all the usual volunteering and experience. 6 A*s and 5 A'S at GCSE.

    I am just worried about the 4th AS, even though Liverpool say general studies can be considered as the 4th.

    Liverpool will accept general studies as the fourth AS as long as it's a grade B so don't worry too much. You stand a good chance with Liverpool with those GCSE grades :cool: Just remember that the personal statement is the biggest factor when it comes to interview selection. Try and include all the criteria mentioned in "other attributes" in this document. http://www.liv.ac.uk/media/livacuk/s...ALJune2011.pdf Good luck

    I highly doubt you would be out-ranked by other students. The fourth AS is merely a requirement that when passed is not really looked at again. It does not form part of the selection process. The subject is irrelevant as long as the grade is a B. Liverpool have stated that they accept General studies so you have absolutely no reason to worry. It would only really count against you for other universities which explicitly state that they do not count General studies as the fourth AS. In which case it shouldn't be a problem because you are taking an AS in History next year

    Thanks for the replies myyrh, it is always good to gain that confidence back in terms of getting to interview/a place.

    thank you!! yeah I just feel LUCKY to have one. you know how hard it is to get an offer when you're an international applicant

    oh sad to hear that when was your interview by the way.
    well done for getting into cardiff anyway.
    My interview was the 6th of feb.

    I actually have to say that it was my first interview and I was pretty nervous like I have made many stupid mistakes the silliest one is when I said abortion was illegal in the UK... the doctor was shocked :roll eyes: he repeated what I said and I have quickly changed my answer... and I had the same thing with the ethical questions... and in cardiff one I was relaxed and luckily no silly mistakes

    No they arent the same. Deadlines depend on when all 4 schools got back to you. Type ucas 2012 deadlines into google and you can find the link to our deadline to fi

    Hey, this is a question for students currently at the medical school.

    Are there books that the university suggests to study from for exams and also is preparing for exams much more difficult than how we would be preparing for our A levels right now?

    Thanks!
