Sorry to gatecrash your thread but I was hoping there may be some current UCL med students on here who can help answer a question. My DC has to decide by the end of the weekend whether to go to UCL for Medicine or not.
They are very bright but A level exam performance did not reflect ability and hard work they put in and was 3 grades lower than predicted when results came out yesterday. If they go, they would have amongst the lowest A level grades when starting first year I suspect.
I suspect they may have mild dyslexia which is becoming more apparent higher up school.
Is it true that if DC was to fail one end of first year exam at UCL they would have to resit all of the first year exams?
How many people are kicked out of UCL medicine each year?
How understanding are the faculty about DC who may have eg dyslexia?
DC also has unconditional offer of a place elsewhere (less academic reputation) but needs to decide quickly.
Thanks for your help
