    Compared to other colleges, how hard is it to get Univ for medicine? What college has the most meddies/ has the largest meddie intake?


    What made you choose Univ? What other colleges were you considering and why? What are the pros/ cons of being in Univ?

    Thank you!
    Your chances of getting into Univ for Medicine are the same as for getting into any college. The system is set up so that your choice of college won't affect your chances of getting a place. Univ has four medics per year roughly - I'm not sure how large/small that is!

    Univ is incredibly friendly and has a very good social atmosphere - although I'm sure you could say the same for most colleges!
    From experience visiting other colleges, our Porters are particularly helpful and incredibly kind.

    Univ is medium sized, not too large, not too small and owns a lot of the houses on the High Street so is in a good location. Right next to the Exam Schools as well which is good for lectures and exams!

    The buildings are pretty, there are always a lot of events and our bar is quite nice. Library is very well-stocked and open 24 hours. We have a pet tortoise who is incredibly cute, and run a lot of access events so there are always opportunities to give tours and talks.

    Food is very good and decently priced, and the accommodation is pretty decent - everyone gets a fridge and a sink in their room.

    Just generally a nice college, nothing really extreme about it in any regard

    Yet another awkward misconception from me what am i doing
    Probably a better question - what were your reasons for applying there? It seems to be known as one of the least pretentious colleges which is good
    2nd Cheapest drinks + 3rd highest number of oxford blues despite being a smaller college + college kittens+free use of the oxford university sports complex+free punts+Catherine Swales as a clinical tutor= Guaranteed application
    It's also a nice bonus that it looks like this:

    Just gonna contribute my 2 cents, the only difference your college choice makes is at interview stage-where some colleges will focus on your personal statement (e.g new) whilst others will focus on their own prepared questions/questions on a level chem, bio or physics (e.g hildas) or even on the nhs (e.g teddy hall)-depending on whether you're being interviewed by professors or practicing doctors.
    Also some colleges give weighting to the bmat post interview, such as St. John's, whereas others don't.

    Hopefully not!

    Overall quite well I think although they really varied - one of my History papers was great and one was abysmal, for example. I can't really tell how it's going to go!! Our Philosophy syllabus is brand new as well so no idea how our papers will be marked... Well I'll find out in August I guess! Is results day the same in Scotland? Apart from Maths were your exams good?

    Yeah I'm generally pretty happy with my exams bar Maths. But, (similar to your Philosophy) it's the first year of New Highers so only time will tell...

    August 4th for results, here. Is that the same as England?

    Couple more History applicants seem to be appearing...

      If I apply to Oxford instead of Cambridge, I will be applying for Biochemistry, but I guess they're somewhat related

      How are your super curriculars so far?

      I can imagine :eek:

      I also avoided my supervisor, not because he stressed me out but because I never had anything done...
      Really, don't get stressed about the EE, there's still plenty of time, but the sooner you get it over with the better. You'll have plenty of stuff to do next year without the EE looming over!
