    Anybody else applying to UCL? I most certainly am! Love everything about UCL. Love the buildings (cruciform looks amazing, lovely view of bloomsbury campus from there), love the course (dissection and Bsc year), great hospitals (UCLH on your doorstep), love the location, love everything!

    I'm posting a bit late.

    I would've thought so, but given that there's already a Cambridge 2013 Medicine stalking page, nothing's too early now, I guess!

    Hey everyone - I too, am hoping to apply to UCL.
    I couldn't go to the Open Day, but is there anyone who can answer the following questions for me please?

    1) What kind of GCSE grades do successful applicants possess?
    2)When would be best to start preparing for the BMAT?
    3) What does UCL's Medicine course consist of - I know there is the intercalated degree, but what year do students start getting clinical experience?
    4) Do they do full anatomy dissections? (Please say yes!)


    Thank you kindly.

    Hi guys,

    I am really struggling to differentiate between UCL, King's and Imperial for medicine. They all seem really good, but could someone point out some major differences as I definitely want to apply to a london university to read medicine but I am not sure which one. I think they all offer cadaveric dissections, have really good facilities, have opportunity to intercalate, good accomodation (Imperial is slightly more expensive).



    The key factors I am looking for are:
    -lecture based and strong emphasis on science in early years
    -limited patient contact
    -elective opportunity
    -tutorial opportunities
    -SSCs

    Thanks

    Hey yeah I'm applying to hopefully and it's such a great location agreed!

    What did you get for your AS results?

    and does anyone know what UCL mean about their disapproval or resits? does that mean they don't allow people who have done a resit in a module of a subject i.e. resitting a january unit exam in june?

    I got AAAA in Bio, chem, maths and physics

    I read that they say you can resit a jan unit in june, but say that you may struggle with their course since you sit all your exams at the end of year at UCL

    Hi purplefrog, I know that UCL look at AS levels but is it true that after you have applied to them, they will contact your school to ask for UMS scores of the results of your 4 subjects?

    They didn't for the year I applied. However there is indication they might do so from now on based on this post onwards. They have yet to make this standard policy though as I've not seen it printed in any of their admissions documents sayings they'll universally do so for every applicant.
