    How is it possible to get a U in psychology



    My brother gets paid 30k after tax and he only started working this year (going to his graduation soon actually), should have got on that London time.

    And isn't it the more better you do, the more likely you are to get allocated at one of your top preferences? I remembering him having to rank like 70 hospitals and he got his first/second choice for his first term, can't remember now
    Yeah so your application is based on academics and a separate test everyone does called the situational judgement test. The academics is based on your decile ranking from your year, any extra undergrad degrees, and any publications you have. That's all worth 50% of your application, the SJT the other 50%. Your overall score is out of 100, so the top dogs with scores of like 85+ will more or less get their top choices and so they work down the list in order of total score allocating people to their choices based on availability. But those with higher scores get priority which is fair enough.

    If your bro got into London he must have done pretty well. It's generally very competitive to get in, especially north-west thames and north-central thames.

    Alright guys no need to be rude about the whole psychology thing... I did AS and A2 psychology in one year in my second year of sixth form because at the start of A levels I picked English Literature, Media Studies and Gov and Politics (yes only 3 subjects I know), the G&P teacher was diagnosed with cancer and left the school and there was nobody else to teach the subject at A level standards there was only 6 of us in the class so we were given the option of either doing Sociology or Psychology to carry on in one year and thus I chose psychology. So imagine how difficult it was juggling all that in my second year alone, that's still no excuse for the grade but still. I'm still happy with my A and B.

    There's really no need to be mean about it guys seriously
    Still, A-levels are piss when you compare them to uni exams. You can pass A-levels by just reading the textbook or doing past papers the week before. LP man....

    Can confirm. Only did it because teacher was a hot American girl.
    Psychology is full of really attractive girls. They're drawn to it like moths to a candle flame.

    couldn't agree more. i must admit i have a massive weakness for redheads so amy pond was automatically a 9+
    clara is next level though...
    Exactly this. I was in love with Pond as soon as I saw her. She's a 9 for me. But then when I saw Clara I just....I couldn't believe it. It has to be known that Eboracum very rarely gives out 10s, but she is one. I recently watched the Caretaker episode where she was a school teacher. In the words of Busted, I fight my way to front of class, to get the best view of her....yeah.

    Ebo

    I want to study law because I want to go into corporate/ company law. Handling the legal issues of large businesses and companies, I also wouldn't mind specialising in Media and entertainment law whereby I deal with the legal issues that celebrities, film companies, broadcasters etc etc may face Harvey Specter? Lul. He cute though :sexface:

    Due to last minute circumstances, I needed to remain in London for uni so had to decline going to Nottingham so I'm at the University of Hertfordshire which is absolutely lovely (I know it's technically outside London too but it's on the borders meaning it's only 40 mins away from my home!) I feel like a baby starting uni, still so fresh out of secondary school!

    Does that answer your q?
    Hello LP. Thanks for your response. Glad you're doing well. Corporate law is super competitive isn't it. My friend recently got a TC at the second attempt at applying. He was in a fortunate position though, as he'd done Classics at Durham and then his father funded his GDL and LPC. He got in after that. But for those without rich parents, I'm not sure how its affordable! When I saw Specter I wanted to be him so badly.

    Will give you a little fact LP...Eb's Auntie is a lecturer at your university. I won't say anymore than that, although I can confirm she's not in the Law department.

    When I'm in government (I do Politics), I'll need a lawyer to ensure my bills win challenges, so I'll give you a shout. :cool:

    That's so awesome!! Ebo you've got me all paranoid now, watch me explore the uni for the rest of the year saying to all the staff "Do you happen to have a nephew who's on the student room by the username of Eboracum by any chance?"

    Wow, small world I guess.

    Yeah I need to start thinking about the TC's and stuff but luckily my uni has their own LPC programme so that's a bonus. The law school I feel is very underrated actually.

    I won't come cheap though luls :cool: lol jk jk

    Thanks for this Hayley. I found it a really interesting and inspiring read. You did awesome. Particularly the comeback from dropping out. I'd have hit rock bottom if I dropped out of uni, so to come back to such success was awesome. I imagine you'll go on to be one of those power women in business that I read about in Forbes magazine. I'll come and work for you one day.
    Thanks Ebo you smooth talker

    I find it hilarious the Man United forum has become a careers advice page.. kinda nice in a way for people that speak to each other every single day about one subject and one subject only, to branch out a bit and help each other. Even if it is technically against the rules

    This is what the International Break does though eh? 2 weeks off club football and this place is basically the UCAS forum.. banter.

    Edit: Whoops just realised the UCAS jokes been dropped before.. my bad

    Grad schemes means that you will get a good salary as long as you are able to get onto one, you should be eligible for them. Management would get you a good salary e.g. or recruitment.

    Also have you considered going into law? Eco you're probably not going to get a place at uni unless you have done at least Maths AS level.

    **** uni doe. Wish I never went. Should have finished my education at 18, learned The Knowledge and become a black cab driver. Would be bringing in decent bucks right now and for the rest of my life, and can work my own hours. I think I'd prefer it that way. I'm not cut out for education and high pressure jobs.

    Not spending my football posts trolling United thread any more. Got boring since you lot are getting into good form. Plus mutual interests I'd rather you lot there than another specific club but those slime-balls weasel their way in every season

    Also concur with what people are saying wrt university. There are better ways to make money than being in high pressure jobs but you need a plan for that. Only in my last year did I find out how much money I'd realistically be on if I don't get grad scheme and it's really a waste of time.

    12-20k based on a 40 hour week apparently. You might be thinking of train drivers, think that's a well-paid job that people don't expect to be.

    True say.

    My D1 exam(my lowest maths mark) I got a B when I'd only started learning the module two days before the exam. No lie bunked off all D1 lessons. It's effort when you have to commit stuff to memory than commit it to logic. Probably why my degree was so boring. Should have just done a maths degree tbh. Probably would have failed medicine if I got onto it anyway.

    Na in London you'll get much more if you're motivated enough, commission based jobs is uncapped potential, also you can get paid tips. If you do night jobs you'll make more money. If you worked hard enough, little to no breaks in a 40hr week you can get close to 50k in London.

    Nah. I know train drivers are well paid. But so are black cabbies.

    Btw. Anybody knows how to voluntary cause goosebumps? Been trying meditation etc. the past week, can only do it when listening to music, when there's a lot of synth etc and there's an amazing chord/series of chords played. E.g. when I listen to Jamiroquai Scam, the final bit gets me goosebumps sometimes.

    Also who plays a musical instrument here?
