    I can just imagine me being overjoyed at meeting the UKCAT cut off and then all of a sudden I get a rejection because of my form 😂 I'm on word rn with no idea how to go about it, this is so much harder than the PS😭

    Hahah believe me I know exactly how you feel! After all the stress of the PS when I finally finished and sent it off I felt this immense relief, and then the stress began all over again for this form 😂

    Literally though 😂 I'm going to have it all drafted tomorrow hopefully (so I say anyway😉). I worry about silly things though like sending it off on Monday is too late for me because what if it doesn't send, and then my emails don't work either 😂 so basically I need it done for Sunday so I can feel calm 😂😭

    As they strictly do not want you to have cut and paste from your PS

    on the open day they said not to mention work experience on the form unless your really have to.
    thanks! so should i just stick to talking about volunteering then? also, should i try to link things back to medicine eg. if any of my hobbies have allowed me to gain skills that would be useful in practice, should i detail that?

    When they say don't mention work experience, do they mean don't mention doctor shadowing and stuff like that ?

    yh I think so( basically short term stuff) they want you to mention long term stuff e.g. volunteering at a care home or charity shop or hospice...

    I think it might be different for your motivation for med bit...to me the short term stuff shows you've gone and got a taste of actual day to day medicine so you know what you're getting yourself in to? But I agree that for the other bits you should probably try and stick to long term commitment

    Yh i talked to the Admissions Tutor and he did say not to include short term things such as shadowing in the caring role section but to mention them in the motivation for medicine. TBH my motivation for medicine is based on my medical experiences

    I am finding the caring role so hard to fill out 😭 I do have caring experiences but trying to discuss them in the way they are looking for is what I'm finding difficult

    Just make a long list of all the caring role bits you have done and then pick from them those which read well and flow in your statement
