    in terms of accommodation, if you accept and unconditional offer do you go to the top of the list for your chosen halls, because theres a 99.9% that you will be going in september, compared to someone who might not meet their conditions etc? or is that just wishful thinking..

    So nervous now. Hearing from HYMS sometime in the next two weeks, and hopefully Keele too (since they're doing massive amounts of offers/ rejections atm)... suddenly doubting how well the interviews went! :eek:

    Got one interview left, have had two rejections, and waiting to hear from one post interview. Really nerve wracking! I'm so impatient, I just want to know. I'm spending all half term week on work experience in a hospital, which will be helpful for my interview hopefully, as up till now my major lacking point has been hospital-based experience! Not looking forward to trying to get college work done in the evenings though.

    Hard to say as it's pretty subjective ... Based on current leauge tables ucl wins comfortably but you can't read into them too much

    You have just made that up ... Plus world university leauge tables are essentially useless because they're almost entirely based on prestige rather than up to date student satisfaction etc etc. These are the up to date uk university med school rankings
    http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...ngs?s=Medicine

    http://www.theguardian.com/education...e-for-medicine

    http://www.timeshighereducation.co.u...linical-health

    The third one is world rankings and is pretty much invalidated by the fact kings college London is ranked so highly even though it's bottom 5 in the uk rankings ...

    My point is world university rankings are utterly useless ... They are almost exactly the same year to year because 90 percent of the score is just based on prestige
