    what if i didn't retake some AS and got predicted AAA? would that mean i'm eligible for loads of london medical schools??
    A warning for if you do decide to resit some exams, quite a few medical schools say that your A levels must've been sat between two years and that they don't accept resits. Most will say on their website if they do or don't but I applied last year and all of them didn't accept my English language GCSE resit(done in the same academic year as the first time). If you do plan to resit any AS exams you would need to call the unis to check if they'd accept them.

    Which universities didn't accept ur resit English language, wth?
    Anyway resitting AS modules is fine, as long as the Alevels are completed within two years then they aren't considered resit applicants. Pretty sure all universities allow that.

    I applied to Sheffield, Manchester, Durham and Leicester last year. Not sure about Durham, but the other three didn't use the resit. It didn't really matter for Sheffield, Durham and Manchester as they just had requirements (I got a B the first time and an A the second) but Leicester worked on a point scoring system and for any of those unis they look at maths, sciences and English language and then will take into account your other, highest graded GCSEs until they reached the number of GCSEs they use.

    Some unis do state on their website whether they consider resits or not but even if it's still within the two years, it may still be worth ringing up the unis to check.

    Anyone doing VR on medify and feel like they're not improving? I'm consistently getting 25-27/40 on the timed practices it's annoying me. I always have to guess the last 8 questions

    RTFQ (read the ****ing question).....Dont miss the word "not" in some questions
    Be TOTALLY disciplined with timing
    NEVER PANIC......deep breathes is the way to go
    Go in with a positive mindset because a negative one will not help you one bit. Most likely if you've prepared hard and smart, you will do well.
    But hey if you **** up......its BMAT time

    Perhaps its the strategy that you are using that is making you get those consistent marks.
    When i was doing it, i changed my approach for example, i did the t/f/ct questions first and made sure i got the highest marks on those before moving on to the reading comprehension

    Yeah I do those first as well, I think I need to skip the passages in the middle because they are usually the longest and attempt the end questions they are shorter and look a bit easier to understand. Also have you done your test?

    are the passages in the actual test as obscure and hard to understand as they are in medify for VR?
