    Congrats! Why do you think your interview went dreadfully? That's quite a high offer tbh, I'd expect an offer of AAAC for 4 A levels. My interview went so badly, in my feedback they mentioned I was too nervous three times lol. I hope you get the grades, fingers crossed for you! Btw how do you feel your exams went?
    Aha thanks I think it'd hit me really hard if I didn't get the grades - Medicine's so tough got some rejections too. Worried about getting that A* in Bio or Chem tbf.

    I thought it went badly because when I was asked, "How would you resolve the Junior Doctor Crisis?" after I finished talking one of the interviewers said "That's not a good answer. You're going to have to better than that." But I think that was the only major slip so I made the cut. I'm really sorry to hear that tho I honestly thought you got in.

    What grades do u need and where are you going?

    So this is my 2nd time around waiting for A2 results and it doesn't seem to get any better, though at least this year I know there is no point in even trying to sleep. I am just hoping I don't have to go near clearing again as it was rather traumatic last year with some rather horrible people on the other end at points. How ever my insurance this year was my firm last year and if I had the grades I have now, I would have got in last year xD. Since last year I was 1/400 marks away from a grade boundary in one subject and 1/600 marks away from a grade boundary in another. So I will just hope that with grade inflation being gone for now I will be able to get in.

    Did you do as maths? Because


    I was going through some family issues and it's unfortunate cause I'm a student who works hard and I was predicted high anywayC1 - expect lowest lowestttt 66-67C2- 73M1 - 58 ( really bad day, my morning involved yelling and soothing crying from family ) - it could be much higher depending on the examiner since my mistakes were like making my coefficient of friction negative, copying the mass of one of the masses on the pulley wrong things like that. Hope they go easy on the minusing. Absolutely petrified. It's all I can think about Do you think I'd manage the

    Thought offers were usually on 3 subjects didn't think 4 alevels were needed?

    Are examiners reports released alongside grade boundaries?
    For AQA yes although you need to ask your teacher (or someone with access to post here)

    I'm only AS and I know the feeling

    I can't sleep
    I know we can always apply post-A2 if we really mess up but if I really mess up its going to wreck me personally... I'll struggle to get over it 😓

    I was asked, "How would you resolve the Junior Doctor Crisis?"
    Is that what Medicine interviews are like?

    I would have been like 'B!tch I'm applying to do Medicine, not Politics! I wanna learn about organs and illnesses n 'sh!t, not how to shorten NHS waiting times!'

    Haha ikr that one was a bit of a curve ball. But tbh it was all over the news. My friend got asked in their Medicine interview, "If you could bring back three people from the dead and have a dinner party with them, who would they be?" Glad I didn't get that one
