    I know I didn't score highly as I don't have any Alevels think I only scored 6 on the academic side of things and 26 for the ukcat.
    I'm hoping the take in to account that I don't have Alevels but still managed to get a degree.
    Have you done another level 3 equivalent?

    I turn 28 next month so not even a year younger lol.
    No I started uni on a diploma course which needed GCSE's and then my exam/essay ressults were good enough in year 2 that they let me switch to the degree for my final year.
    Definitely not old though, Warwick's oldest medical student had there 50th birthday in the 1st year of medical school.

    Well that makes me feel better, been spending too much time in the exeter MBBS5 forum feeling old at 22.

    That said the oldest GEP at George's while I was there (Biomed and MRes) started the course at 55.

    For those who've received a rejection from King's, was this for the 5 year or 4 year course?
    I still haven't heard anything from my choices and was expecting rejections straight away with a UKCAT of 640

    Ohh okayy, I've applied for the 5 year but even still 640 is a pretty low score.
    Best of luck with the rest of your choices

    Fantastic, well done!

    Provided I get the full 15 points for my access course (I got the highest grades I could for it) then my score would be 59.5 so fingers crossed!

    Anyone know how much kidneys or liver lobes sell for? Would it be enough to fund the 5 year?! Just planning ahead for next year...
