    Go through each criteria:
    • Only steel or cement companies (i.e. no textile companies)
    • Turnover more than 1000
    • Profit more than 10% of turnover.
    First limit stock options with the broadest, less calculation-intensive, criteria:
    • Only steel or cement companies 8
    • Turnover more than 1000: Of the 8-1=7
    • Profit more than 10% of turnover of the 7
    • One of the simpler ways to calculate the number of companies where Profit is more than 10% of turnover is by looking at the graph. Any company with its profit 10% more than turnover, must be positioned above an imaginary diagonal that cuts across the graph. We’ve included an annotated diagram below. The blue dotted shapes are above the line and meet the other two criteria.
    Therefore in total 4 companies meet the Investor’s criteria.

    I don't do as well as I hope.

    I get 550 normally in it!

    I am aiming for ~650 avg so need to do as well as possible in QR as my AR sucks and my VR... Well, let's not even talk about that!

    So I keep seeing these come up.

    Newcastle/Durham have released the previous UKCAT thresholds and last year their average was 682.5

    When putting your choices you don't have to put a fifth non-medicine choice but it's very risky. You can say about taking a gap year and reapplying but if you don't get 3 As then reapplying isn't really a realistic option and you'd need to go through the graduate route.

    Depending on the what you've applied for as your fifth choice depends on whether you would need to do another personal statement. Biomedicine is a popular fifth choice for those applying for medicine and most unis know that and will still give you an offer. I applied for medicine last year and as my fifth applied for biomedical sciences at Sheffield and was offered a place. At the end of the day if you're worried then contact the uni and ask whether they'll take the medicine personal statement or if they would want another one.

    Medify just released a personal statement course. Worth investing in, it like £10 and they review you PS for you after you draft it. Worth a shot!
    When they review it do they add comments on what's bad/good? Like how do they do it?

    It's not very risky. Applying as a graduate is by far more risky then applying as a resit candidate. Universities accept resits and i know many that were offered a place.

    Hi,

    Two reviewers assess your personal statement and give seperate feedback on your personal statement, e.g. what to change and will give you tips on how to showcase your strengths. Bare in mind though that it doesn't come with the course, as the course only gives you tips on how to write your personal statement, whereas the review is seperate and is £55. To be fair, I haven't submitted mine for review so I don't know what to expect. They say that they look for 8 categories on your personal statement and give you a mark based on that. Just look it up on their website and it shows you in more detail.

    Hope this helps!

    Some may accept AS resits but most say that your A levels must be done over two years. Some unis will allow resits due to medical reasons and I do know someone who was asked for A*AA, got AAA but was close to an A* and so the uni said they would accept that one resit.

    Graduate entry is risky, you need at least a 2.1 for most unis, but it may be your only option unless you're willing to resit both years of A Levels

    Do you know how long it takes to get the review back after you've sent your personal statement off?

    You don't have to resit both years of A-levels. You can fall short by a grade on one subject and just resit one unit to meet the requirements. Although if you apply as a resit your options are fewer, the chances of getting an offer from them universities is just as likely as they would be elsewhere with achieved grades because they don't take your resit into consideration.
    I'm pretty sure applying to a university having to do a resit of some units by the end of the year (which you have already done) and having a good chance of getting an offer is much more reasonable than doing a three year degree of which you don't necessarily have a passion for and then applying for medicine with an even slimmer chance.

    writing an outstanding personal statement is difficult. Any useful tips anybody??? pls
    There is plenty of advice online about the general structure such as what to write in each paragraph and I also highly recommend ISC medical book. But a lot of medical PS are similar so try to put something in that makes you stand out such as showing that you have ALL the NHS values listed in the NHS constitution which are: Respect and dignity, Commitment to the quality of care, Compassion, Improving lives, Working together for patients, Everyone counts. And also, a major achievement could make you stand out, for me it was national level sports. For others it may be an amazing academic achievement such as a GOLD in the chemistry Olympiad (i didn't even get bronze haha)
    Listen to this....one of my friends got rejected by sheffield because of his PS, however he got a interview for Bristol because of his PS. I read his PS and tbh it covered a lot! So the lesson from that is make sure that if you are applying to a PS uni, make sure you put in there exactly what they want. For example, last year sheffield had a list of qualities (about 10) that they look for, to grade the PS. Sometimes for written communication you have to play the game. Its a bit like A level biology where your answers which may be correct may not be in the mark scheme and hence you do not gain credit!
    Good luck!

    Hi,

    I think it takes three days, but not too sure as I haven't tried it for myself yet.
