    It's difficult because our scores are above average, but at the same time not exceptional. So far I'm thinking Leicester (first choice), Liverpool, Plymouth and Hull/york. My D in my 4th AS limits my choices a bit but I've got decent achieved A levels, so fingers crossed... How about yourself?
    Don't apply to Leicester unless you've got good GCSEs

    Yeah have a look, they use SJT twice http://www.hyms.ac.uk/docs/default-s...2017-entry.pdf
    Most of my friends found physics the hardest a level at A2. Yeah I would definitely have applied Manchester if my ukcat was a little higher, but I'm playing it safe haha
    Thank you I'm going to ring them up next week and ask them some questions then!😋 doubt I would swap Manchester out though because I'd say I stand an equal chance at HYMS and Manchester tbh, like I said I don't have many options😂

    Yes I've heard that too but thanks for telling me! And thank you! I do have quite a bit of caring work experience like I've volunteered at my local hospital since January and also went to a special school and helped out for a few weeks! So in terms of commitment I have that covered with the hospital hopefully! I also have kind of interesting WE too like I acted as a patient for doctors practicing for their CSA exam! Then I got to shadow my consultant paediatrician who looked after me for a year. On top of that I have a personal illness which is why I want to go into medicine so I have lots of experience in a healthcare setting and I do have care experience (not as much as many but it's about quality still and what I learnt from it so I hope that's enough). For Plymouth and St George's do they literally just look at your cut off and your min academics and invite you to interview? Liverpool I should meet their cut off but all depends whether they like my personal statement :/ I'm glad my score has kept my options mostly open though 😋 I was very worried I wouldn't even score high enough to apply this year 😂 where did you apply last year and what score did you have last year?

    That seems a lot of experience you have there, manchester should love that part of you! And it should be enough as long as you can say good points that you have learnt from it in PS/interview! Sorry to hear about the illness though
    Yeah thats all plymouth and st georges do! Yup thats correct for liverpool theres 4 main areas where they score the PS listed on the website. Now I'm going to have a longggggg chat with liverpool admissions team on monday so ill find out more aha.
    Last year i applied to Leeds, sheffield, exeter, aberdeen. I got interviews at leeds and sheffield. And i got 1880 for UKCAT without DA.

    Yeah I've seen the scoring but it works in my favour, they give points for achieved A levels and they score A*/A's the same at gcses.

    Be warned though, some med schools, I know some in Czech, keep failing you in your 4th year (or another year) and make it really difficult for you to pass as they want as much money out of your wallet as possible.

    I hope so! And it's fine at least my illness gives me some good work experience 😂 can you please PM me what Liverpool say because I need to make my personal statement good 😂 what was Sheffield like applying, you must have had a good personal statement last year then! Feel free to PM me if you'd prefer it!

    With 7a* and 3a (eng lang, maths and ICT)
    UKCAT 640 average (600, 610 and 710) Band 2
    AAAB at AS (A's in Bio, Chem, Maths)
    A*AA prediction, Chem is the A* and maths may also be going to A* as my average was 89%.
    WE/volunteering with disabled adults and children, at a hospice, GP and in medical research.
    I have already confirmed 3 choices however I am struggling with my last. Do I have the best shot at Leicester, Nottingham, Aberdeen or Bristol?

    Hi, I'm working my way through the 2017 Ultimate Guide 1200 Practice Questions and I'm just wondering if someone can tell me if I'm going mad or is there a mistake? The answers say the rule for set A is "number of dots=number of stars" (and for B number of dots=number of diamonds), but the first shape in set A doesn't fit the pattern? Here's a picture:

    Can someone tell me if its a mistake or am I missing something really obvious?

    Good gcses? Oxford.

    Otherwise... Cambridge (you need 2 A*s though).
    Thank you so much.. I got 13A*s but I feel I am leaning towards Oxford but still don't know. Any major differences I need to know about e.g. the course or life at the two diff unis?

    Ya ok thanks hahaha..... so would they also contextualise the information because I went to a GCSE state school as well..and the next best result in my year were 4A*s? Ox has prosection but cam has dissection available...does it really matter though? Plus I feel Ox allows more opportunities to socialise and it's more of a city than Cambridge. But then Cambridge is higher in the rank table.... so still don't know. I feel I might just stick with Oxford but
