    ... I like that there's the option for me to do an intercalated degree in the third year (I think).
    You have to do an intercalated degree at Cambridge. Same for Oxford - that's why they're 6 year degrees not the normal 5.

    All other medical schools also offer intercalation as options, though its sometimes a competitive process.

    Cambridge offers a bigger variety of choices for intercalation though.

    true but politics is a waste of time so going to the best place for politics means nothing. Especially for a degree HAH

    Definitely.. the predicted grades are the most important aspect. I remember the Oxford Admissions guy at the study day saying that as long as you can prove you can get the requirements and would make a good student (good PS or GCSEs) then they would consider it

    Heya,
    Well i've thought about that, but not sure what it entitles nor if i can get it even if i don't study music.I am not yet aware of how it works but was thinking about it haha
    Hi! 2nd year with choral scholarship here.

    It's quite uncommon to get a choral scholarship before starting, unless it's a really competitive scholarship. It's more common to join a choir you like that offers choral scholarships, and they audition once or more a year if there are vacancies. You DO NOT need to be a music student, in fact choral scholars usually aren't music students.

    Organ scholarships at undergraduate colleges are usually filled out before term starts, but there are some lurking around, and I know a few people who did apply for an organ scholarship after starting. The standard method is to apply in advance, though. Once again you DO NOT need to be a music student, although commonly organ scholars are.

    Hope that helps!

    If you think you can, don't hesitate to give it a shot. There's no harm in trying...
