    Defer ucl for a year ... If u dont hear anything ... Sit ukcat -> smash it like get 100 % = medicine interviews = medicine ( easy peasy ) if ukcat not good u have pharmacy to go back to ... Honestly if u want medicine get everything rite at a levels ... GRADUATE ENTRY = mind Fu** ... Honestly unles u bloom and get in the top 6-8% of ukcat scores ... I would advice anyone who wants to do medicine and has done worke experience ... Can get the grades ... Forget everything else ... Get ur grades and work on these admissions test ... U can try as a graduate but it will be ridiculously competitve as places are reduced every year ... St georges is reducing grad med from 100 to 50 ... U get the point

    Can I defer? That would be great if I could. So you're advice is to get 3 As at A2, defer my pharmacy offer whilst taking a gap year. Then Smash the UKCat and reapply?

    Seriously why self doubt ... U will not be successful if u self doubt ... Everyone has doubts ... Its all about working out how to get round issues which give slef doubt ... Get a grip MAN ( Lol me saying this in a funny way lolz )

    REMEBER BY GAPPING ALL U LOOSE IS A YEAR COMPARED TO WHAT U CAN REALISTICALLY GAIN .... IF U GET UR ALEVELS ...
    Do a risk / benefit chart ( this is helpful always in life ) and decide .....
    I envy u ... I wish in could say what u just said !

    ON A BIT OF A HARSH NOTE WHICH U WILL BE SUBJECTED TO BY SOMEONE SO ITS BETTER I DO IT LOL ... If ur confused about med dont do it ....
    I would always say get more experience and then decide ... Dont be turned off by not being sure ... We are all uncertain and sometimes make decisions ... No one had a mystic ball to say u will make a bad or a great doctor ....
    Ok so bear it in mind to remember if someone says to u dont do med if ur not sure ( treat that with a pinch of salt and also use that to reflect honestly ... How do u think its likely )
    ... Enough said

    Thank you so much! Lots of great advice. Sorry at first I didn't see you're full reply just the first paragraph. Im sure I want to do medicine I just dont want to end up in 2015 with no place anywhere but now you said about deferring I'll do some research into it i.e call UCL up.

    Have you reapplied this year? If you have where did u apply and hows it gone?

    I am a bit of a person what u call a loser medic wanna be ... ( like this is my 4or 5th application-- so like that weird person u met who has applied like a 100000th times Lolz ) .. So not the best person to advice but many people who are grads ( me included .. Lol don't know how I managed to fool unis to make me a grad lol lol lol) will repeat what I said word for word ... ( u can PM me if u really want my details but allow it ( wink wink ))
    Hey Man U have to take the risk of not being with a place in 2015 .. I can't make that decision for u and also ... Remember there is always a 5th choice on Ucas ...... for BIOMEDS lol ( u can do that as a BSC = 3 years ) so what ur really saying is u don't want to give up ucl ( which is ur fall back option) which is fair enough but we both are strangers ..I don't know ur circumstances .. I can't even possibly tell u what to do or what ur options are as i don't know u ( philosophical sense lol not being rude and saying I dônt know u lol) u can also reapply to pharmacy hello ?????? Lolz
    PS WHY ARE U AIMING FOR 3As only ... Why not chuck in the odd A* eh ?

    Callll other unis up before u call ucl trust me on that one ... It will reduce any nerves u would have ( I can imagine loads) ...

    I literally receive a PM everyday from someone who wants information on the interview. Today it was a guy wanting to know what the ethical scenario was. How many times, i'm not giving out any information + neither should anyone else! Just putting that out there bc it is getting frustrating now. We all didn't know what to expect when we went in and it should be the same for everyone.

    Has anyone got 'My Messages' on their homepage of the portal?
    And why does my message from King's (from December) have a red flag on it? It was only a thank you for uploading certificates

      They have a post-offer open day on the 19th March
      Do you think there's any point going? I've already firmed and applied for accommodation, so I'm not sure if it's worth paying for the train if there's nothing I'll get from going!

      If you've been on an open day before, visited Wolfson House and have no questions for current students and academics, then may be not.

      But I'm going just to meet people on my course (15 min train for me).

      I've only heard of one person who got an offer without being asked to upload their certificates via the portal. Has anybody else received an offer without being asked to (re)upload their documents? (my interview was on the 11th of Dec. and still no news)
