    How long ago did you graduate as some unis insist on an academic ref if its within the last 2 years. Im actually glad mine is being done by uni as I dont want to ask work when i havent even started yet :s
    Only graduated last year and been working fully registered for a year, there was something on ucas that said if you're applying independently and need a reference you can ask someone who will give an accurate representation of your ability. I'm sure I read that an employer could give one. Plus if I already have my degree, I don't see my they'll need a reference about my academic achievements, it can be briefly mentioned in my reference I'm assuming .... :/

    if you have to reapply next year it wont be the end of the world, but dont give up just yet

    Oh wow lol, well that's Warwick out of the question lol there is no way I'm begging my university after the hell they put me through last time. If my ukcat results were ace then maybe, but with what I got, I don't think it's worth even asking them. My application isn't that strong enough. Thanks though
    Oh and all the best of luck with your application, I'm sure you'll be fine !

    Thanks. They also say its not a central part of the selection so may not matter.

    You can plagiarise yourself, it has happened before and it led to students being rejected. Even if UCAS allows it, whichever University you're applying to will see that all you've done is copy whatever you've written a few years ago, and they will not take it lightly. Would you take in someone who in this much amount of time wasn't able to add to their work experience or can't even be bothered to paraphrase something they've written years ago? It shows lack of improvement and commitment, hence why students get rejected. I do not want to argue with you or anyone for that matter, but straight-up copying something in your PS will lead to your application being rejected - there's no way around it, and better be safe than sorry.

    59731887[/url]]No! This is *******s- you can't plagiarise yourself! The system will realise it was you who wrote the PS the year before.

    Correct. But once again, this is not what's being discussed. Of course it looks bad and the uni may choose to reject you because of it, but it is not plagiarism and if somebody did so they would not be flagged for plagiarism by UCAS.

    We're not arguing. You're misinformed, and I'm explaining why.

    I'm aiming to send my application off tomorrow but still stuck on whether to apply for Warwick. I think it could be a huge gamble
    Msc BSc graduate but only UKCAT 665 average and VR was by far the lowest with 560.

    Yeah, I might not apply, got same overall average as you, and same VR score. Gutted! But with your masters I'm sure you have a greater chance of being considered. So go ahead !

    Hiya, I am applying to Nottingham and st Georges GEM. I am currently trying to fill in my UCAS application. In the choices section I have successfully added the universities and graduate courses however I am now in the education section and it doesn't seem to want to let me add my university undergraduate course; it is only offering school/colleges? Any help?!

    Hi everybody! Sorry if this has already been answered this year but I couldn't find the answer anywhere...

    Which UCAS fee code are we supposed to choose for GEM? Private finance, student finance services or DH/regional health?

    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    Currently writing my personal statement... When writing about work experience, have you mentioned specific medical cases you observed and what you've learned from them or just what you've learnt from the work experience overall? Thanks
