    As I will be going to Brighton for biomedical science in September, I was wondering, to those at or who have now finished university, how did you organise yourselves and your notes? What was your prefered method of note taking and keeping (i.e. did you use notebooks per module, folders and file paper or something else?). I just want to get a rough idea on the best way to organise so I can plan what I will need!

    Hi, can someone please answer my query? So I want to learn about genes and go into cancer research after getting PhD. But is the degree too easy considering it is just molecular biology and not something harder like chemistry or physics? Can something like moecular biology involve stuff to do with quantum chemistry or biophysics (Something I am interested in but I feel research is more productive in biomed sciences). Also, what is the potential of molecular bio in cancer research? Do medical doctors know as much about molecular biology as someone who studies pure molecular biology? Is it a respectable degree? I need some opinions please!

    Hey guy, I am shortly due to be started Biomedical Science at Aston University but was wondering, is it more common, for graduated, after their degree to go into Graduate Entry Medicine or a Job in a lab (e.g. an NHS Pathology Lab)?
    Thank you

    well usually biomeds go in many different directions, the most common thing i've seen is continuing on to do masters.

    I personally want to apply to GEM (anyone else applying this year, hit me up!)

    A lot of people in my year have now started working as lab assistants.

    Some people have gone on to do teaching training.

    One girl I know has done a law conversion course and she is doing really well.

    So your possibilities are endless if you do well. Im not a fan of working in a lab as the job is mainly laborious now, the machines do most of the job for you. So no thinking is involved.

    As you go through the course, you will begin to see the areas that interest you, for me it was my stem cells module.

    Thank you for the comment
    That's really good to hear, that there are so many different routes that I could take!
    I like the sound of GEM also to be honest :rolleyes:
    Yes, I have heard that, maybe I will get steered in a different direction, who knows :dontknow:
    Just out of interest what have you got far in your degree? (First/2.1/2.2...)

    Funnily i didn't choose to do biomed to get into medicine afterwards, I think it just happened after finishing the course! exactly who knows.

    I finished last year and i got a 2:1

    But it is definitely a promising thing to go into :rolleyes:
    Ah well done, that's really good! How hard is it to get a First in Biomedical Science just out of interest?

    thank you, lets hope i get in

    it's not hard at all, tbh I had no experience of studying before going into uni so I struggled with learning how to study at first, I mastered it by second year. Also, I had really bad life circumstances at the time so I think I could have got a 1st if I pushed just a little harder.

    I found the degree wayyy easier than A levels again this could be because I had no idea how to study during my A levels.

    Btw there was one guy in my year who got into medicine with a 2:2 as he got a really high UKCAT.

    So with biomed I think the harder you work the better your chances, but it's never the end of the road

    Yes, best of luck my friend
    I am literally exactly the same, I found A level fine because I didn't study during GCSE's, whereas people who aced GCSE's struggled with A levels :eek: I hope like you, I properly learn during my degree, I really would like a first, but I suppose everyone wants one, it's just a case of getting one That's unlucky, but I am sure you still have a great chance, what universities are you looking at for GEM? Also, have you done UKCAT?
    That's really impressive I must say :eek::rolleyes:
    Yes, that is one of the reasons as to why I picked the degree

    Thank you same to you!
    you will, it's all about what you make out of it. You can mature greatly in uni and this course is actually very interesting and will help you understand the fundamentals of medicine. Also you will get one if you really want, its really not hard.
    yeah Im trying my absolute best to prepare, but im not a typical medicine applicant and by no means competitive! Everything right now depends on my UKCAT, which is in one week's time :afraid:
    ive got a blog on my medicine entry process :http://khaleesiofmedicine.blogspot.co.uk/
    my university of choice would be newcastle but they look for a really high UKCAT.
    You should make the most out of the chance you have, I wish I could have gone to such a prestigious university!
    ...Although I do hear they manufacture pricks! :mmm:

    Yes, I guess everything is what you make of it, yes, I am really interested in Biology, I hope to do really well, and actually really try at something for once instead of being half assed :L
    Well seriously, good luck on your UKCAT, you have been extremely helpful, you sound like you deserve a high score!
    I will have to check it out
    Newcastle has a very good medical school, good luck, ahahah
    What university are you currently at? Do you mean make sure I try and get into a prestigious medical school when it come to it?

    aww thank you ill let you know how I do!
    Haha and that! but its certainly more prestigious than where i went. So no worries if people from my uni excelled im sure you will too!

    That's good, at least you are consciously making progress :rolleyes:
    I would have to agree, things you have an interest in and much easier to learn than those that stimulate monotony
    Awesome, cheers! I am going to Aston :cool:
