    Wow, so many future medics are moaning about the ranking of SGUL as if it's actually going to significantly adversely affect your life. I'd advise you to please give up your offer to someone much more deserving.
    Haha~~agreed!

    I'm seeing a lot on how George's is ranked low on the league tables. Has it been mentioned that medicine is standardised and that they don't see where you've been when you apply for foundation training? The league tables are based on student satisfaction and on research. If I'm remembering the student satisfaction was still in the 90%'s range. I'm a first year here and I'm having the best time and personally feel being in a smaller uni means I have access to better opportunities and have better teaching as having a smaller years mean lecturers can afford to stay behind and answer your questions. It also means you can get to know your older years and they give you so much help and advice you wouldn't believe. Any of you who have firmed and are happy with your decision, please feel free to PM me with questions (ask me anything, I know moving to uni is a scary but exciting time so fire away until you're at ease).

    I'm thinking of applying to st georges for med this year, I was wondering if you could advise me on entry requirements, i think ill get abbb/aabb this year for AS (not great i know ill probably end up taking a gap year I'm well aware), which is why i was considering retaking. I now they consider modular resists, but would those grades put me at a big disadvantage even though i have good gcses/ if i was predicted AAA? My schools not eligible to any schemes. Also, would dropping chemistry at A level be a bad idea?

    No disadvantage at all if you apply here with those AS grades.

    Probably a disadvantage at a lot of other med schools though, similarly dropping chem will put you at a big disadvantage when applying.

    i was confused about that as well. the newsletter they sent us said this though
    "Information booklets and forms will be available for download on the Admissions microsite by the end of this week i.e. Friday 12 June. Admissions will be e-mailing all applicants a covering letter which will include a link to the microsite. Applicants will be required to return all documentation requested by no later than Friday 10 July, so keep an eye on your inbox and junk mail folder."

    Does anyone know how long St George's waiting list is? Are there many people on it?

    Because they'll only let me in if they have spaces, and they never do..

    dont be depressed , I did my exams in may (ib child) and I feel the exact way , in facr after finishing my first eaxm , I was like , what the point of life any more , and my chemisrry exam , lol! , It was written in some other language the examiners probablt thought I was crazy because I was smiling hysterically after opening the paper because I knew I was screwed, i literally guessed every single question anyway , not going to preach don't let that get you down , everyone else is feeling the same way , chin up and look at the point when you finish all your exams and you can push this under the table until you get your results

    it sounds so generic but I hope this helps

    I know what you're saying aha

    But arghh I really just want to go and grovel to Micki Regan (admissions lady) and tell her that this one disproportionately tough paper literally ruined my entire A level. Thank god it's not just me who feels this paper was really disgusting - did you see the Twitter reactions? They made me feel better because they were funny aha

    I got AABB last year, I currently have an offer from St Georges from the waiting list and had an Interview at Newcastle (very similar to Durham in terms of standards) so my advice is go for it!
    Hi, I just wanted to ask, did your teachers predict you all A grades? And what kind of other things did you do e.g. voluntary service, work experience etc?

    Guys am I missing something here?

    I've applied for accommodation but I haven't had confirmation that I've got a room - is that the case with everyone?

    Also I've registered but not submitted the DBS thing like Micki told us

    Got the health questionnaire and vaccinations from gp too

    Is that all that's required?
