    You ask about the 3rd reason or abt the hospitals? Well, I am based in QMC this year which is the hospital med school is located in so can't really say anything about other hospitals. I can though quote the dean and say that it allows you to meet different types of patients. Like, you have "city patients" and "rural patients" which apparently differ greatly (as you can imagine) so being exposed to both makes you more prepared for your career. Hmm not sure what else j could say about hospitals....if I were you I would probably mention the traditional format of the course or say that you like what medsoc is offering you (here you can mention some of or societies such as teddy bear hospital or open art surgery and say how you would love to get involved)


    I'm afraid I can't answer your question as I haven't done a levels or ib. I'm an EB student. However, for gcse equivalents I revised weekend before and day before each exam. As to extra subjects, EB forces you to do at least 33hrs a week and includes 2 languages, maths, philosophy, history, geography and gym. In my ps I used this fact as an advantage and mentioned how knowing few languages came handy during my we. However in my offer they only included bio, Chem and average so you don't really have to worry about it
    Okay cool thanks though
    IMO The EB is more similar to the IB than A levels because with an ib you do more subjects but with a levels you specialise to only 3/4 subjects in more depth. :yep:

    It is similar indeed. For example, for maths we used IB books and past papers but hat may be cause we had a new teacher and she used to teach IB for ages before she came to our school.
    But as j said, it doesn't really makes you any difference of you take Ib or A levels. You will just have to explain thousand times that you didn't do A levels

    Does anyone know what the dress code is specifically??? Is a suit expected or would it be deemed over dressed?

    Thanks! =)

    Dress in a way you expect doctor to dress. So smart. Not smart casual but smart. Suit is was most boys do

    Not sure if it's near each hall but surely it costs you extra money. In my halls, SPC you need a special pass that ylu must purchase

    Have any rejections actually been handed out so far? (pre-interview that met basic criteria)- just wondering whether everyone left at this stage is having their personal statements looked at, or if we could still be in that bottom 50%

    assuming thats 8 full A*s, you're on 45 out of a possible 52

    I reckon 45 or maybe 46 will be the cut-off for the 1st pre interview round.

    Best of luck
    Thank you! have been called for interview late February
