    I was also told by my interviewer at the beginning of my interview that people interviewed during January and February are going to hear back at the end of March. He said not to worry as everyone hears on the same day.

    Nope. Only guys have to serve in the army. The girls go on to university directly after the A levels, so by the time the guys are entering the university as freshmen, the girls are already in their third year.

    That's what I was told as well. If it is end of March, this is going to be an excruciating wait.

    Just to clarify, you're asking why the girls get to go to uni while the guys get held back in the army right?

    Well, I wouldn't wanna bore you with the specifics, it's just been this way since Singapore's independence in 1965 (which was when conscription started) Even our government can't come up with a convincing reason why up till now, only the guys have to serve. Girls are allowed to volunteer too though(:

    Yes I was, and that's quite strange/old-fashioned I guess. Seems a little unfair on guys, with girls getting a bit of a "head start" in terms of career.
    Do you find that you actually learn anything from the experience at all?

    Hahah, I can't help but feel sorry for the quiet guys who would rather get on with their education than join the army. Law is law though, I suppose.

    I assume you mean halls of residence?

    You should have three campus choices:

    1. Mile End
    On the Queen Mary campus, ensuite, sharing halls with students that are not medics/dentists. A couple of food places on site, as well as the Mile End library which is fairly big, although not necessarily have the books you require unlike the library in Whitechapel (you also may have a hard time finding a computer that is spare in there). The gym is quite close by if you want to join a relatively well equipped gym that is quite reasonable priced for students.
    Also about 25 minute walk from Whitechapel. Unless you want to take the 25 bus up the road.
    Keep in mind that the non medics might finish that little bit earlier than you so may be a bit louder than you'd like when you're revising. Although that does depend on who is around you and such! (I didn't have issues there, but I know others who didn't appreciate the noise some evenings)

    2. Floyer House - Whitechapel
    This is like two minutes away from the lecture theatre if you just want to roll out of bed in the mornings Fairly large rooms, shared bathrooms. Whitechapel library is really close (closer than the lecture theatre) so easy access around exam times when it's open 24/7. Only medics and dentists around I believe.

    3. Dawson Hall - Barbican
    A bit further out in Barbican, but a lovely area! Charterhouse lawn is right outside and it's pretty awesome to be in the sun on the lawn in the summer. Only medics and dentists. Shared bathrooms. Usually quite a strong knit group is made in those who live there together There's a library down the road in Barts hospital as well, which is usually dead silent if that's what you prefer.
