    Your experiences sound amazing!

    I guess my strengths are more academic than practical, graduated as top of my class from my undergrad (science) and had the full score in the Italian equivalent of A levels, but I only started recently with my HCA job. Not so confident about Cambridge but I thought I might give it a go as I already have 3 UKCAT unis

    So my work experience is full-time HCA, one month in a rural African clinic, 9 months patient experience volunteer, some shadowing experience in private practices, hospital wards, and a humble one week in a caring home which was my first ever work experience.

    I received an email from the administration team at Kings. They said that they aimed to hold interviews for the GEM course on the 8th and 11th January.
    Argh, potential clash with Warwick there!

    I really want to say you're not doomed, but I'm not sure! It's worth calling UCAS to ask...

    are you talking about kings? they said a mathematics degree counted as a science to me.
    I was. Sorry, I was talking specifically about my engineering degree. They said 'hard core sciences' such as Chemistry, Physics and Maths were fine, as were life sciences. All other science degrees require at least 50% of the course to be chemistry content.

    I have! I've applied to Southampton, KCL, Newcastle and Keele - all 5 year! x
    I went for Manchester, Sheffield and Keele five years!! Good luck guys

    Just a quick question,

    When you updated your Pearson VUE page, when you logged on we're you faced with a page to fill in with your UCAS Id and choices? And then when you clicked save you went to the home page and that's it?

    Did you also receive an email saying your Pearson VUE profile has changed?

    Just want to make sure I've done it right!

    No email but it is fine as the home page stated in small font that the details were saved and if you check again afterwards it will have been amended. I'm sure you'll be fine!

    So I just read the reference my tutor submitted. First of all he said I graduated in 2014 instead of 2015, and there are so many typos! I'm assuming he did this in an incredible rush.

    It won't affect my application will it? Mainly worried about the date part :/
