    It is. Whomever wins the 'most likely to become an Amoeba' award will most definitely be given an unconditional at Cambridge and be the worlds most successful doctor.

    Ah yes, the EPQ that I'm not allowed to do until A2 year, and only then if I drop a subject which currently isn't the plan (grades dependent). At times I really do hate my college :/
    I suppose there's some method in it. Our college won't let us do it if we continue with 5A Levels. I may not be able to as I am picking uo Physics AS next year and possibly fast tracking.

    I've applied to that Sutton Summer school for Medicine at Cambridge. I suspect I'll get rejected-

    If that happens, a small part of me want to get rejected from Cambridge in the real thing just for the quirky novelty that I got rejected three times by Cambridge in 2012. :moon: that'll be one to tell the kids...

    I want to apply to the summer school as well even though I also think I'll be rejected. Do you think I'll be at a disadvantage if one parent has gone to a non-uk uni but I meet the rest of the eligibility requirements? I don't know whether I should bother applying.

    If you don't apply then you won't get in. It says only half of people get in fit all of the requirements so I imagine you will have as much a chance that I do (all requirements exceot school having bad A Level point score (not brilliant but a good pass rate none the less) and being in care)

    Damn, why do I keep persuading people to apply to these things- it just makes me get über rejected faster!

    Peoplpe actually come to me for work experience advise in college- sods law states I'm going to get 'überej' (do you like my TOWIE inspired word?)

    (I JEST ) Im sure grammar school peeps get places- unless they're multi-millionaires, both their parents went to Cambridge, they live in Kensingotn, they got <4 A* at GCSE etc etc etc. good luck!

    Don't worry - I'm sure we'll all get in

    People ask you about work experience? Most medics in my school don't even know what UCAS is let alone know what to do to get into med :erm:

    Haha love it. You could give the TOWIE cast a run for their money :mmm:

    Thanks.

    I mean I fit quite a few of the other categories (neither parents went to uni etc) but I probably don't deserve it as much as someone from an under-privileged background

    Are you joking, we both got similar GCSEs and I don't think it would be fair to suggest you worked any less to get yours.

    I hear there's going rumours of a Cambridge 'ToWIE'. I so want to be the eccentric medic everyone thinks "how the **** did he get in?". For the bantz.
