    Have you guys got Kings as your first choice? I know league tables don't matter too much but I'm still concerned about the lowly position of Kings'. Also the huge student intake is not ideal. So unsure about what my first choice is. Ofcourse id be delighted to get in anywhere though.
    I am a little worried about the really low scores on feedback and help...

    I'm a bit worried but that's the only thing that's pushing it down, you've got to remember that feedback is easily corrected and if kings shoots up next year and you rejected it because of that you'd feel really stupid! I'm a big believer in forget the league tables!

    I believe that too! Hope the feedback/help issue gets sorted out ASAP. Kings has all the resources, fantastic campus, great location, hospitals etc etc but just some reviews I've heard from students I know saying they get little help.

    Hope this improves next year for us (if we get in)

    Has anyone ever received any sort of decision/message from King's at the weekend?
    Literally can't stop myself from checking the portal constantly, even though I'm sure they probably don't work weekends

    Hi, I'm in year 12 now and I was wondering if I would have a chance for King's with this:
    GCSEs: 4A*s, 8As, 1B (short course), C in add maths FCMQ
    AS level predictions: AAAA
    Work experience/voluntary work: volunteer at a school for disabled children, work experience at a hospital church service work part-time at a children's learning centre. I have also previously worked for a summer autism play scheme, at a charity shop and done 1 week wrk experience at a hospital.
    Extra curricular: Grade 8 violin, grade 7 piano, member of Kirklees Youth Symphony Orchestra, doing Gold Duke of Edinburgh

    Kings are extremely A* GCSE heavy, it may not be the wisest choice, if you want London Bart's or UCL may be a better option due to the A*s

    Just smash the UKCAT and you will get an interview. I recommend taking it in the summer between Year 12 and Year 13.

    Hi

    I got exactly those GCSEs apart from the FSMQ where I got a B. I am also applying for medicine and recently had a interview with kings college. I don't think those grades will let you down too much if you can ace your UKCAT and write a great personal statement. Just work hard to get the As you're predicted for AS as well and you will do great.
