    Hi guys,

    I think I'm applying to Birmingham, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Sheffield for Medicine with predicted grades being AAA in French, Biology and Chemistry.

    I am due to do my UKCAT a week today and I am really struggling on the timing basis, have any of you got any tips? Just wondering how much unis actually take into account those results.

    Also, I was wondering how much consideration the Unis take into my personal statement and what they want to hear?

    Thanks

    Also, I got two Cs at AS Level in French and Maths. I got As in all my units except an E in decision and D in FN2 and I am resitting these units next year. Will unis care about this?

    Hey,


    I'm in the same boat as you, my UKCAT this week! I really hope we both do well! Read this,

    Bristol love the personal statement with a weight of 70%.

    The rest I'm not sure, I got a C and B at AS. I am predicted AAA in bio chem and maths, tbh they only care about that, as long as you can get it then the rest is a bonus I suppose. Then again I only know as much as you.

    I wish you all the best with it!

    Thanks, where are you looking at going? I'm stressing so much with all the deadlines!!

    Because my the exams I sat this year are external I have to put it in my UCAS application and my AS grades weren't that good. I'll apply with an open mind to KCL - the extended medical degree programme. Barts - the scheme they've got and st Georges. I can't want to leave London so I'll see what they say and if it goes well then yay but if it doesn't then I expected it to be poor.

    I can't leave london because I can't afford to pay for accomodation or anything, I can't even pay for university looool thus I must stay home

    Wby?
