    Hey Guys,
    Once you have firmed and are ready to go, does anyone know whether UCL asks for proof of everything? I mean do they ask evidence for qualifications as well as everything in your personal statement such as work experience eg at a hospital etc. Because if this is the case then I am not sure how we are supposed to provide proof for all of our work experience and other achievements??
    Thank you for your help x x

    I think you only have to send in proof of your results. Depending on what exam board you are they might be automatically sent over to them, for example the IB. I don't think they need proof for work experience etc, but you should get a letter in the mail from UCL explaining all of this - they say that they will request, if needed, at a later date.

    Hope that helps!

    Is this a letter that arrives after firming?

    It doesn't need to be academic. I'd say definitely give it a go.

    I'm thinking of applying, i got A*AB at a-level which is just short of the requirement but they said they accept a retake outside the 2 years of college.

    I was just wondering, is there anyone else who retook an exam (after 2 years of sixth form) and then got an offer?

    Thanks

    Look on the medicine stalking page for last year, there are plently of people. And your grades are among the better ones for resitters (I only have ABB). Good luck.
