    87% grads? Where did you find this out though? If it's true they might as well pack it in and call it extended GEP.. school leavers shouldn't waste a space on their UCAS if Barts openly favour GEPs like this.
    Even ignoring the GEP issue, I heard Barts were now ranking applicants by predicted grades? Seems a wasted choice now unless you can persuade your teachers to predict A*A*A*... :dontknow:

    That's Bath for you- they've got influence everywhere and they are very protective of their privacy.

    I had one before for putting a link on here to an embarrassing bodies anatomy game. Supposedly that was linking to nudity.

    I got some from very exasperated mods last year. Although at the time It was the peak of the Bath thing and had been spreading it as far as possible.

    Do you reckon I could make some quick cash by knocking up a Bath med website and charging £25 per prospectus?

    Well, last I heard, getting away with committing massive fraud was a fairly key minimum requirement.

    They are. It's an absolute joke. They're doing it because they're so obsessed with pushing themselves up the league tables even though nobody really gives a **** about them apart from moron, morons which frankly I don't want to meet in medical school.

    I am with you on that. glad mine isn't like that. Yet.

    We are just having less and less people involved in ICSM. But then as a traitor myself I can't complain.
    Like going to Imperial events over ICSM? Mreh, that's not that bad. At least then if it shuts down its because the majority of people don't want it, unlike QM who are trying their hardest to shut down the union by force.

    The amount of people I get quoting me in threads asking me about Bath/PMs/etc is insane. I love my sig <3, it lets me troll without even trying.

    If they go to imperial stuff I don't notice it. I do because I am involved in the dance soc at imperial rather than the ICSM one (they do totally different things so actually not that strange). But I hear complaints from other medics that more and more people are not going to bops and other even'ts. The sports teams do fine I think, though the did get a hit from having pitchers banned.

    What are they doing to shut it down? I mean there is always talk about our bar being closed (tbh it makes a loss so I can see where they are coming from)

    people don't go because the fun and frivolous has been replaced by the glum and serious (w/ overbearing pseudo-homosexual vibes) and it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy - for example hastings used to be beer and jeer, now it's like question time :C

    meh, that's imperial for you. I knew what I signed up for, and tbh I quite enjoy, never been one for drinking till I puke into the communal orange bucket
