    Ah thanks to you both.
    Yeah, am quite shocked I got unconditional - I've still got a Masters to finish up, but it's nice to have the pressure off a little.... Are you doing A-levels or undergrad? I only applied to Bristol, so it was a massive gamble - but it seems to have paid off!
    meenah: really hope you're not waiting too long. Do you have any other offers?

    Wow,that's absolutely amazing!!!!
    I'm a reapplicant after four straight rejections last year, I've been soooo lucky this year and in the past two weekds I've received offers from Leeds and Liverpool so I know I don't really have the right to be stressing about Bristol. But I LOVED Bristol sosososo much!! If I get rejected then I'll go ahead and firm Leeds though, just so happy I'm finally going to be studying medicine, I cried for like half an hour from sheer joy
    I genuinely hope everyone gets to where they want to be!! X

    Im in yr 13 and still have my june modules to worry about. Nice one meenah! Bristol is the only medicine uni i have left but im prepared for the worst and im going to take a gap year if all doesnt go to plan. However I do hope i get into bristol because it was so nice there. who knows... we may be in the same lecture come october!!! well done for your offers guys. definitely well deserved!!!!

    by the way: I just remembered that there are interviews today as well, so good luck to anyone who has had/ is having one, im sure you all will do really well!!

    meenah: Thank you! I think congratulations are in order for you too... Totally understand what you mean about Bristol though - I loved it too and know I'm incredibly lucky to have been given an offer. I sincerely hope Bristol comes up with the goods for you as well, but I hear Leeds and Liverpool are pretty tip-top too..!

    wubzza155: So sorry to hear about all this - but, as I think meenah has proven, a gap year would be no bad thing at all for your 2013 application if this is what it turned out to be. I wish you the very best of luck with it all - and I really hope Bristol don't keep you waiting too much longer...

    on their website, it says "credit is given for the best 8 gcse subjects at A/A*"

    does anyone know exactly how this works? Do they credit an A* more than an A, or see them equally?

    Just got rejected from Bristol having been on the waiting list since Jan!
    I kind of expected it actually because my interview was terrible!
    Looks like I'm firming Leeds, don't get me wrong I'm happy to do so but was looking forward to maybe joining you all!!
    Oh well, lots of luck in your future careers and enjoy med school/where ever you end up! lots of love xxxxxx

    Oh, so sorry to hear this meenah, wubzza155 and housefan12...

    wubzza155 and housefan12: I know this is easy for me to say, but I really think that taking a gap year will be brilliant - I've had several in between doing various things (before I even decided I wanted to do Medicine!). They gave me such varied experiences - and I'm sure it'll be the same for you too, which will only serve to strengthen your Medicine applications for next year.

    I really wish you all the best of luck!
