    Yep I'm in an ensuite too, we could be neighbours. Which is good for you as I'm planning to bring CAKE on the first day :woo:

    Nottingham Medicine is so perfecto for me, I would probably end my life too or emigrate somewhere remote if i missed these grades. I still can't believe I actually have an offer, its so surreal.

    And Rutland Rocks!!!!

    Wooo!!!! I have a new best friend already ( I bet you're really scared now lol) Notts is strange, i think its a bit like marmite, as people either seem to love it or hate it. But we obviously love it so MEH to them

    I always knew it was going to be tough to get in, looking back i don't understand why I doubted myself so much and I wish I was more positive at the beginning of the application process. And I wish could work harder now to actually get the flippin grades to go lol!!!!

    The med course is FABNOSITY. I mean, two degrees for the price and time as 1?? Whats not to love?? You get haters jabbering on about how its only worth 1 MTAS point and its increases workload but, again, TRIPLE MEH. :yep:

    And OMG, the campus is so beautiful and the QMC is so cooooool.....can't wait!!!!!!!

    Better do some of this then today.... :work: LOL

    Hah yer I know what you mean, some people just focus on gun-crime rate and things like that, and are all negative :P

    Yer the QMC is really good, that has to be amongst the best few places in the country for somewhere to learn medicine.

    Yer the BMedSci is definitely a plus and the campus is nice

    Yer I'm gona do a bit of that :work:
    I want good scores :P

    Sadly gun crime is unavoidable all over the country now I think, and Nottingham does have crime but I think its no worse than London and the other major citys. From what I've heard anyway as a student in Nottingham you rarely encounter the bad areas so we should be ok. And anyway, if we do get attacked we can treat ourselves so YAY :p:

    QMC is fab, we're very lucky to have such a big hospital right next to the med school, as we'll get to meet patients very frequently and very early on in the course

    Btw, me and my friend were trying to work out where that big silver tube from the QMC leads to. The one that goes over the dual carriageway, you can see it as you go over the bridge from the main campus to the med school. You don't happen to know do you?? :confused:

    Yer it just connects onto the CBS (centre for biomolecular sciences), which is just a building on the main campus. If you cross the bridge from the first floor of the QMC, then you get into CBS, go down a couple of flights of stairs or take the lift, and you come out in the campus.

    Lol yeah you did. Its basically a big silver tube that runs parallel to the bridge....have a look when you (fingers crossed) go there. I reckon its the passage to a secret portal where they keep the failed med students :eek: Or the Psychology Students....HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Could be for cables or something. No doubt theres a network link between the hospital and the campus and it may have been too expensive to dig underground to lay cables :P

    Haha what a good, reasonable suggestion. Makes much more sense than the wackynosity that was going on in my head. You'd make a fab doctor lol!!

    Oh btw, did you get a letter from Notts today?? I was so excited when I opened it, i thought they might be telling me that they don't care about my grades anymore and just want me to come anyway (!!!) But it turned out to be forms for a health and CRB check, whick we have to pay 36 QUID for!!!!!! :eek3: Have you started the immunisation process or are you waiting until you get there??

    Gosh, everything feels so real now doesn't it?? I am a mixture of scardiness, nervousness, happiness and excitement!!!!!!!!! :woo:

    Yer I got it the other day. Took the health record check to the GP surgery and that cost £15 to get the GP to sign it.

    Havn't filled in the CRB check yet, will do that at some stage

    Erm I havn't started any immunisation process, so when i get there i guess? I hope that won't be a problem? what do you know about it?
    What about you?

    Yer it's getting there, I pretty much agree with those emotions :P It's pretty intense atm, will probably more excited after A levels are finished.

    Lol stingy GP!!! £15 for a signature? Meh, I would probably charge the same....:p:

    I've had the first two injections, but it honestly doesn't matter as they're gonna give us a checkover when we get there (a bit like MOT!!!), to see what injections we need.
