    (Oops, setting up another med school thread ). Seeing as there isn't one that I can find for Sheffield, thought I'd make one because I'm applying there! Anyone else applying? I really loved it on the open day, and it's a nice distance from home too!

    Nice! How did you get on in your AS levels? (I'm assuming you're in year 12 going into 13)

    I ended up with AAAA, but aslong as you get Abbb, AAA predictions and 6 A's at gcse, above 600 in ukcat, youll go through to the personal statement stage which is the last decider for interview.

    Yep im going into year 13

    Hi

    I am trying to decide where I might get an interview for medicine. Everything was going well until I got Abbb in my As levels. (Biology/chem/maths/physics).
    The Ukcat went well as well 697.5! I am pondering as where will forgive my AS results. I am sure my school will predict me A*AA for the subjects I continue with but my AS will let me down.

    Now going to work extra extra hard and to find out what went wrong. I was one mark off A in chemistry too!

    Good luck I dont know how Sheffield view the AS results? Anyone?

    Thankx

    Congratulations with your UKCAT! Your AS levels are fine for Sheffield, as they only want ABBB, as long as you're predicted AAA. Shame about the chemistry, considered a remark? I know it's paid off for a few people in the current year 13 thread

    I am going to ask for the paper back and see what my teacher says re the chemistry remark. There is time to do this. I may resit a couple of the modules to bring up the AS marks. Possibly? Thank you

    Congratulations on your excellent Ukcat Score. Sorry to hear about your AS level Results. However it is a small world. I received the same AS results as yourself. Two of my subjects were of by ONE Raw Mark. I know how you feel.:eek:

    Im a gap year student and am wanting to apply to sheffield for medicine. Word of advice, i wouldnt bother with resits if you got very high B's as its possible to make up those extra few UMS at A2. It will give you a great deal more work if you resit rather than focussing on A2 exams. My advice is work extremely hard for your Jan modules as then it takes the pressure off for the summer. I needed E's and U's to achieve A's at A2 due to my jan results, now i've somehow managed to get 3A*'s overall. Please do not worry about your AS results, you can still get A's and A*'s if you put the hard work in!

    When I applied (2011 Entry), Sheffield placed a greater emphasis on A2 predictions than AS results. As long as you are predicted AAA or higher, you should be fine.

    Hello Again,
    I am going to sit my UKCAT and I would really appreciate it if you would pass on your handy tips to me. What books did you use and any external resources? Is the UKCAT a hard test. Please rate on a scale of 1-10 , where 1 is dead easy and 10 is extremely difficult. 5 is easy but not to hard.

    Thanks , for your help

    Some people find it hard, others not so much. For me it was about a 7 or an 8.
