    They are aware that A*AA is high and with no data to predict this new A level, and the applications submitted, most who achieve AAA will get through. Forth A level no longer counts

    On the email it says 160hours will be given maximum credit. Is that from one experience only or across 4 experiences?*

    No they don't ,unless they suspect that you are cheating ,or you are claiming to have done something that is illegal ,or some operation like you assisted in a bypass hahaha

    .
    December to March ,in no particular order. If they call you late, doesn't mean your application is poor , just logistics.. So no response is good news

    All experience.. you realise 160 hours is only 4 weeks of full time employment.
    This makes UG not to be disadvantaged, for any graduate doing HCA work full time, it would be equivalent to a student volunteering every Saturday.
    I asked him if this R&R doesn't disadvantage UG and he said that they know that and will be expecting the students to jot down whatever experience, even from school

    I didn't get my roles and responsibilities form sent to me. I will call them tomorrow ASAP but I'm really stressing about this. Anyone else in the same position??

    Ps. I've definitely met and exceeded the screening criteria.

    I had a look at it yesterday but I haven't actually started writing anything.

    Do you think it's worth putting down something I did three years ago if it was a really great healthcare experience?

    Or should I stick with non healthcare things that I've done more recently ?

    Hello there. If you are interested in applying to Keele or has already done so feel free to share your stats, any questions or advice.

    My question is how does Keele look at the UKCAT?
    hi there,
    i'm an eu student, i have 90% predicted in advanced english language, biology and chemistry in the polish finals, scored 1960 in the ukcat, do you think my chances are real? plus i undertook some work experience... any advice? is that true that keele is strict against eu applicants?

    thanks in advance!

    I'm having the same issue deciding on what to write about! If I was you i'd go for the healthcare experience as Keele seem quite keen on that and it does say preferably in the last three years so you should be fine.

    Finding it hard to get everything down into the character limit and the questions are a bit awkward with all the little details they want

    It's a maximum of 1100 characters including spaces for questions 1 and 2 then a maximum of 850 characters including spaces for the third question. Don't worry about the word count, it's about the characters.

    I'm in the same position as you two but final year Pharmacy student. Have excellent voluntary work with an individual but more than three years ago. All my other experiences have generally been with a variety of people and not a particular individual. Any thoughts?
