    You should have got an email with a user and password to log in to mysis.qmul.ac.uk . On that site, you just click enrolment and it should let you do the pre enrolment stuff and make an appointment if you want to do an early enrolment.

    I applied for Mile End because of the ensuites & the diversity of subjects I'd be able to interact with, but ended up with Floyer House (Whitechapel) and am pretty happy with it - ultimately it's only for a year and both halls are only half an hour away, so whichever one you pick, it probably won't make too much of a difference!
    Being at Whitechapel will (hopefully!) mean getting away with getting out of bed later too!

    For all those who haven't found it yet, here is the reading list : http://www.smd.qmul.ac.uk/undergradu...ion/111400.pdf

    I only bought the first 2 books, and there is an error: you should buy the SEVENTH edition of the first book, not the SIXTH (although ultimately it doesn't matter too much - I checked this with Bart's!)

    Additionally, you may find it cheaper to get these books off of Amazon - the first two books in the bundle cost £75 from their recommended retailer, but I was able to get the books from Amazon for £43
    Would you be able to provide me with a link on Amazon for those books you got.
    Thanks

    Hi guys, I'll possibly be applying to Barts for 2015 entry.

    My UCAS tariff is 650 (4 A star predictions, an A star prediction for EPQ and Additional Maths FSMQ), but I think my UKCAT is a bit on the low side at 690, band 1.

    I've looked at the admission statistics for 2014 entry, and a mid-range example stated was 640 UCAS tariff, and 710 for the UKCAT, which I guess is pretty similar to mine. I'm not sure, but I'd like to think that there has been a UKCAT deflation this year (just for solace), but also because last years mean was about 2650, and this year, it's about 2550 (although this could change, since it's only valid for tests taken before 8th August).

    In all honesty, do you guys think I'll have a chance of getting an interview at Barts?

    (10 A stars for GCSEs, but I don't think that's very relevant for Barts).

    Hi there!

    Just follow this link, click on "selection criteria", and at the top, just click "Admissions data: the 2014 admissions cycle". A PDF file should open up.

    Hi, I think you might be calculating your tariff in terms of your achieved qualifications. Barts look at your predicted A level grades, and determine your UCAS tariff from that.

    For example, if you got 4 As for your AS levels, and have taken on 3 A levels with 3 A star predictions, your tariff would be 140 + 140 + 140 + 60 = 480. Then, you add on any other points from other "tariffable" qualifications.

    Hope this helps!

    wow so just having a levels is nowhere near enough if they want 750 ucas :[
