    I dont get them...I got an offer from medical microbiology and rejection from medical genetics...as you said, the requirements are the same, and i got an offer for one of them, so i don't know why i was rejected from the other one. Thats where my question about transfers came from. I would really want to study genetics, microbiology was ma back-up. Do you think its all because of the competition or they just don't want give me 2 offers from the ssame department.

    don't stress out, your'e not rejected yet, so you still have a chance to get in, what are your predictions?
    I'm predicted A*A*A (Biology, Physics, Chemistry). It's my backup for medicine, which is why I'm freaking out really, obviously I really want to medicine, but if I'm one of the 60% who don't get a medicine offer, or if I don't get AAA, I actually have no clue what I'm going to do, I really want to go to uni next year and clearing seems horrible .

    I asked at the open day if applying with a medicine ps was a big disadvantage and they said not, plus I did talk about genetics quite a bit - I've read quite a bit about some areas and I volunteer for a charity for children with genetic diseases, so I figured they wouldn't be too offended about me blabbing on about how I wanted to be a doctor for the majority of it

    I don't know about the 2 offers thing, that worries me too (I've applied for medicine there too). I was told they consider all applications for subjects entirely separately.

    Anyone know if Medical Genetics is more competitive than some of the other bio/med sciences at Leicester? It is quite an unusual course I guess, and where better than Leicester for anything genetics related? They did discover genetic fingerprinting there, I wonder if that encourages an unusually high number of people to apply :confused:

    You really don't need to panic, it's only what, 3/4 weeks since you applied? .. as far as I can gauge Leicester isn't on-top of its paperwork currently. You're still early in the admissions process, and have plenty of time to receive an offer. Additionally the fact that you have applied to two different courses at Leicester means they could be considering your application more carefully, and are taking longer looking at it.

    Hi,

    I sent my application for Law on the 28th Oct. and haven't heard anything, apart from an acknowledgement. Has anyone else applied around that time? Have you guys heard anything?
