    OFFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yr13
    Can't believe it! I thought for sure by now that I'd get rejected since they left it so late. And now thinking back to my interview, my answers really weren't all that great. I honestly didn't think I'd get Bart's. I was crazy for it at the time of my interview but that was when I thought I had no chance anywhere else. Now I have UCL too and I don't know what to do
    Good luck to EVERYONE! Hope you all get offers!
    Congrats! Are you international or home student?

    If you want a traditional old fashioned course choose UCL. If you want a modern course with PBL mixed with traditional teaching as well as patient contact from the offset choose Barts. Also everyone at Barts seemed much friendlier and down to Earth than at UCL, but this all my opinions and it's your decision so make sure you choose what will make you most happy

    To add on to Jack_smith969's point, its a five year vs a six year course, so the advantage for Barts is that you can start training as a FY1 earlier, and be ahead by about a year as compared to peers in UCL(you have the choice to intercalate in Barts, whereas, in UCL, they force you to do so). Also, you earn one extra year of income and pay one year less of school fees, if money is a concern.

      TEAM BL!!! Hmm well if you're unsure, how about you go to the post-offer holders day, talk to students, ask your personal questions, get a sense of the place and make your decision after that. You really have nothing to lose

      Lol. We already loss two years on the girls of our same batch. What is one extra year. If ucl offered me I'll go for it since the whoa factor is bigger. Then again I do hope barts does well so when we graduate people will go whoa too. Rankings do matter, esp to internationals since we need to land housemanship and residencies next time

      Ps if u havent done a degree and applied to any 5 year programme u will most likely end up doing the intercalated degree so it will be 6 ; although its always nice to have the option open - but most people do intercalate ....

      It seems not many year 13 A- level takers who are home students have heard back yet. 3 people in my school have been rejected from Barts. I hope Barts has offers to give next week. I dont want to be on the waiting list lol

      What effects do rankings actually have after graduating? Do they play a part when applying for FY posts or during registrar years?

      From what I can remember for the ucas tariff, there are no exemptions and it doesn't matter when you got the points either. I used my FSMQ as part of my points and I did that in y11 good luck with your application!

      It was a cut off combined with your UKCAT score. From what I've seen I think I was one of the lowest to be offered an interview this year (tariff 557 and UKCAT 715) and I've managed to get an offer. So I'm pretty sure you'll be fine if you get the grades you are predicted and a decent UKCAT score
