    So I missed my grades fro KCL and basically lost my place. Im not sure what to do. If I take a gap year, there are only a handful of unit that will consider me so i basically won't be able to apply to KCL again. If I took a biomed degree somewhere else then can I reapply to King's as an undergraduate despite my a level grades not meeting the required or can I only apply with a postgrad position? someone please help me... Im not sure whether to go for a domed degree or take a gap year. I understand that the GAMSAT is quite hard and that entering medicine through a post grad degree is competitive and difficult
    I messed up year 13 and got BCC at Alevel, did a degree in Bio/Chem, got into KCL this year for 5 yr med I am pretty sure less people applied med this year cos of the whole junior doctors ting and it might've sorted itself out by next year, but if not then it could be easier to get into med next year too! It depends how much you missed your grades by. I did a degree cos I had no other option to get into med but you might be alright with just doing a few retakes x

    My offer was AAA - but I put King's as my insurance, not firm
    I got AAB, the B was in maths and only a few UMS off
    Waiting for my remark to come back

    But didn't get a place as the places all filled up
    They said consider reapplying though which I thought was strange?

    Not sure what will happen if the remark comes back successfully (not expecting anything though)
    Will hear on Monday probably

    Hi guys, I'm applying for 2017 entry but figured it might help to ask here; how much do Kings value the UKCAT and academic stuff compared to extracurricular activities and things? I will probably have A*AA predicted, with a 2300 (out of 2700 this year) UKCAT, and relevant work experience, but I can't say I've done a lot of music or sport or other things. Is it still worth applying? Will i be greatly disadvantaged for this?

    Thanks

    I recently received my enrolment email so you should get one soon too, provided you've sorted out all the other stuff like the DBS

    The timetable is not the same every week. No two days are the same so all I can say for the above is it's a very empty week. Further information on timetables:

    (Original post by MrDystopia)
    Example timetable:

    5 days a week of work. Most is lectures, Can be anywhere from 2-6 lectures a day for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday.

    You'll have a 2 hour slot of anatomy, taking place in the dissection room.

    You'll often have a tutorial or two.

    Any GP/hospital visits will be timetabled for you in advance.

    All days can have things timetabled anywhere from 9am till 5pm.

    Wednesday's you will never have anything timetabled beyond 1pm (It's a half day for everyone across the uni).

    The reason I give you it like this is because your timetable is fluid unlike other courses. You will never have two days the same. As such, it's hard to give you an actual example timetable because...well it could be any mix of thigns on a given day. So two days as examples could be:

    9am - 11am Lectures, 11am - Noon Tutorial, Noon - 1pm Empty, 1pm - 3pm Lectures, 3pm - 5pm Dissection

    Or

    9am - 10am Lecture, 10am - 3pm Empty, 3pm - 5pm Lectures

    As for recommended reading, you'll have access to a reading list when you arrive, but some of the more widely used textbooks that I would HIGHLY recommend are as follows. Note that this is to supplement learning. Please don't take this list and spend your summer memorising the textbooks...

    Lippincott's Biochemistry
    Rang and Dale's Pharmacology
    Vanders Human Physiology
    Clinically Orientated Anatomy

    Those are probably what most people use/buy/take out from the library since they broadly cover most areas of your course. If you really want to read something in your summer, I guess just brushing up on basic science would be the best bet as that is what you'll begin the course studying.

    To any current students: Is there any kind of storage unit (e.g. lockers) at guy's campus for students?, especially since i'll be commuting so i won't be able to bring all my notes and books everyday on the train. And will i need actual notebooks or do students do everything on laptops and tablets now? And is there any kind of 'kitchen' like for hot water and heating in a microwave, etc.?

    As far as I am aware there's nothing storage wise in like you've stated. Given Guy's Campus is 4 buildings I'm fairly certain of that. To maximise efficiency, I'd obviously suggest not bringing EVERYTHING, only what you require for the day. Things like textbooks are much better off left at home since you can just visit the library to read up on stuff.

    In regards to notebooks, it depends on how you learn. I am personally a paper and pen man. I've always done my notes annotating the slides that they provide for you, or writing down my own on paper. I know some people like to annotate the slides on their laptop/tablet during lectures, I know some people who like to sit there and do nothing but listen. Some people also like bringing in a dictaphone and recording the lecture (Perfectly allowed but of course get permission from the lecturer prior).

    Finally in regards to a kitchen area, I know the EMDP common room has a microwave, so if you're planning on heating up food you've brought from home, you can use that by just like..getting an EMDP friend to let you in I guess? Hot water you can ask for at the cafe on campus, seen plenty of people go up and ask for one.
