    Interview!

    Email came at 12:30
    Well done has anyone else heard today? I rang and my application is still with the tutors and they are deciding if my degree has enough chemistry content. If after all this time I fail on that I'll be so disappointed, because it's something I can't change and reapply with

    Biology with microbiology, I've done quite a few Chem modules this semester meaning I didn't have the grades when I sent off my transcript but I'm hoping its enough. I got a first in Infection Science which had quite a few biochemical tests in but as for the other second and first year modules they were more biology based with a bit of chemistry. I hope they allow for third year as most of these modules do have chemistry in them like toxicology and current advances in the biosciences. So it's just a waiting game. I did a level chemistry but at the time I had a lot going on at home as my mum was really ill (which is on the roles and responsibilities form) so I hope I'm not penalised for it!

    Aww, I'm sorry fingers crossed for you, it's crazy the whole lack of chemistry thing I do neuroscience with pharmacology and dont think they count the pharmacology modules as chemistry even though we read medicinal chemistry papers for them :/ have you explained about your mum and stuff like not on the roles and responsibilities form to see if they will give you a bit of leeway with the a level Chem? You should hear soon either way so massive good luck! Is this your last option?

    I know I did mention it on the phone but I'm not sure if they were interested really. Yeah this is my final shot so I'm really hoping they do give me an interview it's driving me crazy!

    Thought they let people take the GAMSAT to make up for lack of Chem?

    I took the gamsat this time but they've not mentioned it and I haven't told them, do you think I should? I'm not sure what I got, I think it was 55?

    Hey everyone! I'm a current first year med student at Keele, we have created a Facebook page for the 2016 offer holders to get to know each other so check it out and add yourself. You can also post questions for current students about anything regarding Keele life and the actual course. It's called Keele University Medicine 2016. Good luck to everyone else still waiting!
    I can't find the page, can you send the link please

    "Applicants with a 1st/2i honours degree in a non-science subject may be considered for the A100 course if they have taken the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) and achieved either:- an overall score of 55 or more with a section III score of 58 or more supported by a score of 50 or more in all other sections OR- an overall score of 58 or more with a section III score of 55 or more supported by a score of 50 or more in all other sectionsthese applicants must also take the UKCAT. Allowances will be made for graduates whose A-level grades do not meet the usual criteria, as long as sufficient evidence of academic ability in the sciences is demonstrated."

    It says this on their website, don't know much about the GAMSAT as haven't taken it but definitely worth telling them if you meet their requirements

    Can anyone who has had an interview confirm for each station did you have two minutes to read the prompt and then three inside the room ?

    Guys,

    I could a pre-interview rejection. I sent an email asking why and they said they can't give me any feedback. Do you think it would be good to call? or no point? They said the reason is because I didn't achieve the required score for an interview, even though I met there UKCAT score, GCSE's were good and achieved 4As at AS level.

    On the email they said they couldn't give any individual feedback until April I think it was. Read the email again and see?

    Well I thought If I phone them that would be an alternative and they would give me a good reason.

    Sounds like you didn't score high enough on the R&R form. I'd jwait until April and then ask for feedback on your R&R form.

    Hello. Yes they do. My son is a first year, and I think they started on week 2 with opening the chest wall.
