    A facebook group would also be great!
    This is a good idea.

    I guess they've yet to start looking at our applications.

    Hi, I'm a mature student looking at the brand new Medical Sciences and Engineering degree.

    I have 4A* 8A and 1B at GCSE Then an Access to Medicine/Dentistry/Pharmacy/Medical Science diploma with 39 credits @ distinction and 6 @ merit, which by far exceeds their 18 credits @ distinction criteria. I worked full-time whilst I did this, front-line NHS.

    I am also sitting an accelerated Chemistry A-Level this year ie. 2yrs in 1, (Chemistry is where my merits came from), tutor has predicted me A*, again I continue to work full-time in the same job.*

    My personal statement is written for Medicine, but I have emailed admissions to ask if I can provide a separate one. * *

    Do you think I stand a chance? I'm 50/50 about getting into Medicine this year and this is my ideal non-medical choice. Intake is only 30 students though so I expect it will be competitive.*
    Hi, did they get back to you and say it is ok to apply with a medicine personal statement or do you have to send a different one ?

    Hiya I've heard nothing yet unfortunately. With it being a new course this year I wonder if they are still smoothing out who deals with enquiries etc lol

    Hi, hoping to apply to Econ I'm international, so I did the iGCSE's instead, here's what I got: 7A*s including early entry maths, 4As. currently doing the IB diploma, predicted 40 but hoping to bring some grades up. I also do further maths so its 40 + 5/6, hopefully i get predicted a 6 in further since I've been getting 7s in the recent tests. UCL is definitely my reach but I really hope I get in!

    Lol, yeah I tried emailing them too but haven't received a response, I really like the look of the course but if they don't accept medicine personal statements I think I will just apply to biological sciences instead. Should I try calling them or emailing someone else because I really need to know before I apply.

    What are you AS's, AS grades and GCSEs like?

    I have a C in English Language which is worrying me even though I have good extenuating circumstances.

    At AS I got AAAA for Sociology, History, Politics and Applied Business. Dropped the last one. Predicted A*AA. Still kind of worried about my GCSE Eng Lang though.
    GCSEs I got 5 A*s, 4 As and a B (in art)
    AS i got AAAB in history, english lit, psychology and german, but I've dropped german now.
    To my knowledge I'm predicted A*AA (we haven't been told our english but I'm assuming I'll be predicted an A haha)
    I wouldn't worry about the english language grade tbh - especially if you have a good reason as you say!
    How is your personal statement going? I'm having a little trouble writing mine because I'm applying for history at UCL, but applying for history & english at some other unis!

    Give them a ring and refer to the e-mail you sent. I'm limited with my options so not so urgent for me. But if you could let me know what they say I'd be very grateful *

    Shouldn't the admin be someone fromt he UK? (plus I'm blind and wouldn't really be able to monitor the group.) I'd love to create one, though.
