    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!'
    (Original post by Hazard82)
    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
    I was asked in one of my Oxford interviews something along the lines of 'Can you explain to us what the current debate is with the junior doctors?' and after I had done that they asked what my opinion was. I answered that I'm neither a junior doctor nor a member of parliament so I can't really give an educated and justified opinion either way, to which they paused and went '...we actually hadn't thought of that and we've asked this question to all the applicants' :lol:

    Thanks so much for replying! I take biology, chemistry, maths psychology and GS so no coursework for me thankfully, but thanks for the advice! Think I am going to try and keep up with work all year round going over stuff so hopefully the cram time will be a lot less stressful! I literally did not work in ONE of my frees last year I just sat and talked (which is so bad as I had basically half frees as psychology is taught out of hours) so will try and not do that this year :rolleyes:

    I am scared I will do exactly the same thing! I want to do medicine and some courses are AAAb and some are like A*A*Aa-A*AAa. I have only really visited top unis like oxbridge and london ones as of yet as I have just been assuming I will get all As at AS but thats probably such a bad strategy. Going to see Bristol which is AAAb I think. What was your dream uni? I always wanted to go to Oxford but I recently found out about the percentage of A* measure and as I got 10A* and 3A's (our school made us do sooo many ) Its out unfortunately.

    I have already finished my personal statement (practically) as our school made everyone finish it in July (we had UCAS week where successful ex-students for all subjects and teachers checked and helped us change it til they were happy and signed us off) so hopefully thats all good.

    Thanks so much for the tips haha literally saved me now I am going to make sure I visit lower grade requirement unis too. Where did you apply and what course?
    I can PM you about medicine if you want?

    Is anyone else running over their exams in their head remembering small mistakes and thinking that it'll drop you a few grades?

    I've got an offer for LSE doing accounting and finance with a conditional offer of AAA. I'm pretty sure I got a B in maths, but I reckon my other two grades in psychology and sociology are A* and A*
    Do you think they'd let me in with A*A*B instead of AAA - the conditions of the offer were not specific to any subjects btw... Thanks

    Unfortunately it is unlikely, LSE are very harsh, but there is no point speculating! They might decide to be kinder on Thursday, it just depends on each separate application.

    In my LSE offer pack it said equivalent grades are not accepted, it must be your offer and I doubt they'll be too lenient I reckon I've missed my offer but I'm okay with going to my insurance

    Sorry for tagging you, but I was wondering whether it's possible to call a university now to be considered for another course with lower grades (that is already in clearing)? I have an offer of A*AA for English at Exeter but really think I'm more likely to get AAA! They have Art History and English for AAA-AAB and I adore the course and university. If I did get AAA I would seriously consider being released from my insurance to go for this course. But of course, it would be much easier to get a changed course instead! What do you think?
